It’s never easy watching someone go home on the Big Break, but this week was particularly tough, witnessing a mini-meltdown of a very experienced and talented player, who I believe deserved to stick around a lot longer.
Robert Floyd is no slouch when it comes to golf. After a very successful amateur career and achieving All-American status at the University of Florida, Robert competed on the Nationwide and PGA Tour for 15 years, racking up 30 professional tournaments under his belt.
Sadly, we really didn’t get to know Robert very well; I know many of us where hoping to see him show his World Golf Hall of Famer dad that he has what it takes to win. But after reading his exit blog post on the Golf Channel, I have to say that Robert is already a winner in my books. It was pretty cool of him to give some of his clothes to Will to wear during the show. Class act all the way!
I’ve got a great lineup of interviews this week. David is joining me again from Las Vegas where he’s playing in a pro-am this week.
I asked David if he had to pick one other contestant who would make a great interviewee, who would he pick. And without hesitation said, “Everyone will love Shank!” So I’m very pleased to say that Robbie (Shank) Biershenk is joining in on this week’s fun.
And to wrap up the week I am very pleased to be able to chat with one of David’s golf coaches from the University of Detroit-Mercy, Mark Engel.
But first…let’s hear from David…
Next up, Robbie…
And to last but not least, David’s university coach, Mark Engel…
Thanks to everyone for some great interviews this week. I love it when I learn stuff from the show I didn’t know before and insights into players we can’t get from their bio – all priceless!
Next week we’re going to see the classic Big Break Glass Breaking competition. Can’t wait to see how they all do with that.
Something tells me if they get to pick the glass they break, Justin is aiming straight for Kent’s pane. 🙂
