Golf fans are still FUMING with the delayed coverage of the CJ Cup on PGA Tour

Let's face it, at this time of year our golf coverage isn't that great. 

Big names are missing as they take some time off from the Ryder Cup and get ready to go again in the next few months. 

It is to be expected, tournaments at this time of year have never attracted the biggest of names. 

But last weekend at the CJ Cup at Summit in Las Vegas on the PGA Tour was different. 

Rickie Fowler returned to form. 

Jordan Spieth was doing Jordan Spieth things again. 

Oh, Rory McIlroy turned up the heat and won again. 

Collin Morikawa surged through the field on Sunday and was doing his level best to try and stop McIlroy. 

Even Adam Scott was in the mix along with Xander Schauffele, Ian Poulter and a cursing Tyrrell Hatton. 

Which is why it was such a shame we had to wait to see what happened. 

We missed the first 11 holes of the coverage. 

It was no biggie, Morikawa was only 8-under through those. 

The PGA Tour Champions' SAS Championship coverage was extended because the tournament went into a playoff. 

GolfChannel decided to stick with the coverage as Lee Janzen won. 

In the UK, Sky Sports opted to continue showing the conclusion of the ladies' Aramco Team Series event in New York. 

We're not bashing that, but it would have been nice to have the choice considering we pay our hefty fees to enjoy the golf channel.

Golf Twitter wasn't a happy place.
