Watching The Masters

2 3 mins 2 yrs

Watching the Masters golf tournament on my TV it struck me just how much improvements in broadcasting and screen technologies have transformed the viewing experience. Back in the day, which was not that long ago, watching golf on TV was a grainy, blurry, optically challenged show. You could not see the golf ball, for the most part, either on the greens or in flight. The viewer had to use their imagination and the flattened images of Augusta National gave no real indication of what the course was like. Now, we can see the steep slopes and perception of the course geography is dramatically enriched.
