Well, the Big Break III preview show was on tonight (I guess technically last night now, as it's past midnight). You can watch the preview, apparently, here . The contestants are:
  • Danielle Amiee, 28, a touring professional from Newport Beach, CA. She's going to be nicknamed "Blondie," inheriting the title from last season's winner. She's quite athletic, has a good action, but seems to be your typical blonde ditz and fritz.
  • Felicia Brown, 28, a contract specialist for the Department of Defense from Redondo Beach, CA. She's the only black woman competing (token, anyone?). She's got a good swing and has been ranked highly in her teens.
  • Tasha Browner, 23, a touring pro and golf shop manager from Tarzana, CA. We'll call her the underdog. An upright, outside swing seems to get the job done, though.
  • Pamela Crikelair, 24, a golf newcomer and aspiring professional from Highland Beach, FL via Westchester County, NY. I think she's a bit too new to the game to really worry about playing on the LPGA Tour. She's been at it three years. Some shot or another has got to trip her up eventually. Solid swing for a "newbie" though.
  • Debbie Dahmer, 41, a DJ company owner and touring professional, from Escondido, CA. Solid swing, but creeping up in years. That's a plus and a minus in my book.
  • Jan Dowling, 23, a touring professional from Dallas, Texas, via Bradford, Ontario, Canada. Kiran thinks she's first to go. I've gotta think of a good nickname for her, what with that late-50's era hairstyle.
  • Cindy Miller, 48, an LPGA teaching professional, from Silver Creek, NY. Very solid swing, but she's 48. Can she keep up with the girls?
  • Valeria Ochoa, 24, an assistant golf pro and mother of three from Miramar, FL., via Medillin, Colombia. My sentimental pick, as I've played golf at her course and saw her practicing her putting before I moved up here to Erie. Heck, she may have been practicing for the BBIII.
  • Sarah Sasse, 23, a touring professional from Lincoln, NE. Highly ranked collegiate player that won some awards. Simple, solid swing.
  • Liz Uthoff, 25, a teaching and touring professional from St. Louis, MO. Eh. Made absolutely no impression on me.

I don't think any of the ladies are qualified to do much on the LPGA Tour, and frankly, I'm not sure what an exemption to one tournament could really get you anyway. I mean... ya ain't gonna finish top whatever and be exempt the next year, y'know?

Vince Cellini (don't like him) and Stephanie Sparks (don't care for her) host. Hey, anybody beats Lesley Swanson and Rick Smith, and Stephanie won the North & South Am, so she can play.

A few thoughts having seen the first elimination show:
  • Valeria hit some stinkers. They all did, actually. Including Kuehne.
  • 4 points total? On a chip, a pitch, and a flop? And that beat a 6 and a 7?
  • Felicia is easily the most annoying gal on the show
  • Cellini and Sparks are 10x better than Smith and Swanson
  • The old woman stepped up. Kudos to her.

Cindy (the LPGA ex-pro) and Felicia both look like good picks for the finals.

I'm not sure if an ex-LPGA pro should be allowed to compete against the other competitors. I'm secretly rooting for Pamela because she's from my "neck of the woods", although her skill level is not at the same level. Danielle commented about how other women always see her for her beauty and don't talk to her very much. She must have had problems playing with other kids early on... Valeria Ochoa - related to Lorena??

Well, I didn't watch the first episode, and Kill Bill Vol. 2 was on yesterday, so I didn't watch the second either... That being the case, I'm still sticking with my original prediction of Valeria winning with Felicia and the Big 12 college girl rounding out the final three.

I think Cindy is waiting to make her move. She was once an LPGA player, so don't think for a moment that she isn't calculating her next move.

Although I think Liz has a shot, she is a bit erratic. Whoever zones it in close to the pin every time will win the exemption. Best wishes, Stacy
Liz!

Personally, I can't see Cindy's making it past next week. She came up huge on the uneven lies challenge, but she couldn't stick either a 100 yard or 80 yard wedge, and it sounds like there's going to be a long drive/power competition next week. We shall see.

My money's on DJ Deb, yeah she hit a couple of bad shots, but she also nailed more shots any of the other girls.

Was it just me or was Deb bouncing throughout her swing? Like she'd go "up down start-backswing up down up down up down start downswing up down contact up down up down up down finish follow-through"?

I replayed some of her shots on the TiVo, and every time it's like she's dancing to some remix or something. Very weird.

Valeria Ochoa, 24, an assistant golf pro and mother of three from Miramar, FL., via Medillin, Colombia. My sentimental pick, as I've played golf at her course and saw her practicing her putting before I moved up here to Erie. Heck, she may have been practicing for the BBIII.

Now that I'm watching the show, I can see why she is your "sentimental" pick. I wouldn't mind watching her practice her putting either.

I find myself laughing at some of the shots these girls make (or don't) and other times my jaw dropping. It's almost embarrassing to know that I don't have half of the accuracy as they do. I'm pulling for Valeria and Sarah (is she the college girl?), and I like Pamela quite a bit, too (WHAT A SHOT!). I despise Danielle and Felicia. I don't think I can take her screaming at the ball after every single shot much more.

Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead!

Felicia sucked, and thank goodness her big mouth and bad golf game got sent packing. 56' from 70 yards out? Bear in mind that 70 yards is 210 feet, so she misjudged her shot by nearly 30%.

Awesome shot by Pam (though her first two were weak, eh?). Sarah fluctuates too - couldn't get a single point from a greenside bunker, but squeaks through and hits a good shot now and then.

I'm just glad I don't have to listen to her yelling at the ball after every shot, even the ones five yards off line she'd scream, "Get in the hole I said!" Don't know what I'd do if I ever played with someone doing that.

Guess that shot wasn't Chester A. Washington . . . whatever the heck that means. Now that I've seen a couple of episodes, I'm not too impressed with many of their swings other than Pam. She's the only one whose action I really like, maybe Danielle's. Valeria may be easy on the eyes, but her swing is

I think everyone is happy that Felicia is gone.

'Cept maybe Felicia. But she was worse than Tasha. I wonder how Kelli Kuehne "heard" of Felicia... maybe that she was the most overrated windbag ever.

OK, so I was wrong. I'd hardly call Deb a fan favorite, but she's an affable gal, I suppose.

What was most shocking was the 1 point 8 "golfers" got on two greens, a little wind or not. Do any of them have a knockdown in their bags?

What I found funniest about tonight's episode that everyone kept commenting on how much quieter it was now that Felicia was not around.

I'm glad Jan snuck through.

The previews basically say this:
1) sasse chokes
2) danielle can't putt

I think Liz has played the worst. I'm gonna go with Danielle, though. She's got the least skills of anyone left, I think. Liz barely has an edge on her though, so I'll take her for place. My show horse? Valeria.

I'm picking Pam to beat Valeria to win it all. See seems to have the most natural ability, but doesn't seem real confident. If they have any challenges where length is a big factor, she should dominate.
