I thought the networks have been using drone operated cameras for awhile now? I guess for pretaped segments and not live?

Quote

This week at the Players, every shot will be live-streamed on NBC Sports Gold to PGA Tour Live subscribers. That’s more than 32,000 shots over the course of the tournament, captured by more than 120 cameras positioned throughout the course. Making every shot available was first achieved by CBS Sports at the 2019 Masters, and it could be the future of golf coverage on TV.

“Our vision is to bring every shot and every PGA Tour tournament to our fans, and this is the first step in making that a reality,” Monahan said.

This week’s broadcast also will feature the first use of a drone-operated camera.

Pretty lush, huh?

Unfortunately for Bob Tway, his 12 on 17 is the highest score for that cursed  island green hole.

The short and the long version of Russell Knox's nightmare on 17.

I’m watching “Live From THE PLAYERS” and Brandel says “he [Brooks] was wider off of the golf ball last year, nowhere near as wide this year.”

  • Am I missing something, his arms looks about the same width.
  • the camera isn’t exactly the same, so measuring the distance between his lead hand and hip won’t work....looks close tho.

I’m not trying to be some picky jerk here. I actually want to make sure that I’m not missing something. Especially with wording like “nowhere near as wide this year”

I picked Fowler at -13 to win for the Snell give-a-way. I don't think that it's a good or great pick (or even reasonable), but it is what I want to happen.

Makes you wonder if that Masters mentally crushed Molinari. He hasn’t finished in the top-10 since and appears on his way to missing his 4th cut in 5 starts. He’s a mess right now.

I think people attribute far too much to the mental game, as usual.

He got hot, then cooled off. Brooks too. Jordan too. The list goes on.

Aw jeez, I think I jinxed Russell Knox (see above post on 17 hole). Sorry, dude.

"For a few weeks it did linger, like any tournament would,'' said Molinari, who was ranked seventh in the world after winning at Bay Hill a year ago but has since dropped to 26th. "But especially because it was a major and because it was Augusta. I don't think it lingered for more than a few weeks.

 

He also withdrew from the API with a back injury, so obviously that wasn't helping his game.

This course is great at creating really weird/uninteresting leaderboards.

I get my tickets through Birdies for the Brave, so no problem there. I am disappointed, but I will just go to a Marlins or Yankees game, oh wait, they canceled Spring Training.

Looks like it's being cancelled all together?

It is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of THE PLAYERS Championship.

 Not just without crowds, but not here at all.
