I also would have liked to see some of the recovery shots from the tree hits. So many times I saw a tree hit and then it skipped ahead and didn't show how they got out (but I get many people don't want to see them struggle too badly or simply pitch out from the woods). It made them seem more relatable because they actually had some shanks, tree hits, badly missed putts etc that showed their vulnerabilities, but it also showed some amazing lines and skill shots. Overall nice to see
There were plenty of "save" shots shown. But I agree that a times, the missing 2nd shots was a bit jarring.

That, and the skipped holes, no doubt derived from editing essentially two final rounds into a single 2-hour production. Something was bound to get lost. Which isn't to fault them; decisions had to be made, and that's what lost out.

Having watched both broadcasts, I felt the ESPN2 broadcast just seemed better than the one CBS Sports did.
The fact that both the men's and women's events came down to the last few throws was probably the biggest reason.
The historic payout for the Tour Championship was also very compelling. Nate and Jerm mentioned the money a lot.
I felt they did a good job of covering Lisa Fajkus even though she was out of it after 5 holes.
Catrina's blowup on 17 was brutal.

I had to DVR it and watch it this afternoon. Something about that just seems wrong.

I DVR'd it, but started last night with about a half hour to go. Not sure if recordings count as views...

Does this include streamers at all? For example: I logged in to my parents' cable account via my Roku's ESPN app.

I wonder what ESPN's internal numbers say.
