I like the mini leaderboard

 

It’s a neat feature, and not intrusive to the viewing. I wish it would scroll to show the top 10 though.

Edit: It does scroll, nevermind

Edit 2: I thought I saw it scroll to show the second 5 players, but now I’m watching it and it’s not moving.

I still don't think it qualifies as a big change. Just something that's drastically overdue.

Partially translucent background helps.

Maybe I’m just oblivious, but it doesn’t seem too different to me. That Lillie leaderboard is ok, but no big deal.

That's the joke, y'know?

These "big" changes are really f***ing small. 😄

Has anyone noticed the new music?  Or is it elevator music and totally in the background.  And the rules official... meh.  I like the NFL guy better.  Golf guy has no edge.

So I get home after playing golf, turn on the coverage, and watch 10 minutes of Faldo, Baker-Finch, Nance, etc.... talk about Patrick Reed's drop from the day before. Thank god I had a beer in my hand. Then commercial. It took 15 minutes for me to see the leaderboard and close to 20 before I saw the first swing.

I enjoy watching golf but they are making it difficult to watch.   I don't see any real improvements to their "new" broadcasts.

I do crossword puzzles or read The Sand Trap while watching golf. Helps ease the pain.

    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.   
    • I would like to but I use it to keep in contact with former players and family. 
    • I used to have problems with it, but no longer. I remember I had a cortisone shot at one point, but the real key is your shoes. Make sure you aren't wearing shoes that are too tight or short in the toe box area. Any of your shoes, not just golf shoes. Warning: I am not a medical professional. The above is my opinion based on personal experience.
    • I have a couple of the original "SuperStick" adjustable clubs that you lock into the different positions with a thumbscrew. Fun to use on a shorter length course. The "long" settings (Driver, 3, 4 irons etc) launch lower and not as far, and the shorter settings (8, 9, pw) go a lot higher and farther than a typical set. A lot like the characteristics of a "one length" set of irons. You can certainly play golf with a "SuperStick" once you get used to it, but you won't be using it all that often.
