Chamblee, typically hated BY TW apologists..............sorry I need to proofread.

I love Feherty, but admit that I must carefully manage the dosage.

Speaking of Feherty, who would you like to see him feature? Some that come to my mind are: Laura Davies, Peter Thompson, Sam Torrance, Bill Murray and Darren Clarke.

I used to like Feherty more when we were getting smaller doses of him. It seems like he  is pushing a little too hard lately. I can't blame him when you get a shot at it take all you can.

also, someone mentioned the European Tour coverage....excellent. The calm and thoughtful commentators along with the distinct lack of hype is something I enjoy.

Golf Channel to me is worth the package for the weekend ALONE. It seems like almost every weekend there is at least one great tournament going on. This weekend both the PGA Tour and the European Tour

I'm a professional golf fan and I enjoy watching it so, naturally, I like the Golf Channel.

I think the Golf Channel is pretty darn good. It's not easy to do golf 24/7. The people that play the game just simply aren't that interesting, but they do a great job of paying attention to the key storylines, without beating them over the head like ESPN does. The Golf Channel is watchable pretty much 24/7. It's not perfect, I don't love everyone on it, but they do a pretty fantastic job in my opinion.

I picked up watching golf from my late father-in-law.  The best thing for me about watching golf is it can get tense and exciting for the players but relaxing for the viewer at the same time.

Golf Channel  +  Paige MacKenzie  =  homerun She's smart, funny, and sexy. :dance:  :roll: (Matt Ginella :loco:  . . . I wouldn't miss him)

I agree on Paige. Smart and sexy and seems cool to have a beer with. Great legs too.

Every channel has polarizing personalities.  I can do without the Morning Drive crew, but I can also do without pretty much every morning show (Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox and Friends).  It's hard to fill that much time, so they try to keep it light and goof around - it's fin,e it's just not my style.

The best thing they have done in recent years is more European Tour coverage on the weekends - I love being able to get up and turn on live golf in the morning - that's probably why The Open is my favorite tournament to watch.  I think they do a great job covering the majors and could do with less Kelly Tilghman, but I'm not sure who would serve as an anchor without her.  Her prepared lines are usually too over the top for me, but she does an admirable job, I guess.

In the end, I can put on a show about golf any time I want - that's a good thing.

He's turned into a parody of himself. No, he's turned into a parody of McCord.

Pretty much agree, with some qualifications.

Kelly, comes across as so fake and disingenuous I could puke. Pom pom waver! If they want to have a women that can speak intelligently about golf, the tour and maybe have a clue of humor, bring back Stephanie Sparks cute, fun and most of all genuine. Win McMurray or the other blond are fine too.

Gary is fine.

Charlie is fine, often ridluled about his eating habits like a frat house member, which was kind of amusing once, now it seems to be the on going daily joke......a joke is good once.

Holly, does nothing for me as far as content, heels lipstick and a cocktail dress looks so out of place. Outside of looks what value does she really bring? I now she's a good golfer, her previous role of reading headlines worked.

Thank god they got rid of Rhishad, took bad he didn't take Kelly with him.

Notah Begay, too monotone to come across as authoritive or interesting.

Damnon Hack has improved and shows enthusiasm for the sport and learning process.

Matt Ginella, there is a need for travel segment, I think its pretty obvious why Matt is on camera and for which demographics .

Micheal Breed, the show shows promise, but he talks way to much and too fast,it cmes across as irritating, slow it down.

Don't forget Martin Hall.

Holly is there to straighten up his ratings... and everyone else's

Eye candy who keeps it moving. Yes, the cocktail dress thing is for one thing ... next step is a plunging neckline for those dresses. Wonder why they haven't gone to the scissors yet...

I have always found Feherty pretty hilarious.

Also enjoy the Michael Breed instructional segments although...generally speaking I am not a big fan of receiving or adhering to instruction from someone who is not looking at your particular swing.

Currently there is friggin tiger love fest on the GC, with the pom poms being waved by Kelly, please! everyone knows who tiger woods is, the sun will come up tomorrow.  The stage hands should get some tissues to clean up the wet spot.

excuse me I need to go puke and change the channel

I am recording every episode. What a treat to be able to have watched the greatest player to ever play the game and he is only 38 at least another ten years of coverage I figure!

exactly... whether he is relevant or not. Even when he's 15 shots back, we still get every stroke even while some kid is lighting up the course and all we get is "this was earlier..."

he's not so much the problem as the bias and drooling on the TGC set, mostly by Kelly and Slow Lerner.

I used to watch all of Golf Central, it comes on at 5:00 p.m. here...now I wait until 5:20 or so....the Tiger butt kissing adoration period is usually over by then, though not always. The last ten minutes or so are decent.

    • How many women have been timed over 1500m in a pool? Not THAT many. Why wouldn't she dominate the times in this event - given that she is so impressively dominant? How many people have played golf competitively? I'll bet 99.9% of people you see on the street couldn't tell you who Oksana Chusovitina is. As for women's swimming, Shane Gould is the only person, male or female, to hold EVERY world freestyle record from 100m to 1500m  + 200m IM SIMULTANEOUSLY. (1972)
    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
