"These wedges he's designed have really paid off for him this week."

Did you catch when Johnny Miller said that during the final round telecast of the 2007 Deutsche Bank Championship after yet another of Phil Mickelson's miracle up and downs?

I couldn't help but think of our beloved old pal Stu Schneider, who not only would have been all over Example 492 of Johnny's blatant Callaway conflict of interest (I know, I know, he mentioned the Sasquatch after a Tiger drive...yada, yada).

But it should also be said that Stu might have noted the telecast as perhaps NBC's best of the year and a classic example of how good NBC's golf coverage can be when given a compelling finish and course.

Best coverage of the year? Not when excellent audio catching conversations between player and caddie (Bones and Phil as well as the rare exchange between Stevie and Tiger) was constantly talked over by Miller and company. Plus,when the action became compelling, they babbled on and on about which way putts would break! Please!

+1 on the above, plus NBC's use of SD cameras all over the place makes the telecast look absolutely horrible.

I had thought the TV folks' blatant hawking of equipment, whether it was in commercials or directly on telecasts, had been getting better in the last couple of years.

The best telecaster in golf: Renton Laidlaw. I am serious.
