Speaking of past competitors...does anybody know how Petey (from the last season of Big Break)'s career has been coming along?  The Indian dude that got booted, then brought back, then eliminated again.

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

although i do agree with you on the matchup i feel as if this season if anything is about knowing how to be creative, and having the feel for the game to cope with the conditions. you cant have little golf skill and still be able to hit a thin fairway or green a shot with 30-40 mph winds. or hitting those fulls shots the same distance while trying to keep the ball low. gotta land the ball precisely in a spot where you know you have enough room for the release, or it will just roll for days. also being able to putt from up to 60 feet from off the green is quite impressive. phil would do fantastic cause he can putt from just about anywhere. irish/scottish links golf is pure golf. although id love to play it, it would be a dream, idk if i have the confidence in my putter yet to will myself to an even half decent score. you saw it alot this show. making putts during the tough conditions and making good reads. takes focus and mental strength. thats kinda why i think mark can win this. hes a straight brawler against the course. sending haymakers. but julian isnt far off..we saw that lastnight. its gonna be a good matchup and i think it could pan out to be more emotional and intense than the show has been over the past few weeks

Wow. Canadians have game. Derek Gillespie made some moves too and won PEI.

If Julien wins, I think I've figured out the secret to winnings these co-ed Big Break seasons now ....

I'm good friends with Sara Brown. I grew up with Taryn Durham. It was fun for me to watch that season because I knew a lot of them. I didn't watch too much prior to that. I did watch Indian Wells and was happy to see David Byrne win. he seems like a great guy.

Per capita, no, we really don't. We're a winter sports nation, and even then countries like Finland and Sweden produce top end hockey talent at a higher rate. Canada claims to have more "avid" golfers than any other country, but compare our production of top golfers to a country like Australia. I wonder how the top 100 Canadians would fare against the top 100 Aussies? What if we got pit our top 100 against their 1000th through 1100th ranked players. I might plunk a $2 coin on Canada in that event . . . might.

Oh that. Yeah, our winters are very long and cold so we learn at a young age that doubling up increases our survival rates.

Still waiting to see some good golf from these two. They have shown flashes, but to say either one of them has a chance on any sort of tour is a joke from the terrible golf I have seen. Anyway, should be a fun final show to watch.

Considering Julien won the top prize already, I say he should throw his match against Mark.

Now, from the preview it sounds like there's going to be an 18 hole final.  That's awesome, I've been waiting to just see lots of golf from these guys.   Anyone know if its match or stroke play... (Julien's gonna get plenty of stroke play already.. oh yeah!..)

I dunno if she's a gold digger, but I think she's far more likely to be dating the winner than the runner-up. Also, I'm going with the Twitter theory (used to success by someone here for BB Indian Wells) to say Julien wins it. He's been very active over the last few weeks.

i figured julian had a better chance to win only because last week he played very strong...he looked confident.

mark has the heart and will to win it....they both have self destructive tendencies as well. which from the commercials...seems to be very much possible to happen. which one though, that im unsure of..

    • 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.
