The season premier of Big Break Myrtle Beach will air Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Golf Channel. The network’s most popular original show, Big Break is making its long anticipated appearance in Myrtle Beach.
Twelve aspiring young professionals – six men, six women – competed on four Myrtle Beach golf courses in hopes of winning Big Break, and, along with it, an opportunity that could launch them onto the game’s biggest stages. The 11-episode series was filmed in June.
Joining long-time host Tom Abbott as co-host for Big Break Myrtle Beach will be Golf Channel analyst and LPGA Tour professional Paige Mackenzie. A seven-year veteran of the LPGA Tour who also currently serves as co-host for Morning Drive, Mackenzie will provide analysis from a player’s perspective throughout the series, detailing the pressure the competitors will face with each challenge.
Big Break has produced several players that have gone on to success at the game’s highest levels. Among the show’s alumni are PGA Tour winners Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey and Matt Every, and U.S. Solheim Cup participants Kristy McPherson, Gerina Piller and Ryann O’Toole.
In addition to earning cash, prizes and an exemption into a PGA or LPGA Tour event, the player who emerges from Big Break Myrtle Beach will have earned the right to believe they are capable of following in the footsteps of Gainey, Every, O’Toole and McPherson.
The Dye, Love and Fazio courses have all been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses, while Pawleys Plantation, a Jack Nicklaus design, is as challenging and scenic as any course along the Grand Strand.
New episodes air each Tuesday at 9 p.m.
