How much better would golf coverage be with "pro-tracer" of every tee shot (and possibly all full shots). This clip shows the contrast between seeing where the ball goes (and perhaps more importantly the shot shape) and just seeing a swing. Even with HD its hard to see the ball not far off the club.

Aussie, you and I are in complete agreement.... I've appreciated the "pro-tracer" for years. You can anticipate the network -- for any tournament -- is using it on a particular shot because of the wide angle behind the tee and you KNOW you're going to get more out of it.

If -- at the U.S. Open next year -- the FOX network does one thing right, it will be to use a tracer on EVERY tee shot and perhaps even those from the fairway. Makes watching TV golf a LOT more enjoyable.

So strong and confident through the ball. His form and power ... of the last three feet until impact ... is inspiring.
BenSeattle.. agreed, I think they should also use it on the greens.
