Players seem bored by their fourth interview outside of the scoring trailer. Sometimes they even seem impatient or bored during their first. Media people sit in the tent playing Sudoku or browsing the internet all day, watching golf on television when it’s just outside their door. The colloquial round-table-esque questions produced by senior golf writers to professionals in the interview rooms are even getting on my nerves, believe it or not. While the courses may change each week, nothing seems to change for these people.
I’m still wowed by a lot of what goes on each week, so don’t get me wrong. But I’ve found that when I have at least one definitive task that needs to be accomplished during the day—such as when I’m handed a freelance assignment or Bob requests that I get him some quotes—my entire day becomes more focused.
So what am I getting at? I would like suggestions from you guys. Is there a player you’d like me to try and interview? Something you’d like me to do, like yell something at Rory Sabbatini? I can continue to observe things the way I always have, but having just one necessary task each day really helps me out. It keeps me on edge, and I like it.
So let me know. Instead of (God forbid) someday just trying to guess and see what people want to read about, why not have you guys let me know?
Take care everyone. Cheers.
