I think she fell off the bike the first time around.

Can’t say I’m looking forward to her babble. Maybe she’ll bring a new game....

Anyone will be an improvement over DLIII.

That being said, I thought they got rid of ppl and did not want to be “stale”

This hire will be just more of the same from the beloved CBS Golf broadcast.

I'd pay if they kept the sound from the action and had say the No Laying Up guys commentate.

Those guys are fun and have opinions. There is nothing fun about the current broadcast and no one on the broadcast team seems to have a negative opinion of anything, ever! BORING 

NFL announcers criticize bad QB play, bad attitude, etc.

I know Johnny Miller was over the top with everyone choking, etc. But at least his broadcast could be fun (I know he was NBC, but he’s just an example)

First! Ha ha. But seriously, I never heard him in the booth or even watched any of his interviews, so dunno what his personality is like.

Davis Love III is heading to the broadcast booth. The World Golf Hall of Famer and 21-time PGA Tour champion is joining CBS as an analyst for its coverage of the PGA Tour, the Masters and PGA Champ…

 

He doesn't have a personality.

From the UK perspective, where we sometimes get your commentators, but not always - your lot are all terrible. Just schmaltz and cliche and boredom. The only guy who was ever any good was Johnny Miller. He dared to have an opinion, and to be critical of the "stars". And he wasn't boring.

Hey, what about Gary McCord?  He had a personality... and a mustache.

His time with that squirrel during the Ryder Cup was about as interesting as he can get. But I think the poor squirrel thought the whole time he was on a tree.

Why exactly did they dump McCord?  He didn't retire right?  I didn't mind him... I miss Feherty though.

It wasn’t obvious to you? Lol. They thought he had become stale and wanted some fresher replacement. 
IMO golf has had a stuffy reputation so anyone with the slightest touch of character seems great. People who really aren’t funny like Jacobsen and McCord kinda get a pass. McCord’s pass expired.

I've always liked Kelly Tilghman. Does anyone know what her role will be?

I think we all knew DLIII wasn't going to work. Frankly, I wish someone would put Colin Montgomerie in the booth. I know many people don't like him, but he knows a lot about the game. Also, I enjoyed Frank Nobilo's comments on today's telecast.

Good call on Monte.

All my opinion:

The Monte hatred has long passed. Maybe some older guys still hold on to 90s Ryder Cup memories.

Monte has even said that US fans have warmed up to him now that he’s on Champions Tour.

I think he would be a good hire...only issue I see is no majors. It’s hard to be critical of players with majors, when you have none.

It's his face. If I don't have to see him, I'd prolly be fine with him commentating

    • Exactly! That loft number is all you need. The fact that one OEM calls it an Approach Wedge and another calls it a Gap Wedge is irrelevant. For me, I need a 50 degree wedge; then I know what to do with it. OEM’s are in business to sell golf clubs, period. If you think they have some altruistic motives as well, you have probably drunk the koolaid.
    • Here is the overseed schedule if you're looking for more courses... https://snga.org/2021-overseed-schedule/  
    • What would happen to the bad putter?  He makes a few more but maybe his bad misses that get knocked off line even further cause him to 3 putt a percentage of them?  I know probably not from 5 feet, but if you apply the logic to all putts and not just 5 footers?
    • Make sure you hit up the souvenir tent. I hear it is huge and only 10% of the items can be bought outside of event. 
    • Focused here on making clubhead go more up and right post impact, it's been a bit low and left lately as evidenced by videos above. Steep from the top, grrrr. Keys #4 and #5 are hard. There's a swing alignment stick in the sky, lol.
