After that first pull-hook, it seems like he's been doing well enough. Not making birdies, missed more fairways and greens, but still making pars.

Agreed. They shouldn't even have shown any of his shots.

I went to a random range on the way home from a trip and all they were talking about was tiger. I would say then the tv is covering what most want to hear about.

I realize that he's still the number one player in the world and he's great for the ratings, but it does seem a little unfair though to all of the players ahead of him who are obviously playing better and not getting any TV time.

Great sentiment, but completely untrue. Virtually everyone ahead of him got TV coverage, and the leaders get covered as much as they do in any tournament. Why do they show Tiger when he's out of contention, between showing shots of the leaders? Because he's won 70+ times including 14 majors.

No........ not surprised. Just bored with everyone drooling over the "mesiah"

And I'm bored with people making comments about how they're tired of seeing him on TV. He was a small part of the coverage - a very small part - and enough people want to see him that the networks show him. End of story.

Fast forward if you don't want to see him. If you're watching live, then trust me, it ain't the Tiger coverage that's boring you.

Why drool all over Tiger for a large part of the coverage when he is not within sniffing distance of the lead? I thought everyone liked seeing good golf. Is it a "man crush" thing........ or do people like watching train wrecks?

The number of commercials are mind numbing, especially towards the last hour, when there are fewer players to cover.

Looking at the forum subjects and no one is talking about the US Amateur. I was switching between both and found myself watching the US Amateur more.

a) He wasn't a "large part" of the coverage by any stretch of the definition.

b) He's the world's best and has won 70+ and 14 majors. It's that simple. Never mind the below reason...
I thought everyone liked seeing

He shot -3 in about five holes while being covered by CBS. Pretty good golf, no?

    • Day 18: Mirror work again. Still working on set up - knees a little more bent and hips over my heels more. 
    • I started my golf journey in June 2021 and landed here a the Sandtrap.com pretty early on.  Everyone I've met in golf -- both here and elsewhere -- has been so kind and helpful.  I'm deeply honored to be the 2021 Rookie of the Year.  Hopefully the award isn't like the "Best New Artist" Grammy.   Here's looking forward to a great golf journey full of great golf people.  ⭐ My heartfelt (and well deserved) congratulations to the other winners. ⭐
    • Day 7: Did more work hitting balls outside today. Lots of wind last night blew the net and mat all over the yard, so spent some time putting my practice area back together and measuring out distances for Mevo+. Worked with 7-iron doing rehearsals on backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron working on transition.
