Don't get me wrong, I love watching the pros play golf, majors as well as the more obscure events on the Euro tour however there are a few things that bug me, here's a couple to get started..
Watching Jim Furyk make a load of shadow swings after he hits a bad shot or putt. Not sure why this annoys me so much but it really does!
Patrick Reeds trousers (pants). Think this is fair enough to be fair.
Johnny Miller and his endless conquest to find a way to bring up his 63 at Oakmont.
The nonstop ED commercials. Beginning to think there must be something wrong with me since my plumbing still seems to work just fine as I close in on 60 next year.
Does this qualify as a humble brag?
Just like to add Jordan Spieths obsessive compulsive towel disorder to the list...
When announcers say hitting a certain shot or a certain putt takes courage. Hitting a golf ball doesn't require bravery.
The three shots and then 6-minute commercial break on every CBS telecast except the Masters.
The basically useless interviews with a big screen TV between the player and the interviewer showing stats or a scorecard that they just told us about.
Showing any putt under 5 feet on an average tour event.
bringing up the volume of the player-caddie conversation and then the announcer talking during the entire thing.
And . . . all the stupid things fans yell just to get heard on TV. Why do it? Everyone watching thinks you are an idiot. If some do, why open your trap and remove all doubt. Just SHUT UP!
When did the green become the 'putting surface'?
The announcer just reading the latest (dull / meaningless) statistic that has been on the screen for the last 30 seconds
Jim Nantz spewing every bit of trivia about everything while pretending it's somehow relevant to current events.
Anyone who says anything like "we hit 6 iron into 12 today".
There's no "we", it's just you, your caddy just lugs the bag and tries to stay sober enough to show up the next morning.
Adam Scott's look of surprise and disbelief every time he misses a 4-footer.
