Golf has embraced interpersonal drama as of late.  I don't see what it adds to the game at all.

Unfortunately, that type of things does seem to draw people into it. There are only so many people interested in watching machines generally hitting flawless shots. Add in a personal element to it and all of a sudden it is no longer two boring guys ruining a good walk, it is now a personal battle between them. It is the only way to explain all the reality shows presently dominating the entertainment streams.

I expect pro-wrestling style promos any day now.

Professional Golf is a "sport" now - it's not just a bunch of white guys with a beer gut (I'm looking at you, John Daly) anymore. These guys nowadays are into their diets and weights and can pound a golf ball 350 yards.

This shiat is all so petty, it's farking hilarious.  Not hilarious enough to make me watch golf, but pretty hilarious nonetheless.

Who would have thought golfers named Brooks Koepka and Bryson Dechambeau would be petty little prima donnas?  Nostradamus himself couldn't have predicted that one.  jeeeeesus

Azinger is a former major winner and is now a commentator of the "old school", where people are polite and respectful (generally). Koepka is a current pro who brings the "asshole jock" attitude to golf. DeChambeau has got serious obsessive/compulsive issues that he's chosen to define him as a player. All of that is a side show that gets eyeballs.

I love watching golf (and am watching it now) because I learn how to play smart golf, using course management strategies the pros use, that Joe Sixpack never things about. (Grip it and Rip it.)

Don't like golf, don't watch it. I like it.

who'd have though that pro golfers named Brooks and Bryson would be uptight douches? whatever happened to blue collar guys like Charles Howell III?

baorao whatever happened to blue collar guys like Charles Howell III?

He's still around.  Twenty years and $40 million in earnings.  Nice work if you can stick around a long time and make cuts.

I can understand people enjoying playing golf but I for the life of my don't understand how you can watch it. To each their own though.

With Tiger seemingly out of the picture, at least competitively, golf has a serious talent problem. Today's biggest names are on-the-whole the best players ever, but by god are they an unlikeable lot.

Yeah, but the problem is, getting drawn in implies you're going to (shudder) watch golf.  I mean, come on. There are limits.
