The coverage of the Open by Sky was, to say the least, rather dire. Typically, the offering was 10 minutes of golf followed by adverts, then 10 minutes of golf before more adverts. And on and on it went. This in itself is highly frustrating, but what jarred even more was the poor-quality commentary and camera work.
The BBC’s coverage may have its faults, but their expert analysers actually know what they’re talking about and they do at least give us the opportunity to watch the action unfold without having to skip to endless advertisements.
For the good of the game, it’s time the BBC was given the Open back.
