I liked it, I am going to like "Chasing the Dream" which is right after, even more, because I think its un scripted

Unscripted?  How about the part where they just happened to meet up in CA?  That was pretty bad.  Hopefully they will avoid that in future shows.

That was so obvious.  There are only about 75
courses within an hours drive of La Quinta California.  What are the odds the two guys featured on the show would be at the same course, at the same time.

And it just so happend they were both miked up
and had a Golf Channel filming crew following them.
it was totally set up....... You can't be that naive.....

Last week for the BB promo they used a pic of Mark, then he was eliminated the next show. This week it's a pic of Issac. I wonder if he will be next?

That's hilarious. I wasn't a fan of Anthony after the preview show aired before the season began, but I liked him more as the show went on. The guy just needs some confidence! Brian however is still annoying and I would like to see him go.

I feel exactly the same. Anthony seemed like a good guy, just a bit down on himself. He annoyed me the first episode, but then I liked him more and more. I really like Mark, Rick, Isaac and James as well. Does anyone else think Rick looks like Pink from Dazed and Confused??

Bye bye temper tantrum. I have showed my a$$ a time or two, I snapped the head off my new rbz tour driver 5 days before traveling to pinehurst this spring, and had a replacement ordered by the time I got to the green, a very expensive bogey, but this guy is bad. I will never act like that any more. Seeing him act a fool has opened my eyes.

On the highlight of a future Big Break Academy they show the Saucer pass. With all of the GC's attempt to keep everything a secret I can't believe they would be so obvious about the outcome of the show but I guess we'll see.

Also had the same Kikkor golf shoes I have. I noticed it early on and tried to find out some dirty secrets via facebook/twitter.

I dont think he wins although I'm rooting for him. Mark and Isaac are really cool dudes too. I like them a lot as well. Rick is a little arrogant, but he's a decent guy too I think.

I'm cool with whoever wins now. Isaac is so clutch.

I am cool with all four players that are left.  I would love to see Isaac on the first tee at his PGA tour exemption paired with some really small guy like CH3 or Mike Weir (don't think he still has a card) or similar.
Still rooting for James, but I believe it is going to be Mark or Isaac, those guys have been pretty steady throughout. Love Rick's swing but he gets in his own way, James just seems too rusty.

I really wasn't planning to watch another BB, but this one has been great, especially after the cannon fodder got knocked out. I'm all for the drug head guy straightening out and sorting out his life, but he plain irritated me.

I hope they actually get these guys to play some golf in the last few episodes, rather than trick shots and the like. Only real way to see who is the best guy in the end, IMHO.

That was hilarious. Brian got awfully lucky the grandstand was there. Nice 3rd shot too. I was surprised that he was that bad of a driver for as good of a player as he is.

I am a fan of Lepp and was rooting for him, but long term I have concerns if he could ever compete on any tour. He has too many demons and has these bandaids he use to fix them. The Saucer Pass is a cool bandaid, closing the eyes on short chips?? what is next

mark silvers I think is by far the best player of the show. He shot a 69 today to open first round of q school. I also think he doesn't win the show because in the q school pictures he was not gaming an adams bag. That is big because all the players who win big break game a big adams staff big with an endorsement. On the other hand, James was shown doing a saucer pass with Mike Breed so I don't think he wins. I think its between Isaac and Cochran.

mark silvers I think is by far the best player of the show. He shot a 69 today to open first round of q school. I also think he doesn't win the show because in the q school pictures he was not gaming an adams bag. That is big because all the players who win big break game a big adams staff big with an endorsement. On the other hand, James was shown doing a saucer pass with Mike Breed so I don't think he wins. I think its between Isaac and Cochran.

Contracts don't start till the show finishes airing. Maybe they did an Academy episode with the winner? Who Knows?
