Contestants revealed for Golf Channel's "Big Break Ireland"

ORLANDO, Fla. – This fall, 12 professionals will journey to the Emerald Isle with hopes of putting their careers on the fast track when Golf Channel’s “Big Break” series returns for its 16th season.

“Big Break Ireland,” premiering Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. ET, will feature an international cast of six men and six women competing against each other in an attempt to make their dreams of playing alongside the world’s top golfers a reality. Filmed at the K Club in Kildare, Ireland, the ultimate winner will be awarded two exemptions from the four exemptions up for grabs – which represent events on the LPGA, European Tour and Ladies European Tour – among other prizes.

One of the tournament exemptions will be the European Tour’s Irish Open in 2012. This year’s Irish Open, will include Waterville, Ireland, native and “Big Break Ireland” contestant Mark Murphy, who is competing this week on a sponsor’s exemption.
The competitors on Big Break Ireland are:
  • Mallory Blackwelder (24, Versailles, Ky.) – The daughter of 13-year LPGA veteran Myra Blackwelder and professional caddie Worth Blackwelder. After traveling worldwide with the Ladies European Tour in 2010, Mallory is competing full-time on the Futures Tour in 2011.
  • Annie Brophy (24, Spokane, Wash.) – A rookie on the LPGA Futures Tour and Notre Dame alum, Brophy is looking to capture the Luck of the Irish.
  • Joe Campbell (23, Cheltenham, England / Charlotte, N.C.) – The youngest competitor on the series, Campbell also is the longest hitter off the tee. He works at Carolina Golf Club, saving up money for the mini-tourevents in 2011. 
  • Kelly Jacques (25, Thornton, Colo.) – Jacques made her return to competitive golf in 2011 after taking time away from the game following graduation at the University of Oklahoma. Currently competing on a limited schedule on the Futures Tour, Jacques has a new, fresh outlook on the game.
  • Bennett Maki (26, Orlando, Fla.) – Unlike a lot of his playing competitors, Maki is starting his professional career. A model and actor, Maki has appeared on numerous commercials that have aired on Golf Channel, which has served as a supplemental source of income to achieving his dream of competing on the PGA Tour.
  • Matt Melrose (27, Mulanje Malawi / Scottsdale, Ariz.) – A veteran of several mini tours and the Gateway Tour, Melrose is competing without ever having watched a previous series.
  • Mark Murphy (34, Waterville, Ireland / New Orleans, La.) – An Ireland native, Murphy grew up 4 hours south of the K Club in Waterville. Currently residing in New Orleans, La., Murphy’s dream of playing on the PGA Tour is still alive, although the results as a professional golfer have not come tofruition like he hoped.
  • Nina Rodriguez (27, San Jose, Calif.) – Currently competing on the LPGA Futures Tour, Rodriguez is a late bloomer to the game, deciding to focus solely on golf at age 19.
  • Nicole Smith (24, Riverside, Calif.) – Currently living out of her car, Smith is competing full-time on the Futures Tour. The alumfrom the University of Tennessee is looking to follow in the footsteps of “Big Break Sandals” competitor Ryann O’Toole, her close friend and travel companion.
  • Julien Trudeau (30, Montreal, Quebec / Phoenix) – The lone Canadian, Trudeau is looking to continue the recent success Canadians have had on Big Break. A veteran of several mini tours in the U.S. and Canada, Trudeau was ready to walk away from the game when a friend suggested he audition and give professional golf one more try.
  • Andy Walker (36, Phoenix) – A veteran of several professional golf tours, Walker has yet to have that breakthrough year. In addition to competing on the professional circuits, he also is a professional golf instructor, assistant golf coach at South Mountain Community College.
  • Whitney Wright (26, Greenville, S.C.) – Girlfriend of “Big Break Indian Wells” competitor Robbie Biershenk, Wright is competing on the Futures Tour and supplements her income by competing in charitable competitions on the golf course.
Tom Abbott and Stephanie Sparks return as co-hosts for the series.

Tools of the Trade: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver

The TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver is designed to give you more power than ever before. Featuring a long shaft, the SuperFast 2.0 Driver is a lighter weight club with low-drag aerodynamics for faster swings speeds. A new sleek design features a white crown and black clubface which allows you to easy align and stay on top of your game.

Featuring a new flat white crown that reduces glare and improves alignment, the Burner SuperFast 2.0 driver from TaylorMade has a 460cc titanium head with a longer, lighter shaft and weighs only 279 grams for maximum clubhead speed. Its enhanced aerodynamics package removes the Dual Crown in favor of a drag-reducing rounded crown and lowered sole for optimal trajectories. For more forgiveness, TaylorMade has given this club the largest face of any TaylorMade driver to date at 4550 cubic mm.

Tips For Staying Cool On The Golf Course

Okay fairway warriors, those comfortable spring days have officially given way to the dog-days of summer. What to do? Stay inside and play Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters? No way! If you follow some of this advice you’ll be be able to play safe golf all summer long.

The number one rule when dealing with heat on the golf course is stay hydrated.
  • Always keep a water bottle with you and fill it up at the various water cooler stations located around the course.
  • Water and sports drinks are best, try to avoid sugary soft drinks that contain caffeine.
  • Start hydrating before you head to the course.
  • If you are prone to heavy perspiration, you may lose too much sodium. Add a little extra sodium (don’t go overboard) to your meals prior to your round.
  • Carry a salty snack: banana, nuts, apple, or pretzels, or raisins.
  • Make sure you keep drinking throughout your round. A good rule of thumb during a round of golf is to drink about 3 ounces for every hole played, more is recommended in extremely hot and humid conditions.
  • Avoid alcohol (I know. I know.) – but beer and liquor will only contribute to your dehydration.

Dress Properly
Lija Fluid Vital Top
Sick to clothes that are loose-fitting and made with moisture wicking fibers and fabrics with UV protection. Wear lightweight, loose-fitted clothing in a color that won’t attract the sun like black or other dark colors do. Some of our favorites include:

Sun Protection
The sun is a wonderful thing, but it can cause lots of damage, too.
Cool Down
  • Take a cold shower before and after your round.
  • Keep a cold towel on hand to use on your face and neck during your round.
  • Pace yourself – keep your movements slow and measured.

Watch for Dehydration – Signs includes:

Headache, weakness, light-headedness, irritability, thirst, muscle cramps, nausea or vomiting, loss of mental sharpness, excessive heat on your head and neck, or a sharp decrease in your level of play

Mallory Blackwelder Scores Her First Hole-in-One

{ Mallory Blackwelder - Golf4Her ambassador }
Congratulations to Mallory Blackwelder on scoring her first ACE today! It happened on the 142-yard, par three, 13th hole using her TaylorMade 7-iron during a Pro-Am leading up to the International at Concord, this week's LPGA Futures Tour stop. The event is being held at the popular Beaver Meadow Golf Course in New Hampshire, their oldest public golf course.

"I just made my first ever hole in one!!!!!! Ahhhh! :)", Mallory tweeted to her 2000+ fans moments after she scored her ace.

The odds of a pro golfer making a hole in one is 2500 to 1, the odds for the rest of us is 1 in 12,500.

We're so excited for Mallory. This is going to be a break out year for her. Have to say, she's looking good in her 4all by JoFit outfit, too!

Follow all the action this week on the official website for the International at Concord website,  July 22 - 24, 2011
