What GolfWRX members love about watching golf on TV

Published

on

While there’s plenty of negativity about golf coverage in general, and plenty of specific criticisms are valid, televised golf can be pretty entertaining.

GolfWRX forum member MilkyButterCuts was inspired to start a thread titled “Things is love about watching modern day professional golf.” And while we’ll agree to disagree on the value of Gary McCord’s contributions, the thread is turning into an interesting catalogue of the best elements of the ever-developing (not quickly enough for some, sure) medium of televised golf.

MilkyButterCuts likes

1. Nick Faldo & David Feherty
2. How competitive every tournament has been, we rarely see blowouts anymore. Playoffs the past 4 weeks.
3. Spieth yelling “JORDAN!!” after every other shot

Christosterone adds

Shot tracer
Super slow Mo….except the “Konica Minolta BizHub” part
Putting camera angles
Featured groups on the app

HoosierMizuno says

DVR – haven’t sat through live golf in a long time. skip the commercials and the ceo interview and you’ll cut the broadcast in half easily
Rope47 says

I love that most every tournament has a chance to go to a playoff. I love watching two or three guys fighting down the stretch and making clutch shots under pressure. I actually like it better when I don’t have a favorite and I can purely enjoy it.

Lookylookitzadam adds

1. Mic’d up conversations between caddie and player
2. Toptracer
3. Feherty’s commentary
4. Rahm’s emotions

14 players disqualified from mini-tour event for playing from the wrong tees

Published

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, there is still golf being played in some regions of the US in mini-tour events, and Tuesday during an event on the Outlaw Tour saw a significant rules controversy.

Per Ryan French (Twitter’s Monday Q Info), 14 players during round one of the Outlaw Tour’s Verrado Founders Championship were DQ’d from the event after playing from the wrong set of tees on one hole.

Despite the 14-men playing from a distance longer than they should have, there is no dispensation from the rule despite it being clear there was no intent to gain an advantage on their competitors.

Following the opening round, tournament director Jesse Burghart released a statement on Facebook where he defiantly stuck by his decision to disqualify the 14 players.

“I stand by my decision to uphold the integrity of the game and the Rules of Golf…Penalty for breach of rules is disqualification. It’s very black and white and one of the most important rules to follow.

I’ve heard all the name calling and peanut gallery remarks. At the end of the day we are supposed to be professional golfers. Ultimately it’s your decision to be one or not.

Sheriff Out”

@acaseofthegolf1

One of the players DQ’d because of the error was James Feutz who backed the Tour’s decision on his social media, but explained how he feels some compensation should be given “considering how many people made the same mistake and the current world situation.”
