1. Horrible! They show a golfer hitting a shot--no name

no current score, no nothing. Just freaking horrible. Just saw McIlroy hit 2 shots--have no idea what his score is currently.

2. Oh, US Open golf. I read the headline and thought they were ruining tennis

let em fuck up gold all the want. I don't want a blue streak following the tennis ball or highlighted lines around the serving box.

11. It's A Bummer

I am amazed at how good the experienced camera guys are at following the flight of that little ball from so far away.

These guys, so far, lack that in spades.

8. Worse still, the Fox affiliate here is supposed to show Big Bang at 7

 

Both of the usual backups (in the likely event I've seen the episode) crapped out on me too. The set clicked off at 7!

9. I hate that ball tracer thing

They pulled that crap in Hockey, too and almost made me stop watching the sport

I'm more bitter about the fact that I can't sell the US Open anymore on NBC. We used to get great ratings from it. Yesterday's FOX ratings were atrocious. Not sure I understand why they wanted to move the US Open to a channel that has no-one who knows a thing about golf. And that starts at the top with that crappy Fox Sports Net!

23. They are going for the Video Game effect

with the ball tracer, to try to get a new generation involved.

10. It keeps getting worse

 

these people are so bad it is painful. Fox has ruined my favorite golf event. The announcers don't know a good shot from a bad one. Tiger just played one off the hill exactly the way he wanted to and they thought he played it way right. Gawd I hate Fux.

still can't deal with the "faux woman". And I'll tell you what, that Jordan Speith is a great golfer on this course....he's going to figure out these greens and kill this thing on the weekend. JMHO.

that SHE had been selected one of golf's most beautiful people and that's why she wouldn't be in the next day. Vile.

17. that's it I tuned in for 5 minutes

 

and Joe Buck didn't know the difference between a slice and a hook. he thought bubba's pull was a slice until Flesch corrected him. God save us from Fox.

20. This is bascially not watchable.

The course combined with Fox coverage is the worst I have ever seen.

21. Don't know about the coverage but Robert Trent Jones Jr. says every time hears one of those

 

whiny little pissants moan about the course, he knows it's one of his best.

I'm almost surprised I haven't heard one of the little pricks say they hate it because the sand in the traps wasn't sifted properly.

I've played munis in TX that were ten times worse than that. Play the course, mates, and shut yer yaps. May the best man win.

22. That's all well and good but 2 things:

You can't see the ball on the greens (or at least it's difficult).

Joe Buck knows nothing about golf, yet here he is.

25. Little Joe ain't no Jack Buck that's for sure.

Yes, trying to figure out where the fuck the ball was drove me crazy. The broadcast had the fell of a bunch of amateurs that had no clue what the hell they were doing from the camera crews to the booth. CBS and ESPN put them to shame.

26. Hahahahahahahah Holly Sonders reassigned on faux live golf telecasts.....

Of all the awful aspects of Fox Sports’ debut in covering the U.S. Open, perhaps the worst was Holly Sonders, a former Golf Channel host tasked with interviewing players after their rounds, a gig that went about as well as Tiger Woods’ two rounds at Chambers Bay. She was woefully out of her element all week and topped off her championship by asking winner Jordan Spieth just two questions following his thrilling win, one of which was about whether he had packed another set of clothes for a potential Monday playoff. It was basically The Chris Farley Show in floral golf attire.

Sonders has been reassigned by Fox prior to this week’s U.S. Women’s Open, according to Aaron Kasinitz of pennlive.com. The reason for that reassignment/demotion is up for discussion, as long as you’re a Fox employee.


We’re not reassigning Holly because she did a bad job,” Fox’s coordinating producer Mark Loomis told Kasinitz. “I think Holly’s been great for us. It’s just that she can’t do both the postgame show and the interviews.”

That’s true, I guess, though no one believes Sonders was reassigned because she was needed on any postgame show. Fox seemed like it had dozens and dozens of on-air talent at the U.S. Open. There were obviously enough talking heads to sit on one of the network’s many sets after each round. No, Sonders was moved because Fox needed someone who knows how to do live interviews without them being a complete embarrassment by incorporating recently completed events into the questions.

“What I would tell Holly is that it was her first time doing an interview in that situation,” Loomis also said.

Hahaha I told you she was terrible, and now even faux agrees......
