Ads? I didn't watch many of them. Switched to TCM during the commercials, but the few commercials I saw:
- Budweiser: excellent
- Jeep, Groundhog Day, Jim Murray: excellent
From the internet;
Dubbed “The Greatest Show on Grass,” The Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale has no problem living up to its name. In addition to playing host to the greatest players in the game, the tournament is the PGA TOUR's best attended event – drawing nearly 500,000 enthusiastic spectators each year.At the "end" of the 16th hole, Finau was ahead of the eventual winner by two strokes. It was his tournament to win and the announcers were talking about how it was finally his turn to win a tournament.
So, let's follow the "replay" now that we know how it ended.
Walking down the 17th, the color commentators were all ga-ga over Finau. Again, he was leading the tournament by two strokes on the second to last hole.
On the green, Finau is first to go; excellent lag put; will drop one stroke to Simpson. Par.
Simpson, goes next: a long put, on the fringe, for eagle. A foot from the cup. Birdie.
So, going to the 18th hole, Finau leads by one stroke over Simpson, who will eventually go on to win the tournament in a playoff.
Announcers note that Finau has yet to hit the fairway off the 18th tee this tournament. Let's see what happens this time.
Still, all the talk by the announcers is about Finau. Not much said about Simpson.
Simpson goes first. Over the water, beautiful shot. Now announcers say Finau must feel pressure.
Finau: huge tee shot; hits the 18th fairway, for the first time this tournament.
Walking down the fairway. Still all the talk focused on Finau.
Simpson is "away." Will go first. Not particularly good; landed near the fringe again.
Wow, how does Finau lose a stroke to Simpson here?
So, here's Finau. From 83 yards -- wonderful shot -- maybe 15 feet from the hole. Announcers and crowd are sure that Tony Finau will win. Announcers already talking about what it means when he (Tony Finau) wins this one.
Camera shot of Finau's family, his coach, etc. It's all about Finau.
Webb Simpson puts first from the fringe. And he makes it. Will gain a stroke with this put.
Now, all of a sudden, the announcers are talking about a playoff. Finau puts. Short put. MISSES!
Simpson will go on to win on the first hole in the playoff. Sudden death.
