I'm sure most have seen the news (www.golfdigest.com/.../usga-announces-u-s--open-will-move-to-nbc--ending-relationship-w).
I enjoyed the US Open telecast on Fox but think that Golf Channel/NBC is a better home for the other events. We all know that Golf Channel is on constantly in clubhouses and the homes of golf fans who will appreciate catching some of the four-ball, US Junior, or US Senior Open that have been relegated to FS1 the past few years.
I am optimistic that NBC/GC will dive in on coverage of unique events like the Walker Cup and US Open sectionals as well. The deal also gives Golf Channel a real chance to tell stories of rising stars with (now) coverage of the US Junior, NCAA golf, and the US Am/Walker Cup.
Hoping that Brad Faxon and Shane Bacon (incidentally, both Titleist guys) end up somewhere good after the shake-up.

Azinger works for NBC also. He replaced Johnny Miller. Odd that we was working for both networks.
