Bryson Dechambeau should call for the removal of Paul Azinger....the guy is a pure idiot and does not represent PGA golf in any form of a good way.

PGA Color commentators: Most were anywhere from quasi successful to very successful former PGA touring golfers.

Stating facts: What they are paid to do.

Stating opinions: Also what they are paid to do. Often based on their own playing experiences as PGA golfers. Often purposely meant to stir up interest.

I followed many of today's color guys entire PGA careers. But most seem to be better in their own mind than they actually were on the course. Even if they were very good on the course, they were not challenging Nicklaus and Woods majors totals. But you could get the impression by listening to a few of them that they were.

To me the most obnoxious ones are the ones who act like cheerleaders and marketing agents for their still playing buddies. Guess I never realized that no one in the world could have just hit that 9I on the green from that spot in the rough on a weekly basis?

But if too many viewers dislike their opinions too often? They probably become former commentators is the bottom line.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

I watch no other sport with such a high amount of cringe worthy chatter.

Azinger is almost as bad as some of the ones they use for LPGA coverage....Azinger has not missed a fairway or a putt sense being behind the mike.

So I presume you missed out on the recently concluded Olympic swimming and gymnastics Jim?

QUOTED  Paul Azinger....the guy is a pure idiot


I don't know about that. Just rewatched some of it and maybe what ur talkin about is this quote: "He takes down big bully bryson." A lil bit of alliteration there. I mean, it's true. Bryson overpowers everybody off the tee so you can maybe jocularly call him a bully. In general, I like Zinger much better than Faldo and I'll take the nbc team over the tired cbs team every day of the week. Faldo just stammers and Nance is tired as is Pepper. Ian Baker Smith is vanilla. Give me Justin Leonard and Bones Mackay. Zinger steps out and throws some haymakers--it's entertaining.

I swear you're all hearing a different Paul Azinger than I am. All I ever hear him doing is gushing about how brave and bold today's players are and how scared he'd be to take on any kind of challenge whatsoever.

QUOTED  Where's Johnny Miller when we need him?

He's at Silverado Resort in Napa getting ready for Week One of the upcoming season of the PGA Tour with new sponsor Fortinet. September 16-19th

I would have rewound to listened to this comment from the 'zing again if I had DVR, it went something like this;

Almost all great putters have the majority of their weight on one foot making the stroke. Many front foot, some back, some have their weight equally balanced.

So insightful and simultaneously confusing that I wrote about it two days after the telecast.
