God help me I rather enjoyed this one.  DVR a must as usual though.   The maddening technical gremlins involving the mics & IFBs (earpieces) that plagued the Manning/Brady match were sol

I really enjoyed this-  Good fun.   My takeaway was:   1.  Bryson tried to be the long-ball hero, and failed.   2.  Phil talks a lot, some of it good, some tedious. 

You dont have to watch if you dont want.

I don’t think this bothers Bruce at all, he wouldn’t play if offered anyway. 

I think he has showed that he is not very “personable” in front of the camera.  There are many phenomenal athletes who just do not speak or engage well in public settings or on tv.

 

Not knocking him or saying anything negative, but the other guys appear to have a little more sense of humor which makes them a little more “likable” when watching tv = commercials = ratings = $$$.

I personally love these. Having the greatest trash talker in the sport miked up for 5 hours is prime TV. I'd MUCH rather watch these than have to hear Brandel for any amount of time. 

 

Who watches Brandel?   Or any of these talking heads on a regular basis?

You clearly don't watch the Golf Channel. That guys face is seemingly on ever 10 seconds....

Can’t argue with that. Bruce is a Class A richardhead for sure.

This will be held at the Yellowstone Club, Moonlight Basin is right next to Big Sky Resort south of Bozeman.  Tom Brady is a member there, so are Justin Timberlake and Bill Gates, and I am sure there are others.  

 

They are pretty exclusive, and I am not sure if there are any local Montanans who are members there.  Here are some of the stories that emerge from this enclave.

Just good people trying to make the world a better place, I guess.

Not to nitpick here, but this "Match" is at Moonlight Basin, not Yellowstone Club. They aren't too far from each other, but they are completely different places. Moonlight is much less exclusive, anyone renting a house there can use the facilities (though I think golf is an extra fee). This is first hand experience, I rented a house there on a Big Sky ski trip with a group of guys a few years ago and we were all allowed to use the Moonlight Lodge as renters. It was a pretty ideal setup and price wasn't too bad... thanks to having 9 people in a 4 BR house.

 

I think you're right though in regards to Phil and Brady being members at Yellowstone Club. Per his instagram Poulter seems to spends lot of time at Yellowstone too.

I stand corrected. I knew Big Sky has the Palmer course, and the Yellowstone Club had a course. I hadn’t heard about the Nicklaus course at Moonlight. I did know it was a ski hill, just didn’t know about the golf course.  Hmmmm, another one to try. Thank you.

Not easy to get on, but I hear it is really fun. One day…

Pairing NFL stars with PGA Tour players... I don't know, it doesn't do it for me.  If I wanted to watch guys slice one into the woods I can visit the local muni.

 

I think it would be more interesting to watch 4 of the top golf pros battle it out.

It can have its moments 

 

“Chuck, take a suck of that”

 

"Shut your mouth, Chuck. Take a load of that medicine.”

It's still just watching hackers trash talk and one good shot doesn't offset that.

 

I'd still rather see four of the best PGA Tour players going head to head with live mics, but that's me.  I also don't like watching the pebble beach pro am for the same reason.  Who wants to see some B list back street boy spray one into the pacific... but whatever floats peoples boats.

If they want to get pros, they need some of the other guys. Like a boo weekly, jason bohn, tim herron type. 

 

Problem is, its too much "half measure" stuff. Golf fans don't want to watch Tom Brady hack it up, and non golf fans also don't want to watch him hack it up. I don't want to say turn it into BarStool sports, but do something else; ether a straight up match, or full crazy. Have Bill Burr be the announcer, play worst ball, have a port a potty they have to bank it off of before they can hole out, play a hole blindfolded.
