TV Golf Announcers Just Make Stuff Up: Rory McIlroy

By Wayne | Videos: As Seen On TV and Extras

In this video you will see proof of what I have been saying for some time now, namely that when announcers (any of them) describe why a Tour player sends a shot awry they are making it up. The point is that the actual reasons a shot by a great player is missed are so small and fast that they are simply not seeable, even with a slow motion camera, unless there is time to do a side by side comparison with computer graphics of swings from identical angles and lies.

Of course he’s making it up. When Miller’s talking about thousands of inches he’s really doubting himself. Is a hundred of an inch even possible to detect using your drawing of lines Wayne?? Maybe a tenth of an inch, but Miller sure as hell wouldn’t be able to see that. He has problems seing when players “drop” their head or not – and then we’re talking about 4-7 inches.
