Golf Channel cover started at 10, CBS at noon - but GC is not showing much golf, yet

I'd love to know what the green speed is today vs. next week.

Opening ceremony today and ceremonial first shots
(I think the whole thing took about the same amount of time as JB Holmes to play a shot)

Awful coverage with GC. They apparently think we’d rather watch the commentators talk than watch the women play. Dopes. It’s ironically maddening that they’re talking so much about this being so good for women’s golf yet they’re not letting us watch it. I don’t need to watch Rich Lerner slobber over Augusta. Run your ball washer all you want but we don’t need to watch it. Get the cameras on the golf FFS!!

Yep. Just took a break and came back..they were showing Chamblee talking again ...it’s amazing how stupid they are. They think this is promoting this event? How can these morons think we want to watch the booth talk about the tournament. I’m done with it. Looks like this attempt to promote women’s golf has fallen flat.

Official coverage doesn't start for 20min on NBC.  Golf Channel just does their pre-game look in and random stuff.  I'm sure NBC will BS for 30min before they actually show golf, but really, who's surprised by any of this?

I can’t watch golf (or any sport I guess besides hockey) without my DVR. There are so many commercials almost everything is unwatchable these days.

I wonder how many players @iacas has in this tournament. The ONLY thing I don’t like is that it is during a women’s major.

I think women’s majors need help. IMHO. I think Augusta should have taken one of the women’s majors and made it the masters. It would be great for LPGA. They would then have 3 majors same as the men.

But I get that Augusta has always tried to help and be good to the amateur game.

So only complaint: why is this during a Women’s Major?

I don’t think it would. But I won’t comment why I believe this. It has nothing to do with sexism.

Fair enough, but what do you think of the main point of my post- the ANWA taking place during a Women’s Major?

Just tuning in...looks like a two horse race at this point. Thought Campos would make it interesting but apparently not.

Yeah that’s a bit of a conundrum. I’m having more interest in the Amateur match but only because it’s Augusta. It seems a bit of an attempt to promote women’s golf in general but I’m sure the LPGA would like those extra viewers as well but they’d catch hell to complain about it so....

I like seeing some of the different camera angles, seeing some holes from a perspective I've not seen before.

But it's still so weird seeing the ladies play this course

    • This is pissing me off. Wake up!!!! 😡
    • Between the Ryder Cup and this, we really need to evaluate who can compete the foreign courses the best.  Just because a player is top 8, doesn’t mean that player should automatically be selected. John
    • This is hole 4 of the local short course. Par 71 but only 5000 yards from the whites (maybe 5300 from the blues which I should play far more but don't). Whites are at the front of the rear tees, right where I put the marker. Blues are at the back of that same box. This is a par 4. With an average drive total distance of 220-230 yards, it looks obvious and should be a birdie, par at worst. Take driver at the green. If I catch it good, I could be on. If I don't, I will be no more than 40 yards from the front of the green. The problem with this hole comes from the creek that runs through it, and the slope of the hole. From the tee, it it fairly flat until you get over the creek, then it starts sloping hard right to left somewhere around the 550ft mark on this overhead. Also, it is probably 20 ft uphill within the last 60 yards. The fairway narrows heavily at my normal driver distance. Anything in the left rough is going into the creek, and as you can see (even from a junk satellite image) the bunkers on the right pool water. Even if you avoid the bunkers right, the woods are thick enough that you will lose the ball if you go that far right. If you manage to go right, avoid the bunkers, and find your ball, the green will be sloping away from you and you will have a significant downhill lie as the cart path sits above the green by 5 feet. I think what I am supposed to do is hit a 5, or more likely, 6 iron to somewhere shy of the the upper bridge over the creek, hopefully middle to middle right fairway. From there, it is a 9 iron, PW, or 53 degree in depending on strike quality of the mid iron. Fairway there is decently wide, and no hard slope compared to green side. Almost certainly a par/bogey for me if I take this route, which I am fine with at my skill level. But...... I cannot bring myself to take anything other than driver on this hole. Out of the 20 or so times I played this course this year I have 1 birdie, 3 pars, 5 bogeys, and the rest doubles or worse (yes, a 7, 8 or even 9 on a 240 yard hole is well within my capabilities if I hit an errant drive right that causes a provisional (and an almost certainly lost ball off the tee). I honestly don't know what it will take for me to stop doing this. I have shot even par on the back nine of this course, but my best on the front is +5, which is the par 35 half.
    • DJ has yet to play 16 holes in a day.    International squad is making the shots they need to. We are looking timid.    If we don’t grab at least 2 points this session it could be done Friday for us.
