Let’s face it though.  The majority of sports watchers are going to pick football over golf most of the time.  I bet If Tiger Woods was about to win jacket 6... those numbers would look a little different. 

Exactly my point. Love him or hate him, Tiger is a very big draw for casual golf viewers and since DJ had such a big lead heading into sunday, it almost made it a foregone conclusion he would pull it out unless something catastrophic happened...you know, like scoring a 10 on a hole...

Funny enough, I recall watching sports center and even just evening news and all the mentions were "yeah, DJ won, set a record, BUT DID YOU SEE THIS 10 TIGER SHOT ON A SINGLE HOLE!!! Let's watch the reply!"

I guess Bryson was dealing with some dizzy spells throughout the tournament. As much as I've grown to dislike him the last few months, I hope that's a one time thing as opposed to some health complications. Golf needs a bad guy to root against 😉

Maybe because I am not a fan, but I sort of felt like it was a story to excuse his less-than-stellar golf. To me, it seems like something he would do.

Probably.  I gave the dude a chance... but I am not sure anymore.  He’s got the whole PGA tour chasing distance.  I truly believe if Adam Scott would have stuck with his regular set up and ball he would have given DJ a run.

Bryson is no longer the distance king.   Wilco Nienaber averaged 416.5 yards off the tee in round 1 on the European tour.  85 yards longer than the average

... with a halfway normal looking swing.  Looks nearly effortless... how?

5000ft above sea level on a rock hard golf course with the distance average only being measured on two holes... Impressive nonetheless but environmental factors played a huge role in it.

the roll out on that one drive i saw on sports center was massive. and it would’ve gone another 40 yards if the rough didn’t stop it

I think a lot of players will be going that direction.  The way the game is played has changed.  Distance has become number 1 priority.

Distance was king always and very few had the luxury of it.... now it is a requirement because they are making it that way.  250+ yard par 3’s.. 7600+ Yard courses.  Graham Delaet has had enough.

True,  but the application with regard to course management has changed.   I've seen metrics on holes on tour that were once considered layup holes that are now pull the driver holes so it isn't about overall course/hole length.   The application of strokes gained has really shown that it doesn't make sense to lay back.

And it just inherently makes sense, yet so many announcers still cling to what they know (looking at you here, Faldo), and their takes are less and less meaningful.

I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that thinks that about Faldo.

I’ve said it before I’ll say it again. Golf has done better than baseball in the aspect of growing with the times. Distance is king and everyone needs to get on board lol

I miss Johnny Miller, and yes I know this is an uncommon thing.  At least he had some good zingers every once and a while.  
 

One of my favorite Johnny moments is when he said something around the lines of... that is so over-the-top Ben Hogan would have puked.
