U.S. Senior Open on Fox Improves Upon Last Week’s Debut

Though it aired with considerably less fanfare than the U.S. Open, the U.S. Senior Open was a second chance of sorts for Fox. Last weekend, the 50-and-over major championship aired on the Fox family of networks. It was a good opportunity for Joe Buck, Greg Norman, and company, to improve upon last week’s Fox golf debut. Since only a week has passed since the U.S. Open, not everything...

There Are 9 Easy Ways Fox Can Fix U.S. Open Golf Coverage for 2016

The USGA did Fox no favors by making Chambers Bay one of the least enjoyable courses in U.S. Open history for the competitors to play, or the viewers—at home and on the course—to watch. The vistas, namely Puget Sound and the surrounding areas, are beautiful, but the yellow, brown and mustard pallet of the actual course played terribly on television. In many ways, Fox did the...

American Sports Broadcasting has Brutally Low Standards

Brian “boom goes the dynamite” Collins is pretty much standard American Sports Broadcasting fodder nowadays Brian “boom goes the dynamite” Collins was just a college kid when his video made the rounds on the internet.  If you’ve never seen it, the poor guy fumbles awkwardly through a sports segment for Ball State University’s student-run newscast back in 2005.  The...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Fox’s U.S. Open coverage

After what seemed weeks of hype, Fox’s inaugural excursion at the U.S. Open has come and gone. This being Fox Sports Group’s first time airing the nation’s golf championship, there were a lot of eyeballs viewing the event. And every time Fox didn’t make the cut or failed to meet expectations, the reactions on social media were quick, swift and cutting. Some were fair, others...

The Golf King is Dead. Long Live the King(s).

The saddest thing to watch at the 115th U.S. Open was not Dustin Johnson gagging away two chances at glory from 12 feet away, though even those of us who had money riding on a Jordan Spieth victory couldn’t help but feel for the guy who continues to build a reputation as one of the more notorious back-nine Sunday chokers in majors. Johnson is on his way to a very special wing...

Jason Day's Round 3 one of greatest in U.S. Open history

Courage. It’s not a word that usually goes hand in hand with golf, but what I saw Saturday at Chambers Bay was the definition of courage.  We all watched Friday when Jason Day walked down towards the ninth green, his final hole of the day, and suddenly dropped to the ground. I thought he tripped and twisted his ankle, but when I saw the replay I realized he just stopped in his...

U.S. Open: Fox will need thick skin to handle reaction from finicky golf viewers

An excerpt from my latest Chicago Tribune column: ****** A prediction on Fox Sports’ coverage of its first U.S. Open: It won’t matter if Fox produces the best Open ever. Golf fans still will complain about a lack of quality. They always complain. This isn’t to say that Fox’s debut on major championship golf will be a disaster, although it could be. Rather, it is about the...

Low expectations as Fox gets a crack at Tiger

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) New to golf broadcasting, Fox Sports also gets its first crack at Tiger Woods. And the two primary voices at the U.S. Open, including Greg Norman, don't have high expectations for him at Chambers Bay. That's not alarming. Woods now has gone seven years since he last won a major. Due to injuries and yet another change in coaches, he has gone 18 months...

What to watch for at the US Open

And to think only 15 years ago, gravel was being mined from a pit that is now a public course hosting the 115th U.S. Open. The star attraction of this championship is Chambers Bay, the Robert Trent Jones Jr. design with wild changes in elevation, stunning views of Puget Sound and - get this - no rough around the greens. In fact, there will be markings so that players are clear when...

REVIEW: The Golf Club Collector’s Edition

The Golf Club is a video game created by Canadian based developer HB Studios and has been out for almost a year now.

TV golf coverage will benefit from Greg Norman's candor

I can hardly contain my excitement. The first week of May is going to bring one of the biggest events in the history of televised sports. No, it’s not the long-awaited Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Even though I’m a huge boxing fan, I’m talking about something much bigger and more important: the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball golf tournament. Before you put me in a straight jacket and...

Greg Norman Feels Sorry For Tiger Woods

It has been a very rough few years for Tiger Woods, who hasn’t won a major tournament since the 2008 U.S. Open. Ever since that happened, Woods has gone through a myriad of problems on and off the course. It has caused one of the greatest players of all time to actually begin to feel sorry for what has happened to Woods. [lead image via Getty Images Sports / Bradley Kanaris] Greg...

Greg Norman feels 'sorry' for Tiger Woods

  Greg Norman just can’t help but feel sorry for Tiger Woods.   It’s unlikely that Woods, a 14-time major winner will add to this legendary resume this weekend at the Masters where he’ll enter the final round Sunday eight strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth. Barring a miracle, Woods will remain shut out at golf’s biggest tournaments since winning the 2008 U...

Remembering 1996 Masters, Norman has advice for Spieth

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Nineteen years ago, Greg Norman found himself in a situation similar to what Jordan Spieth is facing at the 2015 Masters. Spieth, 21, was still in diapers when Norman, 41, opened his 16th Masters with a 9-under 63 and followed up with a solid 3-under 69 to take a four-shot lead into the weekend. Norman’s 132 was one shot shy of the 36-hole scoring record set by...

Reading the tea leaves from the West Coast Swing

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) The Florida swing is the unofficial start of the road to the Masters, now just 44 days away and counting. Greg Norman made it feel that way a few decades ago. The Shark would play the Tournament of Champions in January and then not show up again until Florida, usually at Doral. He was No. 1 in the world a good chunk of that time, which only added to...

Michael Jordan Has A Unique Solution To Battling Slow Play

Michael Jordan is widely considered the GOAT whenever you talk about not just basketball players, but athletes in general. And when you’re considered as such, you grow accustomed to things going your way.  Unfortunately for MJ, that apparently hasn’t been the case for him when it comes to slow play at the Bear’s Club in Florida.

Reviews for Fox debut on golf: ‘Rough, but not without promising signs’

I caught a few minutes of Fox Sports’ debut on golf Saturday with Greg Norman’s Franklin Templeton Shootout. Frankly, it’s hard to make much of an assessment with a silly season event. It almost had the feel of a NFL preseason game, with no real juice or drama. My initial impressions were that the telecast seemed OK. I like Joe Buck and am quite sure he can be a good driver...

A little hyperbole from “The Shark” perhaps?
