The PGA has gotten unwatchable. The Euro and Australian tours are a better show.

This is where a PVR comes in real handy. Each hour will have at least 20 minutes of commercials. So if golf starts at 4pm and runs till 6pm, I'll record it and begin watching at 4:40pm, that way I scan through all the commercials and still finish up at 6pm.

Well you could PVR the next "All Tiger" day on TGC, strap yourself in a chair, and chant Zen mantras for 24 hrs.

I like the tips. Especially the one guy whose name I forget. But I agree on the whole it's a tough watch. Although seeing leaders implode is fun.

You must be new to golf watching; one weekend does not history make.
