For any golf fan The Golf Channel has become required viewing. Every chance we get to watch more golf is a good thing and a good thing has become even better with all the resources The Golf Channel now has with its blending into the NBC/Universal family. This weekend’s spotlight on The Bear Trap is just one example.
I have a hard time trying to convince my kids that ESPN hasn’t been around forever. Now, it’s the same with The Golf Channel, it has become woven into the fabric that makes up all golfers. Go into any golf club, pro shop or 19th Hole and you’ll see clubs, hats, balls, polo shirts, pictures of Jack and Arnie and golfers watching The Golf Channel.
The personalities on the Golf Channel have become our newsmen, instructors and friends. While not every portion of the programming is classic (please, enough Donald Trump) most of it is at the least informative and at its best very entertaining. It used to be ESPN and CNBC on all day in my house. Now I have my priorities in order: The Golf Channel 24-7.
