Course Architecture on TV?

Lorne Rubenstein, in the Globe and Mail in Canada, wrote up a piece on Friday that talked with Geoff Shackelford as expert on the lack of architecture on the airwaves during a golf tournament. The piece laments the missed opportunities for the networks as they glaze over how holes were originally designed, changed/bastardized over time, and what kind of strategy is required to do well on the hole. I've gone after the whole golf telecast as lacking information from all angles, but I just wanted to point this specific piece out as an indication of what is missing from golf on TV.
