He'll need a swat team to take out CBS's fall line up commercial interspersed with occasional golf shots.

Wish that headline was a declarative rather than a question. At any rate, darn good header!

It's probably already written into a long-term contract so realistically Bevacqua couldn't change the commercial load even if he wanted to....may try to adopt the USGA model (6 mins per hour plus local spot) but the PGA would have to be braced to take less $$$$$, which it can certainly afford. he'll probably just go for more, more, more $$$ and let the quality suffer. Brit. Open not much better.

Havent seen golf for years, have tuned in to watch it but mostly whilst the golf is being played we get to look at the 3 blokes in the booth whilst they talk complete crap and tell us what they think will happen instead of letting us see what is actually happening. Then they go to one putt and off they go for another break and so it goes for at least four hours.

The only one big plus is at least I havent heard that bloke with the shouting voice anymore I think his name is Kelly T :)

Fantastic hire. What an absolute stud. After leading the PGA of America to greatness, I expect Pete to make a special guest appearance on Survivor: Palm Beach Gardens!

On a positive note, the West Virginia team featured in the "Just walk away coach" ESPN ad has lost their last 4 games in a row...Karma at its finest.
