If you put them on TV or the LPGA tour, sure, they don't particularly stand out. But if you see them on the range, you're still doing double takes.
(It reminds me of the one cute girl in my engineering school. She may have been a 6 or 7 in a room full of Delta Delta Delta's, but in a room full of smelly, computer nerd males, she wsa a freaking 11!!)
spot on. (Double take......Erik nailed it, take a fit woman (already a good thing and rare enough in this game) and put here in a nice athletic outfit and she already up two points - I'd hesitate to say 'golf' outfits are nice, but tennis ones are pretty decent. The 'fit' part is what does it)
This episode, they seemed to have lost their regular makeup tech for the interviews and accidentally employed a clown to do the job.
However, it seems they are taking the cutest girl each week and sending her home. Pretty soon, there won't be anything to watch. Certainly not the golf here. Too bad, the first day there was some really nice approach shots and I was hoping they had a better skill set than lately.
Ok - that post is about all the sexist guff I can provide at this point.
I agree with most of you, this is some atrocious golf for some people that are aspiring tour pro's.
I read it as there are a lot of mini-tours out there and people that 'think' they can make it who are fooling themselves and their families into bankruptcy. They are being taken advantage of, frankly. It's very clear that there are the top few tours in the world (the big league), and a handful of other serious ones (the minors) and the rest just as well be the local leagues full of wannabes.
It's maybe two seasons I've seen so far where the 'real thing' is in the cast (like Two Gloves) and the rest of the cast knew it right away. So at least these 'pros' know where they really are despite the dialogue in the shows.
