Yeah I can't stand someone who has been inside the ropes and can offer insights based on experience and having been there.

I really enjoy him, for the same reasons as some of the above.

He's been there, inside the ropes.  For years.  On the bag of a HoF'er.  Who talked to him constantly about strategy and shots.

I can't think of a much better background.

Turns out I like his voice and style too - seems to get to the point quickly and clearly.

He was describing a shot the other day, "it's a cut 6 iron from 193 and looks so pretty" - and his voice was butter.  Nice.

I was thinking the other day that I really don't know how sportscasters do it.  Spend your entire work day talking and speculating about their given sport.  I would be bored out of my mind honestly.

Dubogey sucks!!  Every post is a rant and just here to sell.  Gotta go.

End Rant


See.  It's just one man's opinion.  Doesn't mean I'm right or even worth paying attention to.  

Totally off base here on Bones though.  It's not like he's Chris Berman whose skills as a golf commentator are un-paralleled.

Just lol. Seriously?  Him becoming the on course commentator was the best thing since McCord being removed from The Masters telecast.

Walter: Tell me Bobby, why do you play this game?
Bobby: I play because I love it.
Walter: Well I play for the money. I have to win. That is why every time we face each other I will always beat you.

It's not for you, or me for that matter.  Most of those guys have to find an outlet for their obsession and the lucky ones get to make a living out of it. Bones isn't talking to Phil for the 5 hour round, he's talking to us instead.

Thumbs down on the OP.
