I enjoy it, I like how it then allows us to see more of the hole, as opposed to open sky or a quick rush.

do you like money, yes or no? Never heard somebody say they didn't like the shot tracer, seems like a rhetorical question

They use it so much it's weird when someone hits a shot and it's NOT there. Kind of like going to a grocery store and the doors don't automatically open. It used to be, "wow cool!" to now, "WTF!"

There was people who hated the 10 yard line in football (when it came out) so I would imagine you would have at least a few doubters.

I remember when they tried a similar thing in hockey so the blurry eyed could follow the puck.
Didnt last.

It makes watching so much more enjoyable. I love to see how they shape their shots, and the hooks and slices that show they're still human too.

Fox is by FAR the best broadcast in golf.

1.  Their Cameras are fantastic (ABC/ESPN's are HORRIBLE the master looked like crap this year)
2.  Holly Sonders

I rest my case

probably because you have to pay money for the technology? the return on investment probably isn't there for Fox...how many people do you think are watching the US Open exclusively because they offer shot tracer?

There it is!  I knew we could find one.  He would rather have no clue the result of the shot, just focus on the finish and hope the golfer leans or screams 'go' or something.  To know is annoying.

Unless the tee ball is in trouble, I'd rather not watch it at all and pick up the play with the approach.
