  1. Phil is not aging well...and I’m not talking about his game or looks or any of that. He just seems to be coming off the rails over the past few years and having a prolonged mid-life crisis. This is now part of an ongoing fact pattern of head scratching decisions from him.
  2. I would be all for the PC being nothing but captain’s picks. Would make it more fun and differentiated from the Ryder Cup IMO. Also, the tie concept is incredibly weak. In the event of a tie, have the captains pick one player to go sudden death for the win.
  3. People are still missing the bigger picture here. The announcers are not the main problem at CBS- everything else is...the absurd number of commercials (roughly one commercial per golf shot shown) the countless corporate plugs during coverage, the endless clips of dogs running on the beach. Actually showing golf shots seems like an inconvenient means to an end for CBS.
  4. The CBS telecast has chronic structural issues- the mind numbing volume of commercials and other brand plugs (Insperity leaderboard, Wyndham rewards nonsense, etc) drown out the few golf shots we get to see and leave me feeling like I took a quaalude after watching for 30 minutes. Getting rid of these guys is at least encouraging if it means that cbs recognizes that their status quo is broken, but I’m skeptical that they have the desire or wherewithal to change anything else.
  5. I would be all for a mixed doubles event...maybe top 50 in the world of each gender? Any male that doesn’t participate gets shamed for not caring about gender equality and growing the game 😁.
  6. Key word- pretend. Just like with the FedEx cup- pretend importance. Anyways, I’ll agree to disagree as I care about as much about the poty award as I do the FedEx cup...
  7. What’s complete BS? You really think Rory would rather have his FedEx cup and players wins (and whatever other tournaments he won) this year over another major? Dream on dude- if Rory is being honest, he takes Brooks’ year over his and it’s not particularly close.
  8. I’m all for no bunker raking, no yardage books, no green books, and an enforced shot clock, but yea, rolling the ball back would have the largest impact.
  9. I guess it’s a popularity contest... which season would Rory of rather had- his or Brooks’? I’m betting on Brooks’ which makes his POY win a bit idiotic in my book. To the topic of this thread- I don’t think Rory is overrated but I do think he’s underachieved.
  10. Brooks’ outspokenness on slow play has converted me from a ‘meh’ observer of his to a full blown fan. Love it and love how much it bothers BDC.
  11. I wish Brooks had been playing with this clown... he probably would have gone ahead and started playing the next hole. Most of the tour’s problem, including slow play, all stem from the same issue- the tour treats the players like privileged royalty at the expense of the overall game and entertainment product.
  12. I’ve been on the sidelines with Zinger and cautiously optimistic that he could be serviceable once he gets some reps under his belt....but he was pretty bad this week.
  13. Historically, golfers who are playing at the level Brooks is playing have been assholes. That said, Brooks isn’t one. Slow play is a cancer in the game and he’s right for calling attention to it.
  14. Question for those from Ireland or the UK...or frankly anyone from Europe with more context than me. Shouldn’t N Irish fans generally be more supportive of Brit players (Fleetwood, etc.) than Lowry? I’ve been a bit surprised this weekend by how overwhelming the crowd is in favor of Lowry. Granted, I’m sure there are plenty of Irish (Republic of Ireland) fans in attendance but just curious.
