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).

my get up and go musta got up and went..

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.

    • There are more qualified people who have already responded in this thread about overall practice, but I think you should prioritize practicing the driver if you have a short warm-up before a round. Like if you hit 15-20 balls (as I often do), I prioritize the driver because it's going to give me the best prediction of my ball flight that particular day. As far as overall practice goes, I'll defer to other answers.
    • The last several pages have been somewhat entertaining to read, but let's not forget the most important point. LIV is entirely funded by the Saudi government. It's not going to be profitable. It literally can't be, and we all know this. The Saudi government is not Norway, where the sovereign wealth fund is far more likely to benefit its citizens than a specific elite. This is a country of ~35million run by tribal members numbering roughly ~30thousand. They are constructing this league, and getting into bed with WWE, for a specific reason. THIS IS ALL THE INFO THAT IS NEEDED. I'm not interested at all in anti-trust law or anything of that nature.  You take the blood money, I'm not calling for your prosecution. I've watched Korn Ferry Tour events. Dudes can play better than I can. I'll watch them. Go miss a six foot putt while ZZ Top or some other shit old band plays over the loud speakers at your exhibition.
    • Yea, that is the point. I was 100% aware of what I was doing 😉
    • You literally just said that same thing to me.
