Anyone watch "the Match" last night


Recommended Posts

I watched it on and off between shows. Overall I thought it was boring but I was in total awe of the course.

Course was amazing.    I turned it on late and off early.   I think “the match” has run its course.   The couple of times that Phil asked Bryson to verbalize what he was thinking was interesting but probably nothing different than other pros do.  There wasn’t good chemistry between the Rogers and Bryson.   Seemed like Phil was trying to keep things interesting but couldn’t do it alone.

only things interesting were the magnificence of the course and Brady ribbing Rodgers about playing for the Packers this year...

they should have recorded and edited it down to 2 hours. That was an extremely long round and it only went 16 holes. Imagine if they were tied after 18.

I echo what everyone else has said about the course, looked like a video game. 

I don't know if I think The Match has run it's course. I enjoy watching mic'd up exhibitions but the live format makes for a lot of commercials and pictures of people just sitting in their carts waiting to hit. Phil has gotten comfortable with entertaining while still being competitive but for many of the other players who have been in one of these live exhibitions, there is a lot of silence. How many of us get home and our wife/gf ask what we talked about... "ummm, golf" "For over 4 hours?" "yup".  There is not going to be major banter, or trash talking. That only happens when you get your regulars together and matching celebs and pros who rarely play together is no different than the Wednesday charity scramble of a tournament. 

I think the format needs to change. Film the match, edit out the sitting and waiting, add in JT to do color commentary while watching the film. Do funny replays of the wild shots. Make it 2 hours and it would be a huge hit. Shout out to No Laying Up for doing something very similar with their Wild World of Golf series.

I watched half a hole; don't remember which one.  Boring.  The course looks nice, but it's one I would never be able to play so what's the point of highlighting this course.

I like the idea of a match, but it has to move along.  One group to follow is difficult to keep the watchers' interest between shots.  Maybe if it were Phil/N.Korda vs. Bryson/J.Korda.

I liked the old Skins Game event and the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge.

bring this back... 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell's_Wonderful_World_of_Golf

a pre-recorded one-hour program on Sunday afternoons, and was notable for also including information about the host country for that week's show. It also included some of the conversations between the contestants between the shots. As such, it allowed the audience to feel they were part of a foursome traveling with the competitors and host, as opposed to being just a spectator in the gallery

 

either that or The Big Break - I'd much rather watch either of these. 

the only real "appeal" for me is watching other pro athletes try and play golf....and a lot of the times sucking (i.e. Brady in the first "The Match")

I didn’t watch. I think this style of a match has run its course. Maybe an LPGA team vs. PGA tour team or a couple amateur (unfortunately would need to be celebrity’s) in a best ball scramble vs a tour player. I don’t know something to mix it up. It’s nice because it donates to charity, but this format is quite boring.

I watched it...I also enjoyed it. Maybe not a popular opinion but personally I just like to watch golf, the banter and live interview type thing was an added entertainment to me. I do think that if it was pre recorded and shorter more people would be interested in it.

The Match was fun, mainly because of Phil and the beautiful course. I like these events once a year. But they need to get better personalities in addition to Phil for the future. Bryson really wasn't so great. Tiger would always be a draw. Get Michael Jordan and Tony Romo. Justin Thomas would probably be pretty good but he is still probably toxic right now, unfortunately. Rahm would probably be good. Or go co-ed- Phil and Tiger and the Korda sisters.
