    Reading the whining on here is more than making up for the lack of excitement from the "non" Major.

    I thought the quality of coverage on the BBC was poor but I wouldn't point the finger at them, the blame lies with the PGA of America for awarding it to them with so little time for the BBC to prepare for it, compare it to their Masters coverage which tends to be decent (commentary aside) and its night and day.

    Re: USPGA Championship on BBC

    How far away are we from coverage being on via YouTube only? How would commentary work then? Would it be host provider only?

    As people have mentioned that is how under 25's view content now and that appeals to advertisers.

    I'm slightly surprised that the likes of Finch and Crossfield have not been tried by a broadcaster in order to bring through some of the new generation.

    That was a very strange decision from Day not to chip back onto the fairway on 18 that in the end resulted in playing from the toilet block and a triple bogey
