Good on Jason: Congrats to Jason Day for the nice win. Has a strong grip on OWGR #2 and within easy striking distance of the top spot.
Bad on NBC: The early round Saturday meant tape-delayed coverage. Not NBC’s fault. However on Sunday… I watched Man Utd deal a blow to Man City. It ends, and golf starts. Nice, I think, I’d kind of forgotten about golf, what with March Madness. Within 30 seconds, the announcer starts a speech about Tiger Woods. I turn it off. Later, I think to check the online leaderboard at PGATour.com. I see Jason needs to get up and down from 90 feet away. Good timing! I turn on NBC to watch the conclusion. The first thing out of the announcer’s mouth? Something about Tiger Woods. I turned it off and “watched” the play-by-play on the PGA Tour leaderboard. Sunday afternoon, Jason needs to get up and down for the win, and NBC goes into their Tiger shtick? I already quit watching Morning Drive and the Golf Central pre- and post-game. Add now to that list: the live coverage when NBC’s crew is handling the tournament. I’ll make exceptions for majors and other big tournaments, obviously, but for run-of-the-mill tournaments, I won’t bother turning on NBC.
