    Nope. Too little too late for my tuppence worth and no excuse not to have it on BBC instead of Alice In Wonderland if they were serious about sport and trying to get people interested

    IPlayer coverage on a smart tv or device linked to a tv is outstanding

    Basic in this day and age

    This isn't having a dig or anything but I'm genuinely interested to know if the majority of people complaining have Sky.
    And if the majority of people who aren't complaining don't have Sky.
    I don't have Sky - I'm not complaining...

    For some. Straw poll among those in the club match from both sides (and heard someone moaning in the locker room moaning he couldn't find it on Sky) and many thought the red button wasn't a good platform and most, including me have no idea about linking devices as a technophobe. As I said, no excuse in my opinion for this not to be on now (even starting at 9.00) on either BBC 2 or BBC4

    I have Sky and have complained.
    Maybe if someone isn't use to watching the better quality coverage on sky The BBC's doesn't look so bad.

    I have Sky and I'm not complaining . The main issue for me is the US feed

    For me it's very poor and indeed selfish for someone to suggest that the BBC block out another channel for sport when they already have one channel fully blocked out for sport - total disregard for the other 24 plus million licence players who don't want to watch sport and actually want to possible watch a film or a variety program.

    Maybe the thing killing golf is the leader's 3 ball taking 3 hours to get halfway down the 10th...

    I don't really get this.
    Yes 3hrs to play the front 9 is stupid slow.
    But it's not like we're only watching that group.

    Really? That's painful!
