I just completed my BBIV application , and man is it thorough. Fifty-three questions plus an essay, but why not at least give myself a chance. Why not have everyone on the forum apply just for the heck of it. If one of us gets on, we can plug TST.com till people's ears bleed ! I'd really like to see if the show really is more difficult than a tournament. Hopefully we'll see.

Sweet, thanks for the link. I was looking for the application right after BBII ended. I applied to BBII, thought it was great but never heard back. Are you guys going to include a photo? I think that's what I was missing last time. An essay though huh? Man, did I HATE English classes in school.

If I were going to apply (I'm not, I think it's more fun to comment on those that do ), I'd watch all the episodes where they show part of the interviews. Look at how the people who didn't make it acted and look at how the people who did make it acted.

TGC wants good television first and foremost, I bet. There will be plenty of good golfers applying - tons - but how many have a personality that makes for good TV?

Type A personalities, people. Everyone hated Don in BBII, but had that guy gone after episode II, TGC would have felt the impact.

Got it, I'll just shake like I've got Parkinson's syndrome every time I need to tee up a ball. After any possible ruling, I'll call for an official and take an hour to plead my case and then I'll throw a fit and break my clubs after every errant shot!

I'll be a shoe-in!

Practice saying "Pull the tape tight!

Pull it tight! " twenty times before going to bed.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
