The players are better
The clubs are better
The balls are better

Tiger shattered most of the old records anyway.

The USGA got exactly what they wanted..a pretty good golf tournament. Erin Hills is a very very difficult track. From the distance they played it it's impossible for the average hack......it's hard for a 6 index as well.
Yet last year they played on one of the traditional courses and the winning score was -4 with 6 guys at par or better. To say it's not the course is wrong. Erin Hills is bigger and longer than the traditional tracks which makes it tougher for amateurs but does little to identify the best players among the top professionals which is what the tournament is supposed to do.

The tracer and tracer/split screen alone puts them ahead of any other coverage. The bar is not very high though as golf coverage is the nut low.

Yes it is. It takes a semi-truck trailer of equipment just for that. That's why we don't see it very week.
