So far, I hate that there are commercials after EVERY shot. I like that I'm watching4 dudes  in shorts and carrying their own bags, who are very good golfers. They all look pretty rusty though.

Pins look pretty tough, but yeah I expected some better birdie chances on 3.

I imagine there’s a lot of companies that wanted to be apart of this. So id expect a lot of commercials, unfortunately. All going towards a good cause.

I don't think they're setting the course up difficult at all. They WANT to see birdies. The guys just aren't playing very well… yet?

Might be the only thing Wolff wins today, though.

This beats watching reruns or binging Netfix.  I don't like watching reruns of any sports so something / anything is great.

Barely.

We just saw a re-run of the Not-So-Funny Bill Murray Comedy Show.

I’m watching this.  Had high hopes for this. Was excited for it.  This thing is an unmitigated disaster.  

Put the players in golf carts to speed up pace of play.  They all have microphones but you can’t hear them.  The audio is terrible.  The players are unengaging and not funny.

Pity.  I was hoping for so much more.

My wife is lobbying for them to wear shorts all the time. She says that they have nice legs. Should I be jealous? 🤣

She doesn’t like Rickie’s mustache. I have better facial hair at least.

I’m watching this and Seminole looks like a driving range to me. Huge fairways, yeah there are some insane carries from their tees but I never played on such an open course. Got bored now as the down time between shots was too much. They should’ve used carts.

Isn't the LPGA a totally different organization that the PGA? I would be for the LPGA doing their own event like this.

They'd be done in 90 minutes. That wouldn't really work, either.

Than the PGA or the PGA Tour? Either way, yes. But nobody would watch that one, you know that.

They're professional golfers, not comedians.

And IMO there have been plenty of little jabs so far. Rory telling Wolff how many FedEx cups he's won, Wolff talking about the waste bunker thing with DJ, DJ telling Wolff that his right edge putt started left center, etc.

What exactly did you expect?

They could still TALK to each other, talk to Steve Sands… something.

Rory gives great interviews, for example. Very interesting guy. Nobody's asking them to be comedians.

I take it you're not familiar with Donald Ross courses?


It was interesting for an hour and now I'm kind of over it.

Then why put microphones on them?
I don’t expect them to be Seinfeld but this is a made for TV event.  They should know there aren’t any fans In The gallery, no other players-  it’s just them.  Liven it up a bit.

Watching someone use a ball washer is more engaging than this crap.

What’s wrong with that?  With commercials it’s a 2 hour event.  I’ve turned this off.  It’s 2 minutes of golf and 15 minutes of commercials.  Major fail.  Hopefully the Tiger Phil thing is better.  This is garbage.

Really like having players mic-ed up and have enjoyed what I have been allowed to hear.

Too many announcers talking over the players. Excessive commercials and interruptions: so many poor features (history of club pros, walker cup footage, skype and phone interviews). Way overproduced!

Of all things, I just don't know why they decided to do this live. You could have televised a match each weekend for the last two months like the Wide World of Golf. Film it Friday, keep results quiet, EDIT the best content and air it Saturday. Reality shows do this routinely.

Amazing course, the best of Florida but the broadcast is missing a bit of the course architecture.
