Coming Soon-Power Play Golf Tournament
You know the common complaint about watching golf on TV. It's worse than watching paint dry. Even the Masters, as exciting as it was, I grew a full beard waiting for it to end. Well, take heart, impatient TV watchers. Welcome to Power Play golf!
It's becoming a hit in Ireland and other European countries. Basically you play 9 holes instead of 18, and you have to do it in 3 hours! There are also 2 pins on every green, with one being alot harder to play than another. Also, men and women can play against each other. Here's a little video clip from YouTube:
Personally, I love the idea. I think it would attract alot more golfers who work during the day but want to sneak out and play a quick "9". This would be a VERY quick 9! And for television, it's a shoe-in! I keep thinking whenever I watch golf on TV--"what younger person is watching this right now? You can't stop a kid now-a-days from switching the channel every 5 minutes, for crying out loud! Same with alot of adults. This would be great. In fact, if they could make it the same length as a 1/2 hour sitcom, that would be even better!
