Morning 'til last group leave the practice area range cams. No commentary, just the sounds and video of the range, short game area and practice green. No need to pay commentators. Just the video and audio feeds. I could watch that all day.

I would pay 5 dollars more to hear more of the crowd reaction and caddie-player conversations. I loved the Hoffman at Firestone exchange. Jim Nantz, shhhh!

I'd rather not hear more of the crowd. Too many idiots who are way louder than the crowd at whole.

Having Pro Tracer set up for all golfers on the range and being able to choose the player you want to watch would be cool. Maybe that's possible already?

I’d pay $100 a month if they would keep the featured group all the way to 18, instead of switching to featured holes.....we all know CBS would never allow this though

one of the best things the golf channel produced was "on the range"....IIRC Billy Kratzert hosted....of course TGC dropped one of the few shows I liked

the show was well done for the golf purists:   minimal fluff & raw honesty  on golf swings

A great idea.  The tour should set up live feed videos that people can select and choose which to watch.  The feeds would only show to those who pay.

The first time I attended a practice round at ANGC was in the days before the lottery for practice rounds.  We literally bough tickets at the gate and I got a good seat at the range and never left.

I'd pay for range and putting green coverage too.  I agree no commentators (hate when golf channel does that).  Seems protracer shouldn't be that hard to add as they have it on the range at the PGA Championship last year.

I think thats a great idea. Only thing is that there be an option to turn on or off the tracer, just like the closed captions. I like the Masters range, but its hardly ever on when I want to watch. If it were on the whole round that would be great.

Choose who played together. E.g. put Sergio, Tiger and Sabbatini together. Another group would be Andrew Loupe, Jason Day and JB Holmes.

Start betting on who would be left alive when the survivor(s) finish, although anyone over the age of 20 probably wouldn't live long enough to see the latter group finish.
