Shouldn't subpar be a good thing?

I don't really see a strong nexus between the target demographic of the CW and Golf.

CW has different owner now and a different focus. Think “people who watch News Nation”.

And reruns of shows so old that they were references on Seinfeld.

CW was losing money hand over fist for several years. There demo wasn't watching much either. The CWDC universe lost viewers every year and every new show was a bomb. It's amazing, they were not changed before this.

Eh, the CW never made money as a network since the second season of Supernatural, it was never their model.

The money came from selling their programming to the local stations and streaming.

If you pay 40 golfers $3m each to play a tournament and then pay a TV network to broadcast it - and no-one watches, can it still be called sports washing?

The only time I watch any PGA golf (not this LIV crap) is the back nine on the last day. Just get me to that point and I'll tune in.

Was Tiger in it because other then him pretty much everyone under 50 doesn't care about golf. Minuture golf? Now that's a different story

You are so incredibly wrong

Golf isn't a mainstream sport. The only reason broadcast even cares about it is its a small audience that's very, very lucrative to target advertising at, since they're willing to throw lots of money away at random luxury goods. So viewing numbers are pretty much always going to be terrible for it; most people don't care, and if anything despise the sport.

I'll watch an occasional majors final day and the Ryder cup and that's about it. Hating a pretty tame relaxing sport is kinda funny. It's not like it's hard to ignore if it's not for you

As a kid, its very bored dudes looking at fields all day and slowly shuffling around when I'd rather they were showing anything else. It didn't help that "Sunday after cartoons" was prime Golf time.

Ok, how so?, I'm hardly a golf expert, educate me.
