I don't go out of my way to watch it, and have not for the past several years. If we are out traveling, and the hotel's tv network has them, I might watch for a while. I am pretty old school and miss Peter Kessler, and Nancy Lopez when they would be on their programs. I don't have any interest to listening to their golf journalists. Just too much speculation, and innuendoes on their part. It's golf. How much can you report? You have one winner, and 140+/- losers at each tournament. The only programs I really miss are the old Shell tournaments, and the Bobby Jones series.

The other issue is the extra cost it takes to get their programming on cable, or satellite. It's not a premium channel in my opinion, although I understand they have switched to a basic cable channel to reach more subscribers. I know it's still a premium channel on DISH.

Most of my TV watching takes place on my HS internet/ROKU stuff. No commercials are a good thing. I watch the NFL, and MLB on a regular basis. The NBA I don't watch until the conference finals start.

"Golf should be played----Not watched".......... :beer:

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 miss Peter Kessler as well. That was GC's hay day IMO.

The addition of developmental tours within the Euopean and Asian professional golf systems is giving TGC more programming opportunities. I watched the Moscow Open this AM.

This additional tournament programming is very process oriented - you just get the cameras and a few announcers into place, and go with it. No real need for creativity.

Really? In front of everyone?

She signed one in front of everybody and I picked up her drive in the fairway. That Sharpie still hasn't worn off.

[/quote] http://thepeterkesslershowrevolutiongolf.libsyn.com/ Peter Kessler sends me emails all the time about his podcasts for Revolution Golf. I should listen more but when I do, I always learn something.

It was a very bad attempt at humor from my side, I'm sorry.

Actually it was the funniest comment of the day. I spit up my coffee when I saw your zinger. Well done.

[quote name="Valleygolfer" url="/t/72118/golf-channel/100_10#post_1026707"] He has to be joking. It was the first thing I thought, you just got there first @Abu3baid [/quote] I think it is just not as funny when the poster doesn't get it or chooses to ignore it... But, he made the mistake of saying she signed my "balls"!!! If he said she signed my ball it wouldn't have registered! He did confirm that she did it in front of everyone, I'm just surprised he wasn't embarrassed! Ok back on topic I'm sorry again for all of this OT stuff!
