There’s some good ones in my opinion. I like Faldo, miss Johnny Miller.  Dottie Pepper needs to retire. Bones on the course is good.  Zinger is still learning.  Some of the Golf Channel guys are as dry as toast! Tom Abbott, yikes!  Judy Rankin?  Please retire!

Agree its pretty average at best, no clear dominating-take charge type broadcasters today. Appears everyone is overly conservative with their commentaries. Not saying I want all Brandel Chamblee's (at least hes not afraid to stir the pot so to speak) but it would be nice to see more authoritative voices in the booth.  No clear leading voice or network dominating in coverage commentaries IMO.

I rather enjoy some cheeky Faldo, but aside from him I don't see any standouts.

Hearing McCord’s commentary on Bryson’s Bo Derek hole would’ve been cringe worthy. 
 

This is for the ‘older’ members. They’ll get it.

She certainly was a 10. When I told my wife Bryson made a 10 on a par five she could not believe someone of that caliber could make a 10. I found it a little hard to believe. Makes me feel better about some of my bad holes over the years.

When I was about 25, and still learning the game, I declared on the 9th tee to my two buddies that I was GOING TO TURN IT AROUND RIGHT NOW.

I then made back to back 11's.

The standard of commentary is really appalling, generally. There’s no one that stands out. They all sound the same to me and expel vapid garbage.

Golf commentary is dead. CBS ... you may as well listen to paint dry.

Part of the problem now is that, since the commentators are not on site they're watching a delayed stream. At least it seems that they're farther behind the action timewise than I am. I often hear them oohing and ahhing well after the putt has just missed the hole instead of just as the putt rolls by.

    • The Footjoy rain pants are huge. Not a good fit in my opinion. 
    • The 80 I shot a few months ago has been knocked off my card, and my handicap currently sits at 16.3. However, my round from today (score post in a little bit) knocked the next-lowest round, 83, off as well, so it will probably skyrocket when I get my update tomorrow. Stay tuned.
    • Swing looks great.
    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
