Big Break: Greenbrier - Page 15

post #253 of 267

Man I cant believe Mark won. It sucks for James because he was playing lights out for most of the round. Just goes to show it aint over till its over. Either one definitely deserved to win, both played great golf throughout the season. I remember early on I figured Mark could very well win it do to his consistency. Great season, agreed on the best finale ever too. James will be on the Web.com tour if he sticks and pursues his goals.

That was a great final!  I added up each of their scores.  James shot 67 and Mark shot 65.  I think they both played really impressive golf.

Great final show with very well played golf. I think that the better balanced, more consistent swing from Mark just stood up to the pressure better. I hope that James is looping for Mark at the next Greenbrier tournament as it seemed that the admiration for each others game was genuine. I don't know if James would be a good caddy (that is for Mark to decide), but it would certainly generate some publicity with the winner and the runner up out there together.

Yeah, that was impressive and fun to watch.  Not sure about the tee or pin locations, but since the course itself was setup for this years Greenbrier at the time, that is even more impressive.

Question ...

 

When this year's Greenbrier rolls around and they, presumably, show the first couple of rounds - at least - on the Golf Channel ... will they make any effort to show him on the telecasts?  I can't remember them ever doing that in the past, but I have never watched the Big Break before, so I wouldn't have recognized anybody anyway.

 

Now that I have some vested interest in this guy from watching this show, I'd love to watch him perform during the tournament next year.

Guess I tuned into the right show -- the final!

 

3 down/5 to go and the tide turns.

 

James' swing was so quick on the downswing that I couldn't track it by casually watching.

 

It's possible Mark put too much pressure on himself from the portion I viewed, until the last 5 holes. I guess when the short game clicks, and the putts start falling - you can lighten up.  :-)

 

It was a TGC show worth watching...

Did Mark win it or did James lose it?

hard to admit it was fun watching golf on TV.  But that was a great final.  That it took an eagle to stay in it and then win really says a lot.  I was rooting for James, but these two were my favorites so either way it was fun.  Following individual players and getting commentary that way is SO much more interesting than the same old PGA broadcasts jumping all over the place with dull announcers talking about this or that putt.

 

the reunion show, I think, really brought out the real personalities, though.  So we had a club slammer, someone a little snotty, two dorks, two that were a bit bullyish (at least in regards to the dorks), but even each of them had a good story and their positives far outweighed the negatives, IMO.  And the rest seemed just like decent guys overall.  Most Popular = $5000 - nice gesture to split it up.

I thought the clips before one of the commercial breaks set Liam up to look like a jerk, but he responded well and explained.

This is definitely one of the better Big Break seasons and more specifically, probably the best ending episode ever.

post #264 of 267

This was the first Big Break that I've ever watched (and I started watching the episode Chan was eliminated).

 

I think it was superbly done.  Even my wife, who loathes golf, seemed to be decently interested once the finale came around.

 

Frankly, it was just refreshing to see a reality show where it seemed like the final four were just genuinely good dudes, and were all pulling for each other.  I'm glad that the producers didn't try to add conflict.

The next one airs in May, they said during the reunion show, but they didn't specify where it was being shot, nor whether it would be ladies-only, co-ed, or "all-star" edition. Since the last three seasons have been men, women, and co-ed respectively, I suspect the next season will feature players from past competitions.

This may be my favorite season of all Big Breaks...............they finally found some guys who could play, and play they did!   Wow.....I really enjoyed this season.  This season had the best final 4 ever......(I hated to see any of them lose)
