- the driving range hero who impresses in challenges, but is horrible at "real" golf; typically lacks tournament experience (Liam and Anthony, the two assistant club pros who won immunity, are prime candidates)
- the guy with odd mechanics who never does well on skill challenges, but grinds like crazy, and lasts for three episodes past when he should have been eliminated (Sasquatch is on notice)
- the bomber who proves to be more than a long driver, but still isn't developed enough to win it all (there hasn't been a driving challenge yet, but we'll find out who this is when there is)
- the arrogant d-bag who thinks he's the next Tiger Woods, and can fool you into thinking so until you see him stand over a five-foot putt (the Disney season was made up entirely of these guys, and there are several contenders this season as well)
- the bucket of nerves, who always looks to be on the verge of nervous breakdown after the next bad shot (Stu, just Stu)
Hilarious, but accurate!
I guess you're right about the stereotypical guys they get for the show, but I guess, that's why the guys they get are on there, mostly for their personality so they draw ratings. If guys like myself were on there, the show wouldn't be very interesting. My personality and demeanor is not something people would watch. lol
While Liam doesn't have the tournament experience, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess he hangs around a while. I think Liam works with http://www.youtube.com/user/golfrealitybymario
as is seen in this vid:
so I can only assume he really knows his stuff and by that, if he's in a challenge and something goes wrong, I think he won't be nervous because he'll know how to make adjustments on the fly.
