Anyone have thoughts on The Golf Channel’s 2007 PGA Tour debut?
Here are a couple of mine:
1) I may be looking for faults, but the announcers seemed a bit tentative. In particular, the announcer in the bit at the beginning introducing TGC and the tournament stumbled quite a bit.
2) Production quality was fine.
3) My impression is that they didn’t use nearly as many flashy graphics as the networks. And I don’t think I missed them.
4) I was hoping that TGC would do something a little different … but they didn’t. I guess, however, that at this stage it would be difficult to re-imagine golf coverage.
5) It was funny to watch Rocco help Immelman find his lost ball. I dont’ think I’ve seen that from a television reporter before.
