Poor since last update 2/5
By Elberta john
I have been thinking that the latest update would grow on me, but it just hasn’t.
Also, I am a fan of Tiger bu tired of Golf Channel acting like he is the only player out there. It would be good if you could rotate pictures of players on opening page.
They should be embarrassed 1/5
What a disappointment. If they want to sell ads (and there are too many), at least offer the viewing consumer an app that works. This is the digital equivalent of a piece of junk.
Get 5 minutes of streaming coverage, then shuts down...completely worthless, IMO.
What happened? 1/5
App, no matter the connection takes forever to load. Tired of looking at Tiger Woods stating at me for 5 minutes. Also liked the old format better as all the news was on the front page and you could go to other pages for the social crap if you so desired. But this is slow,slow,slow
Constantly Crashes 2/5
This app lags horribly. The live feed rarely connects to smart TVs and Apple TV. This streaming needs to be fixed
App won’t open on iPhone 8.
Horrible Change - App Slow to Update 1/5
I used to really like this app until the recent update. Now often when I open it, the app fails to update so I end up getting the screen from the day before. What’s the point of a golf app if I can get more up-to-date info from Google? For shame. Fire the person who created the new format, it’s not working.
Needs an update. 1/5
Every time you load fantasy golf on the app it prompts you to sign in. Never did this before. Just want to sign in and stay signed in.
App keeps crashing 1/5
Why does the app keep crashing ? Are you aware of the issue?
The Absolute Worst 1/5
Live feed should be renamed live freeze! Locks up the iPad constantly. Pixilated feed more than clean clear video. Runs the same stupid adds incessantly! By comparison, I just watched hours of commercial free first round coverage of the Masters without a hitch on Masters.com. Far, far superior. C'mon golf channel, at least make an effort. Losers!
Not a Role Model 2/5
New update has Woods as the cover boy. I understand he now plays Taylor Made, your sponsor. Some people, me included, believe the past is the past.
You have the number 1 ranked player in the world in DJ. He was the cover boy. Why switch?
I close my eyes when I see Woods in any venue. I consider him to be a detriment, at this time, to the game of golf. Not a role model for youth, like Arnie, Gary, Tom Watson, Nicklaus, Phil and you insert who you want after those names.
I echo, also some of the new layout. Your update was not an improvement.
Spectrum Cannot Watch App Live 3/5
I download app and use for news but cannot watch due to a dispute with my cable provider - spectrum Time Warner.
Either solve the issue or give a user ability to buy a subscription. I would pay extra to stream.
Also you are a tv channel how do you not have an appleTV app????
I think the app is 5 stars but missing platforms like appleTV and not allowing a user to subscribe when there is an issue with cable company is leaving money on the table brings it down.
Will not stream live TV 1/5
By Irritated over and over
Complete useless. It will not stream live TV with my cable provider (DirecTV Now) signed in.
Porn Ad? 1/5
By haboobs fury
Opened app today and in the middle of the listed players were 3 ads...one of which is porn! Not only is this a terrible app but now this???
How can you so consistently get the scores wrong, last week in match play it was horrible, a player could be up by 3 holes, but if he lost his last hole, you had him down, and you show the same status for bogeys and doubles or worse, for birdies you have a circle, for eagles you have a circle within a circle, that’s correct, but for bogeys you have a square, also correct, but for double bogeys or worse, you post nothing, should be a square within a square. App developer apparently knows nothing about golf, but this is the golf channel, fix it already!
Too much Tiger 1/5
App used to be my goto app for but, now, too much tiger
Horrible waste 1/5
I never write app reviews but this app became so terrible that I just have to share with anyone who has anything to do with the design needs to start over, not try to fix it. There was no way to view anything horizontally on a pad you have to watch things vertically, may have been fixed.....articles are difficult to find....on air personality posts can’t be found simply and can’t be responded to, and on and on. Really it is embarrassing that the single largest source of golf information can’t get its act together. I am using other apps for scoring and golf information more often, hope Taylor Made’s ads are worth it, super tired of Rahm...
Worse since the update 2/5
By Mostly Seller
It takes longer to load and often continues to reload. I use this for fantasy golf and I tried to enter my lineup four different times this week and it kept reloading before I could finish and I kept having to start over. I finally had to go to the website on my computer.
New update provides nothing.....articles are blank, headlines are useless. Using the website until this is fixed.
Worst ever.....nothing good to say. Hard to navigate, too long to load, and forever to find anything useful....pictures are too big. I want News and headlines, not lifesize pictures
Looking back to PGA
Horrendous update 1/5
Never seen anything like this. The iPad app was updated and now does not display in landscape view on an iPad. Looks like the app was converted to an iPhone only app, possibly for cost cutting reasons. I thought I might have locked the screen rotation on my iPad by accident, but nope, just a horrendous update.
New update locks screen 2/5
By Dr. C. In TN
The newest update can only be viewed in vertical position. Will note rotate to horizontal.
