I don't recall anybody asking the golfers to be perfect or even great.  But I think between them they hit like 2 of the first 7 greens.  That's well below perfection and greatness...or even solidness :p

Andy is gone. I did not see that coming, but if u miss back to back 3 foot putts then i guess its your time to leave the show

Murph, the Irish guy, was a guest on one of the original Playing Lessons With the Pros shows, with Rocco Mediate as the pro. He said once during the show that back home (Ireland) you have to keep the

I'm rooting for Mallory .      Not sure how she manages an inside out swing with her attributes ... but it'll be fun to watch.     I think everybody was rooting for that GQ guy to get booted off

I asked them but they ignored me like everyone else.

When watching downhill skiing, would you rather see a bunch of near perfect runs or an agony of defeat crash every other run?  It's funny, but I'm the type of person that watches races for the crashes, but when it comes to golf, I want to see a near perfect game.

Watching skiiing is boring, so the analogy doesn't really work for me. I'd rather watch golf. But it's all a matter of opinion per the BB Ireland finale. I'm not sure what else I can explain other than I really enjoyed it. Some of you guys didn't and that's fine. But if you want to see guys hit tons of GIR, you're better of just watching the major tours. These guys are on the BB because they don't hit enough greens, among other issues.

Just twice. Carling Coffing received two exemptions. The first was a no-cut limited field event, the Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Carling finished last. But she made the cut weeks earlier in the LPGA CVS Pharmacy event. She got into that event via sponsors exemption, one that obviously would not have been granted minus her Big Break victory. Carling's second exemption was the Dubai Ladies Masters on the Ladies European Tour. Carling made the cut and was actually tied for 7th after two rounds. Ironically, she never would have been in that event if she had advanced at Q School, since Q School finals were parallel to the Dubai tournament.

The only other example of a Big Break winner making the cut in the event they directly earned via winning Big Break was Justin Peters, champion of the original Big Break. He got several exemptions on the Canadian Tour and made the cut in the last one.

Didn't Julien make the comment that he played 17 Nationwide events last year and only made 2 cuts? Making 2 cuts on the Nationwide won't get you very far with the big guys, no matter how many exemptions you have.

Yea, something like that. Here's his tournament log from that season.

Given that he was 1 stroke away from his PGA tour card at Q school the year before, I wonder if something (injury, mental fatigue,...) made that a worse than normal year.

At the end of the day, there is a simple reason why none of these contestants are on the LPGA or PGA tour. They aren't good enough. If they were they would have made it through Q school. However most of them are good enough if they have a good day to be respectable out there.

than do it? im also hoping your an experienced links player

was actually very surprised while also somehow being not so surprised. julian anywhere else wouldve had the advantage but his little experience in links play i can only imagine hurt him and his rhythm. mark was striping all day long. i think hes just confident and knows how to play in those conditions..it seemed like he knew where to play it everytime

I've avoided this thread since I just got to watch the finale last night.  It was a great finale IMO, lots of drama and both Mark and Julien seemed to hand the  match to the other.  I like watching great golf and while the overall performance on BB was subpar compared to the "big guys" it was still entertaining.  What most surprised me was the poor shot choices they made during the match.  I realize Mark didn't intend to put the ball in the water but why even risk hitting into a hazard if you dont have to?  I haven't seen any mention of the next BB but I'd guess it's all guys or girls next.

I'm not saying on a regular day I could compete with these guys, but the finale was some terrible golf. Neither one would've broken 80, if they weren't given every putt because the other guy was out of the hole. They both hit 2-4 greens in reg, that is really bad.

I guess I just expected more from two guy who have aspirations of becoming legitimate players. From all the shows I saw, they aren't even close.

Cheers to Julien however for snagging Mallory!

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
