amen

i would imagine that there are a bunch of pros that would jump at the chance to do commentary for an up and coming media channel. it's free exposure to the DG fanbase. whomever they could get would be better than sub-800 rated guys that really can't speak to the nuances of shot selection and execution, let alone knowing simple things like the difference between weak side and strong side putts when a lefty is putting. i drives me crazy every time Zach Melton or Nathan Queen or someone misses a putt left side and the comment is "weak side spit out for Melton".

i feel a little bad complaining about a free product on youtube. they guys are doing hard work and the video portion is good. but the whole package could be so much better.

Gatekeeper did some no-commentary videos late last year, for example at GMC. Just the sounds of nature, and the card's chatter. Frankly I enjoyed those a lot more, and would be completely fine with them using that approach all year.

Gatekeeper or GK Productions is even upping CCDG, they have more replay stuff on the post production card they follow as well as better sound of the play.

I'm not pointing any fingers, but if the ambient audio from the throw cam and the catch cam are at different levels, it's distracting. There's a one-pass button to normalize that in a lot of editing suites. Just sayin'.

I'm not really a fan of this. If I were CCDG, I would have opted for the chase card or even 3rd card before FPO.

I don't want to open the can or worms about women's golf, but I think covering only FPO will hurt their subscriber rate and views. It's a personal preference, but I won't watch the FPO coverage - it just isn't entertaining to me.

Hopefully CCDG still gets lead-card coverage for BSF & PO...

I can speak to this a little bit. A big goal of ours for the NT this year on the MPO1 and FPO1 side was consistency. With Terry having Smashboxx, that necessarily took him out of the mix for FPO1 coverage for the whole season. We hope to have live coverage at the GBO and MCO at least, but cell signal is always a hindrance at the others.

What more can we expect from Ian and CCDG? They are "super nice guys."
