    No doubt on nance dialing back the syrup. When he made reference to Willets caddy wearing #89 same as Jacks caddy in ’86 I threw up in my mouth.
    I kinda like Frank Nobilo. Don’t know y just do.
    So glad I recorded both Saturday and Sunday’s rounds and was able to watch it without knowing the results. I must of saved myself 90 minutes fast forwarding thru Speith and Speith caddies posturing. When he’s on the leaderboard He’s gonna turn off the casual golf fan real fast with that crap.

    Mostly good points there, Czabe. However, gotta disagree about CBS being the best. Johnny and the boys at NBC are waaay better. They’ve even been able to get Feherty to reel it in a bit and do actual golf analysis. His humor is much more effective off the cuff, as opposed to the scripted clown bits that McCord does.

    Spieth would have been okay with a double. The one time he needed to step back and calm down was before he layed the sod over his drop. CBS: where was the Dan Forsman reference when he did the same thing. Golf Channel mentions it but gets the year wrong. (93, not 85). Do these guys not watch golf? Online announcers were great, Czabe. Carter Blackburn and Andrew Catalon, despite having similar voices are very good announcers. Carter has a big future ahead of him. Time for these other guys to retire (Nantz, I’m looking at you. Spend some time with your little Grand, er kids…). Also, I like the chemistry of two man crews on a few pairings. It works great. Maybe have a two man booth for 3-4 pairings, then have a couple of hole guys when necessary like Amen Corner or the par 5s.

    The only justification (and it’s not much) I can see for the way “they” played that hole is that he’d just had a couple of bad ones and they were trying not to panic and overreact — just play the hole as if nothing was wrong. But some panic would have been better than pretended overconfidence. And I haven’t even heard a guess as to what caused the Buick-sized divot on the second shot.
