Watching the pros play golf on television is very entertaining. Seeing how they get themselves out of trouble, and their club selection, can always be a learning experience. Asking yourself why he chose that 3 iron when putting off the green instead of a wedge or why he is laying up instead of going for the green in a certain situation. Ah, these little bits of information can easily be explained by the golf commentator or analyst. They are there not only to fill during commercial breaks, but to enlighten you on the finer points of the game. Every network has their own with a mixture of foreign as well as American voices. Who do you like to listen to the most? Who is more entertaining and who do you learn more about golf from?   Most of my friends enjoy Jim Nance and Dottie Pepper. My own choice would be Peter Alliss from the BBC. Does one have a "favorite" voice in golf they like to listen to or are they all the same.

Grrrrrr.

That's not his name. Pet peeve of mine.

Ha, that's funny. 
I do see the "Nance" thing all the time. Which is weird considering how many times you see his name written on the screen when you watch golf.

I think I’d get tired of anyone’s voice after what, at least 5 hours a day for 4 days in a row, let alone most of these guys who grate on me after 1 minute.

    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.
