  1. what kind of necklace is sergio garcia wearing in the first round of the masters tourney,thanks.

  2. Why is the Golf Channel not televising the matches – all they these guys do is talk – we don’t care! People want to watch players!!!!!!!! I remember when MTV used to play music too!!!

    Here’s a tip – Your viewers actually want to see the players hit the ball not listen to “has beens” comment on what they need to do to be success!

  3. Why is the Golf Channel called the Golf Channel? The biggest tournament of the year and all we get to watch on this channel are 3 guys (well not sure about one, he is wearing a suit and two earrings) talking about nothing. Why am I paying for this stupid channel? I can watch it free online. This channel should be called the Talk Channel. I will be calling my subsciber and asking for them to remove this channel. They only cover the players at the top of the leader board (unless its Tiger of course). Even though they never even mention that player the day before. So they are wasting my time with their “professional opinions” and coverage. Act like a Golf Channel and do something unusual, at least for the Golf Channel, and show some golf!

  4. Tiger should not disqualify. After being told on the 18th that no violation had taken place, he submitted his card. Had he assessed himself a 2 stroke penalty, he would have submitted an incorrect card. He had no choice.
