Sportvision at Chambers Bay A Veritable Eye-Opener

By now you're probably heard plenty about Fox Sports's plans for its debut U.S. Open broadcast at Chambers Bay, especially its announcing team led by Joe Buck and Greg Norman. Less publicized is that Fox has partnered with Sportvision, the company responsible for TV sports innovations such as the yellow first-down line and superimposed strike zone, to enhance the Open telecast. Sportvision will provide distances to a variety of features on each hole (hazards, sand or the back of the green). Fox's head golf producer, Mark Loomis, also has hinted at other key features, such as the use of Pro-Tracer and a focus on sound-whether it be of crisp contact or player-caddie banter.
