If Tiger wins, then he’s on track for the Grand Slam. If someone else wins, then it’ll be all about how Tiger isn’t going to win the Grand Slam!!!
Do the American commentators/producers realise that there are others on the course as well – literally hundreds of professional golf players. Yet somehow they focus on Tiger walking down the fairway, or Tiger waiting patiently – instead of showing us some other guy on top of the leaderboard actually playing real golf strokes.
And another thing – do the American spectators realize how ridiculous (and uninformed) they sound when Tiger tees off from a 600 yard par 5 – and they shout “GET IN THE HOLE” ???
Give us a break – and take a cue from the commentators at the British Open, or the Ryder Cup whenever its played on European soil. Its about presenting an unbiased, accurate and representative picture of what is happening – it’s never just about one player!!!
