I'm confused about Bennet. He definitely acts like a jerk, but at the same time he's kinda playing the game the way he needs to - as in "every man for himself". Conversely, I think Nicole is also a bit of a jerk, at least on the course.

I agree, the guy is a jerk. Bad attitude and changing things around. Why single yourself out at the beginning? Make friends and then go all out with the "one against all" mentality in the later shows. Right now, I'm betting on Matt, he appears to have the most game. As far as the ladies, I'll root for Mallory.

I think this as well....and I suppose this is what I was trying to imply about my first post about Bennet...

Nina Rodriguez played golf from the same place that I took it up; San Jose State University. SJ is actually her home town. I'd be kidding myself if I said she was an exception: there are plenty of other talented ladies around these parts.

Damn good program @ my school it seems.

He finished +4 and missed the cut.  I feel bad for him.  After seeing how emotional he was when he got that exemption, it showed how hard it is for players like him to make it and stay on the tour.

As much as I love golf, I can't imagine what it is like to grind away week after week without the same resources that top tour players have.

Tried to watch it last night but there are way too many commercial breaks. Haven't checked to see if it available 'on demand' yet.

I'm with ya there. I don't think they show even 10 mins of the show at any one time before they go to commercial. On a side note, I love me some Nina.

If nothing else, the timing worked out well for Anthony, like a high level warm up. I'd guess he will be in PGA Q School first stage in a few weeks. Last year he made it to second stage.

I looked at his Timberlake stats and one of them was shocking: He averaged 338.5 yards on the first day, 2nd longest in the entire field. I don't remember anything resembling that type of distance during his two Big Break appearances at Mesquite and Dominican Republic.

Otherwise, his ball striking was poor, a low percentage of greens in regulation. And he made far too many mistakes. That seems to be the theme among Big Break players who play big tour events; they can't limit the above-par holes. Ryann has the same tendency but she typically overcomes it with high percentage of birdies. Gerina (Mendoza) Piller actually is the steadiest of the Big Break alums. She has a chance at a long LPGA career, particularly if she increases her birdie rate just enough.

Mallory proved she's a better golfer than they were giving her credit for this week.  At first I questioning Bennets heart with his decision to sit out of the competition but it appears he was really sick.

I agree, Mallory stepped up and did what she needed to do. I was surprised to see Matt go so early though. I really thought he would be one of the finalists. Matt can pretty much blame Mark for being in elimination in the first place. I was shocked to see him get so excited over the other team celebrating their win the immunity challenge.

I was also expecting Matt to go on further. I'm happy Mallory is still around though.

    • Here is my question with this. If you consider it not holed, how do you continue the hole? If you mark this ball, pull it out to clean it, and then replace it, it will definitely fall in the hole. Horizontally, more than half of the ball is "over" or "in" the cup. I say its a hole in one.
    • thanks very much Looks like Oakley is the consensus choice        
    • Quite good actually. I mean, obviously I am not that good at golf, but for me it is one of the best parts. It helps that my 53 degree only goes 90 yards, but I play that club everything from 25-90 yards, and when I am at 90 yards sometimes I play a PW or even a 9 iron depending on the situation. Inside of 25, I play the club that will get me on the green and ball rolling fastest. That could be anything from a 5 iron down to my 53. The only time I use the 58 is sand, or if I absolutely have to get over something. Not wedges, but at my local exec course, on hole 9, they have the tees completely shut down and moved all the tees to the bottom of the tiered tee box. The hole plays 220-260 depending on the tees normally, but right now it is playing about 215. I have been playing partial driver because I have to really get a hold of a 4W to get to the green. My driver has been between 230-240 (on good strikes), so I just take a bit off, and I have been hitting the green regularly with this method. I've never understood how people have so much trouble with flighted shots, partial shots, or anything of the like. I'm not going to say that I am sniping down pins when I am inside 80 yards, but I'm typically within a 20-25 ft circle from there, which is a big improvement over my full swings.
    • I use Oakley Prism lenses. They are excellent.
    • I’m a 13 and I can’t hit a driver consistently within a 40 yard window. I know single digit players that can’t do this. It’s just basic mathematics really. A 40 yard window at 280 yards is not the same as a 40 yard window at 230 yards. The margin of error is much smaller at longer distances. High handicap players will struggle if they played on a cow pasture. That part has little to do with swing speed. Swing speed can tell you someone’s potential, but if I gave you two player’s swing speed and nothing else, you’re not going to be able to pick out who the better player is, or the player that hits the ball farther on average. I swing faster than Jim Furyk, but he is longer than me on average off the tee and far more accurate. How is your partial wedge game? Serious question. It’s not that easy to dial back or just simply swing slower. You end up changing all sorts of different variables, and guess what? You still hit misses.
