I know long drive is not golf, but I’m shocked at how bad Maurice Allen is. He can barely keep his 9-iron on the course.

I don't like going to top golf and don't want to watch people play top golf. 

I thought it was mildly entertaining to play, but just WAY TOO expensive. My wife and I went to Top Golf Las Vegas with another couple and spent like $250 and the wives didn't even play. We all did have a few beverages though. :beer:

It looks like I'm the only person in the golfing world who did not get bored watching Shotmakers.

Hey, to each their own, I have a buddy who loves the movie Battlefield Earth.

I watched the first episode, and am halfway through the second.

So boring.

Right? I tried to watch it and outside of the admittedly nice eye candy, I just couldn’t get into it.

So I watched the first 2 episodes this week and it was ok.  Not the worst show on TV and not the best.

The second show was a bit better.  Not everyone going for the trench.  A lil strategy to get the highest scores.  Most of the girls are cute and some got smart and switched the tight spandex from black to grey... made for better viewing!  :beer:

I will keep DVR'ing and watch when I can.  TV nowadays is pretty lame so we need some OK shows to fill the nights.  They don't always have a tourney on every night.

A lot are dissing on Big Break.  Not sure why.  I liked that show.  Best was when Mel Collins was hosting.  She is HOT!  That was a cool series with neat challenges and they moved around on holes with some hard shots.  I wish it was in GC archives but it is not available on demand.

I haven't seen this yet, though I do have it recorded.   It seems interesting that everyone was just "going for the trench" as you were saying.    I'm assuming the trench is just the back of the range, right? 

I'm surprised the games aren't more specific than that.  such as "hit the blue 3 times in a row" or something like that.   When I was at TopGolf in Arizona, that trench was like 210 out.   All I would do is aim a 5-iron at the white, if it landed in, great, if it missed it rolled into the back for points.     I don't know..   maybe this TopGolf is different or something?

Have only seen the ad's so far, but it should be worth a look.  Those Topgolf facilities look pretty fun.  Do they also offer an option to play various courses around the world?

I was rather bored with it. Funny how every single female competing was a smoke show pretty much. I liked Big Break. This one’s a snooze fest.

Finally getting around to watching this.  First, the bleach blond on the blue team is quite the smoke show.

secondly, for all these “shotmakers”, how is no only playing a fade into the trench.  Like, a 7 iron fading over the blue target is money. 

And, obviously, if you’re going at a target, green is an easy answer.  How many times do they need to miss the blue, before they realize the extra points aren’t worth the risk of the zero?

Just watched the replays on Golf Channel. What a terrible show.  Then again, I had expectations of watching good golfers.  We need to go back to Big Break if anything.

Lets just put some cameras up on a local driving range.

I would probably watch this..

    • Bronco Billy. @boogielicious will know this one.....
    • Like new Bushnell Tour V4 rangefinder. No slope option. Comes with case that will attach to a golf bag, BUT it is not the case it originally came with.  $299 new selling for $215 Shipped
    • Clint Eastwood, great actor, producer, and bada**! What is you favorite Clint Eastwood moment, scene, etc ? This is a bit lengthy before you get to the "Go ahead, make my day" comment that has become famous and always reminds you of Clint:  
    • I need to find that check box, though solo rounds have been rare lately, with so many more people out there!  I have been guilty of posting solo rounds, but I am convinced to stop.  I followed the rules either way (during play, I understand that posting a solo round was not following the rules), so my HC was probably changed very little.  But, it should still be done right.  I need to refresh on how many holes can be solo, and still be counted, for instance when I'm paired with someone who stops after nine, and then I join another group that I catch a couple holes later.
    • Pickled eggs are a big seller round these ways.  Chilli, whole black peppercorns, bay leaves and mustard seed with a malt vinegar based pickling juice. They go well with a pint.
