I was thinking about sending an email to PGA Tour website to get them to change their font(s) on the certain pages to make it easier to read. The current font(s) on, for example, http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/schedule.html is cr@p IMO.

Other fonts like Verdana are easier on the eye and have more spaces between each letters and the letters are designed better than the current one.

Does anyone on here agree?

Report Total Bosman February 22, 2014 11:19 AM GMT
New designs always come as a bit of a shock, but this one seems pretty horrible.  I guess the rationale is to make it more tablet-friendly but it still seems like a really unstructured mess.

While new designs can be a bit of a shock, even comic like, the most important thing is choosing the correct font that is easy to read quickly.

Hopefully the upgrade will include differentiating between D.H.Lee and Danny Lee on the mobile website.

agrre ski-wiz, nasty typeface on that page, too heavy, too condensed, no need for fancy stuff, nice and simple does it best

I might be missing it among the clutter, but can anyone spot the course guide page for this week?  Pretty basic information and now seems pretty hard to find.

I hate it when sites change like this ... I mean, maybe I'm a bit of a dinosaur, I still use the old BF site ... but I can't see how the new site is an improvement. I didn't think much of the old PGA Tour site either, because it didn't have tournament results from previous years, but this is still the case for the new site. And now there are lots of broken links ... like Total Bosman said, the course guide page is not there anymore. Also, I can only see the top 16 players on the leaderboard without scrolling, that's gonna be annoying! Surely with all the money in the game, they could come up with something better than this?

Setting the screen to 75% helps but still can't see any link to Shot tracker. Plenty of huge pictures though !
Report Mighty Whites 2008 February 26, 2014 9:23 PM GMT
There is a 'new leaderboard' where if you click on the player you get his shot tracker.

Hope they haven't got rid of the shot tracker page.

The old site used to say something like  THIRD SHOT 12 ft to hole on the par 4 5th hole for example, now it just says THIRD SHOT 12 ft to hole !!!! on a what!!! a Par 3 or a Par 4 or a Par 5    dreadful, I know you can look on the scoreboard to find out the Par of the hole but it time consuming,   Changes for changes sake, and also the colour coding, why two colours almost the same, Blue and light blue, why not have a RED for Danger on my big losers !!!!

Truly Terrible Upgrade!  Looks like they've tried to simplify it and made a complete hash of it!
Report STUDYFORM February 27, 2014 11:01 PM GMT
They make changes (not unlike BF) which they think are better and which aren't. Anyone who says the changes make the site worse is just seen as resistant to change.
They never change it back.
The changes made to the PGA site are about the worst I've ever seen.
Report Quincy February 28, 2014 10:01 AM GMT
Ski, if I log on to the PGA site using Firefox, I end up with messages saying 'A script on this page may have stoppped working' with the option to continue or stop the script.  Click on 'Stop' and you get another one pooping up. I'm miles behind with paperwork anyway, losing another ten minutes every time it happens does my head in. I'm stuck with McGirt, Fowler, De Jonge and real no-hopers on the Honda.  The less said about the Tshwane the better.  Good luck with yours.

The leaderboard is far too spaced out now. You see a lot few players listed before you have to scroll (on my desktop PC). Definitely too focussed on tablets - why not have separate styles and layouts per device. I really don't like the new site's layout... :-(

This could have been written by me. I bet on golf four times a year but decided to take a look this evening. Looked at the PGA site for the first time in ages and can't believe how awful it is.  You used to be able to clcik on any year for a player and click on any tournament to get the details.

You can add me to the list - for historical data, the site is a joke. Their advertisers would be pleased to know that I go to CBS Sports !!
