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.

I agree to a point, but I thought the risk/reward aspect was an interesting addition. It does seem like Big Break loves to make it's contestants try to pull off the remarkable shot though.

I feel like Seve Ballesteros would've been great on Big Break.

Hell, Seve would have been great on Big Break, little Break or even Medium Break! Seve was the shot maker man.

Every week I'm starting to like Andrew even more. I like his game but his mouth drives me nuts.

Different strokes for different folks: Every week I'm liking Andrew even less!

That cocky look on his face and that smirk just pisses me off watching the show. I can respect his game though, as thus far he has proven worthy.

With JB Holmes stats ranking from 100 yards being what it is, awful, BB actually did the players a favor.

I can't stand Blake. Dude, STFU, already. Enough with the tantrums and the cursing. We get it. You fold like a house of cards whenever its time to make an important shot. Yeah, you hung out with James Nitties, big whooping deal. At least Nitties could actually play when he was on BB and considering he was coming off a major injury, it was even more impressive. You, on the other hand, stink, period.

Andrew is much better than I thought. So is JR.

I'm not much of a Blake fan either, but I can't wait to see Andrew go!

It usually comes down to who can handle adversity the best. All golfers lose thier touch or swing from time to time but being a professional is about handling that adversity and playing through it.

Blake is very lucky to still be there because he has shown a few times that he doesn't handle being under the gun very well.

Poor K-max, talk about total desintegration!

I predict Andrew will eventually follow this path of imploding when the chips are down. His time will come!

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.

Exact same feelings. Lots of people have been liking Blake from the start and hating Andrew, but I have the EXACT opposite feeling now. All I have heard from Blake since the show started is how Mike and him are the two most talented players on the show, and him running his mouth about who he thinks are the weakest players on the show. Until he hits ONE shot that shows he is better player than the bottom 5 on the show, and doesnt struggle to avoid elimination on every show, then he should shut his mouth and quit talking (and he is saying that to Andrew!). I heard all the stories about Andrew before the show started and thought I was going to hate him, but after watching this show I really like him now. He talks a lot, but from what I have seen its not like he is being cocky or really even that annoying at all. I know we only see a fraction of whats actually taped, but what did he say this week that made that idiot Blake blow up so bad? All he was saying (from what we could see) was how he agreed with their choice of laying up and how it was a smart choice. and it was. From 230 out with a 2 shot lead, lay up, just put something on the green somewhere and 2 putt and you force the guy who ended up getting eliminated to stick a shot from 230 out and make the putt just to tie. How is that not a smart play? And people can hate on Andrew, but all I have seen from him so far is clutch. When has he NOT produced yet on this show? I havent really seen him do anything bad under pressure yet. He just goes up and hits it with confidence. He doesnt look like a scared puppy either like 75% of the other guys do. Tony Finau and Andrew to me so far seem like the contenders for the win. Even Gipper who I think is very talented has seemed nervous and on edge at times. I predict Blake will be off the show next week, as he should. One of the worst players on the show, in my opinion.

I think Blake or Kevin will be gone soon. I don't care for Blake's attitude, but I think he's got more game than Kevin. Has Kevin even made a decent swing yet?

If you read their profiles on The Golf Channel website it talks about how Blake played for the University of Colorado but was suspended because of a disagreement with the coach. Why does that no surprise me? I'm seeing a pattern. It also talks about how he had a good job but quit before he signed the contract so he could turn professional and now he couldn't be happier playing on the Hooters and TarHeel Tour. So far in 2009 he's made $6,800 on the Hooters tour and I couldn't find his name on the TarHeel Tour site. I'm not sure how "happy" I'd be making that.

Andrew Guiliani just failed to advance past Q-School Stage One by two strokes at the Stonebridge Ranch CC in McKinney,Texas.

As for the show, I hope Blake conquers his demons soon, but that's probably wishful thinking on my part. The big meltdown is probably coming, and I plan on diving into a fox hole when it happens.

I think Giuliani is just about as obnoxious as can be and I think Blake was right to call him out. Strike one for Andrew's NYY hats, that is enough to make you dislike him right away. Strike two for his motor mouth which so obviously and abundantly p*sses off the other contestants. OK, he stepped up with his game a couple of nights ago but I cannot see him rattling Vincent or Tony in the long run. My Mom was visiting last night and watched and thought Giuliani was cocky and annoyign right away.

K-Max didn't seem to have much game so I am not surprised that he is gone. I see Kevin going next as I think some of his shots in the final were less than stellar, huge blocks to the right. I sitll cannot believe that so many guys were missing that putt too.

I can just feel a huge Blake meltdown!

I can picture a club flying or something of that sort. I used to be really critical of Andrew, but not so much anymore. I dont like him on the show, but Blake is just taking anger to another level. Geeeesh... relax tough guy.

Blake also failed to advance last week. In fact, for supposedly the most talented group in Big Break history they aren't showing much in first stage Q School. Andreas shot 83 this week, including a 10 on a par 5, and withdrew after one round. I like the looks of Vincent's game but he's had two poor rounds in a row, high 70s, and is a longshot to advance, with one round remaining. Tony Finau has a chance. He was just outside the number heading into today.

I still think Hugo Leon has the most potential of any player in the recent Big Breaks. The guy makes tons of birdies. He opened with 62 last week and easily advanced, although Erik Compton blew past him in that sectional. *** Blake is most irked by Giuliani's persistent comments like, "Keep your head up," after a bad shot. I didn't fully grasp that until listening to Golfgal's interview with Blake this week. Mike and Blake say they remain friends with everyone from the show, except Giuliani. I watched the replay last night and at one point Blake says to Andrew, "You say the same things..." He's referring to those remarks after a bad shot, which he views as insincere. Seems trifling to me, like going out of your way to locate an irritation, based on a predetermined opinion. Blake says Giuliani admitted he was trying to use Big Break to rebuild his reputation.

I think James Nitties has the most potential. Or is it no longer potential if he's already had far more success than anyone else?

Yeah, that just seems like a stupid thing to worry about.

It's like playing a competition in rain. I liked it because I knew I could forget about the rain and play whatever was given to me. I also knew that my opponent likely was going to be bothered by the rain at least once, and that gave me an advantage. In other words, Blake should worry about his own game and not someone else's yapping. It's not like Giuliani is talking while he's playing his shots or within earshot of anyone who is preparing to hit.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
