OH MY FREAKING GOD! I am watching the final round, listening to him get so worked up about everything. Is he going through male menopause? This guy HAS to be banned from Augusta. His vocabulary is 21 words deep, and he does not know when to let the story tell the tale. He adds NOTHING to the telecast, and is incapable of saying less than fifty-five (more than double his vocabulary) words in an emotive sentence. Johnny Miller must be weeping.

It has been twenty-five minutes, I wrote a blog that piggy-backs/dove-tails on yours, and Lanny still spews nothing but hooey. I'm religiously trying to keep the four-letter vulgarities out of my comments, and it's difficult. Put Oosterhuis in the top seat next to Nantz, and relegate Wadkins to the par three competition.

Ditto. Lanny is supposed to be providing "expert" commentary but can't find a sentence. On the other hand because there were so many players at the top by the time the last three or four groups got to the back CBS couldn't handle the coverage even with "limited commercial interruption."

If you were a real golfer instead of a writer/hacker you'd know exactly what Lanny means...

Yes, Lanny is horrible! But Johnny Miller is far worse. At least we don't have to hear Lanny tell us how he shot 63 at Oakmont every 10 minutes.

The Big Three Now...

Get rid of him, along Johnny Miller and (thank God Venturi) is gone. Put all three in the booth for four hours there would not be anything positive said...

Only way to get it done, write Hootie, not the general public who witnessed Lanny screw it up....

Hey Johnny williams, when you find out what Lanny means, fill the rest of us in on it. He's terrible and he also has an irritating voice.Get rid of him. Just because he plays pro golf doesn't mean he can talk about it.

The BBC (British TV/radio/Internet/etc. corporation) have hired Gary Lineker--former England football captain and striker--to commentate for the Masters (at the time of writing, the Masters has been finished for a full day, but still..). I'm not sure whether he's got a permanent contract, but I do know that golf commentary is not where his future lies.

He isn't exactly an authority on golf. You can just tell he's reading off of a piece of paper. At one point he said,

"Let's see if Tiger can win his first major....[ten second delay, realises he's talking shit]....erm, when not coming from behind on the final day....[nice save, you moron]"

Get a clue, Gary.

What's wrong with just a few "QUITE" moments at a golf tournament. Isn't that one reason we go play- to hear the birds see the changing scenery especially at The Masters.
What kills me are two things; one when someone hits a bad shot how they show what a bad swing it was, when if you framed it with video, you'll see only (if you can see anything) a different clubface position. And my second observation is how hard or critical these commentators are. Under PRESSURE the shots they hit are not as easy as they are day in and day out.
I'm glad I was THERE for two days
so I could experience the uneditorilized version!!!!

What about "Ball Striker"? How many times does he have to say Ball Striker? What about "Step Up"? How many times do we have to hear that? Doesn't anyone at CBS listen to this guy?

Johnny Williams--

I know what Lanny the Commentary Guy *meant*, but it's not what he *said*. And when you're getting paid to do commentary, saying what you mean in a clear and pleasant manner is important.


That's hysterical! I wish I could have heard that guy myself.

Kiel Christianson is an idiot. Lanny is pretty good and getting better. If Kiel wants to criticize, he should take notest like any good reporter. Better yet, let's put him on the 18th tower and see how he does.

Larry, did I touch a nerve? Are you a cable guy?
Why have a "pretty good" guy covering the Masters when there are excellent guys out there?

I'm glad to hear someone else has noticed Lanny's inane blathering.
This weekend he was calling poor shots "unforced errors"! Maybe he thinks it's basketball. Maybe the pros have started playing defense in golf. The only worse job I ever heard was Brent Mussmouth. And even he got better as he learned a little about the game.

How about his poor grammer? He always says.....he hit it "solid" when the correct adverb is "solidly". Why in the world hasn't he been corrected?

Mike sez: "How about his poor grammer? ..."


You gotta love the irony of someone who can't spell grammar correcting Wadkins' linguistic prowess. LOL
