That's a little strong. Steve Dodge isn't committing mass fraud.

He does make big promises that he cannot fully deliver on. He does overestimate what he is capable of.

Apparently YouTube was having concurrent issues during the FPO coverage.

If the MPO coverage is good then everyone will forget this.

Absolutely. I said "reminds me of" not "this is just like".

I truly believe Steve's issues come from overestimating what he can do and are not malicious in intent.

It's like the perfect storm of the Dunning-Kruger Effect and the Peter Principle.

Something I don't understand: why not be shooting live coverage of at least everyone's hole 1 tee shots all day? We have lots of great players playing all day and you have to wait for the last card(s) to go live? Gives everyone a chance to catch a peak of everyone in the tourney that day.

It'd be cool, but that's a lot of work for camera operators and everyone else involved in production. Having a few hours in between gives them all a much needed break.

It also gives the DGPT some time to figure hopefully figure out their technical difficulties.

It would be more work, but it doesn't need to be the same guy all day just to get one camera on hole 1 filming tee shots. It just seems weird that they want to have some focus on live coverage but they are only showing the card most people will watch later on edited coverage.

That would require a hard wired camera, which isn't possible at most if not all course locations. Otherwise you're burning batteries and cell signal ($) for not a lot of gain.
