They need to get that message to the PGA Tour.

I actually watched the whole thing.  I found the content a bit interesting, but I think there's money to be made by hiring the narrator for an insomnia sound-track -- serious sleep inducing tones there. Liked the cameos by the better known golfers.

This wasn't supposed to be entertainment. It was aimed specifically at and shown to the players. They either paid attention or pay the price.

LOL monotone is still monotone, even with an English accent.

Good stuff though if you can stand sitting through it. Problem is like my club most of the slow players don't think they are slow and will get nothing out of it. But if it helps just one player...

Must be the "grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" situation.  The majority of people on the NA side of the ocean would much rather watch and listen to the European announcers, who are much less "full of themselves".  Have you noticed that there is a growing number of announcers on the American telecasts who are not American?  I'm sure there is a valid reason for this.

He should have also been handed a further one-shot penalty for confusing people. We already have a Charl Schwartzel and a George Coetzee among our top golfers. Add in a Charl Coetzee and it all just gets too bloody hard to follow ...

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
