Singapore everything must pay and pay mah (2x of everything)..Car + COE, House + COV, carpark + ERP, Phone line + data plan, Greens fee + buggy fee, massage + special, standard what...So must pay Singtel + Starhub

- TGC is very different in USA.
For every PGA tournament, Thursdays and Fridays are shown on TGC. Come the weekend, the broadcast rights go to either CBS or NBC. TGC then end up showing bits of LPGA then either Champions Tour or Nationwide Tour on the wkn.
Those 'live from the Masters, US Open etc' that's shown on TGC is wat they r only allowed to do-commentary, leaderboard, interviews etc. Majors' broadcasting rights belong to ESPN except the Masters where it's still CBS.
The LPGA is in limbo right now. The British Open is even more un-watched due to the timezone diff between Europe and US. Any Champion winning at 5pm GMT is like 1pm on the East Coast, 10am Pacific Time. Ppl r out playing golf in the mornings rather than watching a tourney being played overseas. (evident in the cost of a tee time being higher in the mornings as opp to an afternoon one).
We can only hope Sg stops this nonsense of splitting 2 Majors on Mio n 2 on SCV. It's almost a joke that ESPN is no more on SCV.
Good point. Time zones is one key reason why LPGA British Open did not fit in US market. I was able to stream online on Thursday and Friday via ESPN. Then I lost them on weekends.
The good news in Singapore is that from next year, SCV and Singtel will be able to cross carry contents, no more exclusivity. Bad news, I suspect, is that we have to pay more for such contents.

Yea.....heard from my cable guy about this rumor of paying more from 2012 onwards despite shared content.
Good for me, I guess, Coz I can drop either one from next year on.

To be honest....
I think to increase "more viewership"
American LPGA should invite All the Good Looking Lady Golfers" and make "Promo's" tours like Bob Arum does for Boxing.
With all the Beautiful & Sexy ladies, I think all Male Golfers would tuned in to the tube more ...hehe
bringing more revenues and advertisers
