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...

No tears, no drama, but a lot of class: NBC, ESPN sign off on final U.S. Open

NBC deserved better. The golf Gods should have conspired to give the network something on the order of another Payne Stewart winning putt or a Tiger-Rocco playoff for its final U.S. Open. Instead, Johnny Miller and company were subjected to four days of Martin Kaymer, who sucked all the drama out of the tournament with a Tiger-like performance.
