Azinger tv commentary

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate (since I watch alot of tv golf both men’s and women’s) Paul Azinger’s respectful, insightful and poignant commentary.  It’s not unusual for him to respectfully disagree (without exactly saying so) with Hicks or others when it comes to the difficulty or ease of a particular shot at a particular time.  When a player from 60 yards out from an accessible pin hits it to 15 feet Azinger says- with disappointment in that outcome-“if you’re on the pga tour you’ve got to own that shot”- meaning that shot fell well short and giving the viewers a better sense of the expectations at that level.  When players like last week were shooting the lights out in a 7500 yard challenging course he reminds the viewers that this is a hard course.  He’s demonstrative and shows great passion for the game-and especially the moment as he exhibited during that words can’t describe it playoff between Cantlay and DeChambeau.

If I have to hear “you can sit a cup of water on that club face” when someone hits a simple bunker shot I might puke. I miss Johnny Miller. Badly. 

 

You could sit a cup of water on this reply

Yikes, I'll watch more closely for the problems you all point out, maybe I haven't been paying close enough attention.

Thanks for your replies.


 

The fact that you appreciate PA is actually a testament to you being

 

 

Far more content, tolerant, and easy going 

 

Than the rest of us! Who cringe at his every utterance to the extent that we wish there to be an announcement that the Earth 🌍 is about to be struck by a meteor. Rather than listen to him for a second longer ; )

If your idea of good commentary is that of a vapid and illiterate has-been, then good luck. (Your 8th grade English teacher will be mortified.)

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

I agree with 
@bscinstnct

 

most people on this forum, including myself, tend to be very cynical. 
 

if you actually enjoy Azinger then more power to you.

thank you straightshot 7!  I might be in the minority it sounds like but I do.  I've found that once you do or don't like something or someone we're hardwired to find supporting evidence for our initial assessment.  Changing that dynamic is very very difficult.  That's not my opinion, that's social science research by Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman.

GolfWRX tradition. Pile on the announcer threads. Can’t remember a single one where there anywhere close to as many positives as negatives. 

 

That's it.  I'm starting a Terry Gannon thread.
