Former Irish golfer Annie Brophy ('10) will be among six men and six women headed to Ireland in search of an $80,000 pot o' gold and two Tour exemptions as part of the Golf Channel's reality series "Big Break". The show premieres Tuesday (Sept. 20) at 9:00 p.m. (ET). The show's premise is to award an aspiring professional golfer exemptions into selected events on certain tours. The contestants engage in a series of golfing challenges, with the weakest performer eliminated after each challenge. At the end of the competition, the winner receives prizes including one or more exemptions into a top professional golf tournament. Check out Brophy's "Big Break" video profile, which includes a chip shot through the goal posts of Notre Dame Stadium. While at Notre dame, Brophy was just the second four-time all-BIG EAST honoree in program history. A team co-captain during her senior campaign, Brophy left the program with the fourth-best career stroke average in program history with a 76.60 mark.
