Only about halfway through James Wiltshire's latest, but I'm loving his inside-the-ropes perspective. Of particular note, seeing Phil and DJ from this angle really highlights how good the pros putt. Seems like most angles on PGA Tour feeds wash out all the slopes and it just doesn't translate quite as well. We all know they're good, but some of these putts just look next-level.

 

EDIT: He also has a brief exchange with Mr. Short Game which is pretty cool.

And looking at some of those pins from the perspective of the players is WAY more impressive than typical TV coverage. I can't imagine the course is set up much different than a typical tour event, but seeing from the player's perspective was eye opening for me.

Agree. I wish the normal coverage would leave the views of approaches and pitch shots from the angle behind the player through the end of the shot. They always cut to the green midway.

After digesting this whole LIV Tour… I hate it.  It is exactly what golf does not need.  We don’t need louder, more pompous golf… all this does is open the door for the golf bro’s and their stupid antics on the course.

Shut it down.

I watched 90% of the three rounds on Youtube. I enjoyed the format and i hope the major tours will adapt it. What i did not like, was the regular mentioning about the price money and this live changers for the players by the commentators. I will watch the next tournament for sure.

The Wasted Management events planning group has probably been called in ahead of schedule to begin working on a counter-response.  Nobody's gonna just waltz in and take over their #1 position in pro golf. 

I'm as old school on protecting the "yesteryears" of golf as anyone, but this seems to be what the modern fan base wants, so go with the flow.  If this is LIV's format, I just won't attend their events - leaving them to those who like the party atmosphere. Certainly the PGA and their event hosts won't feel compelled to follow LIV's lead, right?

Right.  But this game needs to be protected from what “the fans” want…  everything doesn’t need to be a party all the time.

That hasn't worked very well for most all other pro sports.  I went to my one and only FIFA soccer game in Unna, Germany... those fans make the WM look like a knitting circle. 🙂

So i watched a bit here and there and ultimately ended up watching the PGA tour instead. My thoughts are as follows.

1- production better then expected, golf pretty meh as expected with the field.

2- I lost interest in the golf because i don't really care about millionaires playing for millions more. 

3- the team aspect i would like to see ok s bigger scale. That I've explained in a earlier post.

4- This one i admit is a me Problem, but for them to make min 1 million for events and only work 8 of 52 weeks a year is a cheap way out. I mean great the money is there, but they already make a living for playing a game..i don't feel bad for PGA guys to play 20-24 weeks a year and make the Same or more. I could go on but I won't.

I might be the minority… but I can’t stand being around a ton of stumbling drunks… that is what this product will produce.

+1. I don’t even like it remotely, e.g. I don’t watch the WM Phoenix Open because of the featured drunks. I’m sure many here saw highlights from last year where fans threw thousands of (semi) full cups and cans of beer all over #16 after holes in one? Many of the fans got drenched in beer in the process, not my idea of fun - ever. Disgusting to me, I guess I don’t “get it.”

My sister in law wen to the WM Open… she doesn’t even know a single golfers name.  Went for the beer I am assuming.  
 

I’ve often wondered why major events always have to be surrounded by alcohol sponsors?  Do the events suck that bad that you can’t enjoy them without a buzz?  
 

I don’t get it either, never will.

Our Canadian friends in Yuma went to the WM for R1 and had nothing good to say about it... particularly the $12 beer.  "One and done" was there summary.  And this was the first day mind you.

I must admit that the beer, hot pretzels, and foam ear plugs at the Dortmund game made it tolerable.  But seriously, I'm not sure any fans can top soccer fans for energy.

I popped onto YouTube a couple of times to see for myself. I’m not sure about the team concept. I thought it would interesting but all it did was put additional graphics next to players names. I later read that some of the teams, including the winning team were assembled prior to the draft so, the team idea with a draft seemed pointless. The announcers appeared to spend a bit of time talking about money. This seems to be the only point of the tour, make news for spending gobs of money on what appears to be a bunch of mediocre golfs. +24 was paid $120,000. The biggest names well down the leaderboard, Phil Mickleson and Kevin Na, T-33. I score it 4 🥱 As a counterpoint I’m watching the RBC Canadian Open. Rory is on fire, JT is charging and Justin Rose has caught a spark.

Unfortunately drunks are a factor of life, I stopped attending sports events because of the drunks. But the "Feed" on utube I've seen in New Zealand I've not seen any drunks, not watching all the hours available but have watched 4ish hours in total, I like the format I'm seeing here as it's ad free and good camera angles which is better than the PGA tour model in my opinion....

Yeah, to be clear, I have no idea what the LIV Tour has planned as it relates to "fan fun".  I think it was Alan who suggested they would be a drunk loud-fest? The limited amount of the first event I've watched seemed pretty average from that perspective. But any event with excessive alcohol consumption is a definite non-starter for me attending, and barely palatable viewing from the safety of my home. The scene following Sam Ryders ace was ugly and not something I care to see at any golf event.

Wonder how Forest Gump would deal with it, lol. I think the biggest problem is people don't like change, you know if it ain't broke don't fix it. Problem is for me it's so broken I stopped paying for the content, I've been watching utube video for 4-5 months now and there's so much out there to watch. "Ted-x" is people talking about what's on their mind, from a possible solution to finding it difficult to go to sleep which is laying on your back and tapping your legs for 4minutes, works for me. Some shocking things go on behind closed doors, the list of what's available online is only restricted by your imagination...
