Shotmakers on Golf channel


Recommended Posts

So, I've been catching up and watching the shows in the myriad of replays Golf Channel has in the early part of the week. I just feel as if you're going to have a show called Shotmakers, maybe you can want to have some folks who can make some $%&@ing shots! I did a quick bit of research on the size of those targets there at Top Golf and best I can find, those targets are 25 yards wide. Quick calculation shows that the area is 4,418 sq feet, rounded up. Average green size on the PGA Tour is 6,000 and I have to think most local courses are closer to the 2500-3000 sq ft range.

 

I hate to say it, if you're going to tell me these folks are shotmakers, they better be able to hit a target of that size from 90 and 125 yards. The show sucks.

Haven't watched it. I like golf, this isn't golf. However I could see how it might attract new viewers so I get it.   Frankly I miss the Big Break. I wish they would bring it back.     Sent fr

Painful to watch, just painful.  Also the playing ability is not that great to boot.  Definitely a skip night for me when it is on.   A great addition would be giving the true TopGolf LV treatment w

Ugghhh. Against my better judgement (and the advice of many here), I tuned in last night. So bad. TopGolf is better suited for beers with friends than a legitimate tv show meant to showcase golfer skill. What was wrong with Big Break? I don't know the ratings numbers, but I watched every episode. It was my go to DVR material (prior to four daughters who have since filled it up with all manner of Disney princess movies). I found Big Break was, the majority of the time, an interesting test of shotmaking in a variety of formats. If it ain't broke...

Ryan o'toole and Gerina Pillar were the big names on the ladies side. Also spending time on the LPGA tour were Kristy McPhearson, Sadena Parks, Katy Harris, and Jackie Stoelting.

Wow, I don't remember Gerina being on there!

I just can't stand reality shows- and the production here seems more like that than a competition show. There is a TopGolf facility about 5 miles from my house opening soon. This show makes me not want to go to TopGolf.

I was in a place where I was forced to watch shot makers or wall paper peal.   I would choose wall paper pealing every time.   That show is just AWFUL!!!

Well guys, after 6 weeks of regular season play, Team Short & Crooked (downlowkey & my buddy - Dave) have managed to earn the #1 seed in the TopGolf 2-person team playoff bracket. 4 seeded matches (each a single game / single elimination) over the next 2 weeks will determine the Spring league championship and who moves on to the regional tournament (precursor to Las Vegas primetime lowlights). League champs receive free entry into the next (Fall) seasonal league, chunky medals and a berth in the regional tourney.

 

I'll try to post match updates throughout tonight's session (7-9pm MST).

 

If we end up winning the Spring championship, I'm changing our name to Team MyGolfSpy for the Fall session.

Team Short & Crooked dominated both playoff matches last night, so we are heading to the final 4 next week. 2 more wins will give us the Spring championship... and all the money, fame, groupies, etc. such a lofty designation entails.

 

We had a shot of Maker's in celebration of moving one step closer to Shotmakers... or perhaps merely to help quell the rising dread of actually being compelled to appear on that awful program.

 

More dumb (and hopefully celebratory) posts on the subject to come next Tuesday.
