Big Break Invitational

41 posts in this topic

I am a big fan of the Big Break series. I have watched it for the last 6-7 seasons. I am very curious to see who will make the field of 40 (20 men, 20 women). I think what Big Break is attempting is very high risk/high reward. I applaud the out of the box thinking.

We know these three are playings:

Tommy Gaines (PGA)

Gerina Piller (top LPGA)

Jackie Stoelting (most recent winner)

I would like to see the following players:

Shannon Fish

Will Lowery

Taylor Collins

Isaac (big guy)

Sadena Parks

Sounds fun.  Multi format 4 day competition.  But they'll be playing holes of golf seems like.  Even better.

I'm a big fan too, but this last season dampened that quite a bit.

Don't mind your list, except Will Lowery. I felt like his game was soooo far away from a PGA level. He hit very few good shots during his time on the show if I remember correctly.

I imagine Brian Cooper will be playing too because they showed him on the commercial.

His season (Greenbrier) was my favorite of the ones I've seen so far, with Lepp and the guy who won (sorry, forgot his name) being both really solid players.  Would love to see those guys in it.

Mark something. ;)

You asked, and you were rewarded. Sara Brown has been added to the field. So was Sadena Parks.

Love te Big Break. I really like the NFL Big Break. I've seen everyone from the first. I remember a few years ago Matt Every got punked the first show. He was a 4 time All American from the University of Florida (my alma mater). He won his first PGA tourny this year.

I don't ever need to see Will Lowery again.  The show is already going to be good now that Mammory Blackwelder is back!

Showing this week on Golf Channel.  They brought back contestants from previous shows.  Below is a piece on Mallory Blackwelder.

I don't know about you, but I would have liked the camera to stay on the golfer instead! :-P

Blackwelder nearly makes ace, misses out on $25K

LAKE OCONEE, Ga. – Earning her LPGA card for the 2015 season, getting married and winning $25K for a hole-in-one at the Big Break Invitational Reynolds Plantation in a three-week span? The fairytale had to end somewhere.

Mallory Blackwelder nearly knocked in her 6-iron from 160 yards on the par-3 17th at the Great Waters Course during Wednesday's round. Impressive in and of itself. Even more impressive because of what she did with her 6-iron on the previous hole.

"I doubled 16," Blackwelder said. "I had just chunk-hooked my 6-iron into the water at 16, and then it was a 6-iron again on 17. At that point, I honestly didn’t think I was gonna make (the cut). So I literally, before I hit, I was like 'OK, if I don’t make the cut, at least $25K would be nice.’ So I’m standing behind it thinking I’ll just go right at it."

And right at it, she went.



Blackwelder ended up making birdie at 17, which earned her three points in the Modified Stableford format and ultimately secured her position inside the top 12, advancing her to match play on Thursday.

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
