What a treat to watch the ABC replay of Greatest Rounds, from the 1974 US Open! This reminds me of "why" the GC was created in the first place. I felt the most remarkable aspect is the advancement in the modern day optics. The Pros today would cry about that length of rough because they could'nt just get up and whack it. Forrest "Fuzzy" Fezzler, poster boy for the Reverse "C"! Bert Yancey and the "Death Stare" at every hole. He must have had a heckler following him.
Although I don't hand them out on a regular basis, Kudos to the GC for actually showing something related to golf. The vomitous Big Break, another Tiger Woods Press Conference, the 2008 US Open were no where to be seen. Instead the viewer was treated to Henry Longhurst, Bill Fleming, Chris Schenkel and a young Jim McKay.
This may have been the first Tournament in a while I actually has the sound UP, not in Mute.
GC, show more Classics, so that todays golfer can get an appreciation for how difficult the game WAS, as opposed to 460 cc heads and balls that gooooo forever! It is good to gain perspective from time to time.
