Not a Tiger fan and also dislike the all Tiger all the time coverage and the pudd pounding that guys like Notah etc do......BUT , like it or not Tiger moves the needle big time , that is irrefutable . They added over 10,000 parking spaces to the Valspar after Tiger announced and there were record crowds, and have been for every event he's teed it up in this year. Heard the Valspar had the highest tv viewer numbers of any PGA event since the 2015 Masters ( i think it was). More spectators, more viewers means more money for the event, for charities in sponsorship......thats all great and things that a struggling golf industry needs. I guess we have to either endure or not watch.
Id prefer that they tone it down but their hype is simply advertising . Id also prefer to see golfers who are relevant to,the goings on. Tiger has been past 2 weeks but he certainly wasnt at Rivierra where he finished almost dead last, so please dont show him when hes hacking it about.
