[rant]I for one wish The Golf Channel would put programming information in about two shows: The 19th Hole and Inside the PGA Tour.

Every week, all 40 reruns are recorded by my TiVo because The Golf Channel doesn't supply a description. Y'know, like "Pebble Recap, Nissan Preview". If they did that, my TiVo would know it recorded the same show in the past 30 days and not record every one of 'em.

It almost makes me want to cancel the season passes for the shows.[/rant]

Watching the 19th Hole this week didn't make you cancel your season pass????

That was the worst show I've seen produced by The Golf Channel. I'd rather have watched the Hammer infomerical. Those guys had Retief Goosen, the 5th ranked player in the world live, and for 15 minutes they showed him pictures of elephants, zebras, Dan Marino, and those two knuckle head panelists???? I didn't get one bit of golf related information from that damn show. I think they're trying to copy ESPN's Pardon the Interruption with Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. That show is funny, the panelists are very witty, and they talk about good topics (although they're not too good at covering golf). Those two guys on 19th Hole seem to have no idea what they're talking about, anyone on this forum could easily replace them and the show would be 100% better.
Tune in as we discuss the hottest topics in the world of Golf, including a wrap-up panelist discussion on the 2005 Nissan Open and much more!

Last week's show fulfilled absolutely none of that. I hope someone from the golf channel reads this post and rewrites the script for next week to make the show golf related.

Good point.

That was

And Retief seemed to have no friggin' clue what was going on the whole time. He didn't seem to understand that he was on camera, nothing. He flat out admitted he had no idea who Charles or "Big Dog" were, and I gave up counting the number of times I heard the words "Big" and "Dog" together after I hit 15 or so. Ridiculous.

You're right: it was pitiful. Downright despicable.
I think they're trying to copy

They could have tried to copy Wayne's World and done a better job.

anyone on this forum could easily replace them and the show would be 100% better.

Hmmm... (/me wanders off to hatch an idea...).

    • Fair enough. I wouldn't have the slightest guess on average trips per licensed driver, but I would think that using driver instead of car would be more accurate.
    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be?
