Buoyed by the Presidents Cup and the viewer-loyal "Live From," Golf Channel averaged 155,000 in prime time and 152,000 viewers overall. Thursday and Friday's exclusive Presidents Cup coverage didn't reach the 1 million viewer point, but both appeared to do okay by drawing a .6 (778,000 average viewers Friday, 740k Thursday). Thanks to Son Of The Bronx for posting this and other cable ratings from the week, which are worth a look if you are a baseball fan as he includes MLB Network, currently providing some great playoff coverage but not getting nearly the numbers Golf Channel is drawing.
To make a great hole hazards need not be numerous. A few well-placed are quite sufficient to arouse an amount of lively interest and to call forth shots of which the best golfer may well be proud.
