Whatta show! We pulled off the biggest upset so far this series, we beat the boys in the benching challenge with the 1 stroke deficit. Blair and Lori played so well and I think it was a great show for Blair’s confidence; she really needed to play well in that challenge and she did! Like I said before the challenge started “if this backfires on the boys its going to be the biggest mistake so far”! And it did.
We all know the results of the benching challenge, but the reason we got into the situation is because we played so poorly in the flop wall challenge and we just couldn’t get it back in the drive accuracy since we were so far back. Watching the show it was so frustrating because we really screwed up the first challenge and how we approached it. Looking at the challenge before we made teams, and chose the order in which we played, we ladies figured the first wall was going to be the easiest part and the second wall was going to be very hard since it was so tall and we had to get it so close to the hole…..We were wrong! That first wall posed a big challenge for everyone but Blake, he rocked it! It only took him 2 shots to place the ball perfectly, it was amazing. On TV that shot didn’t look that hard, but being there it was very difficult we should have played it so different. In that challenge Blair, Elena and myself felt very confident so we were all going to go for the second wall and Brenda and Lori were going to go first, this was probably a mistake. The first wall was so important because everyone was trying to get it up and down fast and that’s harder than being able to have room to fly it. We tried our best and now we know, but I would have loved to take a rip at that wall!
Having not hit a single shot in the morning I really wanted to make up for it the second part of the challenge and I did! Getting 2 points was crucial to keeping us in it, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough. Its hard to come from that far back.
Watching the show I now see how the guys are handling the game. When your there you don’t see what there saying or the reasons why they are doing what they are doing. I find it interesting and now see that it was actually a smart move on their part to send Blair and Lori to the challenge. Lori was playing well and Blair was struggling. It made perfect sense to get a struggling player to bring down a strong one…problem is it didn’t work! hahaha
The ladies played great and I really look forward to seeing if we take advantage of the momentum shift?????
Thanks for watching and look forward to next week!
