Big Break Invitational

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

I am a big fan of the Big Break series. I have watched it for the last 6-7 seasons. I am very curious to see who will make the field of 40 (20 men, 20 women). I think what Big Break is attempting is very high risk/high reward. I applaud the out of the box thinking. 

 

We know these three are playings:

 

Tommy Gaines (PGA)

Gerina Piller (top LPGA)

Jackie Stoelting (most recent winner)

 

I would like to see the following players:

 

Shannon Fish

Will Lowery

Taylor Collins

Isaac (big guy)

Sadena Parks

Sounds fun.  Multi format 4 day competition.  But they'll be playing holes of golf seems like.  Even better.

 

 

I'm a big fan too, but this last season dampened that quite a bit.

Don't mind your list, except Will Lowery. I felt like his game was soooo far away from a PGA level. He hit very few good shots during his time on the show if I remember correctly.

I imagine Brian Cooper will be playing too because they showed him on the commercial.

 

His season (Greenbrier) was my favorite of the ones I've seen so far, with Lepp and the guy who won (sorry, forgot his name) being both really solid players.  Would love to see those guys in it.

 

Mark something. ;)

You asked, and you were rewarded. Sara Brown has been added to the field. So was Sadena Parks.

Love te Big Break. I really like the NFL Big Break. I've seen everyone from the first. I remember a few years ago Matt Every got punked the first show. He was a 4 time All American from the University of Florida (my alma mater). He won his first PGA tourny this year.

Never heard of this but looks interesting. Bummed that old seasons aren't on Netflix!

post #16 of 41

I'd watch this.

 

I'd like to see Isaac Sanchez, James Lapp, Brian Cooper, Michael Michaelides, Shannon Fish, and Lindsey Bergeon.

I don't ever need to see Will Lowery again.  The show is already going to be good now that Mammory Blackwelder is back!

Showing this week on Golf Channel.  They brought back contestants from previous shows.  Below is a piece on Mallory Blackwelder.

 

 

I don't know about you, but I would have liked the camera to stay on the golfer instead!:-P

Blackwelder nearly makes ace, misses out on $25K

LAKE OCONEE, Ga. – Earning her LPGA card for the 2015 season, getting married and winning $25K for a hole-in-one at the Big Break Invitational Reynolds Plantation in a three-week span? The fairytale had to end somewhere.

Mallory Blackwelder nearly knocked in her 6-iron from 160 yards on the par-3 17th at the Great Waters Course during Wednesday's round. Impressive in and of itself. Even more impressive because of what she did with her 6-iron on the previous hole.

"I doubled 16," Blackwelder said. "I had just chunk-hooked my 6-iron into the water at 16, and then it was a 6-iron again on 17. At that point, I honestly didn’t think I was gonna make (the cut). So I literally, before I hit, I was like 'OK, if I don’t make the cut, at least $25K would be nice.’ So I’m standing behind it thinking I’ll just go right at it."

And right at it, she went.



Blackwelder ended up making birdie at 17, which earned her three points in the Modified Stableford format and ultimately secured her position inside the top 12, advancing her to match play on Thursday.
