Sorry bro, it's like Aimpoint, I could explain it to you but then I'd have to kill you.:-X

 

There are probably easier ways, but what I do is copy/paste the quote as many times as I want to break it up and then write my comments between each box. Once I'm done I go back and edit each box to just the parts I'm commenting on. It's not always necessary as sometimes the editor behaves but when it gets all squirrelly I find this is a good work around.

The old graphic never told you what happened with the previous shot(s) either.

 


 

 

Just to be an a-hole I'm editing this post just to point out that @barney ****ed up his formatting in his post! 

 

BAN HIM!!!!!!!

 

:w00t:

 

 

 

No graphic can tell you that, that is why they need Jim Nantz and Faldo. :-)

I just read that ESPN / CBS are using this in the corner during the Masters:

I wouldn't be surprised to see NBC gradually transition into the new graphics and slowly remove the "2nd Shot" line. 

 

When is their next coverage?  Doesn't CBS take over for a while?

All they have for the rest of the year is The Players, the US Open, and then the last 3 tournaments of the year.

And the Players usually has its own graphic package... 

 

The Golf Channel should still have the early rounds though.

Got to disagree.  Sometimes I'm looking at my phone to see the leaderboard or getting sidetracked.  It's nice to be able to see the screen and know what shot the player is on.

 

Also I feel like back in the early 2000's the graphic included the club that the player had selected for his shot.  Haven't seen that in a while or maybe I'm not watching enough golf.  What's up with that?

TJ, no one would blame you if you have'nt been watching enough golf on t.v. For several years now, the GC and the Networks have filled the telecasts with conjecture, prognostication and second guessing. Graphics are useful, especially when you have MUTE on for an entire broadcast while Jim "Funeral Director" Nantz is blathering on and on about some useless stat. Funny on Saturday when Faldo was aksed what would have happened if he had made the cut? To which Faldo replied; " You'd find a way to weasle your way through the telecast". Ha ha an appropriate response!

 

Personally, I think given the technology and High Def cameras, the golf should tell it's own story. Self serving yappers like Ian Baker Finch, "Rog" Maltbie, Foltz can't get enough of themselves talking right up to the moment of the shot.

 

I don't think anyone cares which way the putt breaks, let's all just watch like the player does to see if he/she guessed right. Duh! Oh the heady days of Chris Schenkel, Jay Randolph and other respectful announcers who revelled at a great shot, versus feeling all good about telling us before it happened.

 

Ok, I'm done. Ha Ha

For the thousandth time, the old format showed you what shot the player was on.  It said Par 4, second shot.  Same thing now, just a different way to show it. Cool that you like the new graphic, but they haven't provided you with any info you didn't have glancing up at the TV before.

FWIW, this graphic has no redundant information. So, it's not too bad.

You're wrong.

 

Look directly under the -1 and then look at the bottom right corner of the screen.

 

Boom!! :banana:

You're welcome.

 

Erik and others have made suggestions.

 

I don't mind the new graphic, and haven't given alternatives much thought. I was as impressed by the graphic as you were by my post...
