Golf Channel Bias
Kelly Whatshername just said they don't know what to make of Tiger's round after 15 holes. That they would have to be patient and watch it unfold. Why should they treat Tiger so different than Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington, Davis Love, Chris DiMarco??? The Golf Channel folks all said "oh woe is them for their sucky rounds, even though they've only played 4 holes so far." Ok, so that was a paraphrase. But you get the idea. The people working the Masters show today have no problem condemning other golfers' rounds after only 4 holes played but won't characterize Tiger's round when it's 3/4 of the way done. I think the Golf Channel needs to practice patience in greater detail.
