These guys, who have both performed amazingly throughout the series, will be laying it all on the line tonight as we find out who will be crowned champion of the Big Break Greenbrier.  There's a lot more on the line that you may realize...  The winner will receive a prize package worth about $80,000, including $50,000 cash, an Adams Golf equipment deal and a $10,000 gift certificate to Dick’s Sporting Goods. The winner also receives an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2013 Greenbrier Classic, which goes July 4-7 of next year on the course where the Big Break was taped. 

We caught up with James and asked him about his experience on Big Break, "It gave me a lot of confidence going forward, that's for sure.  I realized that I am a great player".  Regardless of tonights outcome, I think both players have proven that they are phenomenal golfers.  It's also proven to the countless views who are in pursuit of a similar dream, never to give up hope.  "My main advice to the younger generation, is to follow your instinct and intuition, both on the course and in your career choice.  You already know what you want, so go get it."

We'd like to wish both players all the best in the finale tonight (airing on the Golf Channel at 9:00 Eastern Time), as well as throughout the 2013 season ahead.  May the best man win!
