"Big Break" Contestants in Texas

A couple of the popular contestants from "The Big Break III" are in Texas during the Futures Tour's swing through the Lone Star State.

The Jalapeno Futures Golf Classic was played April 22-24 at Palm View Golf Course in McAllen. Jan Dowling finished tied for 20th, shooting 73-74-70 - 217. That's the best finish yet this year for any of the BBIII women in their Futures Tour appearances. Valeria Ochoa was also entered in the event, but withdrew with an injury.

The Futures Tour moves on to El Paso this week for the IOS Futures Golf Classic at Underwood Golf Complex (Sunrise Course). The preliminary player roster shows Valeria Ochoa and Jan Dowling scheduled to compete. If you're interested in attending, visit the tournament page.

There's another "Big Break" contestant in Texas full-time. Randy Block, from the original season, lives and works in San Antonio. He was manager of GolfCraft until that pro shop sold out to Edwin Watts; then he spent some time caddying and now works in the pro shop of The Resort Course at La Cantera.


  1. I love the BB show. It was interesting to read about the Texas connections. I don't get to watch ever one but when they have one of the all day ones on the weekends I get to watch the entire thing and that is nice.

    Valeria was the best. I wish her all the success in the world. I hope to one day be on the same course as that contagious energetic latin lady. Get well soon!
