  1. If this is the MOST famous tournament in 'ALL OF GOLF', why is there only 3 1/2 hours of TV golf on Saturday, when everyone will be home wanting to watch the tournament.

  2. What ever happened to allowing television viewers to relax and watch the Masters? Ian Baker-Finch and others talk incessantly. Even when a player is standing over their ball they continue jabbering on about nuance and detail as though we're taking lessons, not relaxing and watching golf on a Sunday afternoon. They love hearing themselves commentate far too much. Golf has an etiquette and a rhythm, i.e. when to talk, talk respectfully, quietly, and when not to talk at all. Part of what's beautiful (or what used to be beautiful) about watching golf on television is the quiet rhythm of the game and the sensitivity and professionalism of the commentators respecting the viewer as though they too were in the gallery. I ask the producers and directors of CBS golf coverage to reign these guys in when it comes to their incessant and unnecessary talking. Or simply listen to their leader Jim Nantz, who is the best of the best when it comes to golf commentary.

  3. oosterhuis and baker-finch and a couple others need to lay off the caffeine and check their ego and remember that the picture tells a better story than their incessant ramblings, particularly when they haven't the ability to shut-up while a player is hitting a shot- These guys need to learn from their colleagues and pros Jim Nantz, Bill Macatee and Verne Lundquist who are the best in the business.
