I was over commenting on a post made by golfblogger and I decided I might as well just post the comment here as a post. Hey, then someone could post a comment on my post which was a comment on another post. I’m making myself dizzy.

The Golf Channel’s Sony Open Coverage

There’s a certain female player who golfblogger commented on. He said TGC didn’t give this player much air time. I’m watching the replay of round two on my DVR and that particular player is at +12. She ended up finishing the tournament 14 strokes off the cut.

My comments about this:

Maybe TGC is doing what I’ve suggested and what I’m now doing: Covering what is relevant, entertaining and interesting. Her missing yet another men’s cut for the zillionth time is none of the above. I for one may be boycotting even mentioning this person’s name in my blog until she WINS something… a game of checkers, tick-tac-toe, monopoly, a coin toss..anything.

Fake an injury

Oh how about announcing the wrist injury before the tournament? There’s an excuse for her before the thing even started. When a football player fumbles it’s always best to limp off the field like he’s injured. When a baseball player can’t run down a pop fly, he acts like he pulled a hammie. In short: If you suck, fake an injury.

    There is going to come a time, and I think it was about 5 months ago, when that certain female player will need to just say “stop this merry-go-round and let me off” and actually take control of her schedule and make better decisions about the path she needs to take. She has the opportunity to do one thing extremely well, or be average at three things. When will she have that moment of clarity though is anyone’s guess. I do think she’s listening to everything everyone says. Maybe she’s just doing it all until she gets to college and gets away from the everyday contact with the family – that kind of independence might do her some good.

    I thought TGC showed TOO much of a certain golfer, at 12-14 shots back this person should have received ZERO coverage, like the others players 10-12-14 strokes off the pace.
