The worst habits of golf commentators

This is going to sound like I’m picking on Rob Lee but I’m really not. I actually think he’s pretty good. But he, like so many sitting behind a microphone, has a bad habit of resorting to silly exaggerations when describing the action unfolding before him. Calling Victor Dubuisson’s first stunning ‘up-and-down’ in extra holes last night a ‘miracle’ was a bit over the top. Suggesting that he should be ‘beatified’ and made a saint after the next was even sillier. Tongue in cheek, of course, but silly. Notice how Ewen Murray doesn’t resort to that. That might be because he knows more about the game, the players, the courses, and even their designers, and, as such, has more to tell you.
