On Sunday afternoon, it looked like Brooks Koepka was going to somehow blow his seven-shot lead that he entered the day with.
After bogeying four-straight holes and seeing Dustin Johnson find a few birdies along the way, Koepka’s lead was down to just one stroke before DJ imploded of the final few holes.
As Koepka took the tee at No. 18 for his final hole, he did so with a two-shot lead. All he needed to do was score a five on the final hole to win the PGA Championship for the second year in a row.
Koepka hit an errant tee shot, but instead of staying with Koepka along the hole for his second shot, CBS decided to interview Dustin Johnson about his round instead.
Fans watching from home were perplexed with the decision to not show Koepka’s shot with audio from Jim Nantz and company.
Here’s just a little bit of the reaction:
Also, CBS are you bleeping kidding me? You cut to a meaningless interview instead of watching Koepkas pitch out? That's horrifically bad TV production. You should be disgusted by that decision. #PGAChamp @CBSSports

Not showing one of the most important shots in the entire tournament isn’t a good way to broadcast.
In the end, Koepka found a par on the final hole to walk away with a two-shot lead. It’s the fourth major tournament win for Koepka, who has won back-to-back PGA Championships.
