View Full Version : Hyperbole in the announcer's box

May 9, 2010, 06:39 PM
Did anyone else get a little tired about all the talk about wonderful shots and great recoveries? Yes these guys are really good, but some shots they hit that the announcers described as great shots looked pretty average to me (i.e. being hit by a pro) .... I am thinking about Tim Clarke's over the trees from the fairway 180 to the green and Lee Westwood's yesterday at 18 with a 6 iron.

Then of course we didn't see it, but Lucas Glover barely reaching the "forward tees" on #2.....:)

Also noticed that the rough seemed pretty forgiving (i.e. always saw the ball sitting up).
