Big Break Invitational

41 posts in this topic

I am a big fan of the Big Break series. I have watched it for the last 6-7 seasons. I am very curious to see who will make the field of 40 (20 men, 20 women). I think what Big Break is attempting is very high risk/high reward. I applaud the out of the box thinking.

We know these three are playings:

Tommy Gaines (PGA)

Gerina Piller (top LPGA)

Jackie Stoelting (most recent winner)

I would like to see the following players:

Shannon Fish

Will Lowery

Taylor Collins

Isaac (big guy)

Sadena Parks

Sounds fun.  Multi format 4 day competition.  But they'll be playing holes of golf seems like.  Even better.

I'm a big fan too, but this last season dampened that quite a bit.

Don't mind your list, except Will Lowery. I felt like his game was soooo far away from a PGA level. He hit very few good shots during his time on the show if I remember correctly.

I imagine Brian Cooper will be playing too because they showed him on the commercial.

His season (Greenbrier) was my favorite of the ones I've seen so far, with Lepp and the guy who won (sorry, forgot his name) being both really solid players.  Would love to see those guys in it.

Mark something. ;)

You asked, and you were rewarded. Sara Brown has been added to the field. So was Sadena Parks.

Love te Big Break. I really like the NFL Big Break. I've seen everyone from the first. I remember a few years ago Matt Every got punked the first show. He was a 4 time All American from the University of Florida (my alma mater). He won his first PGA tourny this year.

I don't ever need to see Will Lowery again.  The show is already going to be good now that Mammory Blackwelder is back!

Showing this week on Golf Channel.  They brought back contestants from previous shows.  Below is a piece on Mallory Blackwelder.

I don't know about you, but I would have liked the camera to stay on the golfer instead! :-P

Blackwelder nearly makes ace, misses out on $25K

LAKE OCONEE, Ga. – Earning her LPGA card for the 2015 season, getting married and winning $25K for a hole-in-one at the Big Break Invitational Reynolds Plantation in a three-week span? The fairytale had to end somewhere.

Mallory Blackwelder nearly knocked in her 6-iron from 160 yards on the par-3 17th at the Great Waters Course during Wednesday's round. Impressive in and of itself. Even more impressive because of what she did with her 6-iron on the previous hole.

"I doubled 16," Blackwelder said. "I had just chunk-hooked my 6-iron into the water at 16, and then it was a 6-iron again on 17. At that point, I honestly didn’t think I was gonna make (the cut). So I literally, before I hit, I was like 'OK, if I don’t make the cut, at least $25K would be nice.’ So I’m standing behind it thinking I’ll just go right at it."

And right at it, she went.



Blackwelder ended up making birdie at 17, which earned her three points in the Modified Stableford format and ultimately secured her position inside the top 12, advancing her to match play on Thursday.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
