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.

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.😃

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

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.

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.
