+1 Moving Day indeed.
I just think the game thrives having a dominant player. And if it's Rory, it's Rory. At the very least I find him exciting to watch. He takes chances which I like. He goes for the gusto. That's why Phil is one of my favorites.To steal a quote from Tin Cup, "he goes for it."
As a spectator spectacle it just proves to me what I've always known, competition is the key to any sport. If it's competitive it becomes compelling, and the Tigeristas will either adapt or new followers will emerge.
It sounds listening to you lot though as if the PGA need to do some major work on the number of adverts that the broadcaster permits when they next sell the rights, and not to simply sell to the highest bidder. If you make any product unappealling to watch by continually disrupting the feed and killing the anticipation, you devalue it. Luckily we have legislation in place that governs the duration and frequency, even for commercial stations
Anyway, it looks like we might get a spectacle at last
You wonder where this game from Weisberger is coming from. Outside of a couple 2nd place finishes in small Euro Tour events, he's not exactly been lighting it up:
To show you how rare it is, the last player not named Tiger Woods to win a major as the #1 player in the world was Fred Couples in 1992.
