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.

If you have an AppleTV, you don't need to AirPlay to it.

But here, let me get a new avatar for you:

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

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 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.

It's not available on Roku. NBC and Roku haven't come to an agreement for a contract.

Also, unrelated and just IMHO, but everything Apple sucks sweaty bunghole.

I've had no issues yet watching on my phone using the Peacock (free signup) and the Open iOS apps. My main issue with the official US Open app is that these stupid trivia questions and polls pop onto the screen periodically. I'm trying to watch the US Open, not play a f***ing game show.

I don't have The Golf Channel, but I am recording all the NBC OTA broadcast coverage to watch at my leisure.

A bookie accepted 45K on 75 to 1 odds Mickelson will win, around a 3.3 million payout.

A little off topic, but Peacock is probably the only service I signed up for that didn't ask for my credit card number and is free. Plus the ads aren't overwhelming. Like 1 minute of ads for 45 minutes of scripted content.

Yes, it's not on Roku. The same thing happened with HBO Max though. Roku seems to have issues negotiating with some of the big players, and I've seen some throw up their hands and just buy an Apple TV because they really wanted HBO Max.

The Roku issue will be with us for this tournament but I am certain they will come to an agreement down the road so for now I will just stream to my PC.  Also, if you have an LG Smart TV that will also work...unfortunately my large screen TV is Samsung.  These are just "Growing Pains" with the transition to newer technology.

Streaming golf has always had its issues though, the No Laying Up guys have talked about this, I forget which episode.

Worse case is you just hook up laptop to TV, which is a minor inconvenience, but pretty much guaranteed to work.

I didn't get a chance to watch much of the action yesterday, so dunno if this was a topic, but some of posts in my social feed - people pissed at the USGA setup.

The fact that EAL shot 92 in his attempt to break 90 is very telling for how the course WAS set up. I hope that the WF team brings back the brutality that is associated with US Opens.

I'm surprised that "the big golfer" is holding it together as well as he is given recent results and the rough. Cool to see.

Phil seems like a phony to me. I used to be neutral on him, but now with his social media persona and the ridiculous sunglasses, can't stand him.

 

That's what makes him so likable.....his FAKE thumbs up and LUV for himself is EPIC....why do you think he's called FIGJAM.

If I wanted to cheer for a pro with the personality of a door mat....then I'd root for Jimmy Walker....nuff said.🤣

    • Day 54: Set up a chipping/pitching area in my basement because we are having a F-ing Nor’Easter! Worked off a mat and off my putting mat which is a tighter lie.   I also think I’ve solved the temperature issue with club assembly. My basement is 55F,  so I set up a lamp to get the temp around 80 where the club heads are. I used my BBQ thermometer to measure the temp. I am such an enginerd! I had to re-epoxy my Titleist heads because they were starting to get loose.
    • HRV points toward recovery more than sleep from what I have seen. My sleep is always high but my recovery may or may not be. 101, nice! I was talking to a friend of mine and his is always high. He showed me a screenshot from yesterday and it was 115.  I made it a point to look at my strain this morning when I woke up but before I got moving around much. It was 0.0 as well so I believe you’re correct on hitting the heart rate threshold. I have just never looked at it that quickly. 
    • If you are 'old' you will surely be familiar with the pre 2019 definition of 'Lost Ball'. The new version says  Lost/1 – Ball May Not Be Declared Lost A player may not make a ball lost by a declaration. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it. For example, a player searches for his or her ball for two minutes, declares it lost and walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball in play, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time. Since the player may not declare his or her ball lost, the original ball remains in play.
    • I'm in the same boat as Dave. We golf together often, go to sporting events together and it's all about the grand children when it comes to sports and sporting activities. I did vote for "Other"
    • Plumbrook is short and none too difficult. But a fun course to play and go try to hit bombs all day. If you really play it to score (For me long irons or fairway woods off the tees for well placed pitch and chip in opportunities) it can be an easy course to score on. Greens are usually in good shape and roll true. I lived very close to Chandler Park until I got married in '91 at the age of 32. I used to play 9 in the morning on my way to work on those long days close to the summer solstice.
