Shotmakers on Golf channel


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else checked out shotmakers on the golf channel? It's a reality golf show that takes place at Top Golf in Vegas, 2 person teams compete against each other collecting points for called shots into specific targets that ultimately lead to an elimination round at the end of the episode. I've watched the first 2 episodes and as excited as I was for this to come on I'm not impressed. Anyone else check this out and have any feedback? I really wanted to love this.

I've watched, and I've found it entertaining enough. I was expecting something different, and spent more time watching Red Sox - Yankees, but it was ok.

Like you I watched it briefly and like you found it rather boring.   I remember thinking that there must be an episode of "Law and Order" on some channel.

I saw the last half of the first show and about 10 minutes of the second then my wife came in and wanted to watch The Voice, there are some great singers on The Voice.  I don't plan to seek out the episodes of Shotmakers because if I know  TGC I will have ample opportunity to see them.

A great addition would be giving the true TopGolf LV treatment with bottle service and the bevertainers that serve the drinks.  I could hit the ditch within the parameters 9 out of 10 times with a ladies four iron.....and that was after a bottle of Tito's.  I may or may not have been there several times :)

Outside a few names I didn't recognize most of the competitors and two of the names I did recognize were eliminated the first day so even having a somewhat familiarity with some of the participants couldn't help.

Frankly I miss the Big Break. I wish they would bring it back.

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Yes! Big break was excellent. At least a few have made it into the PGA tour like Tony Finau.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks these guys are that good.

It has been a bit of a disappointment.  I gave it a try Monday night and thought it was boring, but that was after a long day.   Tried it again last night and I was still not entertained.  I like the thought of trying something new, but this one hasn't worked for me.  Bring back The Big Break.

I did watch the first two episodes but found it to be poor. I think there is only so much you can do at a top golf facility, at the end of the day it gets boring just trying to hit shots into targets. This is suppose to replace the big break, but I honesty like the different challenges you have when playing on a proper golf course. Breaking the glass, flop shots over the wall, short game challenges. I know this has been done before and they are trying something new, but it looks like they just got a bunch of attractive Instagram golf girls and are trying to appeal to that younger market. It's ok to watch but can't see it going past one season

It's VERY BORING!!! Players aren't very good. The girls are pretty but that's not enough for me to watch. The GC commercials say "Shotmakers is setting the internet ablaze". Yeah it is, but most I've seen is saying it's terrible. Only lasting until the end of the month. Hopefully, it will die a quick death after that.
