Golfers To Be Attached To Microphones

The Golf Channel is trying to get more microphones on the golf course this season, an idea that has been approved by the PGA Tour and, like the LPGA Tour, will most likely be a weekly feature. A golfer with a mic on him, playing a competitive round of golf while we "listen in."

Why is this both a good and bad idea?

Well, it's always fun to listen in to what is going on. Some of my favorite moments from major championships is when a network can capture what the likes of Phil Mickelson and Bones are chatting about over an important shot, because it really brings the tournament to life.

What is the problem?

When players are miked, they don't say anything ... ever.

I remember a conversation with some LPGA girls before one of them is miked up, and a very famous LPGA player mentioned that when she had been microphoned previously, she had to give one of her playing partners a look multiple times because she was asking personal questions while the mike was live. They're never going to really say anything controversial, and like we see with NBA coaches and the like, most of the stuff they pull out is boring and prepared.

So, yes, I love the idea, and maybe once a year we will get a solid "Boom, Baby!" out of it, but for the most part, it will just be golfers talking about golf.
