The PGA Tour is fending off an onslaught of defections to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf and it might have found some new ways to stem the tide courtesy...

 

Since people are blasting the LIV Tour for their 54 hole Tournaments, 

I'm curious as to what people will think of the One Day Tournaments, Tiger and Rory want...

It is what it is

For me, there aren't really enough details on the "one day events" to form any thoughts yet.

I don't even know what these statements in the article mean:

  •  "a new venture that will have the world's top golfers competing against each other in a non-green grass, stadium environment"
  • "Early thinking suggests the showdowns - which will be technology-forward and staged with a live audience"

Is this some sort of skills competition or something? Doesn't sound at all like a golf tournament.

Not enough details at all, right.

I found a better article that explains stuff a bit better.....

the "one day" tournaments the first article was talking about would be a "indoor" set up, probably on a golf sim

As said, not really enough details. But I like golf the way it’s been for years. 18 holes, four day tournaments. I have zero interest in skills crap, indoor nonsense, hit the ball through the clown mouth, yada, yada. That’s just me. Hell the only part of ‘Big Break’ I really liked was the matches.

I really hope the tour doesn’t go for this money grab crap. The product will suffer. Will wait for more details.

In other news, you’re not 23 years old.

@iacas do you really feel that way? Not to assume but nothing to do with LiV?

Yes. Have you tried to watch televised golf lately? It’s horrible.

Nobody watches so they have to put in more advertisements to make their money back which drives more people away which means they have to put more advertisements in to make more money back. It’s a vicious bad cycle.

I would agree about the constant commercial breaks. I didn’t out 2 and 2 together with your statement. I saw it as caliber of play.

like others have said....not really enough information, but the idea could range anywhere between "fine" and "awful" for me.  If they want to set up something like a PGA All Star Game skills challenge outside of tour season, great.  I'd probably tune in for a little bit and not really care what happens.  If they want to take PGA Players to TopGolf and have some sort of competition outside the tour season, fine.  I'd probably watch....once.  As long as these are supplemental to the PGA Tour season, I don't care much either way.

But I really don't want to see 1-day events of any sort popping up as official tour events.

Nothing but gimmicks at this point. All this does is make the rich richer. Rory, being involved on the Advisory Committee, should be looking out for all members of the Tour, not just the elite.

I think having this shenanigan event or whatever it is, is just one idea. I think Rory looks out for the tour in whole. As does DLIII.

If the PGA Tour ceases to exist with inaction, then by preserving the PGA Tour he's doing just that.

I can fix that. It's called a DVR with a FF button on your remote. Cuts out the ads, dead air between shots, and those worthless, sponsored "updates" and "challenges".

No, that doesn't "fix" that, as my finger would get tired, as I'd constantly be hitting buttons (and then just missing a shot, having to go back a little bit to see it, etc.).

Televised golf sucks.

Fast forwarding doesn't "cut out" anything, either. It plays it back… just faster, while you have to remain super vigilant to not miss things.

Thats like fixing a broken arm with a band-aid.  Doesn't touch the root of the problem, and doesn't really make anything better.  Maybe it saves you a little time?  But in exchange it would take away the ability to watch anything live, and you still only get to see such a small amount of the actual shots on the course.  The coverage itself is what needs fixed

I do think the networks could do some tweaking to at least improve the broadcasting. They could probably let their money grip a little loose and not just riddle the broadcasts with so many commercials. And absolutely with no money lost they have to completely eliminate the talking heads segments. Nobody needs to see some unknown CEO or president chatter away about how important the tournament is. Get them off the viewing and let them babble.

    • The wind was some kind of bad this afternoon. Tiger at +1 looks pretty good at the half way point. Going to be a fun weekend. 
    • Greens seem to be rolling like US Open greens on Sunday. Can't baby them, can't firm them. I hate putting in general but I haaaaaaaaate being forced to play defensive survival putting. There is no joy. 
    • Wind wreaked havoc.
    • Bruh. Simmer..😂
    • Yes, I listened to the first couple of seasons but just lost interest in the content .. I think they have proven as many of us already know it's really hard to get to scratch ... esp as we age ....  I was feeling confident in hitting my target this year of 5HC range(got to low 6s) but hit a wall in my short game in a few comps and now just over 9HC !!!! ...gutted but know it can go down just as fast esp during summer only 2-3 holes killing my score every round .. mental issues with one PAR3 at my local I think I've had a PAR on once in 20+ rds... I have great respect for anyone playing off low singles + golfers ...very impressive skills    I do wonder how playing different courses can help one's HC aspirations ... my local is well know tough greens and tight lies to bare sand pockets close to fairways/greens..  my closest 18 holes course I play at and score much better on average ..last three rounds +7 +6 +3 ..Vs my course best +6 with many much higher