App not working 3/5
I used to use the app all the time. Got an iPhone 8 Plus and now the app won’t fully open. The splash page comes up and then goes to the background. Fix please
What happened? 1/5
How can you get it so wrong ? I’ve seen this happen with other apps in the past. Is there a financial reason that we’re missing? No reasonable person could consider this an improvement. I agree with other comments on iPad usage and no portrait view available, and overall less information and a confusing format. There must be something that’s not obvious
By terrobe update
Why can this app be only viewed as Portrait. I have quit using it.
Update killed this app 1/5
By 678 preload doesnt work
Dont use this app! It is terrible since the 2018 update. This used to be my go to golf app.
Go Back 1/5
Please go back to the old version. The upgrade is not iPad friendly. No rotation. I loved the old version, but I rarely look at the new one. Who thought this was a good change?
Crash Crash Crash 1/5
Well, the app used to work. Now it crashes upon launch EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Basically, I have the app on my phone, but cannot use it.
Very Poor 1/5
The splash page opens in Landscape mode, but then shifts to Portrait mode, permanently. Did someone actually think this was a good idea? Zero Rating on design.
Very Disappointed 1/5
By Commercial Painter
This was one of my favorite apps until the latest update. Really, forcing an IPad to be displayed portrait? Forcing users to scroll down. My favorite app is now a major disappointment.
Update us terrible 1/5
Decided to update the app on an app I use typically everyday without issue. Now I can't even get the app to come up. It goes out as soon as it comes up. Now I have no updates to scores and news. Not pleased at all. Thanks app administrators.
Still needs work 1/5
Lots of unused space on the leader board. Can you add previous rounds?
No landscape mode.
It was better than the PGA app, but not anymore.
So I’m using the PGA app unless you make major improvements.
Video buffers and nearly incompatible with Apple TV. 2/5
By Paul Chris
Tested internet speed multiple times, pulling over 100 mbps so isn't issue with speed. Not having this issue with other apps. Video will close itself and force me to watch commercial every time. Fix!
Even though you may have tried to improve this app, why not make the very much needed correction and allow app to work in horizontal mode? I mean, why go backward with updates? Man up Golf Channel......
Latest upgrade 1/5
Very poor. Annoying that I can only view in portrait mode. Why is that?? That's a step backward.
Bad bad bad 1/5
Fix the login issue for fantasy golf. I’m sick and tired of continuously being logged off. Fix it. You’ve had 2 updates since the release and never once addressed a known issue. Fix it!
Poor choice 1/5
Golf channel spends enormous time promoting the worst inspirational person of any sport ever televised. Children and adults should be treated with viewing of respectable participants with a decent life style. Tiger Woods every move is followed. Please concentrate on better players of real character
That children can look up to with pride. And I can watch tournament play without using the mute button.
Terrible Updates. 1/5
I have been using golf channel app a long time. Not sure I ever rated it, but it would have been 5 star. Then for some reason you guys changed it. Then the PGA app copied you or maybe visa versa. Now both apps stink. Then you guys made it portrait mode with no landscape option. What are you thinking??? Someone needs to be fired. I updated the app on my ipad. I will try to be careful and not update the old version on my iphone.
Terrible Upgrade 1/5
This latest version makes it so bad to use my iPad that I have deleted it.....
App stinks. 1/5
Can’t turn orientation. Displays in portrait only. Can’t we get more Tiger news? Really? I want him to win but geez! There are other golfers winning and they don’t get any articles.
Not anymore! 1/5
No landscape? No way! Can you explain to me how taking away landscape functionality on the iPad is a user interface improvement? Use landscape 99.99% of time on iPad. Toast!
Update (02/09): don't know what happened, but videos are working fine, not HD quality, but load quickly with good sound.
BRAVO!!!! The latest update is great so far. It loads quickly, it's MUCH clearer and provides a TON more info. Unfortunately, I lost my favorites again. But, I feel that's a small price to pay for a, now, class app. The flash video issue is a definite DUH on your parts, but overall, I like the upgrade.
Poor App for IPads 1/5
By Seve look alike
I don't know which is worse, this app or trying to understand what Cara Robinson is saying. It seems whenever I try to look at videos and photos on the app, it times out almost immediately and goes back to my IPad home screen. Today I tried to view The Open on the Golf Channel app after work and you guessed it...it would not load and kept taking me back to my IPad home screen. Golf Channel should be ashamed to offer a product that is worse than hitting a shank. FIX THE BUGS !!!
Actually it gets stuck at the splash screen and then kicks me back to the home screen. It’s still running in the background ( double clicking the home button shows that) but it won’t actually run.
Bring back Landscape orientation view! 1/5
I use keyboard case with iPad, new update is awful no landscape viewing.
Update is the worst thing I have ever seen. I will be removing the app from my iPad. In addition to the update they have gone back to being all about Tiger, of the first nine stories seven involved him. Did anyone else play?
Are you kidding me? 1/5
The graphics and interface aren’t very good but at least the load is slow...
Bring back landscape for IPad 2/5
Ridiculous!! Why would you take away landscape orientation? Getting ready to delete!
Air times never available. Why??? Live video doesn’t work.
Air times now work. Video still never plays.
Awful update 2/5
By Muzik Man 2
Sometimes it’s just better to leave well enough alone. This is one of those times. Changing layouts for no reason or benefit and on top of it not allowing landscape mode. Should be a better setup menu in options. Just a mess.
