MORE GRAPHICS PLEASE: Kaufmann in a separate piece notes NBC “has some cool graphics; I only wish it would use them more.” The net made its '12 PGA Tour debut last week with the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, and on "precious few occasions, NBC used its PinPoint graphic to illustrate the position of each player’s drive, along with a box listing the driving distance and distance to the pin.” Kaufmann: “I recall seeing it used only once Saturday.” Kaufmann also likes “the PinPoint technology that maps greens,” though that was "used sparingly” (GOLFWEEK, 3/2 issue).
