LPGA Morgan Pressel as commentator


Recommended Posts

I'm sure she is a sweet girl but TO ME her voice is rather annoying. Kind of a high pitch squeal that wears on you. Also if the LPGA keeps her as a commentator she is going to be another Jim Nantz. Not going to criticize anyone or say anything negative, just cater to the players. As bad as Lexie was putting ( as always ) she would do nothing but make excuses. Even when specifically asked by Rich Lerner about Lexie's bad putting she just made excuses for her.

Morgan is just fine in my book.   She's very knowledgeable and doesn't seem to say too many stupid things.

I'm a fan.

 

Me, too. (Her pitch is really only just slightly above the squeak of Nicklaus.) 😉

Knowledge of the Rules is part of the applied skill set which a player must use to play a round of competitive golf.

I actually like Morgan as a commentator. She's way better than Paige who giggles far, far too much.

For the most part I like Morgan just fine.  She's knowledgeable and pretty articulate.  I don't expect her to be too hard on her fellow players, especially those who are friends.  Any criticism I have would be minor nits - the production crew needs to watch her volume and every once in a while she just plain talks too much.  The latter is a common affliction among commentators.

 

In general I like everyone that works the LPGA ... though I would like someone in Paige's ear to yell at her to not giggle so much.

Morgan's voice has always been annoying to me, even as a player.  But I have no problem with "what" she says.  It's Karen Stupples I cannot stand.....she just will not shut up, just like Nick Faldo!

Agree.

Then there's GIGGLES Paige....so Morgan is the best of 3 evils...lol.

 

Many don't like Tom Abbott but I like him because he will say some funny stuff during a BORING coverage.

But he's TONED it down because in our PC world....EVERYONE IS OFFENDED.😆

I like Morgan as a commentator - but then I’m biased as she has been  my favorite golfer since Annika and then Lorena retired.  (No pressure on her there!😄).  We often have to mute Paige at our house. I really enjoy Tom Abbott and his wry, subtle humor.  Also really like Kay and Foltsy as on course commentators, but I often wish he would keep more distance from the golfers so he could speak up louder.  I hope we will still see Judy Rankin on some broadcasts this year, but I think Morgan would be a good replacement.  (I don’t know what the deal is with the wardrobe!)

Art first I was totally put off by her voice. But voices can be changed - UK premier Thatcher did it very successfully. Somehow Morgan's voice doesn't get to me so much - maybe familiarity but I also think they've been playing around with microphones (tube mics?) and equalisation.

 

I've become a fan - she's interesting and really knows the game. Good addition to the team.

Agree with the above post.  Her voice was so irritating at first but they seemed to have coached her to speak a little different or done some magic to make it a bit better.  It’s still not great though.

She's well dressed for the PTA bake sale today.

 

That's funny but true, she dresses like a grandmother.

 

Like a few here have said she is very knowledgeable on the game. if they truly are coaching her on her voice I wish her success on that. But she stills needs to be honest and able to criticize when needed.

I think she's good. She has a tendency to drone on too long about a topic but it's not too bad. She has great insights and is a good addition to the team.

 

I think she was very gentle about Lexi's putting meltdown because they're neighbors, as she mentioned during the broadcast.

WITB will be comprised from below:

Driver: Sim Max, or TM M5, or Ping G410 Plus, or Mizuno JPX 900, all 10.5*

5 Wood: TM M1 

7 Wood: Callaway Steelhead XR Heavenwood

Hybrid: Mizuno JPX 850 3H or Mizuno CLK 4H

Irons: Ping i500 5-PW, Mizuno MP-H5 3 iron or Mizuno MP-18 MB 4-PW
Wedges: Gauge Design D Milled 52* & 56*, or TM MG2 52*, Gauge Design TCG Wedge 56*
Putter: SC Select Newport 2.6, or Xenon Kurve Hotrod, or SC Futura 5S, or SC Del Mar, or Odyssey Works V-Line CS
Ball: Snell MTB Black or Srixon Q-Star Tour
