Do networks mic some on Tour differently than others???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Is it just me or do networks cut the microphones for some golfers right after they strike the ball and not for others.  There are definite exceptions (Bubba has been caught more than once, although not recently) but it seems pretty obvious to me.  Phil gets the same treatment and he handles it quite well, but it makes it seem as though Tiger is the only guy on tour that swears.

 

And yes, I'm a huge Tiger fan...

Not sure. I think you may get to hear more of the leaders talking because they aren't cutting away to other shots as frequently like they would on Thursday, Friday.

It seems pretty obvious but I guess it's just me.  Not the first time and it certainly won't be the last.  :beer:

Could they be trying to cut down on the "Mashed Potato!" stuff. If that doesn't make it onto the air, then people will stop doing it.

Leaders hitting tee shots on #15 ------I picked up on where CBS was able to mute out a fan yelling -  it worked pretty well because you got the club hitting the ball and the crowd clapping afterwards -  I think the networks can do it on all broadcasts, really.   Of course losing your lifetime badge rights to The Masters is likely to have kept the yelling down to a minimum last weekend.
