I stronly dislike Ryan Burr and Todd Lewis. Something about both those guys just makes me want to break my tv.

Other than them, I'm fine with most of the other people. I do like Nobilo, Faldo and don't mind Chamblee nearly as much as most people.

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.

Is Win McMurray done? Her Twitter page still shows GC stuff but she hasn't been on in months. Don't think she's been mentioned any time I've watched. Though can't say I've watched much lately. It's either another airing of GGEP or the talk shows, which have really gotten bad. Even the Live At stuff this year seemed repetitive and usually I am glued to GC during the week of a major.

They keep playing the footage over and over. Something that should be put to video archive at this point. It makes it feel like there is nothing else they can run...

It's only 3 days post Masters.  I don't imagine they're going to be done talking about the Masters champ for awhile yet.....

Yeah, it's sort of like watching one of the 24 hour "news networks". Stands to reason there is going to be a whole lot of redundancy if you watch it all day every day.

They probably get a lot better ratings talking about the Masters stuff over and over again than they do for some of their "normal" programming.

I didn't see anything about the Masters this AM in the 10-15 minutes I watched. Everything was about The Players, the new playoff format etc. They even had Damon sitting on #17 interviewing people.

A few years ago, I played in a scramble where Paige McKenzie was waiting on the 10th tee and would hit a drive for every group as they made the turn. We could play it if it was the best drive. She smoked one for our group, but the vangator flew it by her. :) She autographed my balls. BTW, she seemed cuter then. Maybe it was the beer.

Abu3baid,

Can you explain the 3baid?  I assume that's your son, but it's kind of cryptic.  How long were you in the Kingdom?  Did you ever get a chance to play at Rolling Hills (Aramco golf course).  I'm 4 years into it so far. It's such a great course, but difficult (73.5/137 from the blues).

Hey Craig.. nice to know other expats in KSA.. OT stuff below, I'll send you a pm.

Well, I could have used Abu Obaid (his name is Obaid), but the letter in Arabic is actually non existent in English even though the closest letter to it is O.. so people will usually use 3 to denote that letter in the English language (i.e.  ع )  - long story short it is pronounced Abu Obaid :)
I've been here for almost 2.5 years in Riyadh.. I have been to Dammam once, but I don't think they let anyone who is not part of Aramco or knows someone (maybe) on the golf course as far as I know, so I haven't been able to play it.
I have played the 3 courses in Riyadh
Arizona Golf Resort (9 hole executive course)
Dirab Country Club (very difficult)
Riyadh Greens (not too bad, open without many woods)
p.s. you have more experience and time spent in the middle east than my self :) ..  I'll send you a pm, it's nice to know other people from the States in KSA.

    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing.
