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

It’s like having the username NoBrusselSprouts in a food forum. 😜

I just tune him out.

Azinger said this morning that J.B. Holmes was "literally getting the train back on the tracks". GEEEEZ. If ever there was an example of abuse of the word "literally", that was it.

I wonder how many times Azinger said, ‘release.’?

Not as often as Faldo does.  “And there’s the release.”

I don’t pay much attention to them for most of the broadcast. Otherwise I’d find myself annoyed at terms like “lofted metal.”

Yeah, "lofted metal". The other annoying one for me is, "less than driver".

I fail to see how this is annoying. It is factually correct. Also, sometimes it is difficult to determine what exactly the club the golfer is hitting. The crew don’t want to say it’s a 3w when it might be a 2w, 5w, 7w, or even a hybrid. “Less than driver” is a quick and accurate phrase. Now, if you want to argue that the announcers should be quiet more often, I’m on board, but I have no problem with the phrase you brought up.

Very true and I considered that argument myself the first 30 or 40 times I heard the term from him but I would also argue that every club, other than driver (and putter?), could be construed as "less than driver". To me, it's the same as saying "lofted metal". It imparts no useful info.

That's the point though. They don't always know what they're teeing off with. It beats saying something like, "some kind of metal wood or hybrid club" each time. If they tee off with an iron, they usually say so; it's usually only when it's a fairway wood or hybrid club do they say "less than driver."

    • Best 92 ever for me. 2nd time on this course that has many elevation changes and hidden hazards. 6 penalty strokes and never really put anything together. But also hit everything solid. I'll take it any day.
    • Day 13 Full swing iron practice with a 6i, 8i and GW.
    • Obviously, if a person made 100% of them on perfect greens, then on substandard greens they would miss putts. So, it would never benefit them.  Let's say a golfer makes 50% of putts on perfect greens, and on bad greens 50% of putts made were deflected away, and 50% of putts missed were deflected in, then their made % would not change.  I don't know we could assume that the green would cause 50% of the putts to miss for the golfer who made 100% on perfect greens, but it would cause a certain % of their putts to miss.  I would say that it hurts the better putters more and maybe doesn't effect bad putters as much. A horrible putter it may never help 😛. If you're not even close for a deflection. 
    • Day 204.  Several times during football Sunday, I took 5-10 minute breaks to hit a few practice balls.  As always, the focus was on the slow correct swings.  I think several small sessions might be better for me than one extended long session:  I don't always have good discipline as I go past the 15 minute mark, and sometimes I catch myself raking in a ball and hitting it right away;  by contrast, when I consciously start a short session, I'm going to at least set in with what I set to do. 
    • (Written without reading anyone else's replies) I voted the difference would increase.  Here's my line of thinking.  The good putter would have been in or close on the ideal surface;  so while the bumps can keep some out, it can also push some that were going to be close into the cup.  Luck at least has a chance to be at least as beneficial as it is hurtful.  By contrast, the poor putters can't really benefit much from luck -- sure, it might cause a ball to finish closer to the cup, but they aren't missing by two bumps instead of one.
