Big Break X: Michigan Episode 7: It’s never over until…

…”The Judge” rules! Wow! Are you as amazed as I am at Haymes’ ability to pull off the shots when he really needs them? He started off behind the 8 ball tonight and then nailed a drive when it looked like all was lost, followed by a great shot over the water. They say golf is a game of inches ... Read More »

Big Break X: Michigan – Babies, Bullets, but no Birdies

Okay, okay…an eagle is a birdie technically in the real world, but since when is golf “real”. For me Big Break’s are mostly unreal and sometimes surreal…and frankly…I had to find a way to use that alliteration in my title. 😉 What a rollercoaster tonight was! From Haymes’ new baby surprise (Congratulations Dad!!!), to bullet dodging by Amber and Robbie ... Read More »

Big Break X: Michigan – Long Drive to Nascar Crash

When thinking about what to call this post tonight, I couldn’t get Haymes’ great sound bite out of my mind, “It’s like watching a Nascar crash, hoping no one gets hurt.” I was sitting on the edge of my seat watching Sally and Dave go at each other wondering if the two long driving champions would drop golf gloves on ...

Big Break X: Michigan – Deja Vu Divots

Well…was it what you expected after watching the previews all week? The golf definitely took a back seat tonight on Big Break X, while David took the stage. So…what did you think of his “antics”? Okay okay…”Bingo, thank you very much!” was a bit over the top, but was it really as bad as what the other contestants said in ... Read More »

Golf – a marriage maker or breaker

Well, 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

Big 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!

This 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

When 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?

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 much ... Read More »
