You probably didn’t know that the 2007 Golf season has begun. Why?
Well if you are like 99% of the avid golfers who read the sports section to find out what is going on in GOLF, you may have become nauseated and stopped reading due to the endless reports on football, basketball, hockey, NASCAR, Lacrosse, Bass Tournaments, and underwater basket weaving playoffs (OK, I threw that one in there just in case you are reading) before getting to page eleven where the 3” square report on the Mercedes-Benz Champions being played in Hawaii.
But, yes, the golf season has started and for 40 million golfers around the world who are really dedicated to the game, and only this game, it is really hard to find anything that is going on with the first tournament of the season.
If you are looking for the LPGA, that starts in two weeks, let me wish you luck. I am sure I will be back to provide you with my keen insight on the absurdity and lack of respect the print media has towards the women golfers.
OH, yes, you could trot over to the TV and pull up the Golf Channel and watch their NEW coverage of the PGA. I am sure you would be Wowed by the over produced and over dressed golf commentators that make you ask…Who are these people?…and Why are they on the Air…and What claim to fame do these people have in the world of Golf?
You will also probably die of boredom from them covering the same three holes over and over…which is probably why more people are not into golf since the only time they see golf is on TV and the TV serves no justice to the game by just covering three of the 18 holes.
So, you could go to the TV, but if you are depending on the Newspapers to provide you insight into why Aaron Oberholser was shown in the paper with only one score and the others showed two, well all I can say is…Good Luck.
I suggest you start from the back page of the sports section like I do and work forward…you will get to the golf before losing your breakfast from all of the team sports that the Newspapers feel are more important.
