I think that predetermined story lines and video essay style editorializing are as much a part of golf broadcasting any more as the on course action.  It's one reason why I watch so much less golf on

I will miss Johnny Miller, the best broadcaster in golf. Buck is a pro and he'll be fine. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now, but I don't like Greg Norman even a little bit. I will be surp

Yeah, but did you know Jordan Spieth is 21 years old?  I bet not. ;)

Too much talk not enough action and when the action starts they don't cover the whole field, too much of following the top 4.

In other words, everything we complain about the production on all the other networks that carry golf events.

Right. Most of these complaints aren't unique.

One time in TST chat, @JetFan1983 spent like an hour looking up the theme songs different networks use for different events. IIRC, Yanni composed like half of them. Dude is a theme song composing fiend.

Fox's theme is so generic and bland. I can't even replay it in my head it's so rice cake tasteless.

Haha, funny you mention that. I still miss the old CBS Yanni intro. They had a much better build up to the weekend rounds.

Hmmm for some reason it's not skipping directly to where I set it to. 5:10 or so is a good part to jump to.

Actually I like Buck.  He has just the right amount of respect, but at the same time doesn't put golf on some sort of bullshit pedestal.  Norman on the other hand sounds like a Neanderthal at this point., and is providing no additional insight.  Pavin is decent and has potential, however Weiskopf has to go.  He's out of touch with today's game, and like Norman, isn't providing anything of value.  And I grew up watching Nicklaus, Trevino, Weiskopf, so this is hard for me to admit.

Also, like someone else mentioned, the background audio is ruining the telecast.  I do miss Johnny Miller and company.

My wife said who is the woman doing the after the round interviews she looks stiff and uncomfortable. I told her she  is just eye candy for the men watching the

Open.

Then when I googles her I find a link to this forum where there is a thread discussing whether her boobs are real. So I guess I was not far off. :-D

The post round interviews Holly is doing are horrible.  I don't know why they are holding microphones rather than using a boom mic or wireless lapel mics, she and the guys she's interviewing look awkward holding them.  She's also standing sideways to the camera throughout most of the interviews which gives her no eye contact with the viewing audience.

The questions are weak, almost gratuitous without any real point behind them.  I realize the interview with Kisner was to discuss Day's condition but how about asking the guy a question about his own round to not make it seem so obvious.

Agree -- my guess is they are feeding her the questions... and they are not making use of her "assets". On TGC, she brought a lot of energy to the equation, whether you liked her or not, and she typically asked decent questions. With Fox, she seems a waste... at the moment.
