If you’re a Golf Tips Junkie

Recently a follower on Twitter commented that my bio should be in the world record books for “most mentions of the word ‘golf’!”  Haha…they have a point I guess.  Here’s how it goes…”I love playing golf, watching golf, writing about golf, reading about golf, travelling and reviewing golf courses. In my spare time, I’m a marketing consultant who wishes she ... Read More »

Big Break PEI Episode 10 – Bye Bye Brenda

Well, tonight we bid a fond, but sad farewell to a talented and very entertaining contestant on Big Break PEI — Brenda “Sorry Mommy and Daddy“ McLarnon. I have enjoyed watching Brenda hit some clutch shots throughout the series to save herself from elmination and thought that tonight, right until the last hole when she was only down by 1, ...

Big Break PEI Episode 9: Gerina’s Not just Anybody

At one point during tonight’s show, Gerina was quoted as saying, “It’s anybody’s game.” And she was right. But unfortunately, Gerina wasn’t anybody tonight. Tonight’s episode saw some typical Gerina shots – smoking drives we’ve come to expect from this long bomber. But then we witnessed the unexpected – a 147 yard shot into a greenside bunker that was instrumental ... Read More »

Big Break PEI Episode 8: Aaron fights to the finish

But the question I have is, “Who was he fighting? – The other players or himself?” Tonight while watching the Big Break PEI, I was really shocked to hear Aaron call himself a “coward” when his chip shot came up short in his playoff against Derek. As an ex-Marine who is both physically and mentally strong, hearing him say that ... Read More »

Big Break PEI Episode 7: Eugene All Talked Out

So were you as surprised at the ending tonight as I was? I was sure from the sound of Gerina’s voice during her interview that she was eliminated from Big Break PEI. Not that Gerina was expected to lose by any means – even Stina said that Gerina and Derek were “the last two people you’d want to meet in ... Read More »

Big Break PEI: Episode 5: Meeoow…Hssst! Nicole’s Nixed

When tonight’s episode began, I felt like Andrew Magee from Big Break Ka’anapali, yelling, “What’s going on!!!!” Oh my goodness! What was going on between Brenda and Nicole tonight? We’ve been through 4 episodes already and everything was hunky dorey between everyone (so it would seem). And then suddenly… POW – Cat fight city! Brenda and Nicole go at each ... Read More »

Big Break PEI: Episode 4: Caroline bunkered

Well, this week’s Big Break PEI was chocked full of all the things we love about Big Breaks, and then some: – Full of fast paced competition – they squeezed every minute out of that production with 13 different skill contests tonight. – Full of sand – bunkers were a big part of this show and according to the players, ...

Big Break PEI: Episode 3: Kim comes up short

Well, tonight’s Big Break PEI episode was a combination of chemistry, tension, and jockularity. Chemistry “allegedly” between Derek and Nicole, self-inflicted nerves by Kim and good old Irish humor from “Ms. Feherty” (AKA Brenda McLarnon). I guess the guys were feeling a bit better after this show, given they lost two of their own the first two weeks, but I ... Read More »
