I was hoping GC would bring back Big Break. Shotmakers will have to do.

Regarding the golf “talent” I see what they did here.

Big Break was an enjoyable.

Shotmakers looks like a paid infomercial for topgolf. Won't make it past the first "season" or whatever.

Big Break was great. This looks fun too. Golf doesn't need to be completely serious all the time, i'll check this out.

I want to know how both the Biershenk's got on there. Do they have some connections at TGC? One of them was on Big Break as well and they really aren't that interesting, I've played with them plenty around the area.

I beg to differ. Happy Gilmore maybe, i can watch that every now and then. Tin Cup is more enjoyable to me and i like Adam Sandler.

They're well followed on Instagram. Looks like Golf Channel is trying to pull some of those fans in.

I'll agree it does look like a very big commercial for Top Golf. All you need now is Hank Haney to promote this on his radio talk show. He using plugs just for Top Golf now.

I'll watch the first show for sure, but the more promotions I see on GC about it, the less enthused I am. Guessing I'm not their target market of course.
