Big Break IW 6: Oren is Ousted
No question, given 100 chances to make that short putt, Oren would have sunk it 99 times. But isn't it always the way? It's the inches that will kill you in golf, not the hundreds of yards it takes to get to that point. I realize it wasn't that particular putt that sent him walking, but it certainly couldn't have helped his confidence with the flat stick later in the show.
I really like Oren. What a great smile, eh? And he was a terrific contestant on the Big Break. Like Russell, his is a man who served his country proudly and was awarded several medals and honors.
He showed such integrity and even kindness throughout the series; I hope that he doesn't give up his dream. But...given how he loves to gamble, I'm betting that he won't ante up without a good fight!
But Oren wasn't the only storyline this week. Petey proved he deserved to be back in contention, capturing his 3.5 points faster than you can say, "Game on!" I'm really curious how the guys all felt about that.
David, Carl and Robbie were with me once again (love these guys!!!) to share their thoughts on Petey's comeback and Oren's elimination.
Up first, David, with some insights into creative editing that made the show that much more exciting...
Carl provides some new information about his match with Oren - love getting behind-the-scenes scoop on things we didn't see...
Robbie sets the record straight on John's play and what makes this Big Break group so special from all the rest...
Thanks guys for everything! Looking forward to watching next week's show and chatting with you once more. Until then...keep it in the short grass.
