Golf World (UK) - - SPIN - Colin Baker, Email

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.
