Redundancy, Stating the Obvious, and Paul Azinger

HI, Just another reminder to GOLF commentators that it is not necessary to fill every moment of air time with anything that comes to mind or is on a list in front of them. Sometimes it's just nice to feel the flow of the game without hearing about how so-and-so's son stubbed his or her toe on the way home from school.

Second, does every sentence have to remind us of what sport we're watching by having the word GOLF in it? I've taken to watching more often that not with the sound off ( except when Bryson Dechambeau makes his swing with his GOLF club at the GOLF ball on the GOLF tee on the GOLF course.) I'm missing some of the dynamic quality but most of the time it's worth it.

Lastly, I know that people can still qualify for oral commentary without having a particularly nice voice. Paul Azinger should be an exception! That drawling nasal whiny good-ole-boy twang is simply irritating. Johnny Miller sometimes sounded like he knew everything about the game, which could be a bit annoying, but he could get away with it because he DID know almost everything about the game.

And he had a voice that didn't make you cringe.

Sincerely, from Canada,
Noel Alden.

We have a couple of other topics on The Zinger. We may merge this one into one of them. But I think you will find a consensus that most of us find him irritating. He’s a Master of the Obvious and King of the tired cliche.

    • Welcome to TST.   We're glad you've joined.   
    • As @iacas wrote above, there's nothing disingenuous about it. I am quite sincere in my skepticism. FlightScope, a company founded to measure projectiles for defense (and continues to operate in that capacity), is a world leader in ballistic tracking. Their devices require a minimum of 15' of space (7' behind the ball at address and 8' of flight). And even with Titleist RCT balls, it still guesses the spin rate on some shots. The Mevo is just a radar device and is $500. The SwingLogic SLX Hybrid X3 Pro is a radar device, GPS, Bluetooth speaker, power bank, and waterproof, for the same price (MSRP). And it requires only 3' of space (you need more than 3' of space to swing a golf club, BTW)? I have to believe sacrifices are made somewhere. Actually, this thing is supposed to provide full shot analysis, right? Like the Mevo+ with Pro Package, but at a fraction of the price? Yea, I'm skeptical. I watched the review video on their site reviewing the SLX MicroSim, BTW. I don't consider that comparison to TrackMan "accurate." Is it in the ballpark? Sure. But is it accurate? Not really. Not by my standards, anyway. Some of us care about that.
    • Yeah, a brain fart. I would be killing it on the Hooters tour if I had a better........mental game. 😜
    • Day 165 (23 May 22) - still nursing the left foot, so I worked on transition from backswing to downswing using the 3w.  Followed with hitting hard foam balls (about 15 total) from my yard to my neighbor’s and back.  
    • Day 204, May 23, 2022 35-45 minutes working on the feels: Shift Hinge in a way that my arms pull across (which doesn't happen, that's the feel) Right wrist stays flat Throw face open/behind me as I shift. Went pretty well.
