Bholley - the announcers are not what they are referring to in the article.....it's the golf productions, the way the events are produced for the viewers. That is basically a shot at the people who produced the US open and the Masters.
The USGA took more money ,which is fine but hopefully we will get a better product as golf fans and viewers.
Fox and USGA both said this deal will be better for golf fans and the sport..... it's in the article - Fox to make a profit will show more commercials which means less golf than NBC did . To me that is not a good thing.
The best example of this is the Masters, they could be making a LOT more money than they do but they choose to have only 6 or 7 minutes of commercials per hour. That's something done for the good of the sport, IMO.
And when it comes to blithering announcers FOX right now has Terry Bradshaw, Joe Buck, Tim Mccarver, Tony Siragusa and Gus Johnson - that's a group they hand picked so I am not hopeful they will do much better than that for golf.
Hopefully Fox will surprise golf fans and do a great job but ..........
