  1. People have said that about a number of seasons. I think there have been far worse seasons than this one. Remember the girl that played barefoot?
  2. Highlight the text below to see (in case someone wants to watch the tape-delayed broadcast): Jones holed out on the playoff hole to win.
  3. Ranking it high doesn't really make a lot of sense, since each episode is repeated a bunch of times throughout the week. You might end up missing a show that airs only once to record a show that is repeated often at a wide variety of times.
  4. The embedded ball rule can only be used when the grass is cut to fairway length or shorter. His path out of the bunker would have been over the rough, so I don't think the rule could be used.
  5. The money does do you good, however, if you remain on the show. If you spend half your cash in one elimination challenge, then you will often be in a half stroke hole the next time you go to an elimination challenge, since the person with the higher dollar total gets the half stroke. It is a sucker bet plain and simple. The only thing that a second half stroke does is buy you a tie when you are one stroke down.
  6. I don't think he has any anger management issues. He has something wrong mentally, perhaps schizophrenia, but I don't think it is anger management-related. * * Note: I'm not a trained mental health expert, and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
  7. He had a two shot lead with two holes to play. It was a 330-yard hole. He could have just hit a six-iron to a comfortable wedge distance and taken all risk out of the hole. Instead, he tried to drive the green on a hole with water near the green? It might have been an unfortunate bounce, but it was a horrible decision. Gipper did the same type of thing in the episode where he was eliminated, so it appears to run in the family.
  8. Distance obviously isn't everything, but Gipper's shoulder is clearly bothering him.
  9. The contestants picked their spots in advance. They were then ordered closest to farthest.
  10. Horrible decisions by Haymes and Bernie. If Haymes hits a driver, the only way it is ever the shot that counts is if he hits a horrible shot. Then they compounded that poor decision by having Bernie hit driver also. After he hit his shot where he did, the only way it wasn't being chosen was if she hit an even worse shot. She should have just pulled out a five iron or something. Glad to see Hugo and Camila advance. They've easily been the best couple the whole season.
  11. It was a skins game basically. The tie carried over the points to the next hole.
  12. As soon as I saw David wearing that hat in his confessionals, I knew they were gone. The hat just screamed "I'm moping and don't want to be here."
  13. The thing that got to me was when Bernie said that she quit playing competitive golf a few years ago. Huh? Then why are you on the show trying to win an exemption into an LPGA event? Then on top of that, the group with the non-competitive golfer wiped the floors with everyone else. It is obviously just one event, but it still doesn't say much for everyone else. I am guessing that the talent pool that Big Break had to choose from was much shallower for this edition, since they had to find people that had an existing relationship of some sort with another golfer. If the #11 Duramed finisher, for example, wasn't dating/related to/etc another golfer, she wouldn't be able to be on the show no matter what, since there would be no one with whom she could partner. The producers were limited by the group nature of the show. I also don't think the comparisons to Kim Welch are valid. It was obvious that she had talent, even when she was having her mental issues.
  14. She did not do well in the five tournaments after her win, including a missed cut in the finale. Hopefully she can get things back together before her LPGA tourney this year, or she won't be on the tour long.
  15. Everything I've seen has said 2009. It was filmed in 2007, but they don't want to give away the winner. http://www.thegolfchannel.com/24852/
