Big Break Atlantis 10: No Glory YET for Gloriana

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail What a great 10th episode of Big Break Atlantis!  I love it when the Golf Channel brings back contestants to try their luck again. Of course, I was naturally excited to see Anya and Natalia back, but it was also fun to see many of the others who exited so quickly we hardly got to know them.   Shannon was ... Read More »

Big Break Atlantis 9: Marcela Makes it While Christina Crumbles

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Big Break Atlantis is starting to come to a close, and although I’m saddened by that thought, I am also stoked to find out who takes home the cash, prizes and LPGA exemption.  Patience has never been one of my virtues, but it is one of the most critical skills when it comes to golf. I can’t imagine what ... Read More »

Big Break Atlantis 7: It’s TKO for Kelly

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail This week on Big Break Atlantis we witnessed clutch golf like I’ve never seen it before on a BB series. Maniac putting kept many contestants in the running, but in the finally showdown, the nail biting finish resulted in Kelly Villarreal taking the long walk. No amount of letters on her golf gloves could help her short game in ... Read More »

Blue Falcon fills in during Maui Madness

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHey Big Break Fans!Hope everyone enjoyed episode 6 this week.  I am embarrassed to say I haven’t seen it yet.  I’ve been in Maui getting my condo ready for renting out to vacationers and the construction folks who did my new tile work killed all the cabling to the TVs when they buried them, and I’m still waiting for an electrician to ...

Big Break Atlantis 3: Two Inches too Far for Zakiya

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAnother “interesting” turn of events on Big Break Atlantis this week.  We saw some good shots, some bad shots and some pretty darn ugly shots, but some of the worst shots (e.g. Gloriana’s wasted shots on the first immunity challenge) were hit by golfers who ended up safe, and those who played some great shots (e.g. Zakiya’s bunker shot to ...

David Byrne is the Big Break Indian Wells Champion!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail …and $70,000 richer!  Not too shabby for 11 days work. But like all things in David’s life, it didn’t come easy. His story about how his mother and he worked multiple jobs and struggled to make ends meet, has been told more than once on this series. But it’s worth remembering – David worked hard for his money his ... Read More »

Big Break Indian Wells 9: Canada Versus Jamerica

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailCarl certainly named this show appropriately didn’t he? I don’t know about you, but for me it was as exciting as a Ryder/President Cup match or the Stanley Cup, but this time around, Canada prevailed.  The Canucks (Kent and David) shut down Jamerica (Carl and Will)  in two nail-biting matches that were so indicative of this entire series.  Mano-a-mano – the guys fought tirelessly ...

Big Break Indian Wells 8: Shank may be gone…

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail….but he won’t soon be forgotten after this week’s show.  There’s a new SHANK in town!  I can’t ever remember a Big Break episode with such emotion and such a grand finale as this week’s, and it’s not even the last show!  My mouth dropped more than once, whether it was from Carl’s amazing 3-wood or Robbie’s surprise revelation at the ...

Big Break Indian Wells 7: Double Trouble

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail I guess it was inevitable that there would be an episode with two eliminations in it, given that Petey had come back and we only had a few shows left, but I was still thrown for a loop on how it happened. Imagine how the Music Man felt that morning. John had just paid the price for avoiding elimination ... Read More »

Big Break IW 6: Oren is Ousted

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail How does a golfer putt from 35+ yards out and get it to tap-in range at the hole and then miss the next putt?  I guess we’d have to ask Oren – this week’s Big Break eliminated contestant.  No question, given 100 chances to make that short putt, Oren would have sunk it 99 times.  But isn’t it always the ...
