- I'm sure the producers didn't mind Emily's tight fitting shirts that couldn't hide her excitement in the moment, would be fun to see her and Lefty golf together .
- Rob was pure reality television heel, guys like him usually don't last long because their game isn't as strong as their personality.
- Jason is another "personality" that won't last long, he's already alienated himself from the rest of the cast with his intentional slow play tactics and inability to compromise in shot selection with his team.
- Mac was a peppy but usually annoying character who's game couldn't cover the checks her mouth wrote.
Yeah, very formulaic. The Jason guy is filling the same exact role that Chan filled last season. I'm sure if I watched previous seasons, I'd be able to connect all of the characters as well. This season has been blah to me (I've even missed a couple of episodes) compared to last, but I did watch this last episode and thought it was pretty good.
I don't know all the names yet but was really impressed with the guy that got 3 birdies in the elimination match. As much as all of these guys talk about the unbelievable pressure of this show season after season, that was pretty impressive.
Also, the guy that won the other match played solid, as did the cute blonde ... she could have easily made any or all of those putts and stayed on the show.
