I was just curious if anyone had a " LEAST FAVORITE " golf commentator?

I can't stand Johnny Miller. He's annoying as :censored: , very negative, and it seems like every chance he gets, he talks about himself.

I have a few others that are on my list that in some way irritate me and I will put these names in a poll (in no particular order).

Let me know your thoughts!!

Everyone h ave a safe & wonderful 4th of July , 2014!!!

-Jason

A pampas ass? That would be what, some kind of Argentinian mule? Personally I don't find Faldo especially pompous, his TV persona is surprisingly OK considering how notoriously difficult a personality he had as a player.

I'm on the fence about Faldo, I think he's gotten a little better in recent months...I didn't even think about Berman, but agreed, definitely annoying (he can stick his "back, back, back" up his a$$, a$$, a$$ LOL)

Is there any possible way to add Tom Abbott, Paul Azinger, Chris Berman, Nick Faldo, David Feherty, Rich Lerner, Gary Koch, Peter Jacobsen, and Gary McCord to the poll? It'd be a more accurate representation  of whom the community dislikes the most.

You guys in the states are fortunate you have so many good commentators. For an excruciating lesson in boring you need to watch any European Tour programme!!!! Mailman

Really..? When I've watched the Euro tour, I liked the way they announced the game. Dougie, can't recall his last name, seemed like a good announcer. Do have tons of commercials during a tournament ..?

No not really Hammer, the number if commercials is no more or less than usual. But I guess each to their own when it comes to commentating. Personally I can't stand the Argentinian Donkey and Monty! :) Regards Mailman

None of them bother me, I'm more focused on the golf.

It is not even close for me, Brandel Chamblee.  He is a puke.  If Bob Costas was on with him, it would be exponential pukes.  I want whoever is announcing with them to just punch them in the face.

Miller is my favorite, and not just on that list.  I like his honesty and knowledge of the game.  Always liked Peter Alliss too.  Judy Rankin does a professional job.

Chamblee is the least liked on that list.  Not too fond of Faldo either.

I guess I don't watch enough golf these days though, because I wouldn't know Tripp Isenhour if I bumped into him.

John Miller is my favorite also. Tells it like it is.

My least favorite is Chris Berman. Let him do something other than golf, I don't understand how he ever landed a links gig.

Anybody who is too "careful". Kelly Tilghman is my least favourite. Ever since she made that remark about Woods way back, she has been way too soft and fake.

BERMAN is the worst. Why they let that in front of a camera is beyond me

    • Are you allowed to use the cart for the practice round.  If so, I would recommend using it, purely because you are practicing one day before the tournament and the less tired you are, the better.  For your caddie, it does not make a huge difference.  Unless carrying the bag tires him out so much that it will impact your pace of play during the tournament, either option is fine for him.  Good luck with the tourney and hydrating and carb loading the day before the tournament is huge.  Make sure you have a good breakfast early in the morning, say 6 am or so, which will then allow you to snack lightly through the tournament and keep your energy levels up
    • Shot 80 yesterday which is my best score since starting up golf again last year. I was 2 under after 7 so part of me feels a little bit disappointed that I let it slip!   I was feeling so good on the tee at 8 that I thought I'd hit a little draw into the lateral slope of the fairway to get a better position.  Unfortunately my ball missed the ground and went into the trees.  Took a few holes to get the wheels back on and back to playing shots I can actually hit.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.
