A very photogenic couple.

There's a picture of the two of them from last year's Open that is absolutely adorable.  I'm not sure if it's appropriate or not to link, so unless I'm told I should, I'll refrain.

They might be my favorite celebrity couple right now.

He’s got a year to get the other 3 majors.

...and 10 before age 30.

Then we’ll talk.

Classic TV with some interesting numbers on shots televised. Granted, tracking only started in 2014. I guess with The Masters on YouTube, one could record these numbers for a much longer time period but The Masters I'm guessing is an anomaly.

Quote

This resulted in an average of 1.69 strokes per minute which is by far the highest I have ever recorded for any golf major since starting this tracking in 2014. The previous high was 1.41 for the 2017 Masters. For comparison, the 2019 PGA had only 1.14 shots per minute.

Anthony Kim didn't grip up, he gripped down!  

I miss him.

Those two are a great couple, no doubt, but have they ever produced a picture like this?

Oh, and look, he's got a noticeable belt buckle, to tie it in with your other comment. :-)

I'm rreally bugged by how much better ESPN is at golf vs CBS.

CBS does not do the game any favour without creating a good tv product.

If only ESPN had an Amanda Balionis...

Why?  Because he is Asian American like Kim?

Ratings for CBS are good, but not as good as 2018 when Woods was in contention. ESPN fared better, relative to TNT.

According to Showbuzzdaily, the final round on CBS drew a 3.27 average Nielsen rating, and peaked at 6.873 million during the back nine. That’s up from last year’s first-ever May playing but down significantly from the most recent August playing in 2018 when Brooks Koepka dueled with Tiger Woods and Adam Scott, among others.

Quote

Sunday’s final round coverage, which aired from noon until 3 p.m. ET,  averaged 1,965,000 viewers, up 60 percent over TNT’s final-round  telecast from 2019 and the most-viewed final round on cable since 2010.  Sunday’s telecast peaked at 2.4 million viewers and was above 2 million  from 1:15 – 3 p.m.

Across all four rounds, ESPN averaged 1,659,000 viewers and 399,000  viewers in the ages 18-49 demographic, up 35 percent and 54 percent,  respectively, from TNT’s coverage last year. In addition to being the  most-viewed PGA Championship on cable since 2010, ESPN’s average of ages  18-49 viewers was up 40 percent over the past five years.
