Hey, guys. This is just a reminder that the 19th season of Big Break airs tonight at 9PM Eastern, so remember to set your DVRs if you're a fan. The setting looks beautiful as usual.

It's a mixed, team competition but with one eventual champion. I already suspect a letdown from the stellar Big Break Greenbrier, but it's hard to live up to such an entertaining season like that one was.

I havent watched the first episode yet (DVR'd) but Matt Galloway used to work at my club - was a nice guy but I dont think he likes me because of my hatred of Fowler.

I forgot to watch the first episode and forgot to DVR it.  I'm assuming I should be able to find a re-air prior to next weeks episode.

I am sure golf channel will show re-runs all week long.  And then I'm sure next week the hour leading up to the new episode will prob be last weeks episode too.

Here is our golf pro Jason Seymour for TeamOlmec. A little shaky tonight, but hit some good shots and helped his team get through the elimination challenge

I like the cast a lot. There are some interesting personalities (Jason, Liebelei, Chad, Lindsey, and Rob), good golfers (Brent, Stefani, and Jay) and hots (6. McKenzie, 5. Lindsey, 4. Stefani, 3. Liebelei, 2. Emily, ans 1. Taylor).

I think my buddy Matthew is in trouble with 2 strikes against his team. He is a good golfer but does not have the obnoxious personality to survive on a reality show.

I really liked how the wall challenge was set up this year. One question I would have is could any tour pro do these challenges with their eyes closed? (my thought would be yes)

Some rough play in the first elimination.  It's a decent show so far.

For the one team, if either Jason (sorry, I doubt he's winning a lot of fans) or the blond girl (cute, lives with Mom, little dogs and beading, claimed a strong short game) went home, I wouldn't have been too disappointed.  The girl ended up leaving.

The other team - just rough to see 3 of 4 leave.  Would have preferred Emily stay over another skinny guy in a beard.  Wow, the meltdown for the other guy was hard to watch, made me think of my game.

I looks like there's 2 guys that are decent, maybe 1 girl in there unless more are sandbagging.  And lots of eye candy in the girls.  And that's about it.  Not much depth.

Hahaha, this sums up almost every Big Break with girls involved for me. Fun looking challenges with eye candy.

    • I don't think that's what most people mean by playing ready golf.  If you and a slow-walking player both hit in the fairway and you hit farther, I agree it's rude to just walk quickly out, set up, and hit your ball.  Except for the oldest, slowest players, that player is almost certainly going to be trying to start a pre-shot routine while you're finishing yours.  And even if not, the point of ready golf is to make sure – assuming you're not stuck behind other groups – you play close to as fast as the slowest walking player in your group would solo, not to finish holes in sequence, fastest player to slowest player. For example, when playing with slow older players, both of us in the fairway, I might walk past the older players ball if there's a good tree line to walk along or the like, and post up near my ball's level while waiting for the slower player to hit, then have a quicker walk to my ball, with the hope being that I can go through my pre-shot and hit my shot in not much more time than it takes the slower player to watch his shot, put his club back, and walk up to where my ball is. Around the green I liberally play my ball if I'm ready well before anyone else even if I'm not farthest from the hole.  And like I said above, I think first ready tees off unless someone has birdied or better.  But between the tee and near green, I'm only playing out of turn when another player in my group has hit a really crappy shot and is off in the woods/grass looking for a ball, I'm not on or near that player's line to the hole/chip out, and I can easily go ahead and play my ball before the other player will be (even really that close to) ready to hit.

    • Crazy, I stayed at Orange Lake Resort back in 2001.  I had unlimited miniature golf for the entire week, I think I played 54 rounds or something during my week stay. I love their full golf attire, shoes included, I wore a bathing suit when I played.
    • Yup. Players are authorized to ride a cart during their round(s) only when there are shuttles (as mentioned in the article) or to be taken back to re-hit a ball under stroke and distance penalties. Basically, you have to walk the golf course once, and that includes any side trips like going to the restroom, going to get a drink from a neighboring hole's concessions area, etc.  
    • Seems like the kind of thing that a young kid would start doing when trying to swing really fast. Seems like it would be very hard to learn how to do this and keep your swing in control. My guess is that Justin Thomas started doing this as a kid, and it's just part of his swing now.
