Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I watched all weekend on GolfPass.  Sad to admit I watched that much TV but when you can't go anywhere and all other "projects" around the house are done, what else is there to do?

Began Season 5 last night.  I forgot about the 12 handicap wannabe actress/model that gave the performance of a lifetime to the Big Break producers to get a spot in Season 5.  Then I remembered Big Break jumped the shark by inviting her back for Season 7!

I watched the one from the Dominican Republic this past Monday.  I know it is edited for drama, but ever time I watch that show I just pray that I don't get paired with anyone that behaves that way on the course.  I am competitive too, but some of these guys would make it suck for everyone.

So winning the Big Break Dominican Republic, Blair O'Neal got her big break on the Golf Channel when she couldn't make it on the LPGA.

Wasn't she on the Big Break season in Prince Edward Island Canada as well?  It was a coed season, half women and half men.  O'Neal lost in the finals to a Canadian mini-tour player who played at Arizona with Ricky Barnes and Rory Sabatini.  Gerina Piller was also on that season.  

I still contend Big Break is a great concept as long as producers stop trying to make it golf's version of "Big Brother" or "Real World!"

Yes, I believe that everyone on Big Break Dominican Republic was a previous contestant on an earlier show. 

I enjoyed the shows, but there was a little too much drama for me.  I'm fairly sure that the GC was looking for specific characters during auditioning, and several were very willing to step up and play the part.

I really enjoyed a few seasons.  The Ryder Cup style season (4 maybe) filmed at Carnoustie was outstanding.  The season in Mesquite probably had the best collection of total talent.  Prince Edward Island was loaded on the female side with Blair O'Neal, Gerina Piller, Brenda McLarnnon and Caroline Larsson.  Larsson had earned her LPGA Tour card just before a major earthquake in New Zealand led to her leg being amputated.  Her story is amazing.

I have tried to re-watch a few seasons on Golf Pass but the drama is too much for me now.  I guess I didn't pay as much attention to it when I was younger.  I get the distinct impression producers started seeking out a "Big Brother / Real World" vibe as the show progressed.
