    USPGA Golf 2017

    Well it all starts today at Quail Hollow. Anyone got any fancies? I've went with Matsuyama as my main bet with small stakes on Scott, Chappell and Bubba.

    Long off the tee is the key apparently.

    Wonder if Spieth will complete the set, would be some achievement at any age never mind his. I've not got any picks this time because mine always fail miserably.

    I'm not having a punt either so Koepka McIlroy or Rahm will win.

    It's on the beeb although as usual they're taking their time getting round to showing actual live play. Lots of slowmo action, ambient music and chat with boring old Ken Brown.

    Watched the coverage for about 30 minutes. Thinking of giving up on it already as it's as appalling as I expected it to be

    This coverage is absolutely awful. Can't stand that Maureen woman, mute it is. Never appreciated Sky Sports so much until now.

    Live coverage from America is available on a EIR 1 if you happen to have it
    Someone once told me that hard work wouldn't kill me.

    I thought: "Hell, why take the chance"!

    Watched the coverage last night. It was dreadful. Brown and Maureen Madill are so boring. And Peter Alliss should have retired years ago - his inane drivel, was interesting twenty years ago, but when compared to the Sky commentators is so out of touch.

    Watching the highlights on Sky Sports now with the usual Sky team. Far better!

    Never mind, that was the Open highlights. Was wondering why the course looked so linksy.

    I do worry at times.

    BBC coverage is very low-key. Odd somehow. Peter Alliss doesn't help and Diana Madill. It's like geriatrics commentating.

    A couple of years ago I would have much preferred the BBC coverage.

    They seem out of practice now though. They don't do enough of it to be as good as they used to be, it is stale and outdated and needs new ideas.

    It's not THAT bad though.

    Sky used to annoy me, but they've got better and better.

    This makes me appreciate Sky a wee bit more.
