So, still semi addicted (or addlepated, if you will) to golf, I've been 'watching' the PGA Championship online.
The PGA of America website is where one can see some of what is happening, see shots of the individual eighteen holes, hear expert voices about the travails of this particular golf course. See the golfers maim themselves (my aforementioned favorite, Rory McIlroy) or at least maim their scores by ball drowning, sand burial, or poor reading of greens, and watch a few surge ahead, or mount a challenge, as they tend to say.
These guys just about never shut up. It's almost as bad as watching Gruden comment on NFL football, gut level painful for me.
So, I've checked out Golf.com's live blog, but some goodly part of the posts and responses from blog commenters have to do about Tiger Woods. I don't actually hate the guy, but I'm not t h a t interested and he is irrelevant for this particular tournament. Used to be.
What do I find today? The Guardian's Peter Murray has by far the best reporting of what is going on. Leagues better than anything else I've seen.
So, my new ploy will be to read the Guardian guy, put on the PGA site - but shut off my computer sound for the duration.
Oh, well, NFL football season is here soon..
I also won't have to hear myriad gripes about golf course designer, landscape architect Rees-Davies, reworking of the golf course to make it pro-worthy. A few courses being very hard sounds like a good thing to me, but I've a bias.
