Gainey has won twice hasnt he?

Gainey and Finau on the short list.

Rick Cochran (I think it was Rick?) will be a good one too, IMO.

On the other side, who do you think is the most successful Big Breaker ever?  Tony Finau?
I'd say Gainey is the most succcesful (PGA tour winner), but Finau will go on to be he best.  Gerina Piller has payed consistently well on the LPGA tour, and Blair O'Neal has turned her exposure into a nice gig with Puma and TGC.

Every has 2 PGA Tour wins. He's the most successful on paper, though I'd be surprised if Finau doesn't surpass him.

There was a girl on the first female BB and I think her name was Kirbee/Cirbie.  Played barefoot...free spirit...wild hair...don't remember her hitting many good shots and don't think she survived episode 1.

I watched the first BB and could barely make it through that first season. I cant believe itís still on, or at least was a few years ago. Well no I can. I guess if an industry can sell pink shirts to men who proudly wear them, they can sell anything.

My wife and I use the same line.  Also "I hole out more than I don't get up and down" .  That guy was a hoot.  

I miss that show.  Favorite was Chad.  The War vet amputee that just played in shot makers.  Great attitude.  Everyone kept picking him for elimination and he kept knocking them all off.  That guy could handle pressure and always pull off an amazing shot when it was on the line.

I really liked BB, kind of a guilty pleasure thing (extra guilty because I mostly watched the women's seasons lol). My favorite ever was Selanee Henderson, gorgeous girl and a genuine grinder.  I really thought she'd make it!

I only really watched one show, the one that I think Richy Werenski won...but the black guy on that show was incredibly cocky, super annoying, and didn't appear to be that good.  

Richy Werenski has been decent so far...struggling to get tour card but has done well in some tour events and web.com tour.

He made over $1M in this season and kept his card for next year.  Not too shabby all in all.
