Big Break X Michigan Week 5 Recap

I have to be honest, this week’s Big Break was rather uninteresting, other than the antics of “We hit it hard, that’s what we do” David of the “David & Sally show.  Still the weakest team on the show if you ask me.   It definitely appears that the rest of the players are starting to get a little pissed with his attitude and mouthiness.  Ok, he hit a couple good shots to keep his team in a relatively safe spot from the next elimination challenge, but I can’t see those two not taking the “walk of shame” soon.

Three things Dave did…

1. Keep Your Mouth Off My Ball – He’s definitely obnoxious, but I couldn’t see how this could be seen as more than just plentiful encouragement of his opponent. Maybe it’s too much. Obviously Casey didn’t like Dave telling his ball to “Get Up” or “Be there”.

2. Stomp Down the Divot – He certainly acted like a jerk about it, especially to the official that he told to Get the hell out of my way so I can hit.” David took exception to the fact that he couldn’t stomp down a divot in the hitting area.  Strange rule for this competition, but he didn’t need to get rude about it when the officials denied his request.

3. 3rd Shot Outburst – He hit 3 nice shots in the draw/fade competition, no doubt. But his outburst after hitting the 3rd was not golfer-like. I’ve never seen anyone do that. But then again, I’ve never been in a competition like this. Dave is clearly a different dude.  Hit your shots, be excited, but outbursts like that aren’t necessary.

Other than all this…No team was eliminated this past Tuesday.  Teams hit to greens from several fairway distances, having to play fades and draws around the “wall”.  Nothing too exciting.  It will be fun to see if anyone gets into it with David on the next episode, because you can feel the tension in the air.
