    Did anyone else notice how bad of a job that NBC did covering the US Open Golf Tournament?

    There were so many technical glitches. The audio dropped out about 20 times an hour. The image froze, or went black about 10 times an hour. This, coupled with the fact that they only showed about 10 minute of actual play for the first few hours of coverage made me really appreciate the normal CBS coverage of Golf.

    At least they showed the players golfing more in the last few hours of coverage.

    What I noticed even more was the fact that for their high definition coverage, not all of their cameras were high definition. After looking at a beautiful shot from a high definition camera, then having a rear angle shot that is clearly not HD, the difference can be quite jarring.
