Would You Rather…?

Would you rather watch the regular coverage of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am where you see a mixture of "Celebrities" and Tour Pros (the normal coverage of this tournament)

...OR...

Watch the same tournament but only see the Pros eliminating the "Celebrities"?  Assuming you view the same number of shots, just all shots you see would be the Tour Pros.

To be honest I've never really watched the PB Pro-Am.  I did catch some of the LPGA Pro-Am earlier in Florida and it was interesting to see former pros (like John Smoltz)  in other fields compete.   Since there will be "no Bill Murray" this year, it may be less "entertaining" and more "real" golf.  Seriously, I like seeing it when there is a wildcard variable such as an amateur or celebrity who can hit okay play with the "big boys and girls".  It makes me appreciate the game more at all levels.  That being said - Option 1.

You know, immediately after I posted my previous post I started thinking I may have gotten it wrong, primarily because of the O-Value. I'll revisit that in a bit, though… Not that much lower.

I’ve done both in a day....but they sold nachos at the Putt-Putt so that helped.

Definitely hole out from the fairway twice a year for the rest of my life. An eagle on a par four is -2. A hole in one is -2. Two awesome shots/year would be something to look forward to forever.😃

For one time a year, I kind of like seeing the celebrities, especially on Saturday, when most of them are at Pebble.  I'm much less interested in seeing the business-people, although I understand that's probably a revenue source at some point.  Without celebrities, this is a "standard" PGA Tour event with some pretty views, nothing particularly special.  Similarly, I'm not a huge fan of the drunken masses of golf fans in Phoenix, but when its just once a year its OK.

I'm pretty good with how it is right now. I don't mind seeing some of the celebrities and it's something a bit different from what you get in a typical week.

Would You Rather # 36.

Let's pretend you can't watch the PGA tour for what ever reason.

Would you rather watch a LPGA Event?

or 

Would you rather watch a European Tour Event?

or 

Would you rather watch a Korn Ferry Tour Event?

Oh no, now cable is taking away our PGA events!  I'd watch the Corn Fairy Tour.  It's a preview of the PGA Tour, which for some reason I'll never get to watch anymore.

I enjoy the European Tour events that are played in Europe or the British Isles (is that reference still appropriate?).  They are often played on less manicured courses than the PGA Tour events; courses more similar to what I play.  So, I would rather watch the Euro Tour.

It’s pretty close between the LPGA and European Tours for me, but I’d probably go with LPGA. I may not watch a lot of live coverage, but I really enjoy watching the ladies play, and their short games are awesome.

I'll watch the LPGA over the other two because there is recognizable names.

It depends on what the event is, who is in the field, and which course it is. For instance, if it is like the BMW or other flagship event of the Euro Tour, I'm watching that. But I also like watching the LPGA at times, too, because the top ladies are similar to me in terms of ball speed but play lightyears better of course! Watching the top ladies on the Tour is very inspiring for my own game.

It would be close between LPGA and Euro Tour but I would lean for LPGA as I can relate to their distances much better and the tournaments generally play live at times I can watch.

Don't like Korn Ferry Tour at all - they all seem to be birdie fest type of tournaments that I hate.

I would rather watch the old farts, but since that isn't an option...

Did you get grounded @ChetlovesMer?

I didn't put the Champions Tour on the question for two reasons. One, I thought everyone would pick that. Two, the rules of the thread say "2, maybe 3" options.

Easy  - the LPGA.  I think its more that their distances are closer to what I hit and so its more relatable.

For me it would be the LPGA. I'm more familiar with some of the players on it, so it is somewhat more compelling for me than either of the other tours.

What good are rules if you don't bend them every now that then. 😈

Well, a respected and well liked member like yourself could probably get away with such a thing. Where as I'm hanging on by a very thin thread. I'm sure I would be battered, beaten and banished. 😬

Personally, I'd watch any of the above. 
However, if I'm going to choose one, I'm picking the LPGA. 
It's my second favorite to watch, next after the PGA of course.

I'm as bad as anyone at hijacking threads or rambling on about unrelated things. It's all part of my OCADD.

Now what were talking about again?

There may be times I choose otherwise but in general I would rather watch LPGA followed by European followed by Korn Ferry.   Part of it is that many Euro players are in the PGA events already so some of the "Names' are not always in the field at the Euro events but a good field could move them up the list.  My wife likes to watch LPGA so that makes is an easy choice over Korn Ferry.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.5 My typical ball flight is: big fade / slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice   Hey, I have a "my swing" threat on tst right after I started but it's now too old to update so I created a new one. Really interested in what you guys think. I'm working alot on my swing therefore I'm happy for every single tip especially if it straightens my ball flight. Thanks! Videos:     
    • How about The Reserve at Spanos Park?  Just north of Stockton right on I-5, that might work for timing?  In Sacramento, I also see Bing Maloney and Teal Bend both close to I-5. I wouldn't recommend making a detour towards Fresno - really no reason to lengthen a trip to get through there unless you planned on going to Yosemite or Kings Canyon / Sequoia as well.
    • What aspect of putting are you failing at?  For example, I can consistently do the ruler drill to over 80% accuracy (I often get 20+ to go straight out of 25).  Yet I'm a terrible putter, so lately I've been doing a "coin drill" at 4' and 6' (sometimes one or the other, sometimes one then the other).  I put 12 coins in a circle, approx equally spaced, around a hole, and try to make a putt from each coin.  I pick up the coin when I make one from there, and count total putts.  This gives a little bit for line and reading short putts.  I really should institute a penalty for myself when I leave one short from that distance. ESC also had a great drill from 12' or so:  pick a hole 12' or so from you (doesn't have to be exact), putt one ball to it.  Make it, give yourself two points.  Two-putt, and the first went past the hole?  No change.  Two-putt, first didn't get to the hole?  Lose a point.  Three-putt (or worse), lose 3.  See if you can get to 10 points. I guess I'm asking:  is it read, speed, or bead that you're struggling with?
    • Day 60.  Today was a good day for Shindig's game.   I was able to get to a course and spend some time on the putting green, including doing a 6' coin drill, completing it in 26 putts.   That's better than my target goal of keeping that under 30.  Of course, fewer is always better.  I also, later in the day, hit 30 chips with my 56 and 30 with my gap (U) iron, quarter shots all, indoors, real balls, off a mat, into a net, and managed a dozen slow, careful full 6-iron shots too.   If it seems that I'm prioritizing short game lately, you're right.  I have two tournaments in the next seven days, so I'm trying to do what I can in the short term to bring my score down by focusing on these.  Plus, let's face it, my short game is abominable anyway, so this isn't a bad thing long term either (although I do subscribe to 2/3 on long game, in general, of course).
    • Day 492: Something has not been feeling in sync lately, so decided to not do any "full" full swings today. Did takeaway drills in the mirror for 15 minutes, observing DTL and FO views to make sure I am getting to an okay spot at shaft parallel. Then did the same drill outside, and stopped at shaft parallel, and then when a bit further and kind of bunted the ball into the net. Did this for about 30 minutes with a PW, 7-iron, and hybrid.
