Good news it's US Open week at a intriguing venue ( soon to be ruined by Mike ' look at me ' Davis and his syphocants)

Bad new is FOX has the coverage with Joe Jo Buckster and the mumbling Zinger.

    Also be prepared for shot tracer on every shot and yardages to/over bunkers, and flyovers with current player ball position and other awesomeness.

    Enough screen graphics these days that you never need to hear any of these blowhards...on any channel, well, unless it's a euro event with their own announcers.

    I have gotten to like Paul a bit more, but Joe Buck is just brutal.....





    I heard a saying from Zinger at the Open last year, that I use on course now....

    Bring it on! I'm not a huge fan of Buck but I love Zinger's commentary.

    I was prepared for awfulness, which they delivered with Norman. But, I think Buck and Azinger do a good job. Faxon is also surprisingly good. He's often the best of the bunch.

    Norman is gone and that instantly made it a much better broadcast.

    Not to mention coverage starts at 11 I believe. Thank god! Still can't believe I have to wait until 2-3 PM to watch on Golf Channel for Thursday/Friday rounds.

    Agreed! Have always loved Zinger's commentary. Did a great job with the British the couple years he was a prt of that coverage.

    Lol at Berman ... he was/is beyond bad

    That lout made Zinger somewhat tolerable even as bad as he is



    Btw is Dottie Peppy in love with the jolly green giant Stuey 'I should not have a Claret jug' Sink ... every shot he hit at the Danny Thomas Memphis Belle glorified Web.com event this weekend was " right on line ( though 15 yds short in a bunker ) a " brilliant effort " ( a bunker shot from an uphill and perfect lie 15ft past the hole ) and the favorite, as Stuey went from a big lead to 43rd " he said he wasn't thinking about winning ( as he free falled down the leader board) just to keep improving " ... Lmao , hey Dot that's what the range is for!



    CBS should had taken this past week off , w/o Nance and McCord it's about as bad as Fox

    My guess is that the coverage will be better this year than it was last year. Incremental improvements are inevitable.

    Drones will also be flying around before the tournament starts as FOX captures aerial video to show during its coverage. FOX is also using 4K cameras on three holes.

    All in all, FOX will use 110 total cameras, 216 microphones, 36 miles of fiber optic cabling, and more than 62,000 man hours to put the broadcast together.





    Fox Sports brings out drones, augmented reality, shot tracers for U.S. Open broadcast

    Fox isn't as bad as listening to Nantz' oily schtick and used car salesman "charm". His constant sycophant routine with Sir Mumbles is ridiculous.

    What's wrong with Fox? They did a great job last year.
  • Darth PutterDarth Putter Members Posts: 5,393 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm ready for the endless parade of whining about the tv coverage.



    Until these crybabies get to watch whatever golfer they want, hit whatever shot they want, with whatever technical gizmo they want like shot tracer, with the correct amount of commentary from a chosen commentator, from whatever device they want for free and without commercials, no network coverage will be acceptable.
