I will watch the majors... especially the Masters this upcoming week. It's my favorite major, and limited commercials are a serious bonus.
As for the rest - it's gotten too stale. The season never ends, there's golf on tv four days every single week except for a week or two in December. The commercial ads are relentless... the mindless drivel in the booth is much too tiresome. With exception of shot-tracer (which has yet to become standard week to week), there's very little in the way of innovative graphics to enhance the telecast interest for the viewer. When you think of just how much the game itself has changed over the past 20 years with all of the technology in the equipment, trackman, etc., then consider that the viewing quality of the televised product today has changed very little since then? Seriously... there's just a huge disconnect there. I'd even go a step further by suggesting that perhaps the quality of the telecasts were better back in the 80's and 90's, primarily because the commentating was far superior imo.
Then you add the fact that just about everyone is hitting the ball these ungodly distances today, leaving short-irons and wedges into what used to be considered enormously long par4's. Doesn't matter if you're in the fairway or the rough, not when you can gouge a wedge 150+ yards a mile high and have it land like a butterfly with sore feet to within 15 feet of the pin. There's no real challenge for most of these guys today outside of who can hole the most putts, and that's probably why most of the airtime is spent covering what happens on the greens - because it's basically turned into a putting contest.
And as far as the layouts... I can think of maybe 4-5 occasions per year that I'll tune in on Sunday to watch a final round of a non-major, simply because the layout is unique and much more interesting/challenging versus the old grip-and-rip on courses with very little shot-values to speak of. I might watch the Heritage at Harbour Town, Quail Hollow, maybe Colonial, The Memorial at Muirfield, and Riviera. A long hitter like DJ can win at any of those courses, granted, but he'll be required to factor in accuracy and approach angles into the greens. As for the rest of the non-major schedule? Meh.
And lastly... it is utter torture watching how slow just about all of these guys play. It wouldn't hurt the viewing product whatsoever if the tour started enforcing pace-of-play, but that ain't gonna happen.
But I will definitely be glued to the tv set this week for the Masters, Thursday through Sunday!
