I taped it and watched yesterday. It was fun that way. It was a better format than last weeks. I liked that they played in the rain too. I liked the trash talking and Peyton’s rolling commentary. He is funny. They should have kept the mic on him more in the cart.

Phil’s personality came out too, which was entertaining. He is a very confident FIGJAM. Brady showed he was human after all. I think they were muting his mic during the F-bombs. I’ve seen that stone face so many times when things are not going right. 

Tiger was quiet for the most part and I think the rain caused some breakdowns. Charles was Charles, always a character. The carts definitely sped things up. I enjoyed it.

Me???  I wasn't there!  Oh, Brady.  Yeah, I can totally relate.  IMHO, he was just having an off-day.  I know I have waaayy too many off-days on a golf course.  🤬

Well its officially the most watched golf event in cable history beating the 2010 Masters according to the GolfWRX newsletter.

If you are the PGA, you have to notice this right?

I believe I enjoyed this telecast as much or more than most PGA tournaments.  It was certainly entertaining, too bad the weather was not good. I particularly like the modified alternate shot format on the back 9.

If you are the PGA you also have to notice that golfers are starved to watch live golf on television right now.

Not only that, but there are probably a few football fans that tuned in just because of that. Heck, even basketball fans may have tuned in just because it's live sport. I don't think that the viewership of this event had anything to do with anything about the event itself, other than timing.

If you are the PGA, you just hit "forward" and send the email to the PGA Tour.

I was just following the lead of the guy before me.  I should know better.  I think PGA is sort of a "catch-all" for a lot of folks... even when they're referring to USGA events.

I know. I was mostly talking to the guy before you, too.

I recorded it too.  And watched it 45 minutes later while fast forwarding through all the commercials.  It was fun to not have to watch the commercials.  I do that with the evening news, as well.

Other than playing well, Tiger didn't bring much to the table.  He seemed very quiet.  Would have been nice if he were more talkative.  Phil tried.  And Manning added a lot.  I really liked Chuck's commentating.  Imagine if the two pros were Trevino and Fuzzy.  Or Chi Chi.  That's what I'm talking about.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.  By the way, Florida is having its wettest May on record.  Also, the Medalist is a much better course than the highly over-rated Seminole.

Yeah, no. But thank you. We can now rightly ship your takes on golf courses without even reading them.

Heard quite a bit of talk about this on sports talk radio right after. You don't have to mic up everybody, but I'd sure pick a few folks to mic up. Especially Justin Thomas!  He was very funny.
