But could it be worse than that speed golf show they tried? Yikes

I completely forgot about that disaster. After filming they should've tossed that show in the bin and saved face.

Will they be using the "top golf" balls? Those balls fly really weird.

This is exactly what I just said to my buddy...I haven't been to a TG in years, but when we used to go (Springfield, VA) - those balls absolutely sucked...maybe they improved them?
I'm sure for the show the will get the TG 5* balls :taunt:

I enjoyed the The Hank Haney Project and Big Break very much, I would love to see either of these come back. I have a feeling I'm not going to like this show at all.

I'll be tuning in.  I may be in the minority but I actually kind of like a lot of golf channels reality/contest shows (Outside of Altered Course, that was awful).  I'd rather watch these shows than another golf central or morning drive.  Really wish they'd bring back Big Break.

I'll try to save everyone some time.  I gave it a shot, I lasted 20 minutes.  Unfortunately, it's bad, really bad. Forced dialogue between teammates, secret handshakes, poor golf swings and shots, etc.

Bring back Big Break!!!!

Edit: A ball just bounced out of the target, at least this is relatable for anyone who has been to Top Golf!

Not much shot making so far. Everyone is just trying to hit the trench at the end of the range.

Agreed, it’s awful. Better format would be just have regular people apply for the show through local qualifiers at your local Top Golf and then advance to the Big Show for $. The shots should be decided for you not by you, this going for the trench they’re doing now takes almost all the finesse out of shot making and therefore not very interesting.

If you are saying the women are above average, I'll turn over from The Voice.

Most are well above average. The only reason I'm still watching. Some guy just hit one off the hosel with a 4 iron into the side fence so I'm obviously not watching for the "shotmaking".

Whoever came up with the format for this show wasn’t very creative. This is the most vanilla thing I’ve ever seen. I love golf, and this is borderline unwatchable. Lot of poor shots for some players who claim a lot of accomplishments.

I decided to give it a try.  It is exactly what I thought it would be.  An utter disaster and painfully boring.

Watching a mish mash of Semi famous people randomly paired with unknowns hit balls at top golf will never, ever be done again by these eyes.  

It’s basically an extended commercial adviertisement for Topgolf thinly veiled as a TV show.

Hey now, a local bowling show hosted by a broadcasting legend passed for entertainment on central Iowa Sunday mornings many moons ago.

Okay, that may not counter your point.

I was looking forward to it. Something new to watch and I'm odd like that :) but the format needs work, may be the next few episodes the rules will mix it up.
They shouldn't get to call their shots. Just swing for the fences and go for the trench.
Good looking women so they at least got that going for them

In the elimination, Victoria Lovelady hit a drive that only reached the front of the white target that's 185 yards out?
They are also 4 platforms up....40 ft up?.....so if I guess correctly she CRUSHED a driver that would carry 170-175 yards without an elevated tee?

I think Revolution Golf just signed up another golfer for their $99 subscription? :taunt:
