  • Who is your favorite and least favorite golf commentators?

    I like:

    - Peter Alias
    - Nick Faldo/Azinger combo
    - Ken Venturi
    - Johnny Miller

    Dislike:

    Not a lot of dislikes, but sometimes Johnny Miller seems to stretch a little, but most of the time, he is right on the money. Generally, I find the announcers on the TGC for the European tours not as lively as I would expect given that they are from the British isles.

    I also find TGC's women's golf commentators more like cheer leaders to the golfers. In their minds, pretty much every women golfers 'work very hard on their game', yet their short games are atrocious in general relative to the men's.

    I like Peter Aliss the most probably. Nick Faldo is pretty good as well.

    Curtis Strange and Johnny Miller just has too much ego to commentate in my opinion.

        I like feherty, good sense of humor. Faldo is starting to grow on me.


        Dislike all golf channel announcers (except rich lerner) and pretty much any other announcer as they "won't shut up!". They fear dead space.
        Sometimes there is a critical shot or putt, and instead of describing it a bit, then going quiet while they prepare to swing, then do.

        They instead talk constantly filling every second. Kills suspense.

                Like Faldo and Feherety sometimes McCord (body bags and bikini waxes... that's just good stuff).

                Would rather listen to a baby cry then listen to Mr. State the obvious Ken Venturi (if I have to hear about that US open again I am going to cry like a baby. Also don't like Kraig Kann, stop trying to come up with witty sayings
                It takes alot of balls to play golf the way I do

                  Your right, forgot about McCord and I too loved his "I no longer cover the masters cuz I referred to bikini wax greens" comment.

                  P.S. I have to expect Kann to try being witty after his too cute parents gave him that witty name. Signed shark aka Craig (the way it's supposed to be spelt)
