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

    • Save your money and get a good unit. Sounds like you’re serious. The problem is your budget. Unfortunately, better units simply won’t likely fall to within your budget at this point in time. The mevo+ looks promising but the stickers would be a deal breaker for me. My set up is a gc2, computer with FR1 (with all courses), country club elite mat, projector, and hitting screen. I’m sure I’ve left something out. The only problems I have with the gc2 is the fact that it over-rewards low spin shots (like driver) on the carry distance. Otherwise, it’s very accurate. Really the only data points I care about are ball speed and start line; I don’t curve the ball too much generally. If my ball speed and start line are where I want it, I’m pretty happy. Other potential issue I see for it moving forward: it does not have a LED flash like the quad so those have to be replaced after a while (long time but still). That said my foresight guy gets me what I need and has taken care of me. 
    • The Ping G410 Plus sits open at address. My suggestion is to take your grip and hold it straight in front of you with the club face is square, then address the ball. Your push should then become a draw. 
    • Erik already told you what you need to do from a technical standpoint.  I think you're trying too hard and you're getting emotional while you're playing. I can tell from your post. Emotions can help you focus in some sports, but in golf they will absolutely punish you. If you let your emotions get the better of you, they will reinforce the negative and ignore the positive while you are playing. And once that starts you might as well pack it in for the round. You and I have been playing about the same length of time. I'm a 90s golfer. I don't know if I'll ever break into the 80s consistently. It's a goal, but the world won't end if I don't. You've put more time and effort into this than I have. The biggest lesson I learned was to play the game one shot at a time. Forget the last shot that you hit. It's gone. It's not there anymore. You have an entirely new situation in front of you. Look it over, figure out how to best play it, pull the club, go through your pre-shot routine, relax, visualize the successful shot, trust yourself, and swing the club. "What happens if I hit a bad shot?" you say. Laugh if you have to. You're not playing for a $ millions. The shot is gone. You have a new shot. It's the only way to deal with it without getting negative thoughts. Play within your game. Don't try to do what your game doesn't allow you too do.  You also said "an easy 6i shot". Now I don't know if you meant to take an easy swing with the 6i or it was a simple 6i shot. English is vague. If you meant the latter, you assigned a value to the shot. It's just a 6i shot. You either make it or you don't. Saying it's 'easy' and missing it means failure. Having it just be a shot and missing the green means you just missed the green. You have to chip or pitch on. No value to the shot. A former tour pro gave me this advice. And I'll mention, this is one of the most difficult things to do, but it can keep your head clear of negative thoughts through a round. That's all I have to say about this. YMMV.
    • 101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.  
    • Hi Warren,  I have not started working on adding drywall for my garage. Thank you for the tips on adding insulation and soundproofing acoustic panels. I plan to take 1 week off and start doing drywall mid November. I am in Southern California so heating is not an issue. I can use a space heater if needed.  Right now I am leaning toward Skytrak because it seems like it is better for simulator golf games. I don't plan on taking the device to the range. I will checkout the Golf Simulator Forum.
