I've heard a lot of debate surrounding this issue recently and I wanted to start a forum on it: which is better CBS or NBC? Obviously CBS has a more famous crew with the likes of Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo, but I've been liking NBC more recently. CBS has had an obscene amount of commercials, and NBC has used protracer much more often as well as the new wind graphic they have, both of which I love. I love Jim Nantz, and nothing beats the Masters coverage, but I'm really not a Nick Faldo fan. He seems to make a TON of off topic comments and I have counted (no joke) 5 comments over the past year where he referred to a player as having "a healthy pair of forearms" (What?). Also with the addition of David Feherty as well as broadcasts of the Open Championship and Olympics NBC is trending upwards. I have also found I really like Dan Hicks. Although I will say I cannot stand Johnny Miller. He seldom contributes anything positive or helpful to the broadcast and criticizes the best players in the world arrogantly and incessantly. What do you guys think? Obviously we can all agree, Fox is the worst!

Great thought process, and for me anytime David Feherty is on a broadcast, that's the one I am watching. I wish he would have more of a role other than interviews, or a hole reporter, because you don't hear him as much. I agree about Johnny Miller. I think Feherty should replace him in the booth and put Miller on the course. If it was not for Jim Nantz, CBS would totally blow in my opinion.

NBC. I love Maltby and prob the only person here who also loves Johnny Miller, he is abrasive but normally correct. Peter Jacobsen is the worst though, I can tell you what he's going to say and proved it to my wife during Bay Hill. They showed Sam Saunders and I said "he'll mention he's Arnold Palmer's grandson" They showed Eric Compton and I said "he'll mention his heart transplants". and about 10 other examples and my wife says "you either watch too much golf or this guy just says the same things over and over again". Indeed. Don't bring up Payne Stewart or you will hear about Jake Trout and the Flounders. Did I mention that Peter Jacobsen is the worst?

Jim Nantz needs to narrate Harlequin romance novels and move away from golf, nauseating pontifications on trivial crap.

Did I mention that I love Maltby? LOL

Best Peter Jacobson quote was during the 2016 Hyundai Tournament of Champions when one of their scenic shots before break was of a whale and commentators say something along the lines of "Jordan Spieth leads them all in Maui" to sum up the current situation while out of nowhere Jacobson goes "did you know that the humpback whale is a distant cousin of the hippopotamus?" I don't think I've laughed so hard in my life. But I do like Jacobson, he's repetitive but sometimes pretty funny especially when it comes to nature comments.

When I think of Jim Nantz, or atleast hear his voice, I think of College Basketball. Not Golf. I actually prefer almost any commentator.

I'm a Johnny Miller fan ( I guess being old and grumpy, I like it when he just blitzes someone) and when you add Ferehty NBC is my favorite. I still think Nantz is the best.
