Annoyed (Can someone explain?)

Recommended Posts

I'm all for the Golf Channel showing the European Tour...but come on....when guys like Spieth, Woodland, Dufner, and Rose are on the course...how do they not have a live feed for us? Not even CBS has their little 2 hole feed this weekend. That's all we really need...a camera on 1 and 10 or something like that.

Is there a reason for the ultimate screwjob that is the golf channel won't be showing the Valspar tournament live until 2 FRIGGIN PM central time?

I suppose there are contract obligations and restrictions that I know nothing about but I've complained for years that there's a tournament going on and I'm sitting there watching something stupid like Golf Central or Morning Drive or (the too hyperactive for my liking) Michael Breed giving conflicting golf tips.

I was always especially annoyed when they are finishing a round from the previous day the next morning and Tiger had a great round going and I couldn't even watch it.

I agree, they should be at the point where they can do a Live@ every week at a minimum regardless of the GC contract.

Same here. Like last week(thursday & friday) at Doral, on GC, it says at 12pm: coverage of 1st round/ 2nd round. I tuned in, it was Golf Central from noon to 1pm. Coverage only began at 1pm. It pisses me off when they do that.

There's probably a backhaul wildfeed on C-Band or Ku-Band of this tournament somewhere.  There almost always is before main network coverage starts on the Golf Channel / NBC / CBS (NBC this weekend).

Of course, you need to have a satellite dish up and a receiver capable of DVB-S2 (in most cases) to get these feeds... but they are cool to watch, as there are no commercials and you also see / hear behind-the-scenes production stuff.

    • Hi everyone,

      Attached is my winter training plan (The attahcement is coloured in its full glory).  TI am working on changing my swing to a new style (Moe Norman style single plane) so need to work on putting, full swing and pitching.  I have set it up as block periodized with 7 week mesocycles.  In the weeks that say technical those will be primarily slow work trying to hammer down the finer points of the skill followed by a technique week where I add more constraints to make it more game like followed by a week that will primarily game like with lots of constraints (ie diff targets, hitting it shorter longer etc.)  My chipping and pitching is the best part of  my game so it got one cycle while full swing and putting got two.  Putting is the worst part of game so thats why put it closest to the start of the season so I could peak that right before the season starts.

      If you are somebody who knows about periodization or just have some advice on whether what I have done here will work to improve all aspects of my game in the long term I would appreciate it.  I've thrown everything I know about periodization, distributed learning and interleaving at it from my teaching background.  I'm hoping others might give me their honest opinion on my plan.  I am only going on what I have read and researched so any comments and criticism is welcome.

      Thanks. Copy of Annual-Competitive-Plan-Blank-Template.xlsx
    • Let me offer a couple of suggestions that may not make sense at first. I do not think it is a good idea for heavier people to run. One it is hard on the body. You are pounding down on the knees and joints. Believe it or not you can increase your resting heart rate by deep breathing. Mine is between 38 and 43. I do Yoga and practice Deep breathing. Now I have been doing this for many years, but I suggest going to youtube and find a video on deep breathing  and start a practice. If you want to drop some weight change your diet. Eat more salads and plant based foods. Hope this helps
    • I meant that my hands don't have to follow each other and aren't locked together when off the club. I was able to roll my left wrist a bit over the top and it is not affecting my right hand. I am, however not locking my fingers as much anymore. They're still locked, but not as pronounced.
    • iPhone 8 will be on display in stores tomorrow. Also ATP podcast and their food talk, thought I'd post it.
    • If your hands move independently that could cause some inconsistencies in your swing?
