The obvious place to have it would have been 13, to see them try and snap around the trees, but of the protracers I did see, none were on 13. Which was odd. Should be on every single tee box in my opinion.

 

I would agree with this completely. I would love to see the various lines that these guys are taking around that corner. I would also guess that as said before, it has some to do with "messing up" the pristine sight lines you get without them by limiting the number that you will ever see.

Personally I would have every shot shown with protracer (except putts) as it really adds to the enjoyment in my view.

I totally agree, and I can't believe that it hasn't been done yet. It would generate more viewers to golf, and more golfers (and non golfers) than not want to see it. Doesn't make sense.

 

Putting it on every shot may not be a cheap proposition...

I'd be okay with them going from 4 minutes of ad time to 5 minutes to get it done. Gotta make sacrifices I suppose.

all they would have to do is have the ProTracer in white or something light colored so to not be obtrusive. You'd think Augusta National would want to be on the cutting edge of technologuy. A gray trajectory line would suffice.

 

Golf telecasts these days suck because all we can see is a nice swing, zoom in on the ball in flight and as the ball hits the green - we might as well be listening to in on the radio and looking at a few screen shots of the player. If networks want to increase viewership, give us a reason to watch -- GIVE US SOME PROTRACER!! Telecasts are very stale these days.

Pro tracer is mostly used on NBC broadcasts, maybe it was CBS said no to Pro Tracer instead of ANGC. Since there are others that say Sky Sports had Pro Tracer on 18, this may be the answer.

 

If I'm not mistaken, ANGC does not allow Trackman or any other swing/ball flight analyzer on their practice range.

 

The reason you don't see Pro Tracer on fairway shots is that there has to be a radar unit placed behind the hitting area to catch the shot. It would be difficult to have someone constantly moving the radar in and out of the fairway and between each person in the group depending on where each ball was hit.

I'd like to start with more than 4 hours of Saturday coverage. The leaders teed off 10-15 minutes before the CBS coverage even came on. Really? We can't even watch the freaking leaders tee off? Let alone the other final groups?

 

The US Open will be on all day on Saturday and for a good 8 hours or so Thursday and Friday. We get half of that for the Masters.

I had coverage every day starting around 9:45 through the end of the telecast. Free on Masters.com.

It would of been great if they had more of it. Some of those tee shots would look awesome with protracer.

Wasn't Spieth using a Track man at the range when his driver cracked and he was testing out new ones?
