From an alligator-infested swamp to home of the Gators, the Highway 18 contestants once again faced challenges they would never have anticipated going into a golf competition. But that’s really what makes this show so much fun. While die-hard golf show watchers may not appreciate the non-golf related content, I think it really brings a lot of entertainment to Golf Channel and it keeps me on the edge of my seat. It’s entertainment!
Tonight we watched quite a bit of golf – from a 60 yard pitch shot to an “F is for Frustrating” Gator’s logo to speed golf at Golden Ocala Golf Club where 5 tribute holes are patterned after famous courses like Augusta, Royal Troon and St. Andrews. I thought that was a pretty cool idea and I’ve made a note to add that course to my golf course “bucket list”.
Course management is done in seconds on this show and I’m sure Ashleigh and Ashley would love to grab back just a few of those seconds and make some different decisions. Let’s hear what the ladies had to say about their hole selection, club selection, laying up instead of going for the green from 150 yards and much more…
We all know that hindsight is 20/20, but it’s also a great teacher and I’m sure that Trouble and Sunshine have learned a lot from this episode. I have no doubt that those hard knocks and a strike against them are probably going to make them stronger, smarter and sneakier going into next week’s show.
I can’t wait to watch!
