JLepp Gets Lucky On Big Break

A favourite line of a certain golf magazine editor, when he actually gets out to play golf on occasion, goes something like, "I'd rather be lucky than good anytime."

The line is generally offered in reference to one of his shots ending up in a much better place than it really deserved based on how it was struck to begin with. 

Hearing that from a weekend wannabe is one thing, but when a truly talented professional admits to being the benefactor of 'lady luck', well that's kind of unusual and equally refreshing at the same time.

Mind you, we shouldn't be at all surprised that someone of James Lepp's character openly admits to such an occurance, as it is in keeping with his very likeable, honest and down-to-earth personna.

In the recently completed episode 4 of the Big Break NFL in Puerto Rico, it was Team Rypien's Lepp who came up with the episode changing shot in the flop-shot challenge.

Keep Your Head Down And Your Heart Up

Over the last few years a dedicated and very talented group of women have represented Canada in a way we can all be proud of both with their excellent play and the manner in which they have carried themselves while wearing the Maple Leaf abroad. A fairly regular member of this most worthy contingent has also taken the time to share some of her and her countrymates' experiences as they competed in the Irish and British Senior Women's Championships. They may have also taken in the odd historic site and partaken of a pint or two along the way. They are Canadian after all. - ed.

My name is Karen Pultz and I am a proud golf member at Peace Portal Golf Club in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

Welcome to the 2013 British Senior Ladies Amateur at the venerable Dunluce championship course at Royal Portrush, September 17-19, 2013.
 
This is my 4th time participating since 2008 and I have placed from T-4th to missed cuts. All memorable experiences. 
 
We are in Northern Ireland at the very, very northern tip in County Antrim. You can see, hear and smell the sea. 
 
Spectacular cliff views abound and this week features a raging sea that splatters our car with sea foam when we venture out.

Last year at this time we followed the progress of Abbotsford, B.C's own James Lepp as he swung, shot and sauced his way into the final twosome on the Big Break Greenbrier only to lose in a heartbreaker at the end. 

Well....he's baaaaack!

And breaking glass at the speed of sound once again.
