Innovation at the British Masters

So this week the British Masters is being held at the Grove GC near London (home to a WGC win for Tiger back in the day).

 

Sky Sports (Murdochs baby) resurrected this event last year and this year they are trying a few things out to extend the interest.

 

After the Pro Am there was a night time par 3 shoot out, celebs and pro's involved with 2000 people turning up, but the 8 pro's involved played one hole match play. Fireworks, floodlights and cheering and booing (worth a look at sky sports website for some footage).

 

Watching today they are doing interviews whilst players walk off the tee, it's super relaxed and friendly and almost has a shells world of golf feel. I like it. Mind you they are mostly following The Beef at the moment - which is always going to feel relaxed.

On-course cameras are trying something different too. Sweeping, moving shots. Looks like a lot of them are filming from free positions, not static like the usual ones.

Saw little of the par 3 shootout. Kind of cool in a way. Liked the flames shooting out after tee shots. LOL

watched a bit of it today, nice golf and a decent field (not a massive purse by US standards) - getting very autumnal here now in England but the greens look top notch.

 

For the final round the tv audience are able to vote to chose the pin position at one of the par 3's; just over the water by any chance?
