alot of the guys dont seem that good to me. Granted they could beat me but they are on a golf show so they have to have something special. Seen to many of them chunk sand shots and fairway shots over and over plus their swings are of average golfers. I also think its a little unfair that they have a former LPGA tour player on the girls team. That lady is good. Other than that I find the show entertaining

I love me some Sara Brown...

shes an aggressive player, I dont think Ive seen her hit a putt short yet. She always rifles them past the hole and most approach shots are above the pin

Well if no one liked the one stroke advantage the men got how about the 2 strokes the ladies got? Sure make the morning trials valuable.

Got to agree with the Carling Coffing comment posted above! (She's big into facebook if anyone is interested.....)


I do like the format of this show so far. The "chip in" bonus allowing you to erase a "benching" will be interesting. The addition of money to the benching challenges is nice..... but picking balls out of a hat for the guys to select their player week one? Weak. I want to see some persuasion, some discussion, and the added pressure on the player who has convinced his teammates he's the one and then has to go out and back it up.

I like how the ladies selected their player. That one guy was red hot for their team that day so they let him go play against that other dude in the benching challenge.

That round guy can play.

shhh.... it wasn't particularly nice. Fella's been on the LPGA tour already for crying out loud. There is something about his swing though, that is unsettling. I can't place it, but it's a bit of a Rocco Mediate, mechanical move through the ball and goofy finish maybe? Can't place it. Maybe less hip and lower body action than I'm used to seeing from players who could beat me 6 and 5. Something is less than classic about that swing.... but it's damn effective!

I heart Sara Brown as well, but I think Christina is a very close second! I think A-God is going to be the MVP on the mens if they win. He seems to have the most talent on that team.

In the last episode, when Andrew and Blake were losing to the two ladies, I figured out what was wrong (or at least looked very odd to me that I couldn't place) with Laura's swing.

It's the early collapse of the left elbow after impact, and the complete collapse of the thing later in the follow through. Still a damn fine player however, beating my ass 6 and 5 probably.

Poor Sara looked REALLY sick. At first, it was kind of "ouch look at her" moment, as we saw her not all painted up and ready for the camera. But as the show progressed and we saw more of her "I'm sick" look, I admit it.... it was kinda good.

More of a Big Break Sandals moment.... but winner Carling Coffing is playing in her LPGA event (entry earned by winning BB Sandals) THIS WEEK. She made the cut at -1 and is in about 40th place going into Saturday. More importantly, did she "birdie dance" on the LPGA Tour? Yep..... albeit a slightly toned down version.

Back to Big Break Domincan Republic..... Why is Laura wearing TENNIS SHOES?

She doesn't need spikes to keep her planted.

I am so tired of seeing F(b)lake need someone to "save his ass".

I as well am cheering for the women this season. The men are just way to aggressive and angry. It's almost like watching the men of Jersey Shore playing golf.

I just hate the whole idea of team play, this isnt the Ryder or Solheim Cup. They should have made it just like Prince Edward Island, everyone plays against everyone and someone gets eliminated on each show. I hate seeing the same people each week over and over again, waters down the whole show and makes the challenges take forever. How will we ever really know who is the best player if players on the same team never have to play against each other?

Southern IL.... Perhaps a ridiculously complicated scoring system will help? They should really get one of those.....

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
