ORLANDO, Fla. – In advance of the season premiere of Big Break Ireland, Golf Channel today launched the series’ official microsite – www.GolfChannel.com/BigBreak.
The new site features text and video bios about the 12 contestants, photos and preview videos, including a three-minute trailer that gives viewers a sneak peek into the drama and excitement that will unfold during the 10-week series. Weekly blogs from the producers and contestants also will post on the site, and fans will have the opportunity to opt in to become a “text club” member and receive weekly mobile alerts.
Big Break Ireland’s Facebook page, (www.facebook.com/GolfChannel.BigBreak) will allow fans to interact with fellow fans and Golf Channel, as well as receive weekly bonus clips and features.
Big Break Ireland, premiering Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. ET, will feature an international cast of six men and six women competing against each other in an attempt to make their lifelong dreams of playing alongside the world’s top golfers a reality. Filmed at The K Club in Kildare, Ireland, the ultimate winner will be awarded two exemptions from the four exemptions up for grabs – which represent events on the LPGA Tour, European Tour and Ladies European Tour.
The Big Break show concept pits highly skilled golfers against each other in a variety of challenges that test their physical skills and mental toughness. During Big Break Ireland, one contestant will be eliminated each week, with the last person standing crowned Big Break champion.
