Had the total misfortune to watch some of the coverage of this.
Sat down to watch the last hour.
The commentary was tripe.
60 minutes (like Chanel 9’s show. It’s only 48 minutes if you take the adds out) was all I could stomach.

Chanel 7 seemed to be obsessed with the disgraced Australian cricket cheat David Warner in the Emirates corporate tent. Cutting to him on way to many occasions.
WTF for? What has he done for golf?
Muppet

The 7 commentary team, what a bunch of gibberers.
Golf can be viewed with out to much intervention from those with microphones. Pukearama...

Memo Chanel 7 = Take a leaf from the late Richie Benau. Let the vision do the talking.

Thank god Robert Allenby didn’t feature. But let’s not forget how much he does for charity. 🤦‍♂️

And in closing I’d like to finish on a positive note.
Gotta say having the disabled guys play off the same markers was awesome. Kudos to those who promoted this. Very very impressed.

It was quite amusing they seemed to think there was still a contest happening halfway through the final round.

The coverage and commentary was farked, thank goodness for the mute button.

You could have got a start, Brendan Lawlor did.

The only contest I was aware of was who was going to be crowned the biggest gibberer.

I would have preferred Frank Nobilo and Craig Perks in the booth and shots of Chrus Cairns drinking a Speights.

I'm good, but no-one seems to care.

Is it really your ABC?
