  1. Would be nice to get the international feed, even though Canada isn’t represented on the international team this time.

    • Meh, I don’t know. I really like NBC’s golf coverage (especially now they work with Golf Channel). I feel like some sort of international feed wouldn’t have as good of commentators. Nine and Fox Sports’ coverage from Australia would be okay, but probably isn’t worth the cost.

  2. is Golf channel coverage of the competition blacked out (like Speed F1 coverage is)? I’ve been on an assignment in Maine during the week so I can’t check, and I think my wife would get annoyed if I asked her to check.

What do you think?
