Just tuned in to the live coverage for the first time since Vegas. I see they haven't really improved. Don't know what's going on with all this camera wobble. Maybe these are the same videographers that shot the Blair Witch Project.

It's hole 5 and they haven't shown a graphic with the scores yet. I think PB is leading this card? Not sure, but I don't want to check UDiscLive because apparently it's a little ahead of the live video and I don't want to spoil it.

The wobble is two things. The first you can't do much about and that's motion. Absent having static shots to cut away to (the booth, commercials, leaderboards, other stationary cameras, etc), we're going to be "taken along" with cameras as they change positions with the players. But even once the cameras are in position, the nature of the sport kinda requires some panning and camera movement of that type. Good camera operators can do that smoothly most of the time.

The bigger problem comes with the second factor...abuse of the zoom. When you're zoomed, it exacerbates any subtle move by the camera operator. If you're zoomed tightly enough, the camera operator's heartbeat can create shake in an otherwise stationary shot. Let alone when you're zoomed then try to pan to follow the flight of the disc. That's where you get the motion sickness inducing views.

Just tuned in for a couple holes and the zooming is absolutely the problem. Way too tight on the player at the tee and the catch cam is too tight and loses the disc way too easily, especially in these tight woods. It's such an easy fix. I hope they make it.

Looking at FPO on UDisc , there's a foursome at the bottom with no scoring shown for the day. Is UDisc input is done by volunteers?

They should put tape on the zoom button. I'm only kind of kidding.

Are there some MPO cards not keeping live scores? Lame.
