Is it just me, or is Open coverage unbearable?

The ratings have spoken.  2nd worse ratings in US Open history.  Azinger, Buck and Faxon combined with a horribly boring venue = time for the USGA to rethink some things.  I would love to know the backgrounds of the decision makers of the USGA.  They clearly know very little about their respective audience.   Yes, the coverage was completely unbearable.

Yeah, lots of big names were absent from the leaderboard making the casual viewers tune out. Coupled with the fact that they had a very nice streaming presence I'm not surprised ratings were lower than usual. TV ratings can go behind the shed and get ol yellered anytime now.

The coverage was fine. I'm guessing that those who found it "unbearable" were either getting a root canal at the same time, or being attacked by a pack of pit bulls.
