That article summed up my thoughts exactly. It was really, really bad. I am also glad I am not the only one who hates that Connection song.😬

Sooooo upset! Had the absolute perfect spot today. Watched the few power groups tee off on 1, then posted up right between the green and tee on 15 and 16. Players were about 10 feet away. Was hoping to hangout there until those big groups came through. Unfortunately, mother nature decided we needed a little rain and they ended up calling it quits for the day. [emoji22]

Just an observation on the size of the gallery following Tiger's group. Can you really see much of anything following Tiger and Rory in this insanely large crowd. I would think you'd be better off just watching all of this on TV, because they are going to show you everything Tiger does anyway.

It was absolute chaos.

golf coverage on TV just sucks period. And with Tiger being in any tournament just means he's all you'll see. I honestly don't even complain anymore.

At least the Masters has a contract where they don't shove commercials down your throat

I watched a good portion of the featured group coverage this morning that was streaming. It was actually really great. Watching every shot spieth, rose and Rahm took was.really cool.

 

I may start doing more of that if tv coverage is going to be that bad just pick a group and watch them play

the streaming of featured groups is ok, and it might as well have been the tnt coverage in the afternoon with all tiger all the time. The problem with featured groups is that the audio for the telecast is not as loud as the commercials and there is a ton of down time between each groups shots. If they could switch between 3 or 4 groups simultaneously you'd have never ending shots to show. But I guess we must see 100 omega commercials an hour. [emoji849]

A handful of big names heading home for the weekend.  The delay looked to have really hurt Reed, ZJ, and Bubba. Shaping up to be a horse-race finish.

Yeah, but still a really great leaderboard for the weekend.

They should have had a shotgun start for today's round -

 

That would have set the PGA apart and made it unique —- :)

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Don't worry. They'll make sure to give you non-stop coverage of every shot Tiger hits, even if he's 5 shots off of the lead on Sunday with 2 holes to play.

You're probably right, G.

But they do it for ratings, one would guess.

Somebody wants that, and apparently there's enough of them to cause that kind of coverage.

Still not sure how whatever music or audio app features in a car will help you when the car dies with less than 70,000 miles on it, because it was made by a company that makes cheap crap on four wheels.
