Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de The Big Break

S01E01 Episode 1 07/10/2003 Flying in from around the country, The Big Break contestants meet for the first time and, within hours, seem like old friends. Shown to their accommodations at Treetops Resort - a remote bunkhouse on the edge of the property - and provided information about the week ahead, they are eager to get started. After a quick introduction to co-host Katherine Roberts, they are off to the course for the first challenge of the series. Because no one will be eliminated in the first show, the contestants are loose and having fun. The first skills challenge will test their ability to execute a knock-down shot and they will be hoping for a "smashing" success.
S01E02 Episode 2 14/10/2003 Famed golf instructor and The Big Break co-host Rick Smith meets the contestants and braces them for their first serious day of competition. Trying to knock the ball close to the pin is one thing, but hitting a moving target?

S01E03 Episode 3 21/10/2003 Touch and accuracy with a short iron is the show's first challenge. Contestants scramble to beat the clock and end up as the golfer with the most points to win the all-important Mulligan. Then, in the elimination challenge, finesse around the green is the key to success.
S01E04 Episode 4 28/10/2003 Contestants try to imitate PGA TOUR star Phil Mickelson's talent of shooting the ball virtually straight up in the air - the extreme flop shot.

S01E05 Episode 5 04/11/2003 Seven golfers remain. The skills challenge forces the golfers to choose the shots they believe will deliver the biggest payoff. The more risk, the larger the reward, but common sense may be the best option of all.

S01E06 Episode 6 11/11/2003 All of the six golfers remaining have to show their speed in this team skills challenge, but don't forget accuracy.

Members of the losing team in the skills challenge face off in the elimination challenge, which will determine who the big hitters are.
S01E07 Episode 7 18/11/2003 The number of contestants has been cut in half, with five remaining.

S01E08 Episode 8 25/11/2003 With four contestants remaining, each will be partnered for a team skills challenge. Skill and strategy will reign supreme as the teams compete in a Ryder Cup-style event, with only the two members of the losing team going to the elimination round. Each will rely on his strengths by picking his favorite shots from a variety of choices. The poorest performer will go home.
S01E09 Episode 9 02/12/2003 The remaining three contestants test their command of a wedge in the show's skills challenge.
