Week two of Big Break Atlantis was sure full of suprises, eh?
Imagine being one those 3 rejected golfgals, broken hearted because no one picked them for their team, only to have the world’s #1, Yani Tseng come in to save the day!
Imagine being on top of the world because you were one of the chosen few who made a team, only to have the rug pulled out from under you!
Imagine being one of the strongest players going into the day’s challenges, only to end that day taking the dreaded “walk”.
Personally, I found Shannon’s exit rather shocking. I thought she would go much farther – she’s certainly got talent. There was a reason Zakiya picked her first on her team. And don’t forget that in 2011 she ran up four top-4 finishes on the Cactus Tour in her first six events. Not too shabby!
Don’t worry Shannon…remember Kristy McPherson took an early walk on her BB and ended up on the LPGA tour and the Solheim Cup team!
But hey…that’s what the BB can do to you. Even Yani seemed to feel nervous before her flop shot. I was expecting much better results from her on that shot and subsequent putt, but I guess she’s only human too. Another shocker! 😉
Yup…I was surprised a lot on Monday night.
This week I’m happy to have both Anya and Natalia joining me again to talk about “one bad putt”, a very lucky “members’ bounce” off a tree and cashing in for safety.
Let’s hear first from Anya, who shares some cool behind-the-scene moments with Yani…
Next up, Natalia, who has been more of a spectator than competitor so far with her two immunities…
Watching this episode it really hit home to me that golf really does seem to be 90% mental, 1% physical and 9% luck.
I wonder who’ll get the luck next week?
