Not a huge fan yet, but I saw an Ian Poulter ad for the new site that cracked me up. Not sure I can embed the video here from my phone but the link above should work.

The font is a complete and utter abomination. I have no idea how anyone in the business of website design could even consider using such a font. It's like they don't want people to read the articles. If I want to read anything, I'll have to copy the entire thing into Word or something.

 

Is there somewhere I can complain about this? Surely I must not be the only one reacting to the font selection. Using a proper font is a big deal on the Internet, and everyone making websites should know this.

 

I'm not a big fan of the rest of the layout either. I miss the upper right box with news and stuff. Now I'll have to scroll and click and look at lots of large pictures to find any news.

Wow, talk about a major step backwards,this web site truly sucks.  I no longer go to it if I want score updates, I just go to ESPN and get the info.

 

It is so cluttered and confusing it feels like you just can't go anywhere quickly onit.  I "hate it'.

I know this post is a few months old, but I agree with @Zeph more and more. It's really annoying that I have to scroll down more than my display's height just to get to the actual content. I also don't like having to use the drop down menu when I have the window at half size on my laptop (or even full size if I want Stats).

I'm not sure if it actually is harder to find content, but it sure as hell feels like it. I get lost much more often, and the entire website seems very convoluted. It used to not look as flashy, but at least it was straightforward. There's a lot of white space now that requires tons of scrolling.

I'm certainly not a web designer so I have no idea what they were going for (or than the fact that web design seems to be going towards more pictures, more sans serif fonts), but as a user I can definitely tell you the website is much harder and more annoying to navigate.

Really, really, do not like the PGA Tour website. I think it is a horrible user experience, particularly on a mobile device. I started using ESPN golf and find that to be fine for my needs. Found that I was not going to PGA Tour's site much at all and eventually deleted it from my favorites. Haven't used it in some time now.
