TV broadcasts in 1.25 speed?

BB28403BB28403 Members Posts: 3,171 ✭✭
Has anyone else noticed a recent change with the Greenbrier and the Irish Open on Golf Channel?

They are speeding up the broadcasts to 1.25 instead of normal speed. If you look closely you can tell. The pros take a shot much faster than they do in real life. They look like they are on speed.



This is hard to watch.

    Something does look different. I am watching on a non HD TV and I thought that is what made it look different?

    Can't say that I've noticed that specifically on PGA Tour broadcasts but it would not surprise me. The networks are speeding up other shows to squeeze in more ads. If you watch old Seinfeld reruns they've sped those up and cut scenes out.

    I don’t know about that but I get annoyed seeing good shots that happened a few moments previous being passed off as live. Mught be what you are referring too. I did notice Thursday with Phil’s group they had a few shots out of order. I noticed on the green. If I remember Phil putted, then another guy putted and you could see Phil had not yet hit his putt. That was weird. Then too one of his partners sort of looked like Bubba. I was a little confused there at first. Haha. Is this what you mean? I read that to mean you think they have spead up the feed like playing a 33 on 45?

    No, it is actually faster. As if you hit the fast forward button. Watch how fast the ball rolls and how fast they walk from shot to shot.

    They look like Mall speed walkers, the crowd too walks very fast.

    I was just wondering that given that this is live broadcast how come the players are so quick to be on the greens after their tee shots on par threes. And now I'm getting paranoid looking at the pace on which they walk.

    You never knew when they cut to guys on the green, they all had just run (except for Westwood) to the green after hitting their approach shots? They are catching rides after their tee shots - you are confusing what you are seeing for the entire tournament being made a lot faster and having to be slowed down for TV - guys on the Euro Tour haven't walked for years.



    Speeding up live broadcast - lol.



    And yes, when I hit fast forward that ball rolls really fast!

    I've watched pretty much the whole Irish Open broadcast (haven't bothered with the Greenbrier) and haven't noticed anything. Would there be different broadcasts for different locations? The final groups in the 3rd round went round in well under 4 hours which I thought was good but didn't notice anything that looked faster than normal from a broadcast point of view.

    You don’t notice that they don’t take their time at all. These are pros, they take their time. Watch closely, pros do not hurry up like this.

    So you don’t notice it either huh?



    Watch how fast they do their waggles when they get up to the ball. See how fast it is?

    I haven't noticed anything like what ur talking about. Are you sure it's not because ur used to seeing Spieth, Day etc etc take and hour to read a 6 inch putt? All the guys I've seen during the Irish Open broadcast I get are just putting out like they should instead if marking 4 inch tap in's and lining them up and **** like that. It's great! I don't see swings any faster, or walking faster or balls rolling faster than they should or anything like that when I've been watching.

    I’m watching now and it seems normal at the moment. Perhaps it’s when it’s not live?

    Maybe they compress some parts.



    Oh well, just see if you guys ever notice it. It’s the most annoying thing ever for golf tv to be sped up.

    Yeah if ur not watching it live, it will be edited. Happens all the time. Player tees off then 10seconds later he's hitting his second. Yep, that happens a lot. But not the fast walking or the ball rolling faster or quicker waggles etc etc.

    Some of the spectators in the background are moving so fast it looks like they should be jogging. It only looks like that for some shots though, not everything.
  • BB28403BB28403 Members Posts: 3,171 ✭✭
    What I saw was definitely faster than normal life. You know how you can speed up a pod cast?

    They sped up the footage. Their really wasn’t any back and forth banter between the broadcasters like there is now. It was just one guy commenting . Almost like he dubbed over the sped up coverage .



    All I’m saying is watch for this kind of thing. Yesterday at the greenbrier I commented. “Geez bubba and the players are moving so fast!” They don’t move that fast when 100’s of thousands are on the line.

    Yeah what’s up with that? Golf spectators only jog when tiger is around so they can get a spot to see.

    I am watching it on a TV in the hospital, (my sons seizure medicine levels got to high) and on putts The ball looks like a blurry streak. Maybe they should check my levels. Lol.
  • I don't know about Greenbrier, but I've always thought European golf looked "off" because of the different frame rate- European broadcasts in 25 frames per second on America TVs set for 30 frames per second.
    Try playing golf w/ fewer than 10 clubs
    Chick Evans carried seven clubs
    when he won the 1916 U.S. Open.

    I love the doubters. It’s ok, I realize it is hard to believe. I have watched golf on tv for 20 years, first time I’ve ever noticed it.

    Well Kevin Na’s group did finish in under 5 hours so it must have been on fast-forward.

    This thread has potential. I wonder if people are also 20 pounds heavier if shown on tv at 1.25 normal speed?

    If TV makes you look 20 pounds heavier but appear to move 1.25 times faster then Duffner must be the world's skinniest tree sloth.
