I think the last time i watched live golf from my desk on a monday was the 2008 Open.

Peter Kostis just did play-by-play commentary of Woods marking his golf ball on the 8th green. Pathetic coverage.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDRM
Anyone explain the late start?

It looks like Adam Hadwin WD'ed because monday qualifying at Phoenix is more important than his last place finish.

If they started earlier, this probably could have been avoided?
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterM
If Woods has been trained to focus better than any other person on earth, according to Earl... he should be able to hold onto the damned club after something annoys him. Such a surprise that when he hits one well after being distracted he can hold onto the club and pose.

Nice etiquette, jackass.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterTim
Saying "please" and "thank you" to all of the dozens of morons in the crowd who don't know where to stand IS good etiquette.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterHawkeye
M, the reason for the late start is because of CBS. Tour should not have agreed to it.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDRM
DRM, why not?
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
I can't see how Hadwin would have been able to finish at San Diego and then get to Phoenix to try to four-spot unless he would have been added to the back of the field. Generally, Tour members are added to the front of the field. Darkness would be a potential issue. So he WDs and gets no money to chase a spot in the next tournament? You would think there would be a Tour rule disallowing a WD for that purpose.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterGolden Bell
So Tiger is stuck waiting on a backed up tee. Now we can get to other golfers....Gliders! WTF
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMarker81
Is there a story on Hadwin saying this is in fact what he did? I'm not seeing anything to that effect. I do see that he was 9-over through 15 holes in his 4th round. Last year last place paid about $11,000.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Golf Channel/CBS is doing the "early'' part of the coverage without a "host''--I guess Jim Nantz doesn't do GC, unless he has to...I expect he'll open the show on CBS....funny he isn't missed much, altho more airtime for McCord is a def. minus.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMedia maven
JFTR, Hadwin's tee-time on Monday in Phoenix is 1.45pm....same for Cuz Lancaster, Luke List, Tag Ridings and Casey Wittenberg, all of whom made the cut at Torrey. If Casey can stay in the top-10 he will get into Phoenix anyway.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Media, Nantz left for the Super Bowl....
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Does anyone care that Jim Nantz has left the course?
The group ahead of Tiger is slowwwwwww....Put them on the clock Mark Russell!
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterHilltop
Beautiful golf course. Slow play. Watching the "These Guys Are Good" promos does not make me want to get an antenna for the old teevee back at the ranch. Did you know that DJ can swim? And dunk? Phil must be thinking about his taxes when he is on the green. Tiger could play in with his 9-iron and win. We've seen this movie before. Wonder what the ratings will be?
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterKLG
Yes, I care very much that Nantz is gone. It's really good news, actually.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdsl
dsl -- great one!

They really are sloooow....I went to the post office and dropped off a few letters and then went to Rite-Aid for a gallon of milk and only missed one hole!! At the 3 hour mark Tiger will have only completed 8 holes by my count...
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Not exactly finishing in style....

Unless and until he gets rid of those left to left tee shots, you can forget about the Masters.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterSari
No Nantz on CBS golf. New saying: "Goodbye, friends."

Meanwhile, number of CBS affiliates either skipping golf or moving it to a digital subchannel is up to 14, including Orlando, Fort Myers, Charleston, Savannah. Golf country.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterGolden Bell
Yeah I searched my Comcast cable box high and low and the golf is not on here in CT. On regular CBS the local news is on and the CBS Sports station is showing some worthless Super Bowl stuff.

Makes you wonder why they didn't start today at first light to allow others to get to PHX for the Monday qualifier.
Add my name to the list complaining about Compton Fritsch and Marino. When the group in front of you takes 3:10 to play 10 holes, and you finish a full par-5 behind them, you are the problem. I don't think Marino was much of the problem either.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered Commenterpenneraj
The pace of pay is criminal; a full par 5 behind!!
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterSari
Shameful indeed. The Marino group was awfully slow yesterday already. The most incredible thing was early today when Tiger hit his drive way off and had to direct the spectators for what felt like ten minutes. When he finally hit his shot, the group ahead was still nowhere close to being finished on the green
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRyan
Marino is soooo slow, took over 2 minutes in between his par and bogey putt ton 17
Cannot pull for slow players. Sorry Compton you have a great story, I really hate that I have to pull against you....but I just started today.
Totally agree re Erik Compton - I know his whole story and it does not excuse the self-centered behavior evidenced in his slow play. Why, why why is nothing ever done. And that's a fraction of what I'm thinking.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMrs. Mashie
I would love to see 'officially' that the Monday late start was due to CBS wanting it. Because that 100% BS to screw over players who needed to try monday qualifying, just to get Tiger on CBS's screen in a better time slot. (and for the record, can anyone recall a Monday finish that did not start as soon as possible?)

Hadwin officially WD due to a "sore wrist", but he indeed played the Monday qualifying in Phoenix.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered CommenterM
I'm still baffled at why they delayed the start and then didn't broadcast it on any of the CBS stations here in Connecticut. I had to watch it online. CBS had local news at 5pm, CBS Sports had worthless Super Bowl hype, and GC had some gal with a giant chest working on the simulator. Zero nada zilch golf from Torrey. I can understand if the regular CBS affiliate decided they didn't want to show it, but CBS Sports should have had it on. And I figure this is the reason why they didn't start it at first light this morning. Makes no sense.
Hadwin better be fined -- that's outrageous. I wonder if they can penalize him by denying him Monday qualifiers for awhile.

With Finchem in charge, though, I expect he'll get a slap on his "sore" wrist.
01.28.2013 | Unregistered Commenter3foot1
Hadwin was 9-over through 15 holes in his fourth round, guess he couldn't take any more. Looks like he should have stayed at Torrey and collected his $11 grand because he hung up a 79 today to finish DFL of all the people who actually posted a score. 67 made it, 4 guys shot 68 and playoff tomorrow for 2 spots.....guess they need to change the term to "3 spot". I'm sure Adam will be hearing from Ponte Vedra.

I offered free t-shirts to some potential attendees.

Front: Save Balboa Park Golf

Back: Stop the Cement Mixers

There were no takers. (No, chilly temps weren't the reason.)
