It’s been a terrible year for major championship golf ratings

I’ve always been a golf guy, whether it be playing or watching.  That’s why it’s difficult to embrace the reality that the sport is at a difficult crossroads right now.  In the wake of Tiger Woods’ loss of form and constant battle with injuries, golf has suffered in the ratings department. Much of that is very predictable.  There’s a crossover, mainstream appeal with...

Erik Compton Living in the Now in 1st Trip to Open Championship

The 2014 U.S. Open will always be remembered for the astonishing domination of Martin Kaymer as he strolled to his second major title in a manner reminiscent of Tiger Woods. But it will also be remembered for the man who finished second — a golfer for whom even starting a major is an achievement close to a miracle. That man is Erik Compton, the underdog for whom everybody other...

Despite Ranking, No One Better Than Martin Kaymer Right Now

He won the PGA Championship and topped the world rankings. Martin Kaymer had it all, but then he made the inexplicable decision to rebuild his swing. As suddenly as he had risen to the peak of his profession, he lost his game. Completely.

US Open ratings tanked for NBC thanks to Martin Kaymer’s blowout

Human beings can be very fickle creatures.  That fickleness is quite evident when it comes to television ratings for professional golf, where we as a sporting public are much more interested in the few golfers that reach celebrity status than the game itself. When Tiger Woods was running roughshod over the US Open at Pebble Beach in and won by 15 strokes, it was hailed as one of...

What if Martin Kaymer is new face of golf? U.S. Open ratings don’t bode well

If Tiger Woods did what Martin Kaymer did last week, nobody would have said it was a boring U.S. Open. The same holds true for Rory McIlroy. Actually, both have done it, winning the Open by eight or more shots; Woods in 2000 and McIlroy in 2011. Those Opens still registered with viewers. Not so much for Kaymer’s victory yesterday at Pinehurst. NBC only did a 3.3 overnight rating...
