nothing new here or groundbreaking…but since i’ve been here it has really made me sensitive to all the non sense on the golf channel…can’t
they bring back big 3 golf? now that was a show.
i had the golf channel on in the background last nite and they had some kind of of “news from the range” thing going on at the phoenix open
sponsored by big trash. all the conversation was about what player is changing what. so and so changing clubs, so and so changing coaches.
and this is not players that are in slumps they are talking about, these are guys who are coming off their best years ever. it was beyond rediculous.
one analyst kept harping that if they are not changing or “improving” they are falling behind. really? i would think the time that it takes to get used
to new things would be better spent improving simple things, like trying to figure out how to shoot 68 ever single time i tee it up. last time
i checked 68 averaged out over the year puts you pretty high up on the money list. if i was a pga pro i would go practice all week somewhere else
and show up thursday morning, get away from all the hoopla. 2 refreshing things on the telecast, aaron olberhoser playing with whatever clubs he
likes because he has no club deal (although they would not say what he was playing…) and gary player’s son doing a swing critique on a top player trying
to improve his swing (snedecker), he simply said “he needs to work on getting his upper body moving through the ball batter, his upper body is stopping at impact!” guess the apple does not fall far from that tree…
i’ve been in sales for quite some time and corporate america is no different, every year the executive team decides you need the latest and greatest selling theory shoved down your throat by some person who got tired of selling or was never very good at it and in the end you move away from what really made you
succesful in the first place. in a bit of irony, one of these training programs is actually plastered all over several pga pros shirts…
