That putt Mark sank was very impressive.  Had to be the shot of the season?  I remember Anthony made a bomb putt in elimination... But Marks putt was more difficult given he had to putt up that false front and I believe his ball wasn't even on the putting surface... He was putting from the fariway - which really made it difficult to get the putt rolling on the proper pace.  Very impressive - especially after he just missed those two putts inside 5ft on the previous holes.

Seeing Isaac lose was tough, he seems like a really nice guy.  James and Mark will be a great finale.  James is playing some of the best golf I've seen a Big Breaker play so he's got to be the one to beat at this point.

they all seem pretty decent, but I just started at the round of 4.  this time.....That returning contestant didn't seem to be the same caliber, but it wasn't much exposure and his game wasn't much of a contest these final guys.

 

I fully expected Isaac to make that last put - great short game, totally against my initial bias when I first saw him.  I thought he'd be a big hitter and just ok.  can't make assumptions in this game.

 

but the distance these guys all hit just blows my mind away - I really need to go take some lessons, none of them look even close to fit really, just average.

You can tell James is confident right now, hasn't really used the sauce in competition.

I knew Channy was going to be the guy. I guess you guys didn't watch the show on the net to know he was going back in for an episode. It was probably the low point of the big break greenbriar, bringing chan back. They hardly even covered his return. The fact that they showed him talking about holing it to win 5k... like he could just pull that shot out of his ass anytime.

 

I have to say I was bummed that Isaac got the ax but you can only play with fire so much before you get burned. James continues to hold my "bromance". I wish I had someone that was that much fun to play golf with here.... The golf channel ought to just hire him on as analyst to replace Charlie Rymer.

I'm all for that lol. Golf channel could use someone like James.

I have a ton of respect for "Squatch" as a person.  You never saw him cursing or throwing clubs.........he was a class act from beginning to end.

Seems like they all had a good amount of class. I really like Stuart from the start but either way, I'm happy that it wasn't Brian that won. He is a good golfer but his attitude will surely slow him down. Not just in golf but if he handles many of life's situations as he did on the show... he will be a very frowned upon individual.

The change up.. I don't think I'm good enough to do that.. but it sure looks like fun to try...

I agree.. I liked him too cause he wasn't flashy, didn't have all kinds of high end clubs, didn't wear expensive clothes, just looked like a regular Joe. And he had a good attitude

Agreed.

The reunion show revealed that our champion earned full Web.com Tour privileges for 2013 in Q-School, which should surprise no one. I think the runner-up will be at that level sooner rather than later, as well.

Really? That's awesome.

 

Agreed on James. He's easily the best runner-up I've seen on this show, and it's really not even close.

Stiffs don't win NCAA D-I national titles, and stiffs don't shoot 66-68 on PGA Tour-prepped venues after not playing competitive golf for several years.
