BBC coverage of the Masters and the Open is probably as good as Golf coverage gets at the moment.Classy, appropriate commentary intermingled with occasional, and very informative clips covering the course in general, certain holes, Golf technology and player interviews.Plus, there's Peter Alliss, who always tells it like it is.Quite entertaining.

Miguel Angel Jimenez is always a good reason to watch the Euro Tour. I love how he puffs out his chest like a rooster when he walks. It makes his paunch look like it's four feet in front of the rest of him at all times (I'm not sure about his listed weight of 162 pounds), but he's so bad-ass that he pulls it off.

How do you know there is no drama on the Euro Tour? What you see of the PGA is mostly local (i.e., US) news and most Europeans are not going to hear about it, and vice-versa. From what I can see, there are at least as many a**** on the Euro Tour as there are on the PGA, if not more. I could name several, but I think they are pretty obvious.

Both types of commentary are different, but equally good. And, I like listening to Sir Nick, even if his technical analysis is a little sloppy and he rambles on some. Also like Kelly Tilghman.

Enjoy the different courses and seeing players I am not familiar with.

Crowds at the Euro events definitely seem to be of the gentrified, old money variety. However, you also don't get the persistent idiots yelling "get in the hole."

    • Thanks for the outstanding week!! Absolute dream golf trip.
    • I’d hit an iron or whatever depending on the tee to the right side, then have a short iron in with a good angle to the green.
    • One thing no one has ever questioned about Tiger is his willingness and ability to work hard.

    • 99% of the time when I'm playing my home club, I'm walking and carrying, so don't drink alcohol (too bothersome to walk with it).  But when I'm on vacation or on a golf trip/round with buds, we're almost always on carts, and I'll get a beer or two throughout the round at least half the time.  I don't order cocktails on the course, though...like to keep it light. I've never noticed it affecting me negatively, but I'm convinced it helps me from time to time.  When I'm not playing my best, it's usually my flaw of getting a little fast with my hands and out of tempo.  A beer or two seems to help slow me down.  In FL a few years ago, I was playing at a resort with my son and just kinda grinding through the round, but not scoring.  At the turn I got a couple of fairly light local summer brews to take along, then birdied 10, 11, and 13 (nearly an ace!).  Playing on HHI a couple of weeks ago I was in the same scenario--hitting it pretty decent but just grinding and not making birdies.  Tried the beer method.  Sadly, this time--no difference at all.    One thing I NEVER do anymore is drink caffeine before a round (no coffee if my round is morning or early afternoon, or just my morning coffee and nothing else if my round is late afternoon).  I can absolutely see its impact on my game--really struggling with rushing the hands and keeping a smooth tempo...full swing, putting, everything.  Heck, on caffeine, I notice I talk faster than normal (saying a lot), and am a little jumpy.  So if I'm gonna do drugs (the legal ones) before golf, it's gonna be the one that slows me down.
