Once you’ve watched a few things in HD, it is really hard to go back and watch the blurry, grainy and dark images of standard TV. Watching The Masters last year in HD was awesome. Even the sound of the drives and putts is so much better.
Now The Golf Channel (or Tiger Golf Channel as some call it) is broadcasting in HD. This is a very good thing. I can’t wait to see some of the great courses the PGA TOUR plays in HD.
GOLF CHANNEL HD and its standard definition channel will simulcast more than 100 tournaments in 2009 featuring many of the world’s best players like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Lorena Ochoa. These players, among other stars, will appear in GOLF CHANNEL’s HD coverage of full-round PGA TOUR events plus all early round and weekend lead-in action from spectacular venues, such as the TPC at Sawgrass and Pebble Beach Golf Links. HD coverage also will include some of the biggest events in golf like the McDonald’s LPGA Championship, as well as The Presidents Cup and Solheim Cup – two continental clashes that have become major events on the golf landscape. And viewers will travel around the world with a generous slate of European PGA Tour events in HD.
