This is sure to be all over the web, everywhere, but I had to post it anyway because it’s so damn funny.  I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez on many occasion.  He’s such a cool cat, full of so many stories.

During an appearance in Puerto Rico (his home) on Golf Channel’s Big Break NFL, Chi Chi’s attempt at the “break the glass” gig went terribly wrong.

An instant classic.

Feherty Joins Golf Channel

David Feherty joins Golf Channel broadcast crew

Some golf announcers suck, some don’t.  Some make the broadcast so much more enjoyable with their insights and humor that I look forward to the times when they are on.  David Feherty (pictured) is one of those broadcasters.

I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I’m glad David Feherty will be joining Golf Channel’s broadcast crew.  A new Feherty show on Golf Channel is also in the works.


TGC wants to mic up players? Is that a good idea?

So Golf Channel wants to mic up some PGA Tour players eh?  And by the way folks, being a former audio engineer for 25+ years I want to clarify that the correct spelling is “mic” and not “mike.”  “Mic” is short for “microphone” alright?

Is putting mics on the players that great of an idea?  Yes it may make the game more interesting, but will it backfire?

I’ve caught some great audio when live golf is on TV.  There was the time Fred Couples was in a playoff in some tournament and dumped a tee shot in a water hazard:

“God damn it I hate this f**king game.”

Another time Freddy (love the guy, don’t get me wrong ok?) walks up to a green and despite being just a few feet off the green, his ball is buried deep in grass which the grounds crew must have missed when they mowed.  A fan laughs, then Fred looks at him:

“Yeah that’s pretty f**king funny.”

How about the millions of F-bombs Tiger has dropped on the course?

Then there’s the Tiger Woods Buick Invitational fart incident last year.  Someone right next to a microphone lets a huge fart go, Tiger and his caddy Steve are laughing uncontrollably.  They thought perhaps it was David Feherty.  I had that video posted on YouTube, but TGC or CBS or whoever was doing the broadcast that day had it pulled.

On second thought, I like the idea!


Did Adam Barr Golf acquire Golf Channel’s email list?

My inbox just chimed…  Two emails from Adam Barr Golf.  I’ve been getting these spam emails from Adam Barr Golf the last while, on two different email addresses.   I never signed up for anything with this guy and haven’t ever been to his web site so I’m wondering how the &$*% I got on his email list.

A little research told me that earlier this year Barr’s contract with Golf Channel wasn’t renewed, so he’s on his own.  I don’t watch TGC enough to even know that the guy was gone honestly.  I’m only watching live golf these days so any other programming I just don’t have time to watch.

Obviously Barr has gotten two of my golf based emails from some list (TGC’s perhaps), because now I get spam emails from him all the time.

Update: I’ve unsubscribed today, on both the emails…
