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.

Benefit of the doubt until he uses the phrase "of the golf ball" or starts calling putts "efforts"

then it's open season

Good grief.  They must be deep into Matt Every’s stash over at CBS...     :doh:

Carrot Top and Gallagher we’re booked.

And now he's leaving CBS. Thank goodness, as he was bland as can be…

 

Yep, we kinda knew that going in.  But he proved it.  Talented golfer doesn't translate to talented on-air commentator.

As I said in another thread...a loaf of bread has more personality than DLIII.

Glad to hear he's back to competitive golf and a desire to spend more time with family.

    • What constitutes slow play for me is when I'm on a hot course and not playing so well, and the group in front will never be invited to play speed golf in the Olympics.  My mind begins to wander to a beach, a cold gin & tonic and my shady side patio.
    • I had a new one today. A group of 4 guys is teeing off before our group (we had only 3 today), but one of their members is late to the course so they take it slow, chit-chatting on the box and what not. Finally, the missing guy struts in, not walking any faster, driving his remote controlled push cart, and they get going: 3 and 4 balls per player. From the blue tees. I didn't think that all (or even most) of them had he skills to play those tees. It's going to be a long day, I said to the rest of my group. We had no idea, how long! We can see already a big gap ahead of them, and there must have been a gap in the tee sheet. So after waiting what seemed like half an eternity to hit our approches, we proceed, hit our chips and putts as needed, and only 3 of the guys ahead have yet teed off, and at least one is hitting mulligans... They had played the first hole in well over 20 minutes. We finish and walk past them towards the white tees where we will be hitting next. They totally ignore us, won't invite us through and that's when one of my partners says out loud (to be heard by them): "I don't have six hours for this, so let's go past them to the third tee."  We never hit from those white tees and instead walked around the slowpokes, under the tunnel below the freeway, back up on the other side and played the third hole, a par 5. We finished the par 500+ yards hole (3 shots + chips + putts as needed for 3 people), walked off to the 4th tee and they were STILL not on the third tee. Well, this seemed like the right decision, we congratulate ourselves. And the rest of the round proceeds normally and at a great pace: we have about 3 holes open in front, and on #11 catch up with the previous group, a foursome. No big deal, we can chip and putt on the previous green for a while as the slow group is now about 3 holes behind. We keep going like that until the end and by the time we walk off #18, the snails are making it to the tee of #14. That's a whole 5 holes behind, mind you, and that's with us having plenty of time to practice our short game as we move along. We were done in just over 3 hours and 20 minutes, so these guys were on pace for 5 to 5 1/2 hours with nobody in front of them, not playing in a tournament. This is an easy course, flat, open and I walked it once with nobody in front in under 2 hours. I just couldn't believe it. That slower than the definition of slow. Horrible.  
    • Day 59, July 23, 2021; Well maybe we’ll notice purple. Played 18 today, shot 75. I hit the ball very well. I could not buy a putt. Not a single putt outside 5 feet. Guess my read is off, need to practice that, probably where I was off.
    • A friend of ours, son, just came out of an induced coma. 9 weeks. He contracted Covid before he had a chance to get vaccinated. Bad timing for him. 49 years old , A third degree practicing black belt (Kyokashin 1)and one of the fittest men I know. He is sitting up and breathing on his own. Long term effects to him. Unknown. Long term effects of the covid vaccine. Unknown. I took my chances on a double Pfizer. I was trying to cut down on the possibility of a covid coma.  
    • I sip an Italian Sports Drink out of a metal container while playing.  No sips if I make a bogey.  One sip if I make a par.  2 sips for a birdie.  Had an eagle yesterday... 3 sips.  Heaven forbid I have a hole in one!
