I smile every time somebody judges the quality of a tournament based on the average American watching tv 🙂

I completely agree. Unless you're a network executive, to even concern yourself with such mundane thoughts, is positively inane.

He's definitely not a feel player.  I don't know how many of those guys out there are though.  He may be the pinnacle of analytical however.

 

Might be a spin-off for a new thread.  Current player best described as a feel player and historically (cap it at last 30 years) who was the most? 

 Current feel players ? Jordan, Phil  , Bubba

 

   Going back- had to be Trevino

Yea. I had a slight tick start about then.  Wait till they see this comeback.  Oh boy.  Titanium ankle and knee.  He will gain 30 yards. 

 

I'm starting to think he had the accident on purpose, this way he will qualify for a TUE for basically anything.  If cyclists can get TUE's for asthma conditions that are life-threatening,  Woods will be able to have robotic vertebrae and rocket launcher shoulders.

@imakaveli

Exactly guys.  If you use @tsecor metric that a good tournament is defined by TV ratings, then the final round of The Masters has been in steady or declining greatness for decades.🤣

 

I didn't do the exact correlation analysis, but the spikes were often related to a popular player like Tiger or Phil winning or close battle.  Though Tiger winning isn't a guarantee to a big Sunday viewership... such as 2001 vs 2002 both won by Tiger yet dramatically lower rating in 2002.  Or Tigers comeback win in 2019, still lower than previous years.  

 

Basically this tells me that TV ratings me Jack S...T when it comes to the quality of a tournament.

He also said he’s only interested in Thomas or Spieth are at or near the lead

“Our longtime friend” but his name was not mentioned at least by courtesy. There shouldn’t be any excuse for this.

Can't use the name or likeness of Hideki for advertising as he is not paid by Cameron/Titleist. Happens all the time in golf.

I thought it was a pretty decent tournament. Glad to see Matsuyama win - just as I was glad to see Adam Scott win several years back. It's always cool to see someone do something for the first time. 

 

The play on the course was obviously sketchy. So many struggling at inopportune times. 

 

Honestly, the thing that stood out to me the most was all of brown patches on the greens. Can't say I've ever seen that at Augusta before. 

At a regular course, even a very good one, those greens would have caused the members to be chasing down the supt.

I asked the OP for his source on ratings numbers and he did not respond. That may well be because the ratings generally don't come out until tomorrow or Wednesday. I would add that a typical Masters draws numbers roughly twice as large as the Valero Texas Open numbers he  pointed to.

OMG!  Are you all talking about the sleeve of golf balls the caddy next to Gary P. is holding? 

What utter nonsense.  Those balls are crap.
