I think he was trying to do his version of Miller by ‘calling it as he sees it’ but just doesn’t have it.

Azinger said, ‘ Lately BD has been unfairly a punching bag on this slow play discussion.’ WTF? Come on Azinger....don’t start that pansy nonsense. He deserved every bit of the criticism he got and practically dared people to challenge him on it. 

Two thumbs down for Putz Azinger.

I heard him say something so stupid last weekend and I can't remember what it was.  I wanted to post it here.  The funny thing is that I really liked him as a player.  Then, when he got cancer, I was really rooting for him to get well and not lose his arm.  He went through a lot.  I hope he goes on the Senior Tour when his time comes.  But his commentary is from hunger.

Paul is 59. I believe his time has come and gone.

He seems so out of place in this "Vanity" piece they are doing before the Tournament with the rest of the guys, and all he seems to be able to talk about is the money.

I think Paul has a very tough act to follow, I loved listening to Johnny Miller. Miller made the game interesting to listen to and I always enjoyed his insightful commentary.

My impression of Paul is that he is trying too hard and talks too much, often stating the obvious over and over again.

Johnny Miller was my favorite but I think Azinger is doing okay. I think they could do better...I wouldn't mind seeing Chamblee or Nobilo

Azinger just said ‘ oh...well he pulled that one..’ as the ball sticks tight to the pin about 8-10’.

Azinger is terrible ! Triple bogey...

I'm not a fan, but he's not bad enough that I'd link my entire online identity to Zinger's suckiness.

    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
    • Day 149.  I played 18 today with two friends.  A very narrow course (the "Babe" course in Industry Hills), I had three lost balls that I don't think would have left the playing area if I had hit them at my home course.   I should have lost a fourth but sadly found it (my recovery was sufficiently difficult, and I tried playing high percentage shots, too, that I hit my fourth from closer to the tee than my provisional landed).  I still shot a 93 and hit many greens with full swings, even if they weren't all for in-regulation (but I still had 6 GIR).   Note to self:  play narrow courses a bit more, and get better at these tee shots. Also I feel I putted well but I'm not going to gamble trying to get the stats off the GG.
    • That's Ok, but not a very ambitious goal at all. It should be pretty straightforward to get within 10%. 30 ft is a typical distance for a first putt (even for the pros), and you should hardly ever 3-putt those, so the key is to be within 3 ft (or 10%). Put it another way, when you have a cross-country (or cross green) putt of 90 ft, a decent result is to be around 6ft, or 9ft if you want, so 10%.  20% puts you. way too far out. To the OP, I was the worst putter in the world when I started. It took me almost 4 years of playing 9 holes after work on Fridays to get my first par, because I was on very few greens (1 or maybe 2 at most per 9), but because I was 3-putting from everywhere. I fixed this by practicing dialing in the speed correctly. And that also means hitting the ball reliably with the center of the face. Then hone yours skills on reading greens, but the most important part remains controlling the speed. FWIW, some 15 years after I made that first par, putting is the strength of my game and I only 3-putt about 2% of the holes according to my stats (in GolfPad), or about 1 hole every 3 rounds, on average.  You too can do it: it's much easier than drastically improving one's long game!
    • What constitutes slow play for me is when I'm on a hot course and not playing so well, and the group in front will never be invited to play speed golf in the Olympics.  My mind begins to wander to a beach, a cold gin & tonic and my shady side patio.
