I feel like they just looked at the teams that would be competing in a local youth sports league, and stole their team names.

Horrible decision to film this in cold weather.

I mean, it's Vegas, so "cold" weather.

Plus, TopGolf has heated bays.

I’m sorry my joke wasn’t clear. I’m referring to the attire.

Sounds like a bowling alley for golf. Can you also play shuffleboard and throw darts? Yeah I could see giving it a whirl.

I've never been. My impressions are based on what one of my Yoga teachers told me about it and seeing drunk girls on Instaface.

Yeah, they have a couple other game areas in there. Full bar and restaurant too. A bowling alley for golf is pretty much the perfect way to describe it.

It's pretty fun, me and the girlfriend went while we were in Arizona for the waste management. She had a great time, we had a few beers and an appetizer and enjoyed the day. Honestly, golf is serious enough sometimes, it can be fun to just do something like this once in a while. Anything to grow the game.

Good question. I would think really good players would be bothered by their "quirkiness" (needless to say, the statement doesn't apply to me)!

Nothing to do with the show, but did anyone notice the team hype photos on the website?

If the girl is well endowed, she puts the club over the back of her shoulders like a yoke, if not as endowed, a one hander over the shoulder.

Perhaps this thread should be merged with the Kelly Tilghman thread, I see a connection.

DSS have you ever hit one of their orbs?  If the chip isn't perfectly centered it wobbles like VNutz after too many bourbons.

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

It’s a top golf infomercial.  I’m getting real burned out on top golf.

Looking at the roster, so it seems they found many of the attractive Instagram golf girls and put them on a roster. Ill check it out, huge fan of Tisha she is super sweet.

Well at least its some new original programming, ill give them that.

I would hope that Golf Channel would bring back their "Classic" Golf Channel Academy episodes and play them sometime in the afternoons or something just as a nice change from replaying the previous weeks tournaments (or School of Golf) over and over again. I miss those old Dave Pelz short game episodes.

Regarding the golf "talent" I see what they did here.

Interesting that most, if not all of the women that are on that Ship Sticks foursome commercial that is ALWAYS on are part of the teams.

Are you suggesting the Golf Channel hired women for their show because of their looks? Come on, they would never do that *cough* Blair O'Neal *cough*

Some of the team promos they posted over the weekend are absolutely cringeworthy.
