Nah, I understand he got less airtime now at day 2. But the amount of airtime for Woods is ridiculous.

Dear Colin Montgomerie:

Dubuisson his caddy looks like he's 12 years old.

Hope to see Fowler, Westwood, Furyk and/or Day match McIlroy's score by end of day. Rain is coming down though.

Peter Alliss is moaning about it actually on Sky and basically apologising that we have to take American coverage and that means everything Tiger (even though he's of no consequence to this championship now)

Yeah, fair enough. But at least he's an old guy. What about Stadler? And actually, far too many of the younger contingent are in appalling shape.

That is a really sad indictment on the American golf fan if that's true

 

The answer really is to scrap the USPGA as a major and down grade it to a Pro-Am if all its been reduced to is a celebrity round 

 

I'd be interested to know how many American golf fans really enjoy watching this? Or more to the point, who on earth the PGA thinks this is good television?

I'd rather watch a Joost featured group than this meaningless nonsense.

My fault, force of habit. But still the lament is the same. A Tiger fetish is starting to ruin the coverage. In fact he's appealing to Tiger to pick the ball up so the American networks can't cover him (although they'd probably stick a helicopter and cover hsi drive away from the course)

NO! Joost!..Jim Furyk plays so well but on par fives he commonly takes 5 or 6..
post #752 of 1750

At least Tiger won't make the cut, so he doesn't get airtime the rest of the weekend.

No big number here, Lee! Looks like double bogey on 13

Seriously guys, I get it that Tiger isn't in this tournament.  But he's the greatest player of all time.  He's the reigning POY.  He's in the middle of a spectacular health collapse that could spell the end of his career.  At the very least, the story of the circumstances surrounding his injury last week, and the withdrawal, and the completely unexpected appearance this week, is news.  If you don't believe me, check how many comments the Tiger injury thread gained in the last five days.

Really?  A celebrity round?  I think Tom Watson said it pretty well earlier today:  "He is Tiger Woods."  Does he have more majors than the rest of the field combined?  (Obviously not, especially with Watson in the field, but you get the point.)

Agreed.  Also, it's Friday.  This seems to happen every week, or at least every major.  People complaining all day Friday about how they are not showing the leaders.

 

We've got all weekend to watch the leaders.  Tiger won't be around to get in the way either.  Have patience.

It's rare to see coverage of Lee Westwood without mention of his great ball- striking. I know he's excellent, but the last two holes have been horrendous.

How did he earn his reputation as a great ball striker? In 2011, he was T4 in that stat, but was outside top 50 in 2013, outside top 100 in 2014. Is there another stat where he stil earns this vaunted reputation?

By the way, I'm a big fan of his! I don't want a negative vibe from my Q. I'm just curious because they always say "Lee Westwood, wonderful ball striker"
