Big Break

My Ka’anapali Royal Golf Course playlist

Although I grew up playing lots of different sports, none have kept my loyalty as long as golf has.  Sure, I’ve had my share of moments wondering why I play this infuriating game, but when  I think about life without it, I’m reminded why I love it so much even if it doesn’t always love me back.

Team Rice Wins Big Break NFL Puerto Rico!

So…what did you think of the finale of Big Break NFL? I had a little trouble watching the show given how much I like both Brian and Emily.   I hated seeing Team Doleman fight so hard every week, only to watch them walk away empty handed, with no second chances. Brian, Shannon and Chris dominated the series until the ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 10: The Dual at Dorado

WOW! What a fantastic semi-final match in Big Break NFL! So often one hears from viewers that Big Break is not “real golf”, but last night’s episode made many eat their words.  The duel between Isaac and Mallory was, as Jerry Rice said, “One of the best exhibitions of golf I’ve seen in a long time.” There were no losers ...

Big Break NFL 9: And then there were three…

If you had told me at the beginning of this series that Team Rypien would be taken down by Team Brown, I wouldn’t have believed you. Given James’ week-after-week consistency and Will’s “box of chocolates” performance to date, I probably would have laughed and placed a bet right then and there against you. But golf is a fickle game.  One ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 6: The Infamous Doleman Double

On Big Break NFL last night, we saw some good shots, some bad shots and some really ugly shots… The Good – Shannon’s 7 point score from 125 yards; too bad she wasn’t “good enough” in the eyes of her team leader to own a double The Bad – Al’s attempts at up and down.  It just was NOT his ...

Big Break NFL 5 – Unnecessary Roughness

Drama took center stage at this week’s Big Break NFL with the Doleman team once again showcasing the dark side of its creative differences. Chris obviously thinks Brian should be singing soprano even though it’s Brian coming through in the crunch, not Chris.  Something’s gotta go on that team, and sadly it seems like the leader of Team Doleman wants ...

Big Break NFL Episode 4: Over the Top

Every Big Break brings its share of twists and surprises, but no one is ever surprised to see the Flop Wall – and for good reason – we love to see the players panic over the 8 foot monster.  This week was no exception. Last season on Big Break Mexico, Stefanie was, in her words, “Bit in the butt” by ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 1: Stefanie Starts Strong!

Hey everyone, It sure is great to be back interviewing contestants on Golf Channel’s Big Break.  I haven’t missed any of the past 19 seasons on TV, but it killed me that I couldn’t work interviews into my work and travel schedule after BB Atlantis. I’m so excited to be back and especially pumped about the twist this season is ... Read More »
