NBC showed strokes from 23 different players during the tracking period with eight golfers being covered for at least 23 strokes. Those eight accounted for 85% of the televised shots. NBC televised every stroke from winner Shane Lowry and all but one from runner-up Tommy Fleetwood (skipping only a tap-in on hole 11). That final pairing accounted for 45% of all televised strokes. Third place finisher Tony Finau was only covered for eight strokes. The highest finisher not shown during this period was Robert MacIntyre who was part of a tie for 6th.
I also counted the number of televised strokes by hole during the tracking period. Hole #1 (43 strokes) was featured most frequently by far as no other hole received more than 27 shots. On the flipside, the 15th hole was covered for just 10 televised srokes.
This is the sixth year that I have compiled these televised shot charts. For comparison to prior majors, see this summary table which contains links to all of my shot charts since 2014.
Here is the complete shot chart (including the highest finisher not shown during the tracking period) followed by the hole-by-hole breakdown:
|Tommy Fleetwood||73 (of 74)||2||1|
|Shane Lowry||72 (of 72)||1||1|
Note: The Pairing column reflects the tee time groupings in reverse order, so 1 = final pairing, 2 = next-to-last, etc.
