There’s been a lot made of the U.S. Open being on Fox for the last two years. While most people will simply complain about Joe Buck’s lackluster enthusiasm for the art of announcing sports, I’m going to make a motion that Fox is actually killing it.
Between Holly Sonder’s profile shots that show she’s been doing squats and constant Protracer on pretty much every hole and even some fairways, Fox has seemed to figure out where they’re going to make their money. But furthermore, they’ve given us some insight into something you rarely see during normal golf coverage – extensive conversation between players and caddies. Normally you can hear a little banter, but it’s ruined by Johnny Miller interjecting and talking about that one time he won a U.S. Open himself.
The best thus far as a captivating interaction between Jordan Spieth and his caddy, Michael Greller.
Pretty awesome that even Spieth and his caddy are in amazement of Dustin Johnson’s length, but it was kind of sad hearing Spieth become letdown by his shot after the complete lack of applause. Either way, Fox’s coverage doesn’t compare to The Masters, but it’s still pretty damn good. .
