The Golf Channel's Big Break is back! The cast has been announced, and we couldn’t be more excited that this season is Big Break Florida and will be held on our very own Amelia Island.
As a past winner of the Big Break and current tour player, I not only know the insides and outs of the Big Break, but have played golf with many of these contestants for years.
Here are a few cast members you need to keep your eye on. Just like you, I haven't seen any of the results, but by the looks of this cast, it’s going to be a great season!
Jackie has been a driving force on tour with 6 top-15 finishes in just 13 events. She got married in the middle of the season, and came back from her honeymoon playing better than ever! After shooting the show, she went to LPGA QSchool and earned her conditional LPGA Card. Big Break has never given the prizes to someone already on the LPGA, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Mary is unlike any golfer you’ve ever met, and we love her on tour! She is definitely the tour comedian, keeping you in stitches throughout any tournament round. Her dad caddies for her, and she's a real down-to-earth family girl. However, Mary is a fierce competitor and is never afraid to tell you what she is thinking. So it will be fun to see how she interacts with the other players.
Renee is a tour veteran who has been playing professionally for the past four years. She is one of the sweetest girls on tour, so I wouldn't expect much drama from her. I can imagine her playing well on the show because she knows how to handle herself under pressure. I've never seen her throw a club or have any choice words on the links.
Bring on the power! Known for her distance, Sadena has clubhead speed that I have never seen before. I hope this power will be handy for her on the show. Sadena is well-liked on tour, has a laid-back attitude off the course, and is a true competitor on the course. I'm excited to see how her personality will shine through on the show.
Get your DVR ready because Big Break Florida premiers Feb. 24, 2014. Who do you think will be the next Big Break Champ?
