I know we've seen them before at the German Masters, but now we've had the BBC to compare them to.
Personally, I'm not keen on laddish banter masquerading as analysis. I'd rather they take the ITV approach, if they are going to be minimalist. Getting experts in to talk sense about shots. Here we just get Ronnie and Jimmy providing the bants, but not really adding insight. Two legends of the game, but I'd rather see sensible analysis to joking about. Just my personal preference.
Colin Murray isn't as funny as he wants to be, and seems to spend more time getting cheap thrills out of the fact he's hanging out with Jimmy and Ronnie. He's a bit of a div. He even forgot his own name on the opening day.
Though saying that, I did like that they are trying to do analysis for the tournament. Eurosport's coverage is a bit bare bones without it. And, despite my criticisms of Colin, I have just tweeted him to ask if there is analysis for The Masters.
What is other people's opinions? Better than the BBC? Better than nothing? Or they should just go back to what they had before?
