Don’t interview pro golfers during the round; let them interview themselves

The PGA Tour wants you, the fan, to have a better idea of what the best golfers in the world are experiencing as they try to track down trophies, money and points every week.

The plan for a more immersive TV fan experience involves interviewing players while they compete, during the round. It's an idea building upon getting the OK to interview players before rounds, when they arrive to the course or on the practice facility -- still a relatively new part of PGA Tour coverage.

But the idea of interviewing players in-round, particularly in the critical weekend rounds, misses the mark. It's not something the Tour should be pursuing on behalf of the fan.
