My money is on Father Time.


This would have been relevant had it "gone down" 10 years ago. There is no way I'll watch. I'd be interested to hear who wins, in passing, but won't go out of my way to look for it. I'm sure I'll hear somebody on the radio mumble something about it, and that's good enough for me.


Now as for golf, Tiger had better win. He still moves the needle when he's in a tournament, and if Phil takes him out in some publicized head-to-head, then the fat lady has finished singing, changed into her sweats, had some snickerdoodles and a couple of Olde English 800's, and called an Uber to take her over to Alpha's place. Call it a night.

I'm not a big golf fan, but I'm a huge Tiger fan. I will watch this if it's not on rivalry weekend. I heard they may play it on Black Friday and if that is the case I will tune in.

I read that they wouldn't put it in Sunday because of the NFL.

It would make sense to have it Friday. Turkey Day and NFL on Thursday, errrybody off of work and stuffed on Friday (good day to normally play golf, if not watch it), then more football Saturday and Sunday.

Yeah...heard about the PPV as well. If it is anything more than $20, i doubt it reaches six-figure buys.

Dumb move. Maybe 15 years ago people would have paid. Now it’s a sideshow at best


It could still attract a decent audience if free.

just saw the price for PPV is $20.


I cant imagine it is going to draw all that many viewers even at that price

The whole concept of PPV golf doesn't work for me. It's a sport you "follow," not one you plan your day around and get ramped up to sit down and watch with friends.

I also just scrolled back up on my way out of the thread.


Does anyone else think that this poster is a wee bit biased? I mean, just take one glance at the thing, and tell me who is the dominant one of the two.
