One thing it did, was break up the monotony of the show...
Nothing like a couple old blow-hards arguing about another golfer lol. I'm amazed that the GC still exists at all.
I agree, but I tend to agree with Brandel's argument tonight. Was quite entertaining to watch them argue.
Also, my Bubba hatred has increased.
Agree. I don't mind Brandel. People don't like him because he's hard on Tiger, but that's kinda why I do like him. Too many guys kiss up to Tiger and he's not afraid to be critical. And I thought he was pretty spot on tonight.
That was weird.
Brandel starts by essentially saying that Tiger is trying to live and die with Trackman, and it's screwing with his swing.
Begay says, "No, Tiger is injured. It's not his swing, it's his back."
Brandel and Nobilo go at it ... shaft lean, club head speed, yada, yada, yada ... I bet everything on this set... yada ... and the argument seems senseless and unprofessional
Rich uncomfortably tries to end it ... cue uneasy laughter...
Brandel's argument didn't make much sense to me. Trackman is a sophisticated piece of machinery; it would be so easily fooled by whatever Brandel said Tiger was doing. Also, "leaning back" is not what Tiger or any other tour pro is doing. Their spines are tilting to the right but its not faked secondary axis tilt. And it wont hurt your back.
As for the Bubba thing, I really can't stand his attitude. I don't get it. He's better than what he's been acting lately.
