Golf – a marriage maker or breaker

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, with Big Break: X Michigan focusing on “couples” of all sorts, and the drama between them, I decided it was time to bring out the GFW post I did earlier this year about golf being a marriage maker or breaker (hated to see a good post go into the same big black hole like the magazine did – sniff ...

Big Break X: Michigan – Glass Attacks and Heartbreak

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailBig Breaks are all about immunity + elmination – and we’re all prepared for that. But tonight I almost wished the Golf Channel only showed the immunity challenges. They were so great, especially Robbie’s and Haymes’ glass breaking exhibitions. I’ve seen Tiger miss those numerous times, along with Mike Weir, Vijay, Furyk and others. Lucky you say? Of course…but I’d ... Read More »

BO GFW: Angel Park Mountain – Golf that’s juusst right!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThis past spring, my golfguy and I spent 5 days in Las Vegas, playing golf at a different club every day (Angel Park Palm, Boulder Creek, Revere, Angel Park Mountain and Legacy). We had some interesting experiences, some bad experiences and some really memorable ones. Today was one of the memorable ones because it was just sooo “nice”. “Nice” seems ... Read More »

BO GFW: A piece of golf heaven in the city of sin

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWhen I was planning our golf trip to Las Vegas this past spring I asked around about which golf courses would be best for us given our handicaps and preference for wide open spaces. There are soooo many great courses in the City of Sin, and picking just the right ones was kind of tough. But I have to say, ... Read More »

BO GFW: What’s your pink elephant?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail What is it you try sooo hard not to think about that you can’t think of anything else? We’ve heard it time and time again – golf is a mental game – a game of inches – ie. the 6 inches between your ears. We all know it. But…do we all believe it and I mean believe it so ... Read More »

Big Break X: Michigan – Episode 3 – The Ex’s got Axed

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, tonight was the first Big Break X Michigan elimination and I have to saw I was pretty shocked to see Andrea and James go home. Everyone I spoke with on the show said they were one of the strongest teams, and yet they struggled as a team to get it done when they needed to. They say golf is ... Read More »

Big Break X: Michigan – From here to eternity…how long do we have to wait for elmination?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOkay…enough already! Who’s going home??? No one…AGAIN? Aaaarg! I’m starting to feel like Andrea watching James hit those hook shots. Frustrated! I was sure tonight was going to be a “home coming” for one of the 8 teams on Big Break X, but once again, I was wrong. Okay, so if no one is elminated, what do we have to ... Read More »

Big Break X: Michigan Premiere – From shakey shanks to sure shots

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, no sooner did Highway 18 end, than the next golf reality TV show began. We hardly had time to breathe before Golf Channel kicked off its 10th edition of the BB series with a show that I think will have people coming back for more. I thought it was great that the show was almost entirely about real golf ... Read More »

Highway 18 – The Campbells scramble Canadian bacon and eggs

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, from the first episode to the last, there was never a dull moment on Golf Channel’s Highway 18 (okay, maybe the Trump croquet challenge was a bit lame, but overall, this series was a rollercoaster physically and emotionally). I watched every episode at least twice because I found myself missing so much. It was a fun and exhilerating ride, ... Read More »
