    I watched most of the first three and tried to watch yesterday's latest. There just wasn't much reason. Bryson, Brady and Rodgers were pretty boring. Phil "trying" to be Phil was kind of like Feherety replicating himself these days. The 777 yard downhill 8th turned out to be a snoozer other than Rodgers. He was the only one to find the fairway. I made it through about 10 or 11 holes and quit. For me the highlight was watching Phil rapid fire 10 footers in for charity. Maybe they should change it up and bring back the Skins. I'm sure the tour guys would jump at the chance to win 100-200K!!!!! Yeah, right.

    Impossibly long. Five hours for a foursome to play 15 holes?

    You can't blame the players for the pace of play, even if Bryson dawdles too much for a hit-and-giggle and Phil tries to amaze with his endless un-amazing utterances.

    I watched the entire damned thing because I had money on it. It was fun enough for a Tuesday afternoon, but by the end of it I felt like I was just watching Tom Brady get a golf lesson from Phil. The one club hole is where it about lost me. That was rough.

    I lost my bet, but Rogers stepped up and won the thing for his team overall. Good on him for showing up to play. Bryson even came off is pretty likeable too.

    If they do it again, maybe break away from the big sports stars and go with a different type of celebrity. Let's get some dudes/ladies that aren't professional athletes.

    Gorgeous, even if a few holes are big head-scratchers. Haven't played it but did play Yellowstone Club across the way. Stunning. My wife made a comment about moving there then I showed her weather data for winter. lol

    The event needs real personalities. Phil is so phaux. Brady is a robot. When he said stuff Rodgers was pretty good. Bryson never will be a bubbler.

    I couldn’t find it on Saturday scrolling through for future events so no. I guess I’m glad I didn’t. :confused:

    The show lacked personality. Phil was trying too hard and the others had none. Find a couple of buds that are ready to take shots at each other. For ams, just find someone who'll be interesting on the course. I enjoyed Barkley last time plus it seemed there was more interaction all around. Fix it or dump it.

    There was too much outside chatter and cutaways. Mic the players and turn them loose. If needed color comes from the commentators then put them into the proceedings. But I think there's also too much expectation of all this smack talk going down and it being interesting, and if it plays out to true life form, no one gives a shit about what we might find hilarious in our regular groupings so why would this be different? And good digs come from shared knowledge and experience.

    Use handicaps, play a four-ball, too.

    plus endless commercial breaks. I swear the break between hole 9-10 making the turn was a half hour. that's when I tuned out. Had the Dodger game, Argentina vs Colombia also going at the same time. was easy to change the channel

    Delayed watched (if you call a finger on the FF button 50+% of the time watching). Knew it might have some issues so DVRed it. So very wise. The best part was the absolutely breathtaking course. Hey, did Aaron seem like he was mumbling or soft talking? My favorite part was watching Rodgers beat Brady. You know it is the only time he ever will. :) You could see Rodgers over-exuberance when he putted in the win. Like an "I finally got ya moment" Sorry Aaron wrong ball, wrong field, wrong season, wrong year.
    From the girl who had Rodgers as her avatar here for years, now just another pussy :)

    Aaron: Cut your hair.

    Glad to hear it. But I wouldn't watch something like that if you paid me. I did hear that it sounded like Rodgers softened his tone about not playing for the Packers this year. I guess they've called his bluff. I mean, what's he going to do, retire and forfeit several million dollars? He's definitely not getting the gig on Jeopardy.

    Had it on the DVR, but when it came time to watch it, just deleted. Another made for TV piece of junk.
