bring back Big Break, I really liked that show

Let's do a reality show of hackers-- Instead of taking already skilled golfers, let's take some folks with minimal skill, put them in a house and give them say 12 week's worth of instruction/practice/

Personally, I'd like to see Shell's Wonderful World of Golf reruns touched up and rebroadcast in all of their vintage glory!   Here's a sample - Ben Hogan vs Sam Snead back in 1965   https://www.y

Let's do a reality show of hackers-- Instead of taking already skilled golfers, let's take some folks with minimal skill, put them in a house and give them say 12 week's worth of instruction/practice/play and see how well they improve. Could do bi-weekly eliminations to widdle down the field and give one person the title at the end of the season. That person would get a trip to all 4 majors and inside the ropes access etc.

 

I like Ole Gray's idea-- kind of similar to Diner's Drive ins and dives. I'd definitely watch

My idea was similar to jlew, except it was experienced amateurs competing for a tour card or a spot in a big event and a huge check.

But, I like jlew's idea better. A group of hacks and duffers would be way more fun to watch.

Its Jimmy Hanlin with Natalie Gulbis. It's called 18 holes. He had another show with a different female pro that visited different golf courses in Ohio, but I can't remember the name of it.

 

It seems I should have read down a little further before responding...lol.

Show always cracked me up. They would have "celebrity" appearances from time to time for Cavs and Indians players. I've met Jimmy a couple times. Nice guy.

 

He owns Cumberland Trail here in Columbus.

 

Edit: It appears it has maybe sold to new owners. Apparently the course was in terrible condition the past couple years.

Big Break was my favorite show, but the idea of a "big brother " combo where once a week after a few weeks of instruction people get eliminated and the winner gets to hit at the par 3 at Waste Management in February

the premise: GolfSpy BarbaJo takes the senior golfer on a daily journey starting with tips for just getting out of bed in the morning and oatmeal - the most satisfying meal of the day. Hot topics like driving to the course avoiding small children and not running off the road and--is 2 nickels too much for your caddy?

Like the title says, if you could pitch a show idea to the Golf Channel what would it be?

 

The first thing I would pitch is an equipment show where Wilson Staff had a team of their top engineers and designers with no constraints except USGA conformance design a club from start to finish. Like "Driver vs Driver" with people who know what they are doing.

 

The second show would take a struggling mom and pop golf course or muni and restore or renovate it to make it profitable again. It could be like "Kitchen Nightmares" for golf courses. Giving insight into the industry to regular golfers and a roadmap for struggling golf operations.

 

I would watch the hell out of both these shows as long as Brian Urlacher had nothing to do with them. He seems nice enough, but he doesn't open his mouth wide enough to speak on television.

 

What about you guys and gals? What would you want to watch instead of Tin Cup reruns?

Like the second idea. How about a reality based show based on web.com tour school?

Or not touched up. Love these and would watch them over Tin Cup reruns all day (Caddyshack would be a toss up). Don't understand why we only get these at Christmas and not throughout the year.

My show would be called "Hack and Jill"

 

We had this conversation a while back about how well your average male player would fare against an LPGA player.

 

You bring in a decent player who hits it a mile farther than the ladies and see how they do head to head.

Make the guy a solid 0-6 HDP to give audiences an idea of just how good LPGA Tour stars are. Have 'em play from the same tees, though.

It is unbelievable how accurate they are tee to green on the LPGA tour. Their shortcomings are mostly around the green.

 

If you did it like Bobby Flay's Throw Down it would be awesome. Take guys who post a thing on social media about being better than LPGA Professionals and surprise them with a camera crew and any female pro. Challenging them to 18 holes at their home course under tournament conditions and rules.

The First Tee success stories...

Am I the only one whose eyes welled up (maybe just a few times) during the Drive, Putt and Chip showings this weekend?  I think a show that showcases the impact that our game has on young people would be fun.

 

Pimp my cart...

A friend of mine lives in an exclusive golf community and some of those carts are sick.  If they could find a family owned business that had a similarly weird dyamic, then something like a reboot of the American Chopper for golf carts could be fun.

 

A Season with ________...

Pro and college footbal has done it.  I'd love to follow an early favorite NCAA team for a season.

 

 

The not-Haney Project...

Nothing against Hank, but show me a new, up-and-coming coach. Someone without a big name (but a good personality).  And I don't care if the coach has a Barkley-esque project or tweaks a Web.com guy or Symetra girl.

 

 

18 Holes with Paige Spiranac...

just sayin

I'd like to see a series about playing in mini-tours.

 

The struggle is real for those guys.

This would be awesome. I would watch some absolute scrubs Try to get as good as possible in 12 weeks. Gotta get some goofy characters on there and some decent pro features. It would be great to watch the first month of pure slices and thinned wedge shots over the green.

What about a show highlighting some of the top juniors around the country/world. Showing their travel to AGJA events, days at their golf academies, stuff like that. Those kids are all over the country every weekend, take classes, and play at such a high level.
