Man I wish there was a way someone not in the US could watch this show, it sounds like it is pretty decent entertainment. You'd think golf channel would let you stream it off their website. All you can watch are the 2-3 min clips behind the scenes!

Anyway, good luck Russell will keep an eye on your progress!

I'm glad you hung in there to get to show 3. So how hard was it watching Floyd melt down in the bunker? It was awful watching it on tv but must have been really bad in person. It speaks to the pressure that the show must create under those circumstances.

Agreed, congrats on getting to show #3 Russell! I would be willing to bet that almost everyone in this forum has had a meltdown like Floyd did at some point but we didn't do it on tv.  I can't imagine how that must have felt for him.

Great job!  I felt so bad for Floyd.  That was really hard to watch.  I can't imagine what it was like live.

+1 I was shocked that a guy who's been around golf for so long didn't have the composure to step out of the bunker and clear his head before the next shot.  Rushing the next three shots is something I would have likely done but wouldn't expect someone like him to.

Good question. With all the editing that I'm sure goes on, you wonder if guys on the show think wtf? when they see how they're portrayed(sp).

I'm sure the editors do their best to make the show exciting by using the casts most outrageous comments to create a "character".  Each comment on it's own probably isn't a good reflection on their true personality, but as the show progresses you should see trends in their comments which as a whole could be a better indicator of who they really are.

Most reality show participants that were portrayed in a neutral or positive way claim the shows portrayed them accurately.   Those that played the villian or came across in a negative way claim it was creative editing and not a good portrayal of who they are.  In some cases that may be true, but I doubt it.

    • In 30+ years of playing, there have only been a couple of people that I've felt like laughing at.   One was "Howie" who was the most depressing person I've ever met.   Every word that came out of his mouth was just so negative and down, not angry, just absolutely Debbie Downer stuff.   After a while it was just so obvious that I couldn't stop thinking about it and every time he said something, or hit a bad shot, I had to turn away.   He was a horrible player, or at least having a really bad day. But...the other person I've felt like laughing at, several times, is my father-in-law.   We don't speak now, but that's because his wife has ruined everything (although he's pretty bad himself now).  However we used to play golf a lot.  He's got that slow burn like Judge Smails from Caddyshack.   He's fine for a while, but when it goes off the rails at some point he loses his ****.  We were playing a course and I was having a really good day, and he wasn't.  He started crabbing big time on the 11th hole when he was in and out and back in (multiple times) a huge horseshoe bunker around the green.   I knew it was coming after that.   Duck hook off the next couple of tees and he finally lost it on the 14th tee.   He duck hooked it after 30 feet into the weeds in front of the tee box.   Then he comically threw his driver in after it and had to find it.   This is after a few holes of hearing him beat himself up, muttering and complaining.  I was trying my hardest not to laugh all thru the 14th hole, somehow made par.   Then I started laughing on the 15th tee and blew one OB.   It's just comical watch him come unglued.    He pretty much hits a big banana ball.   So he aims left.   It comes apart when his miss is to roll his hands over and hit a low hook.   So frequently he is aimed left and then hooks it left, usually into a bunch of trees about 60 yards off the tee.   He'll do it like 8 times in a row.  It's funny up until he says things like "I'm just the biggest idiot who ever picked up a golf club", then I start to low grade feel sorry for him. OMG, yes.   I admit if I lose a couple of nice balls in a round I start to go looking when I have time, but never at the expense of the other players.   Last month we saw someone fishing for balls on #10 and the three people he was with just left him and started to the next hole.  Don't blame them. I never comment on someone else's game.   If someone if a good player, I don't mind hearing something they notice is wrong, but I don't feel qualified to comment on what someone else is doing nor do I think most people want to hear it.  Especially since I've seen some really weird swings, yet these people know where the ball is going and score well.
    • For me was when I started hitting consistent playable drives from the box.  
    • The worst for me is subtle directed drops of tips/hints or what "his pro" told him..when he is a worse player than you..far worse.  From what I've learned over the years is STFU and play.  This post refers to my first round after years away.  We were playing in a foursome..work group.  One of the youngest guys in our group..all decked out in Dry-Fit Nike Golf/X-Armor (or is it Armor X) down to the TW golf shoes.  He starts marking his ball for alignment and said I should also do this and that it helps with putting..LMFAO..I just smiled.   He saw my bag (I have mostly Mizuno/Titleist stuff)..he said the best driver are Mizuno...LMFAO again..just smiled.  As we play, he was constantly reminding the group what he was putting for (this is for par, birdie, etc..) which became annoying after the 2nd hole..yikes.

    • KIT FAQ'S | Full Swing Golf Frequently Asked Questions Presale FAQs No. Reservations cost $100 for each model.  Yes, reservation fees are refunded with reservation cancellation by e-mailing kitsupport@fullswing.com. A reminder at this... @david_wedzik and I put $100 each down on a pre-order and our "exclusive" pre-order window opens the 25th through the 27th next week. We're looking at dropping $3899 (each, if we want one each like we had planned), and I'm not sure why I'd drop that — or even another $1899 — when the Mevo+ does those 16 things. The bold in the list above are done by the Mevo+ (as well as "Flight Time" and "Shot Shape" and "Spin Loft"), and so the Full Swing Kit adds… Club Path (likely measured), and then two likely calculated data points in face angle and face to path. I haven't seen any reviews of these things, of course. I don't even know if they work indoors to start, because elsewhere in the email, it says that a software update will be available to enable some modes in Q1 2022, and it may have implied that this included indoor mode (but may have just included E6 integration? I can't be sure.) It requires ten feet behind the golfer, while the Mevo+ will work with seven to eight. Has anyone seen any good reviews of the thing? Harry Brandt is getting one tomorrow or the next day, though, so I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
