Kostis, McCord, and Macatee Out at CBS, Nobilo, Love III, Wie, Immelman In


Recommended Posts

They say their telecast has been stale and boring lately, so they hire the most vanilla guy in the game of golf. DL3 will really spice things up! CBS used to be my favorite broadcast team with Nantz, Macatee, Kostis, Faherty, and McCord.

I think that's the whole point… When you are a grown man and you have a "thing" like McCord's mustache, or let's say a man with a really out there unique beard, or somebody who wears an English drivin

Let’s face it, here’s who we want:

Huh?  Really?      It’s entertainment.  Nothing more. In the grand scheme of things, no more “serious” than Saturday morning cartoons are to a 10 year old.

I'm not sure DL3 is going to be any less stale. I would like him to be another "Johnny Miller" type in the way of him actually calling out some players but I don't think he's going to be that type of commentator.  I assume he'll spend more time sitting in a tower on the 16th green giving us the yardage and the break of the putt. Faldo isn't bad but right now he's pretty much the only game in town.

A guy that has a thing like that is stale, lame, every single time. 

you're bein a debbie

Just seems to me anybody who actually likes McCord probably still wears a Members Only jacket.

whats a members only jacket?

I like faldo, kostis, mccord, feherty, nantz.  Theyre just voices I like.  at the end of the day it's all about the golf, as long as I'm not listening to miller in the booth.  

 

to those who are happy to see mccord and kostis out, who are the commentators you like?

Exactly! I want somebody who will be like one of the "two old guys in the balcony" from Sesame Street! Faldo did it, and Miller did it. CBS needs somebody like that, now that Faldo seems to have backed off!

Seriously, time to change it up. DL3? Not so sure.  Maybe have a high end teacher breaking down some of the swing analysis? When you look at what other sports are doing with ex-players adding to the broadcasts of their game, it's pretty good.  Golf could do a lot better.

Continuing an extensive announce team overhaul, CBS Sports announced the hiring of Frank Nobilo and Trevor Immelman to full-time roles Tuesday, while Michelle Wie joins as a Masters digital team me…

Nobilo is leaving Golf Channel, in case that's not clear.

Quote

Wie’s hiring comes after a successful first broadcasting stint during Golf Channel’s Solheim Cup coverage. The five-time LPGA Tour winner will be a digital contributor for now, though her hiring suggests the network may be in line to pick up LPGA Tour coverage under the next PGA Tour-negotiated contract for both tours.

Is she done playing? Looking more likely.

    • So you weren’t able to listen to Death Metal for 40 hours?
    • Lie can be affected by set up, but it is really impact position that is key. The shaft is actually bending down slightly at impact. So the head is slightly flattened with respect to the shaft. If you set up too close or too far from the ball, it can vary the head position at impact. One trick I use at set up is to let my right arm hang free. If I can then move it to the club without moving it in or away from my body, then my set up is in the right spot.
    • I live in close proximity to Browns fans, so Manziel is still one of those names that stirs things up.  But absolutely. If golf can give him a direction in life, that's fantastic. Maybe he only ever competes for a club championship at the local golf club, but if it gives him a reason to get out of bed in the morning that might be more important.  I know some people with issues. One commonality is that they don't have that something to be passionate about.
    • I actually think he's an okay guy. He has his demons and his issues just like anyone else. I don't think he's inherently a "bad person" in any way. I wish him all the best in his pursuit. My guess is he'll never make a PGA tour event, but good for him to have a goal and a dream that's worth pursuing. There are a million worse things he could be trying to do.
