I'll go along with Vincent as well. He has all around game and it seems that he'd have to have a really off day to get eliminated.

Definitely glad Ed got the boot....cant stand the cockiness. I'm cheering for Mike Perez...seems like a cool guy and it would be cool to see him compete with him brother..

Did you see Mike's race against the stock car? It was a pretty cool video, but he wasn't happy with what was published. Check out the video and then

listen to what Mike had to say about it. He was not amused

Yup ;) Mike is faster than any stock car! I'd like to see that car today - but I think it's in pieces. Go Mikey!

Sounds like the producers did some sketchy editing to get attention. If the golfer wins, no golfer cares, if the stock car wins then they get the golfers' attention. Pretty sleezy.

Hi GolfGal, Wondered when you'd show up. Always enjoy your input on BB.

Hi Duffy! Thanks for such a nice comment. I'll try and come around a bit more. I have been interviewing 4 players this season - Vincent, Kevin, Blake and Tony. I'll add Mike to the mix this week as well.

Blake seems to have a good game but he is carrying a lot of stress out on to the course with him,its affecting his ability to play to his full potential.He needs to forget about Andrew and just play his game.Thing is if Andrew hits a good shot its stuck in Blakes head.

I'm rooting for Blake to depart. That's the type who annoys me, someone who defaults quickly to profanity and inserts tension and conflict with an edge to it, as if it's personal and he can't let go.

Someone like Brian Skatell is a riot and a class act compared to what I've seen from Blake so far. It was somewhat understandable when he was on the brink of elimination, but in tonight's episode he's safe on the bench and still allowed innocuous remarks from Giuliani to get on his nerves and prompt asinine body language and replies.

Anyway, in tonight's show that was the greatest display of glass breaking I've ever seen, but Big Break-caliber putting and weak and cautious play in the elimination. K-Max looked to be the odd man out, based on his strained facial expression every time they showed him.

Was JB Holmes necessary?

I really dislike blake and vincent. I mean andrew can be annoying at times, but come on get off the dude's back for once and let it gooooooooo. Leave my fellow yankees and giants fan alone :) I want the Finau's to win. Seem really nice and humble. Next to go... will be mike perez. his game is really iffy to me.

I don't know if JB Holmes was necessary, per se, but I thought the "beat the pro" challenge was pretty cool how they determined the radius of the circles they needed to get inside of, rather than just picking two random distances.


I'd say that having a professional golfer as a guest on the show was a little more relevant than having Chipper Jones on the 2nd episode though...


Sucks to see K-Max go out so early. I didn't really see that much game from him, but he turned out to be a pretty likeable contestant. You've got to be able to get that shot in elimination up and over a tree from 150 out though, either that or accept that you don't have that shot in your bag and chip out.

I enjoyed last nights episode though, I thought the challenges were interesting, and I really like when elimination gives everyone a chance to show more of their skill set, instead of just having to get up and down.

I think the Blake/Andrew rivalry will be good for ratings - hopefully they both stick around. I'd definitely like to play a round and drink some beer with Blake, he seems like someone I'd get along with on the course. Andrew has got some game, but he's an annoying little bastard.

Andrew grew on me this week. Blake or whomever was stupid to disagree with his strategy. From 230 I liked the play of laying up, too - particularly when he made a 3.

I didn't see this week's episode yet, but if Andrew's biggest sin is having diarrhea of the mouth, I'm not going to kill him for it. Heck, I like Lee Trevino and he'd talk to the air as it went by. And that's coming from someone that doesn't say a lot on the course.

I wonder if he actually hit those two shots, without needing a mulliganed edit? In Ka'anapali they used Brittany Lincicome and Brittany Lang in similar fashion and one of the contestants -- Lori Atsedes -- seemed to take particular delight at the air date in pointing out that one of the Brittanys completely missed the green in her first attempt.

Regardless, Big Break should have used a decent quote from J.B, just ask him something to produce a smile and display some personality. Instead, all we got was a wisecrack from one contestant saying J.B. wasn't very big, and several bland, "Nice shot," comments. The elimination round was plagued by the trees. You don't need trees with players of this caliber. I've noticed that time after time in Big Break, that challenges and eliminations suffer when obstacles or weird angles are introduced close to the tee ground. It leads to less drama, not more. Hitting over water would have been plenty. Find the most challenging water hole and move the players back, hitting the same shot but about 40 yards longer each time. That would have been an interesting comparison, in nerves and club/shot selection.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
