Big Break - Ireland - Page 11

post #181 of 198

I don't recall anybody asking the golfers to be perfect or even great.  But I think between them they hit like 2 of the first 7 greens.  That's well below perfection and greatness...or even solidness :p

I asked them but they ignored me like everyone else.

When watching downhill skiing, would you rather see a bunch of near perfect runs or an agony of defeat crash every other run?  It's funny, but I'm the type of person that watches races for the crashes, but when it comes to golf, I want to see a near perfect game.

 

Watching skiiing is boring, so the analogy doesn't really work for me. I'd rather watch golf. But it's all a matter of opinion per the BB Ireland finale. I'm not sure what else I can explain other than I really enjoyed it. Some of you guys didn't and that's fine. But if you want to see guys hit tons of GIR, you're better of just watching the major tours. These guys are on the BB because they don't hit enough greens, among other issues.

Just twice. Carling Coffing received two exemptions. The first was a no-cut limited field event, the Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Carling finished last. But she made the cut weeks earlier in the LPGA CVS Pharmacy event. She got into that event via sponsors exemption, one that obviously would not have been granted minus her Big Break victory. Carling's second exemption was the Dubai Ladies Masters on the Ladies European Tour. Carling made the cut and was actually tied for 7th after two rounds. Ironically, she never would have been in that event if she had advanced at Q School, since Q School finals were parallel to the Dubai tournament.

 

The only other example of a Big Break winner making the cut in the event they directly earned via winning Big Break was Justin Peters, champion of the original Big Break. He got several exemptions on the Canadian Tour and made the cut in the last one.

Didn't Julien make the comment that he played 17 Nationwide events last year and only made 2 cuts? Making 2 cuts on the Nationwide won't get you very far with the big guys, no matter how many exemptions you have.

Yea, something like that. Here's his tournament log from that season.

Given that he was 1 stroke away from his PGA tour card at Q school the year before, I wonder if something (injury, mental fatigue,...) made that a worse than normal year.

 

At the end of the day, there is a simple reason why none of these contestants are on the LPGA or PGA tour. They aren't good enough. If they were they would have made it through Q school. However most of them are good enough if they have a good day to be respectable out there.

than do it? im also hoping your an experienced links player

 

 

 

was actually very surprised while also somehow being not so surprised. julian anywhere else wouldve had the advantage but his little experience in links play i can only imagine hurt him and his rhythm. mark was striping all day long. i think hes just confident and knows how to play in those conditions..it seemed like he knew where to play it everytime

I've avoided this thread since I just got to watch the finale last night.  It was a great finale IMO, lots of drama and both Mark and Julien seemed to hand the  match to the other.  I like watching great golf and while the overall performance on BB was subpar compared to the "big guys" it was still entertaining.  What most surprised me was the poor shot choices they made during the match.  I realize Mark didn't intend to put the ball in the water but why even risk hitting into a hazard if you dont have to?  I haven't seen any mention of the next BB but I'd guess it's all guys or girls next. 

post #190 of 198

I'm not saying on a regular day I could compete with these guys, but the finale was some terrible golf. Neither one would've broken 80, if they weren't given every putt because the other guy was out of the hole. They both hit 2-4 greens in reg, that is really bad.

I guess I just expected more from two guy who have aspirations of becoming legitimate players. From all the shows I saw, they aren't even close.

Cheers to Julien however for snagging Mallory!  c3_clap.gif
