John Lepak's Final Words


Big Break Indian Wells was one of the best experiences of my life.  Putting yourself through such high pressure situations really tells a lot about a person’s character.  I thought that the challenges and shots we hit were fair and masterfully planned to give the viewer full drama and excitement. 

Overall, I was pleased with my performance throughout the show. I come away with pride and satisfaction knowing that I put up a good fight. What I will take away most from my experience is the many new friends I have made.  The competitors on the show as well as the Golf Channel staff were truly remarkable people and it was an honor getting to spend time with them.  Since the show, I've been staying busy: I teach golf here in Southern California and really enjoy spreading the game. I also have a series of tournaments coming up on the Gateway Tour and I'm gonna try to build momentum heading into Q School.  My band 'The New Grooves' has recently finished recording a studio album which we are very pleased with. Many of the songs on the CD were written on The Big Break so I owe Golf Channel a big thanks for all the inspiration.  Also, a big thanks to all the fans and supporters of the show!
