Chambless is the dumbest golf announcer.  It must suck being 38 and the number one golfer in the world with 14 majors and 79 career wins.  It would take that "old" any day.

That is some real shit. Tiger has a damaged body but he wasn't in a.. well, dammit, he was in a life-altering car accident. Hm. 

 

Maybe not quite as physically damaging as having a Greyhound bus shoved into your lap... ANYWAYS

 

Hogan was beat to hell and he won like a zillion majors after. So, take that, naysayers!

Tiger made a good choice but why on earth he traveled to Utah from Florida for the op is beyond me.

 

Nah, the pinched nerve is just a cover story - ever since those two polite young men with white shirts, ties, and bicycles knocked on his front door last month....

Am I the only one here who actually likes Brandel Chamblee? He's the only person on the GC who actually has an opinion. All of the other analysts are way too afraid to rip other players. Brandel is somebody people love to hate, and he makes an otherwise boring program fun to watch.

I don't think you're the only one, but you're in the distinct minority.

I think you have to define this a little better.  I believe that there are a whole bunch of us who like that he is on TV, and like that there is somebody out there who has an opinion.  Because you are absolutely right that he's interesting to watch; you're always wondering what he's going to say next.

 

But it's not so much "what nice thing is this man, whom I adore, going to say next," but moreso "Alright, what kind of diarrhea is going to come flying out of this dumbass's mouth now??"

 

I think that there are a lot of people who dislike him and think he's a pompous ass ... but like that he's on TV for the exact reasons you stated.

I'm with you. I like Nobilo better but I'm good with what Brandel throws out there. I don't always agree and acknowledge he can be off the wall with some of his opinions but I like that he's seemingly unafraid of the Tiger posse.

No.  Brandel likes Brandel a lot.  That is the problem.

My problem with Chamblee is that he's always wrong about swing stuff. It's really irritating because people do pay attention to what he says and he just spreads misinformation.

I think Brandel said yesterday or on Sunday that Tiger's problem's are from doing the heavy lifting and should give up the squats. Frank played it off but really Brandel?

 

I think Tiger knows his way around the weight room.

I'm going to have to echo this. I like that he's on TV, but he's like all the good parts of watching a train wreck, minus the bad parts (like where people get hurt in the other). I know he's going to say something stupid.

To paraphrase a certain weightlifting expert, anyone who says that properly done squats are bad for you has demonstrated conclusively that they are not entitled to an opinion about the matter. I'm likewise pretty sure Tiger didn't just wander into the Gold's Gym and step into a squat rack.

Well there is one thing I agree Shamble on. You might know your way around the weight room but squats can wreck a already damaged lower back.

heard today that badges were being sold to brokers for $500, much less than the going rate? No TW.....less casual golf fans who only watch when Tiger is playing.

Your material is getting a little...stale. Maybe you could work a few knock-knock jokes into your routine to freshen it up a bit?

Knock Knock
Who's there?
I HATE TIGER!!
Well then you must have enjoyed the Masters this year.
I didn't watch because there was no Tiger to piss and moan about.

Thought it was pretty much assumed he wouldn't be playing......

Report: Woods' recovery might rule out Pinehurst

 

Tiger Woods, who underwent surgery last month and withdrew from the Masters on April 1, seemingly will be in recuperation mode "past the U.S. Open," his friend and Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay III told CBS Sports Radio.

//sarcasm// Two consecutive majors that no one will watch or attend!??! How will golf survive? Just saw that Arnie listed his interest in TGC on the sales forum at WRX, since it's essentially valueless now.

Guess now we'll see who the real golf fans are. //sarcasm//

Chamblee: He's not really an announcer. He's more of a commentator, analyst. He gets paid for giving his opinion.  I like his takes -as well as Nobilo's.  Both do an outstanding job, imo, with the point, counterpoints. Chamblee has some very strong knowledge on the history of the game as well.  I'm surprised he didn't think of the Hogan accident before his comment about Tiger being the "oldest 38 yo in the history of the game".
