As a person, I would really hate to be around Mary. She seems to lack any manners on and off the course and many of her quotes have been very insulting and degrading towards others. I don't think I need to repeat all of the things Mary has said or done throughout the series. However there are a few things that we should consider before we continually bash Mary:
1) Mary's "personality" may had something to do with exaggerations from Golf Channel. Remember, many of our perceptions of Mary come from the interviews. In many of the interviews, Golf Channel gives the ladies excessive amounts of alcohol to "loosen them up". This may cause people to say things that they normally may not say. In addition, Golf Channel only airs about one to minutes of each player's interview/confessional footage when it actually takes upwards of an hour to shoot. Since they are showing such a small sample of the total interviews, they can piece together different things and cause the interviews to be misconstrued. Several examples of this have been seen in past seasons, where player comments were clearly put out of place purposely to make a point and exaggerate something.
2) Despite the antics, when it comes down to it, Mary has not shown to be that bad of a golfer. Yes, she is very streaky, but she has had her share of good shots and clearly outplayed Tonya in this week's elimination challenge. I know that many of you guys wanted Tonya to win but in the end, I want the person who plays the better golf to win and in this case, Mary clearly hit the better shots. Talk aside, Mary really hasn't shown to be a weak link. She may be cocky, but I don't have a major problem with it if she says shes going to win a challenge and actually wins it.
Again, Mary is most certainly not my favorite player on this season of the Big Break by any means a, but I just want you guys to see her in a different light because there may be a reason she's doing what she's doing.
