Julien Trudeau - November 22, 2011


Trudeau is a finalist on Big Break Ireland and the Season Finale airs tonight at 9PM ET on Golf Channel. He felt that Big Break would be the right path because he has had a lot of friends who were on the show and he thought that it would be good for him too. The show proved to be much bigger in terms of production than he thought. A tournament director on a mini-tour recommended the show to him and he auditioned and he was asked to be on the show.

He is from Canada and lives in Arizona so playing golf in Ireland was very different. The K Club is a parkland course but when you add the wind and other elements, it becomes uniquely difficult but he was able to bring to the show his experience playing golf in the wind in college while attending Wichita State.

When it comes to stroke play golf, the nice thing is that you do not have to win to receive a nice check. But in the Big Break, you either win it all or receive nothing. The pressure will be on and you have to bring your best game because the situation demands nothing less.

He is currently in Daytona Beach, FL where he is caddying for fellow Big Break Cast Member Mallory Blackwelder in a mini-tour event as she prepares for the Final Stage of LPGA Tour Q-School. He will be watching the show with Mallory as well as with a few other fellow Big Break Ireland cast members.
