This Peacock crap is pissing me off. I had no idea they were going to cut away this afternoon. I checked my Roku and there is no app. I'm not giving in to then trying to suck you into yet another service. (I know I'm being stubborn). I assume this won't be an issue over the weekend?

A classless move by NBC to try to force people to use their streaming service.

Unbelieveable.  I’m also disappointed that the USGA allowed it.

I mean, how could you have any idea? It's the first post in the topic. 😛

Folks, stop being the old man shouting at clouds. I downloaded Peacock last night to my AppleTV. Sign-up was easy, and free. It also works on my iPad, iPhone, and laptop.

You've had weeks to get do this, and that's on top of hours of coverage on Golf Channel and NBC itself.

I loaded it in 5 minutes when it changed over.

Also, why is Fleetwood dressed like this?

I didn't really pay attention. No app for the Roku and there is not a lot I will miss looking at the schedule. I'd rather gripe and protest.

They tried to ease it up so they could get the whole field in and it didn’t work. One group didn’t finish their round.

Streaming is the future of tv. No surprise NBC did this. Tomorrow Peacock has the am coverage. Espn did the same with the PGA. That wasn’t free. You should be happy NBC is offering it free. 

 

I wish they would sign up with Firestick. Makes it easier for me. Oh well.

I wonder if tomorrow will be Phil’s last round in a US Open?

He’ll prolly win a us senior open that will get him an exemption. But I do think Phil’s career as a full/time player is nearly over as I do think a tv offer will come soon.

What does Peacock cost? Curiosity as I see it's also not available to us Roku users.

I downloaded the app to my iPad. Didn’t see anything to sign in or sign up for. Watched featured groups for a little while this afternoon. If there’s a premium or paid version, I’m not seeing it.

Well, I was not able to watch the USO live yesterday but today I will.  Problem I have is with Peacock.  Do I put the USO on my large monitor and work on the smaller one?  Well, I am working so I guess work should be on the main screen....BUT it's the USO.  Work is on the smaller screen.

Watching the coverage on Peacock on my I-phone.....Yippee. Come on Golf Channel. This is ridiculous. Yes, it was easy to load and it's free etc...but really? It's the US Open.

I don't understand the bitching here:

  • It's available for your TV. Or computer.
  • It's for two hours today, with 9:30 to 7pm coverage on the television.

I'm not singling you out in particular, even though I'm replying to you.

I can't get it on Roku tv. I need my computer for work. I get it. I'm watching anyway but just seems sorta like NBC dictating that you have to use the app. I already have Netflix, amazon prime tv, etc...I'm just burned out on all the streaming services. I actually keep hoping the one of the previously mentioned services just start buying everyone out so there will be one place. It is what it is.

Yeah not a fan of putting a major championship on an app, let alone one that is having its issues. Not having an AirPlay option on the app is a huge negative from me for someone who uses AirPlay religiously with my Apple TV. But it’s only two hours so I can deal with it.

    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.

    • I thought I saw that picture in a post office. Other than that, nothing controversial. I do celebrate the comments on how there is a place in golf for a wide variety of swings. That has made a comeback and this golf fan appreciates the diversity and individuality of the looks.
