Recap - Shotmakers Finale... Finally
If you’ve been following along, you already know where GLT Golf stands on Golf Channel’s swing-and-miss attempt at reality tv, Shotmakers. If you haven’t, and the first sentence didn’t give it away, check out this article to catch yourself up. If you think I'm going to backpedal or apologize in this article, you’re going to be disappointed.
But that’s okay. If you watched the Shotmakers finale on April 30th, you’re probably already pretty disappointed, anyway… unless you enjoy cruel and unusual punishment, in which case, we can probably find a job for you here at GLT HQ.
I’m not going to waste time going over the basics of Shotmakers again. Either you’ve watched it and know how it works/what it’s all about or you haven’t. If you haven’t watched, I envy you – God, I envy you. If you have watched, and somehow made it out sober enough to still comprehend what you’re reading, you have my condolences.
Anyway, if for whatever reason you care about spoilers,
reevaluate your life choices skip the next paragraph.
I’m not going to get cute here, I’ll just summarize without the fluff. Team Warriors won. That’s Nikki Bondura, 25, a lifestyle blogger and co-owner of Women with Drive, and Brad Barnes, 23, a runner-up in the 2017 TopGolf Tour Championship (along with previously eliminated Shotmakers competitor Matt Cousens.)
This means neither of the inaugural (and hopefully last) Shotmakers champions are professional golfers, which I guess can be considered a bright spot for the show. For their triumph, the two were awarded $50,000 and a one-year membership to TopGolf, which is basically the equivalent of getting a year’s supply of churros for winning a churro-eating contest at Costco. Actually, no, scratch that… watching a churro eating contest at Costco would probably be ten times more exciting than Shotmakers.
