Coverage is really pretty good as it includes low angle shots to show the contours of the course much better than usually seen on other networks.  It's really terrific seeing the real layout of the course and the undulations and even the crazy bunkers too.  And I'm liking the commentary of Strange, Azinger and especially Faxon.  Not sure what happened to Holly S but I'll bet she's regretting changing to Fox Sports.

not enough holly sonders..

What the hell happened to Holly?

She looks like a weather girl who got caught sleeping with the anchor in LA and has been banished to Peoria.

Too much make up, too much hair, dressed like a whore and standing like she is chained to that one spot so she doesn't miss her mark.

When her contract with Fox is up, how long until she's taking her clothes off for Heff?

She missed her chance at any dough for her noodz. She's too old and crusty now.

Hate hearing Joe Buck.

I didn't notice until my son said something.  There are red dots that blink and go away on the putting greens.  It is very annoying, and it isn't my TV.

Darren Clarke is terrible,

I find Clarke most enjoyable in the booth.
He seems like a natural for the gig to me.
He isn't a try hard like so many other ex TOUR pros in the booth.
He is a great improvement over the great white shark I feel.

Holly ? Less is better in so many ways with that one.
Imagine how many hours in front of a mirror that gal spends.
The "I was born to be in front of a camera " attitude shines way too bright in Miss Holly.

Joe Buck? I don't mind him doing baseball, but wish he was no where near the mic during golf broadcasts and NFL games.

Any coverage that doesn't have Faldo and Chamblee has to be an improvement.

Faldo is miles better than anyone on Fox.  Give me Faldo and Nance in the tower at 18, Feherty on course and Finchy thrown in somewhere along with Peter Kostis, and I'm a happy man.

Only if Kostis has a sock in his mouth and can't screw up people with his Koinca Kamera Krap.

I think the coverage is on par with the other channels. It's not like a football or hockey game with non stop action, so there's a lot of in between time they have to fill up.

Darren Clarke is great. Finally someone who knows what it's like to be on the course and playing.
I like that other Brit, the one who's rolling the balls on the greens. He's got great TV presence.

Don't miss Jonny "I shot the lowest round in a US open"  Miller or Jim "Hello Friends" Nance. Don't even get me started on Chamblee......

I do hate the Fox producers who are putting all those bird tweets on my back channels. You can even hear the birds from the aerial shots from the blimp!!!

Darren is great compared to Gary "he will not be happy with that shot Johnny" Koch.
After 20 years you would think he could come up with some new material.

If you don't like the announcers mute your TV. If that doesn't satisfy then simply turn off the TV. The constant whining about the announcers is unbecoming.
