I wonder how the 2 winners are going to do when they play a tourney on the LPGA and the PGA..?

 

My guess is not well, but I like both, so I'll be rooting for them for sure. 

 

Here's a run-down of how all the past Big Break champions have fared in their exemptions. Overall, the results haven't been good, but a few have made the cut, and Tommy Gainey finished T8, but that was a Nationwide Tour event. Still a darn good result though, and the highest any Big Breaker has finished so far.

Until she learns how to putt (better), she won't do very well.

Same, not good to flat out terrible. especially Emily. Though I think she's a better golfer than she's demonstrated on BB. I play at CO National quite a bit, that's the home course for the CU Buffs. I've played right behind some of her teammates and those girls can play. Looking at her CU bio she's evidently the best they've had so who knows.

Unfortunately, with teams of three, the finale probably should have been two hours with double the holes. That would have made for more fun meltdowns or a great rally by Team Doleman. Either way, I'd probably be entertained. While I love watching great golf, I also for whatever reason enjoyed watching Doleman top his tee shot. I guess that makes me a bit of a jerk, but I can live with that. :-P

 

 

But despite all the flaws, I'm glad the "good guys" won! Haha :-D

I agree.

Yeah but I think his point was that all he needed was 2 putts from that point. That wouldn't be unheard of to concede a 2 putt from 7 feet. Plus, it's all about the production and the editing ... Don't forget that too. :)

 

Yeah, I actually thought the did that with a creative edit.  Brian had a short putt that was not conceded later in the show - and he did not complain about that one.  I thought they probably took his comment from that scenario and put it with the other putt.  Either way, no one should ever complain about not getting a putt conceded.  If it is so easy it should be conceded - then might as well putt it.  

 

Emily missed her obligatory short putt, but so did 2 other pros.  So can't single her out really.  

 

Hated to see Shannon play that poorly right at the end.  She had been one of the most consistent all show.  But I was pulling for Team Red anyway.  Rice is cooler than Doleman.  Isaac is cooler than Brian.  Emily is cooler than Shannon - even though Shannon is pretty cool, too. 

 

Doleman is terrible.  In retrospect, I really can't believe all that drama he caused in the beginning.  I thought he must be really good.  He is not.

post #294 of 307

Did anyone notice that Shannon 'asked' Emily if one putt was conceded?  Just another sign of a crappy day.

 

I would have loved to see her come out with that cut-throat attitude this last time.  Cool woman.

 

 

Oh - Last Break Men's is also done now.  Let's just say Will didn't win.

could fish have hated doleman more?  team blue hated doleman.  

 

doleman deserved it

post #296 of 307

I have to say that it surprises me on how inconsistent the play is from episode to episode, or even shot to shot, by some of these players. You watch someone almost hole out their approach, but then in the very next challenge they'll go on to chunk a wedge and not even hit the green from 100 yards out.

 

The most surprising part to me was that not one team was able to hit the green past 155 yards in the challenge where they kept going back until everyone on a team missed the green.

What GD said.  He was referring to him forcing him to two putt from 6 feet or so, which is why he said, "then I'm gonna make you watch this one go in."  A reference to the fact that he didn't need to make it, but he wanted to send the message that he could.  The irony of course, being that they couldn't make a single putt inside 10 feet later on when they needed it.

Word.  

 

As expected (at least by me), the biggest advantage was Rice>>>Doleman.  I mean that crap got ugly to the point I was glad they sat out the final hole.  The other blue members had chances to tie and even win (if they made both birdie attempts in Q2 and Q3, but they couldn't do it.  The deciding shot/hole was actually Brian's 1st putt on the 1st hole.  They played each other pretty much even from there, even though Blue team had the better approach shots.

My understanding is that it's somewhat commonplace for opponents to request a "good-good" concession.  Seems odd to people like you and me, but not that abnormal for them.

That's why I asked how they would do when they got to play in a LPGA and PGA tourney, when there's hundreds of people watching. I would think that would be more daunting than being on the Big Break. Anyone else agree, or not..?

I was glad to see Team Rice win. Jerry and Isaac seem like really cool guys, and I like Emily too. She's not the greatest golfer, but she seemed like a good teammate and made nice shots from time to time.

 

Although I was glad to see the red team win, I don't really think it's right that they didn't have to beat Team Doleman twice. I mean they were the only team to not suffer a loss, and the entire competition has been double-elimination. Team Doleman should have had to play last week instead of getting the day off, and then if they still went into the championship undefeated then they should have had to be beaten twice. I know the show was likely limited to a certain number of episodes due to TV restrictions and such, but it just doesn't really seem fair that every other team got to suffer a loss and come back, but when Doleman's team loses their first match it's over.

I did not like either of the girs unfortunately. Shannon talked like she was baked out of her mind and not very attractive. Emily was so annoying and always kissing up to Jeeeeeeerry. What is the deal with her eyes? She has no eyebrows, which I can get over, but now eyelashes!

I kinda think it would be the other way around.  In fact, I believe some pros (LPGA and PGA) have been on the show and commented that the challenges were a bit more intimidating than playing during a tournament round.  Think about it:

 

1) You're 1 of ~100 golfers.

2) You won't have a big gallery following you.

3) The camera won't be on you at all times.

4) You know you can recover from one crappy shot to make a decent score, as opposed to going home immediately following like happens during some challenges.

 

Basically, until you make the final few groups during a championship round, or until you hold the lead in a tournament, I imagine tournament golf is less intimidating than having a million people watching you (or a team depending on you) having to get up and down from 80 yards at a producer's whim.

Emily is drop dead hot. You're veeeeeeeeerry wrong.

We will agree to disagree. FWIW, I think she is heinous.
post #304 of 307

all in all, I thought the series was entertaining.     Contrary to popular belief here, I liked Doleman - he rose as the leader of the team & pulled them together amidst all the drama & offered full support of his team mates.        I just wish Mallories team would have made it to the finals   :w00t:

I am of this line of thinking. Emily is banging.

She hasn't responded to any of my 349 emails yet. I wonder if she has MySpace.
