TaylorMade Driving Relief With Rory/DJ vs Rickie and Matt Wolff

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Rick Reilly wrote a column today about that is going to be one of the big benefits of having no fans in attendance.   As well as watching them hit out of rough instead of trampled down grass by spectators.   And not getting generous drops when they blow it over the green and get to drop by the grandstand. 
 

All true.

I lost 10 points when Rickie went on a birdie binge on the back.  I had him for 2 and he ended up with 4. 

Fun to play along.

Loved watching this!  Seeing players carry their own bag and hearing their commentary and conversations was great.

I quit fantasy football last year.  So maybe this will take its place.

I don’t usually like skins games, but I enjoyed watching, guess it’s because I haven’t seen live golf in a while. It was fun to see on shorts, carrying their own bags with no caddies and the chatter. They didn’t seem to read greens as well as usual - not sure if that was no practice round, no green book and/or no caddies. Closest to the pin for $1.1M, more than the league I play in. 

Looking forward to Tiger, Phil, Tom & Peyton next week, another event I wouldn’t normally watch. New times...

I honestly cannot wait until those guys lose a ball that would’ve been found/stopped by a crowd!!!! I hope Sergio does it first.... I’ll watch the clubs fly, and enjoy his tantrum!!!

I really enjoyed watching this. I found myself wishing they would have went with pool noodles in the cups and leaving the flag in.

For once, one of the networks had a legitimate excuse for not showing golf between shots.

Fortunately this satisfied my appetite for live action, so I didn't watch 1 lap or even one second of NASCAR 🙂

I really enjoyed this but, I think I would have enjoyed it more if it was on a tape delay. That way they could edit out all the dead time. There were lots of commercials, and lots of time just looking at ocean shots..

Your goals are different than the folks paying to put on the event.

Totally true, I completely acknowledge that. I am looking at it from a viewers perspective and a selfish one at that.

Fox will be broadcasting the Walker Cup from Seminole next year.  I wish the PGA Tour would realize, venue matters!

It totally matters. Although watching this, I struggled to see what all the hubbub about Seminole is. I found the course not all that exciting. I am sure many will disagree, and that is totally fine. My thought is the extreme exclusivity is what is driving the love for it. It is a very typical Donald Ross course. Not that interesting from tee to green but the green complex's get kinda crazy. 

Also, it is sometimes hard to truly see a course on TV.

That's why 90% of golf I watch, I watch on DVR, or heck probably 90% of most sporting events, I do.  I'll start watching about an hour into the telecast on DVR and often finish  up right around the actual finish time. 

The only down side to that is you can't participate in live tweet or live threads.   You look pretty stupid on Twitter for talking about a great catch or a blown call in the 1st quarter when they are in the second.  Or saying this is going to be a blowout, before you see the other team has scored 3 touchdowns in less than 5 minutes 

At least that's what a "friend" has told me 🙂

Totally true. Tape delay/DVR in the instant media world we live in now does have its own drawbacks..

I think Seminole is probably one of those places that can only be truly appreciated in person.  We can see the defining characteristics of whispy brownish grass and large sand dunes at places like St. Andrews, Whistling Straits and Pinehurst on TV.  Seminole appears to be much more subtle in its defining characteristics.  I also feel like the time of year in south Florida aided in the browned out look.  If this were played in the winter, it would likely "popped" more on TV because the fairways and greens would have been much more green.
