This is my opinion as well.  I don't mind him - heck, I don't mind any of them because I'm not watching to listen to them - but he can babble on a bit too much sometimes.  It's especially goofy when he gets to throw it to commercial and they show a dog on a beach or a guy hang-gliding and he comments on that.

I like McCord. He's been a fixture in golf for as long as I've known what it was.

He's great I love him

Yes Nick Faldo with his after-the-fact calls and Johnny Miller with his the-problem-with-so and so can raise dissent but the totally incoherent, impertinent babble of McCord is like suddenly having a children's program piped into the golf match. Please stop him.

Feherty - is that you?

Didn't he have a stint on the senior tour? What happened to that?

Totally agree. Talks way too much. Thank goodness we don't have to listen to his nonsense at the Masters.

He did pretty well pre 2006. So he was playing and announcing then? I didn't even notice. I wonder how he managed that.

Agreed. McCord doesn't take himself or the game too seriously. Golf is supposed to be fun, right?

He's OK, but gets on my nerves sometimes.  I think the problem I have with him is that he tries too hard sometimes to make EVERY comment funny.  I have no problem with a few humorous comments now and then.  It's just that by seemingly making every comment a comedy jewel, he misses more often than he hits.  Not every comment needs to make us chuckle.

Give me guys like Peter Kostis and Vern Lundquist all the time. McCord is a jackass.

I think this nails it.

LOL.  I read the quote above when it was posted a few hours ago, but I only read it on the "new posts" teaser page.  I gave the author name a cursory glance, and because I saw a few letters followed by a two digit number ending in 2, so I assumed it to be you.  Then just now, I read this post on the same page and was like "Whoa!!  What did McCord do to Phan in the last hour to make him change his tune so harshly like that!"  :-P

 

I should pay more attention. :doh:

 

P.S.  I like Peter Kostis pretty well too.  Can't help but chuckle, though, every time he's required to say "Kodak Swing Vision Canon BizHub Nikon Copier Fax Camera Spaceship SLo-Mo Instant Replay Vision View Thingy Sponsored by Chevy" ... or something to that effect. :beer:

Gary has almost become a parody of himself it seems, but I cannot not like him. Feherty tries too hard to be funny, but I think McCord is just out there. I admit it becomes unbearable at times, but I'm not going to throw him under the bus. :no:

post #32 of 35
I like all the announcers, read between the lines when McCord or Feherty speak. the both have more knowledge then miller or Faldo 😉
post #33 of 35

I don't care for McCord either...he not only tries to be funny he tries to be hip...unfortunately he is about as 'hip' as disco

post #34 of 35

Gary's OK, but I prefer Holly Sonders. Probably just me.

I've very nearly perfected a way to override the audio portion of the Masters tournament broadcast next year, thereby silencing Jim Nantz, and then having McCord do ALL the commentary from a secret remote location. Buwahahahaha!
