- Rory's body language

- "watch this"...."Kuuuush"

- Sponsor CEO/VP interviews (this one is huge)

- Absence of really bad shots.

Watching tiger miss 12 putts inside 7 feet

Honestly tho (Tl;dr)

1)how every shot is so difficult around the greens. I wish they would be more realistic with there narrative

2)Doddy what do you see here?
(CAVEAT I like her, just hate when they say that phrase)

3) the pro tracer is not accurate enough on errant tee shots. Hard to tell when it's close to the rough. Lack of pro tracer approach shots

4) They should come up with better views. Experiment on camera angles. Maybe go old scHool NHL with the glowing puck (golf ball)

5) When they show the ball flying through the air and you have no idea where it is in relation to the course

6) Fairway to green approach shots are hard to gauge live. Wish there was a better way to watch it.

7) it may not work, but it would be interesting to experiment with. In the NFL they have game rewind that eliminates all of the BS and dead time. Watch the entire game after the fact in 30min


Would be cool if you could see how everyone or featured players (select players of your choice) plays there round

Example:

Hole 1: tiger, Rory have separate tee times but I want to see how they compare. Tiger tees of you see the footage. Rory tees off you see the footage. So on and so forth.

This continues for the entire round

It last happened in about 1995. The groups rarely catch up. Being put on the clock is the biggest joke in sports, worse than traveling in the NBA.

Not true at all. Here is an example from 2013.

https://www.pga.com/...in-second-round

And who said the goal was to catch up?   Do you understand what the PGA Tour rules are for slow play?

The penalty on Guan wasnít imposed by the PGA Tour or in a tour event. If you donít think being out on the clock is a joke then you arenít paying attention. Bryson and Cantlay were on the clock all day Sunday and still took an eternity to play. Being on the clock doesnít affect one thing about how a player plays in a tour event. I do think they take it a bit more seriously in a major where the tour isnít involved in the rules though and I should have clarified that.

I wish they would put the conditions out there more on shots. Like instead of just saying a player is hitting a 9 from 188 away, maybe have a little thing on screen with elevation above the green and a wind meter graphic on all shots

There are a myriad of articles written about slow play on the pga tour, numerous players and caddies express frustration at slow play in interviews and on social media. The last slow play penalty on an individual player in a tour event was in 1995. They did assess one in the team event last year I believe.  Players know slow play penalty strokes arenít going to be assessed.

The absolute gushing by Golf Channel over Shinnecock. You would think it is golf's version of Valhalla. I get that it's a great course, but please, keep it in perspective.

Some people don't appreciate the history of the game and that Shinnecock HIlls was one of the original 5 courses that founded the USGA.  I've been privileged to play a couple of the founding courses and there is a deep appreciation for walking in the footsteps of those who created the USGA and this great game.  There are few places in life where you can literally walk in history and experience what those before us have experienced.

The clubhouse at Shinny is the oldest man made structure in the western hemisphere. George Washington ate scrambled eggs there.

Use of yardage books.  Particularly the diagrams of greens when they read putts.  Slows down the game and shouldnít be necessary for pros.  Uncertainty is part of putting

I'm pretty sure that Valhalla is golf's version of Valhalla.

I agree with your comment, I just thought it was a funny choice of words, considering. :)

I've been watching the US open coverage and it seems like on every shot Azinger says "he knew when he hit it it was .............."
Also the same sound of a ball going in a hole every time someone makes a put. Why is that amplified ?

Nantz and generally annoucers talking i could seriously just hear the players mumbling to caddies and id enjoy it more then most of the commentary I hear. I sound really grouchy here but I seriously just dont care about the commentary most the time. I mean if i hear one more dude trying to inform us that Dj is long or Speith has had a hard time putting this year imma lose it.
