The Big Break "Indian Wells"
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
It looks like a pretty good mix. I was really hoping the annoying rancher would get knocked off first thing though. I hate chest pounders that talk all kinds of crap to instigate a fight when they know they're protected. He may just be a victim of creative editing, but I can't stand him.
I haven't seen enough of their games to say who I think will win. My favorite personalities are Carl and David.
There's a fellow sand trapper on this season...
I know when the Golf Channel does these searches, they're looking for players that are scratch or better. While there are a few talented guys on the show this season, there are a few guys that make me wonder the kind of course they are "scratch" at. Don't get me wrong, I've been around golf enough to know that you can't always judge someones game by their swing, but let's be honest, most of the time if you're a scratch golfer or better, you've got a pretty good swing.
During the driving contest I heard the guy from Israel state that at one time he was the best golfer in the country. I'm not sure how many top golfers are in Israel but with that swing? Really? You were the best golfer in the country?
I don't know, maybe someone will surprise me. I just don't see a few of these guys lasting long.

Favorites- David (short canadian), Russel (marine), Will (dreads)
Dislike- That one Texan (not sure of his name), The guy with that glasses that arrived last
And also, was anyone else wary of the 1/2 stroke that was given during the elimination challenge? I feel like if you're on the big break, it should be a level playing field and no one should start off at a disadvantage.
Its a lot more fun of a show to watch when its all good looking women :\
I agree that the 1/2 stroke thing was BS. Also I hope they can improve their games, seemed like most of them missed the fairway in the 2nd challenge by a ton!
The cash seems cool but if everything is based heavily off of the cash it seems to me like some people could just get so far behind and be in danger of getting cut week after week while others pull ahead.
I understand the whole "mix" of guys. If they were all stoic, focused players it'd be boring TV. I've always wondered about some of the golfers who get on here though. I'm pretty sure I have better game than some I've seen over the years. It's my understanding you had to be a 3 or lower. It'll be a somewhat entertaining season given the money situation. And yeah, the 1/2 stroke thing was just to keep from having a tie. Pretty lame.
