And our members have been sharing their thoughts on Love’s decision in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Holy Moses: “DL3 not broadcasting for CBS anymore. He’s going to focus on his family and playing. Nice guy, but he should never have been on TV. CBS doesn’t know what good TV talent would be. Who’s the replacement?”
  • geesecougar2: “Phil should retire to the booth already. He’d be awesome. I also loved Freddie when he did guest appearances; maybe they can get him some part-time gigs.”
  • Matty01984: “Not a huge surprise that DL3 has packed it up. I am absolutely sure that he is a thoroughly decent bloke and likely has his pulse on the current life of a PGA Tour golfer more than anyone else in the commentary teams but it just never seemed a good fit. It never really seemed like he was comfortable or enjoying himself, although when stuck listening to CBS I am not sure that many of us are comfortable or enjoying themselves.”

    The only golf coverage watchable with the sound on is the European Tour. The US coverage covers the gamut from vaguely annoying to completely un-listenable. 1000 words when 10 would suffice, a constant stream of superlatives throughout every broadcast, ridiculous hyperbole. Clearly ever-more targeted at the absolute lowest-common-denominator, reinforced by expunging the better speakers like Kostis and McCord.

    Not to mention, 23 years of non-stop drooling over Tiger.

    The technology is available to allow the broadcast with optional talk or course-sound only (ballstrikes, crowd)… I’d go for the second, though a quality CD player is a fine alternative.

    Get rid of them all and watch golf with volume off. TV golf is SOOOO much better.

      One of the great mysteries: how do executives and managers who are supposed to know so much keep fouling up the works?

    I’m a big DLIII fan. The first time I listened to him on the course, it was obvious he didn’t belong there. His monotone voice, lack of enthusiasm, and reluctance to speak unless a question was presented to him made it painful to listen to. I admire the fact that he realized it sooner rather than later and did the right thing.
