Lanny Watkins really does not like Phil

I don't think I've ever heard Lanny say more than 10 words before flipping channels.  How can anyone watch geezer golf?  Sr. Tour is some pretty boring sheeeet, even with Phil playing.  So by that standard, Lanny is much better than Zinger.

Pretty sure each and everyone of those 'Geezers' would smoke your a** on the course 🤣

Can't stand listening to him so I just don't. Playing wise he had that don't blink/phone booth swing that was seriously effective and if I had to pick a partner for pro/am etc. back then he would of been very high up on the list.

It's NOT personal.  Lanny is critical of most golfers, it's his style, and it's always been that way.

"How can anyone watch geezer golf?"

 

Three reasons - but I can't speak for anyone else - one being relational, another being technical, and the third, biological, I guess.

 

1. My wife is very OK with it, given if I am watching golf then I am probably not losing golf balls by playing golf.

 

2. I have a TV and remember the channel number for golf. 

 

3. My eyeglasses still do a pretty good job.

ONLY if said opinion contains something of substance. This is a pet peeve of mine so apologies for the rant, but this idea that something is refreshing just because it is different seems to so often glide right over whether or not said thing is actually worth a damn. IMO there is nothing LESS refreshing than yet another talking head throwing out yet another contrarian opinion and then getting praise for "telling it like it is". No one ever seems to actually expound upon what "it" is, and instead default to this idea that being a dissenting voice is inherently positive. 

Lanny is obnoxious and sounds like the inside of his mouth is perpetually swollen. End rant. 😅

It was refreshing to read your opinion/rant.

Yeah, I’m with ya there.  Would never want to watch players better than me to see how it’s done.   Would rather watch the hacks I play with.😂

Great trolling by the OP and people here have sucked it up. OP never gave any examples of why Lanny is bad in his eye and has not responded to his own thread with a justification to his original post. Y'all got played. Again. Especially after this thread was his first post in 8 months. Well done WRX.

Lanny Watkins could actually be the actual person referred to by the OP.

 

Maybe he didn't mean Lanny Wadkins the 21 time PGA Tour winner including the 1977 PGA Championship.

Saying Phil would shoot better scores by playing a touch more conservatively on certain holes is not ripping on Phil. 

 

I think Phil himself has admitted that he probably could have scored better here or there being a bit more conservative, but at the same time I think he has maintained that's just not who he is.

 

Despite this, saying being more conservative on certain holes is such an uninsightful, dumb and overused generalization that it's pointless to say and even more pointless to call out anyone on. And further stating that Phil's would shoot better scores if he was not so bold in certain situations in just non verifiable nonsense. You might more correctly state that he would shoot a better score on some holes but worse on others... either way in the end it's pretty hard to suppose his overall scores for a season would be better.

OP original post was Lanny on Phil. My comment is the Senior telecast in general. 
The senior tour has developed because the population has aged with the great players we watched 20 years ago, and why not? 
It’s great to see the names of players I watched years ago and learned from. 
It’s great golf. A little more relaxed. I don’t think it’s boring. At least it’s golf content. 
Today I’m watching Euros at Valdarama. Stunning course.

Most of the time I would prefer the hacks, much more entertaining. I don't fault anyone who likes watching the fake golf, knocking yourselves out, but it's a really boring product.  I'm sure it's quite a blast for the guys playing.  Phil said as much, just fire away.  Tees up, pins in the middle...time to relive the glory of old.  Good for them, but I'm out.
