I don’t mean “in person,” I mean to watch. In this case, on television. I have always argued the televised coverage of golf–with its switching between holes and players, tees and greens, great hits and great misses, is unsurpassed in its ability to compress space and time for the more complete enjoyment of the viewer–is about as good a spectator experience as is imaginable. And far better than being there in person. This article captures my sentiment very well.
