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.
