Here is what the golf community thinks;

First two episodes had half the competitors pitching drivers that don't conform.

Now the "winners" are having a friendly closest to and long drive competition. Seeing half the competitors look like they've never even hit a club really turns me off from the show. Oh and according to the monitor the contestants all hit it further than PGA tour pro Kevin Streelman….

Wilson has to be pretty embarrassed by this so far.

I wish they had just said they wouldn't necessarily do a product launch, and they just wanted to see what design would hit the ball the farthest, with no worry about conformity. I think it'd be interesting to see what a club could do without restriction.

I think it's to have an "everyman" type player involved and not just professionals and golf industry folks.

I'm with you. I'm not really a fan of the elimination style show either. How many times does anyone design something mostly correct the first time? It's a little too gimmicky for me. Like the bachelor but for unpaid R&D work.

Also, it doesn't help when you get 5 minutes of the actual show followed by 10 minutes of commercials.

I stumbled across this randomly and watched about 5 minutes of it before switching because I just couldn't take it. The show is truly awful and feels completely pointless. Who thought this was a good idea?

Brian seemingly knows nothing about golf equipment. Wilson spent an awful lot on advertising, production, and Brian. What they won't get is a Driver that we will buy. Complete waste of time and money for Wilson Golf. Having anyone build their next driver tells me one thing. Wilson has run out of ideas.
