WGC Match Play viewer responds to NBC's 'pressure'

As network hammers Californian with talk about ‘pressure,’ fed-up viewer opts for sure-fire way to relieve all of that stress

Billy Horschel certainly was a big winner at the PGA Tour's WGC Match Play, but the big losers were the TV fans.

If I hear the word “pressure” one more time …

I was home that week and watched the bell-to-bell coverage on NBC and Golf Channel but finally had to turn the sound waaaay down.   

1,137 references to “pressure.” We get it. You tee off first to put "pressure" on the other guy ... and you hit first to put "pressure" on the other guy ... and so on and so forth.

It never ended.
