    PGA/Sky 'bias'!

    Great to watch Tiger's play, but I've only seen 1 shot from Rose who is actually joint leader!

    Tiger = ratings
    Rose = turning over

    It's just how it is.

    I have switched to pointless or any other programme when a tournament morphs into the 'Tiger Woods and former glories' show, show me the leader !!

    In all fairness, sky are at the mercy of cbs the host broadcaster and tiger was in the lead or within a shot whilst playing. Rory played before it was even live as he just made the cut.

    I’m guessing Mark Roe is smack in the middle of it - was enough to turn it off yesterday , he was horrific anout Woods and you would think he was the only person playing

    Mark roe is a terrible commentator, his voice is annoying. Knowledgeable guy but I'd say he's more up Rory's behind than tigers, sky need to give him another job...

    Not sure what you're talking about

    I only caught half the highlights show and even with that limited broadcast I saw Rose make two shots out the same bunker!!

    That's great value airtime :-)

    I don’t think this is all a Tiger point but an issue with US coverage being done poorly. I don’t think they have sufficient cameras as it continues to go between two channels as Cantlay had a hole in one which I don’t think was shown in US ( and presumably here?)
