We, the blind sports fans of America request that all sports announcers describe sports using the numbers related to the activity. This is the only way we can ‘see’ what is happening. The deaf have the benefit of Closed Captioning, the blind have nothing. We can only tell what is happening if you speak the numbers.
Golf-The following should be spoken for all distances:
