Off-subject, but I'm gonna keep ranting until they produce a new commercial: The guy who kisses his Overspin Putter gives me the creeps.

Since the max streaming quality will be 720p .. they could have some on-course videographers using small steadicam rigs (merlin, glidecam, etc.) for some silky-smooth "follow cam" shots. Could also be used to get some really nice "worms eye" shots around the green.

Ya heard it here first ... PGA Tour Productions - gimme a job! lol.

Got the same question as M.

Also will CBS live stream the first 20 minutes when they are stuck showing a college basketball game that is 70 - 36 and both coaches are burning through their timeouts?
