The Big Break’s Meghan Hardin has a nice set of…golf clubs
It happened again. Another season of Big Break on Golf Channel was fast approaching and I had seen some of the early advertisements and player profiles. Much like the other seasons of the golf reality series, there was one contestant that caught my attention, and this season of Big Break Atlantis was no different. For me, there is usually one contestant that stands out among the other contestants before viewers even get to see them hit a golf shot.
This time around, that contestant was Meghan Hardin. Unfortunately, her tenure on this season’s show was limited to one episode. However, Meghan was kind enough to give GolfWRX some time to provide us with some insight into her experience on the show and her direction as a newly minted professional golfer.
I began my interview by providing her with a description GolfWRX, and Megan was quick to tell me that an explanation was unnecessary because she is a member of the site as are several of her friends. She is well aware of the variety of topics covered and has paid attention to what the readership has written about her. I explained that for a variety of reasons, she seemed to be the favorite contestant of the show, and she responded with laugh, “Yeah, I know.”
At 19 years old, Meghan is the youngest contestant since the show’s inception. She terminated her brief collegiate career and status as an amateur to turn professional which is required of all contestants. Meghan said her motivation to turn professional was not solely motivated by the Big Break, and she believes the professional mini tours provide a higher level of competition than collegiate golf. She explained that not having to worry about the other demands of college life, such as studying, papers and tests will redirect her focus in obtaining status on the LPGA Tour.
