Watching golf after The Masters


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Is it jsut me or is there not as much excitement to watch golf on tv after the masters. Besides the up coming majors I just don't feel like watching as much golf on tv as I did before the masters. Maybe its because its finally spring and I'm playing and getting out more?

 

What about you? Do you watch more or less golf on tv after the first major of the year?

I watch less. Maybe it's the tournaments? They don't seem to have the same excitement after the Masters. Except for the big ones. And maybe that's why....maybe the big names are gearing up for the Players, U.S. Open and Open Champ.

In any case, I didn't watch any of Harbor Town or the Zurich and probly won't watch much until the Players.

Now that the weather is becoming "golfable,"  it's time to play golf, not watch it.

 

I'm not on the forum as much, either.

 

Because,... GOLF! ;)

Only the majors get my attention nowadays. Golf is a lot like the MLB and the NBA for me. There's so much content that it's almost overbearing. I don't have the time to really get into regular season games like years in the last. Watching every Celtics game of the season en route to a finals win was pretty epic and also impossible to ever do again. #NoLifeThatYeat

Im to the point where I only watch the majors.  Other than the majors, the rest of the tournaments dont matter anyways and unless a player I like is leading or in contention going into the final round, I dont really have much motivation to watch.

I still love watching golf, but it's mostly weather and kid dependent.  My days of being able to sit on the couch on a Sunday afternoon for 4-5 hours and watch golf are about 4 years past (have 4 & 1yr olds).

 

With nicer weather here I'd much rather be playing golf or outside with the kids anyway.  It's not for lack of wanting, but other things bring me more enjoyment.  Even with the Masters I had to record it and stay off social media all day until I could watch it after the kids went to bed.

Without the biggest names in the fields, the tournaments after the Masters are a hangover. Plus the Masters was (virtually) won by Thursday night this year. So the hype ended up being deflated, from a competition point of view.

We have the Players coming up, that should generate more interest.

I have the golf on every night it's on, Thursday-Sunday, but I won't flick channels on major weekends, on regular tournament weekends something else might take my interest.

It's that way every year, I think it's because the "field" isn't as good, sure you get good players but there are only a few of the top players, the next tournament that usually features a very strong field is the Wells Fargo Championship here at Quail Hollow, but I think that's the tourney where guys are fearing up for the next major, and it's a really tough challenging course.

Of course I watch PGA golf all year and loads of it, much more than European tour events.

 

But, I'm lucky the golf is on from 8pm usually in the UK, so instead of some mindless sh@t involving simon cowell I get to watch golf (if Mrs weary lets me of course).

 

So this past weekend was a great event, the final day was one of the best in months.

 

But of course there's a lull after the Masters, now everything builds to the Two Opens and the players do need to go and see their families etc.
