A question for those of you who have watched past seasons of the show: Do the contestants always have as much experience as this seasons seem to have?
I pictured the show as being more of an American Idol type thing where the contestants were "nobody's" in need of a "Big Break." But there seems to be quite a few players this season who have had web.com tour experience, or who have even had professional wins, and one that competed in the US Open a couple of years ago. Also, based on the few episodes from last season that I saw, most of those girls were pretty inexperienced players, so I assumed it was always like that.
I'm liking watching Sasquatch and Robert (I think that's his name, the guy that works in a pro shop and has no experience) and starting to really pull for both of them lately. (Still a big fan of Rick and his attitude though)
I have not seen every season, but I have watched about 2/3 of them. This season seems to have more talented players to me. In the last few episodes guys were actually beaten by birdies instead of by making their own stupid mistakes. (There were a couple of short missed putts, but those happen). I don't know specifically if the players have more experience, but the quality of play has been high so far.
Unrelated question: Why does everyone have a problem with Chan. I have been working on my computer while watching these, so maybe I missed something? As far as I can tell he is a little neurotic and nerdy, but other than that I don't get the hate. Is he just not cool enough for these guys or is there some jerky behavior I missed.
I am surprised Anthony has made it this far. He has an ugly swing and more than that, it seems yippy. Anyone else see the same thing?
