Yeah.  I'm not sure I understand why there isn't a mostly quantitative answer to this question.  Multitudes of LPGA players play numerous rounds on courses whose ratings are known or which can be reasonably estimated.  Lydia Ko has a 69.5 stroke average on those courses, the women around 50th average over 72 and women around 100th average over 74.  I've never had a handicap and I'm not versed in how to compute one but I surmise the ones who average 74 would be pretty close...
Brandon seemed a little abrasive in his interview sessions last night, and he showed a bit of temper after a shot he didn't like, too.  He didn't seem that most of the time, though.
I'm into cycling nowadays and I've been away from golf for a while, only coming in here to read comments on the Big Break finale.  Interesting article but the two activities aren't really interchangeable.  I had gotten away from golf when the opportunities to play were reduced after a move and job change, and I took up cycling sometime later.  I never did break 100 in golf but I got managed to bike 100 miles a couple times.
Sure he should pay, that sounds like it was his fault.  But he should only pay the reasonable value of the GPS, not $475 if that's what a new one costs.
Yeah.  It's not shaping up to be a good show because I don't think Fiamma has a prayer.
There were only a few years where I played regularly and I seldom play any more, but I follow the pros.  I watch the majors and at least a handful of other tournaments (like The Players this past weekend).  I watch the LPGA sometimes and I've followed The Big Break for a few years.  I didn't always think so, but golf is good TV unless someone is really running away with the tournament.
I played there a lot when I was stationed at Wright-Patt, when it was called the Kitty course, it was great for the level I was at.  I played Hara Greens occasionally, too, but it got in horrible shape one year and probably never came back.  The 9-hole course on base was good, too, and just a little longer.
When I was starting I had the advantage of having a couple of nice executive courses in the town I was living in.  One par 3 and 4 holes, with the par 4s being up to about 300 yards.  The other was a par 3 course, but the 9th and 18 were par 4s (about 330 and 400 yards, respectively).  About half of the par 3 holes on the second course were over 200 yards, so they played like par 4s (at least!) to the people who played there.  Those two courses were great for a beginner,...
As a really bad golfer I can't say this idea appeals to me because most of the frustration in golf arises as you hack your way down the fairway to get to the green.  Most bad golfers don't putt into the hole anyway, they get to a point they figure is close enough and call it good.  I could see something like this working as a stunt maybe, a promotional event.  At best.
I'm no fan of Mary, but I don't see how two birdies in two holes of the elimination challenge is a tailspin.
