Big Break Disney & Andrew Giuliani

For those of you who are following the latest season of the Golf Channel’s Big Break, you’ll by now have heard of the aspiring PGA Tour player Andrew Giuliani, son of Rudy Giuliani.  You’ll also probably have realized that the guy has the gift of gab, and it seems to be rubbing some of his competitors the wrong way (and we’re only 3 shows deep). 

I’ve been trying not to get caught up in the "Anti-Andrew" fever that seems to be spreading on the show, but I have to admit that it’s getting contagious.  While the tensions begin to flare on the show, I got to thinking if everyone’s just picking on little Andrew.  Or maybe they’re just jealous of his last name.  Either way, it’s making for some great T.V.  What do you think.  Is Andrew Giuliani just plain annoying, or is he getting picked on by the other guys?

    It would have been really fun to see the brothers play each other in the elimination. Since they obviously can’t do anything without each other, having one send the other walking would have been great.

    I love reading these comments on how all these guys are talentless. I will give you all Blake. That cannot be denied. Mike and Tony have played in professional events. That should say quite a bit. After all, not anyone can just play in a pro event. I feel Kevin has some talent, but definitely not enough to perform well in the tour event provided he would win Big Break. Andrew, while he did have a solid game, I could not stand to watch him. Not just because he talked so much, but because he showed no emotion on the course (maybe because he suffered the consequences of showing too much emotion, like Blake, while he was at Duke). While Blake showed his emotions way too much and took it too far, showing no emotion and acting like a robot on the course provides no excitement. Big Break really needs to make major changes.

    I re-recorded the episode in which Guillani lost.

    On the final hole before the playoff hole, he hit a 6 iron
    a bit too hard and the ball hit the green and rolled off.

    In the camera shots of him as he was preparing to putt
    ( from the fringe by 2 inches) he picked up his ball (off the
    green) ball with his hand and improved his lie as he sat it back
    down, an unmistakeable oblivious infraction of golf rules.

    This event is clearly evident via the filming done.
    Nobody called a foul and and any altered rules were not
    discussed. Really Amazing !!!!

    Golf on Big Break is not according to the rules , at least
    for a Guillini – type.

    Check it out for yourself.

    Big Break needs to EXPLAIN please ???!!

    Since Andrew has left I quit watching the show. I have never seen such poor sports as the rest of those contestants. Kevin is the only other one that was okay. The rest are poor sports and spoiled “brats” for lack of a better term. I can’t imagine those guys on the tour with their petty attitudes and poor sportsmanship. Very disapointing bunch of young men.

    I am thinking that Tony is a bit light in the loafers.

    i saw that too. guiliani cheated. He needs to learn the USGA rules, Not the NYGA rules, when your dad is making them up for you as you go!
    Who lifts their ball on the fringe & places it? He didn’t even use a marker? What the hell is that?
    Bush league. Andrew… come down here and play copperhead in march with me, we’ll see if you can break 100!

    I heard the term camra angel the other day when refering to famous PGA Pros who when on camra are angels but are really jerks. This may be why golf chanel thinks they should allow the same behavier on this stupid show. When there really the jerks.

    Hate to see Mike win this thing. He did make a good come back, but his sportsmanship is lousy. I can see him in the PGA sticking a club in the ground after a bad shot. Sorry to see this guy win. No class at all.

    I agree, hated the final, I didn’t route for either one, and with mike tying to impress his but buddy Blake by slamming his club into the ground, absolutely no CLASS, he played well at the end I will give him that, but with the temper on these guys is unbelievable, and they have zero respect for the game and especially the course, I could never imagine destroying a golf course like these guys have, if I was the greens keeper I would personally send him a letter to grow up and get your ass down here and spend a few days working the course, I don’t know if that is mikes normal behavior or not on the course, like I said before I think it was all a show for his boyfriend, who by the way stood there watching the match and looked like he was about to cry, he hated the fact that Kevin was playing and not him, man it was all over his little puss face, face the facts Blake, Kevin is better than you, he deserved to be there and you did not, you completely suck at golf and with your attitude and that bald dome of yours you couldn’t sell tiger a porn star so start applying at McDonalds and get ready for a long career in the fast food business, glad this series is over and I hope the golf channel will have some good JUNIOR talent next time, until next series, later boys!!!!!!!!!!

    oh and one more thing, i know there are days when the puts fall and days when they dont, man kevin had 5 or 6 puts that just lipped out, if it was a day when they dropped he would of been close in the match, just wasnt getting the brakes, he should of easily been 2 under, i didnt expect much from him but he really played a damn good round and should be proud of himself, the other hot heads should learn a few lessons from him, he hits a few bad shots and still manages to smile, he is enjoying it, isnt that what golf is suposed to be enjoyable? good job kev!!!!!!!!!!

    Well guys, it’s officially over. I’m not crazy about the final show or the outcome either. Mike did step up under the pressure and make a nice finish, but the guy is still an idiot. I can say that this was without a doubt the worst Big Break yet. The poor sportsmanship. The overall lousy caliber of players. Just a bad selection of players for a national show. I’m looking forward to the next BB with the ladies. They always seem to be much entertaining than the guys. Thanks for all the comments. We got a really good discussion going on this one. Stay tuned for the next BB and we’ll do it again.

    And the award for the two biggest babies on Big Break Disney goes to……Mike Perez and Blake Moore. I would like to thank the both of you on consistently displaying how NOT to behave on a golf course. Your actions are truly inspiring. The next time I get frustrated, no matter playing golf or not, I will reflect on your actions. Oh, I must admit, that I would have really appreciated the reaction of Mike Perez, had he lost. Maybe he would have thrown his whole golf bag in a hissy tantrum fit. Big Break Disney champion he is NOT in my book. Instead, he is merely a cancer to the sport of golf.

    What do you think the chances are that Mike and Blake have seen these postings? I would hope a friend has let them know about them and maybe, just maybe it would make thwem see just how of “bad sports” they are.

      That would be great if they have seen the commentary here. Although I can’t imagine they don’t realize how immature and ridiculous they were after seeing the episodes for themselves. I would have been embarrassed.

    Blake was an embarrement to how golf is played. Slamming clubs, bad attitude are not what you want to see. Blake should have been thrown off out of the competition. Mike Perez was also caught up in the clic as well.
