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.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

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?

Apart from DJ, there's no one particularly exciting in contention anyway, so who cares if they show lots of Tiger, as long as the leaders get coverage too.
A great shot is when you go for it and pull it off. A smart shot is when you don't have the guts to try it. ~ Phil Mickelson.

    • I mentioned Radovich vs NFL - Radovich seeking compensation after having joined another league and was forever banned from the NFL in any form, even later in life trying to join as a coach or something. SC sides with Radovich The article I linked mentions the fairly recent NCAA vs Alston - on restricting college player compensation: "the NCAA is acting in violation Section 1 of the Sherman Act, which prohibits any “contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce.”"   NCAA v. Alston: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning? In its unanimous 9-0 decision in NCAA v. Alston, the Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that struck down NCAA caps on student-athlete academic... How about LA Colliseum vs NFL, when the raiders were blocked from moving to LA in the 80s due to a rule that required 3/4 vote of teams in the NFL. LA Colliseum wins saying rule was violating Sherman Anti Trust There are dozens more.   The common thing here to me is that, it doesn't matter if there is a "rule" even if it was agreed to if the rule is illegal.
    • You aren't saying anything unreasonable. For some reason this is a very emotionally charged topic and it brings out people who want things to be a certain way regardless of the law.  Five minutes on Google reading law blogs shows the players have at least pretty good anti-trust case.   The Supreme Court ruled against the NFL in the 1950s,  when they blacklisted players who played in a rival league.  The PGA Tour colluding with the European Tour, World Golf Rankings, the entities that organize majors and Ryder Cup and potentially going against their charter as a non-profit are all going to be brought up.  I am sure the PGA Tour has consulted with lawyers and will have counterpoints. A lot of it will probably depend on judges. I would guess the current administration would be more amenable to the player's suit than most as they are already pursuing companies over non-competes and collusion. You shouldn't even need Google for at least one example.  Trump and the USFL vs the NFL.  They won but weren't awarded damages. Otherwise you could Google and find this case as the first thing listed. Radovich v. National Football League :: 352 U.S. 445 (1957) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center Radovich v. National Football League  
    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.
