The Game That Inspires Awe and Makes Us Wonder, Who Came Up With This and Why?
Executive Producer Stephen Curry, Commentators Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore, and Sideline Correspondent Jeannie Mai Return to the ‘Holey Moley’ Course for Extreme Mini-Golf Competition
“Everyone Can Be Terrible!” – This week’s episode of “Holey Moley” sees a new batch of diverse contestants taking on the most epic mini-golf course ever created. An experienced player, self-proclaimed “putting ninja” faces off against a casual, recreational mini-golf player on “Log Roll,” where play-by-play commentator Joe Tessitore realizes his striking resemblance to the hole’s own Putt Bunyan. Across the course, a math teacher goes head-to-head with a product spokesmodel on “Dutch Courage,” where the infamous windmills claim their latest victim. Over at “Arc De Trigolf,” an honest contestant dubbed the “Holey Moley Messiah” self-reports an accidental tap that costs him an all-important extra stroke, and a summer beach party pops up on “The Distractor.” Elsewhere, sideline correspondent Jeannie Mai and course mascot Sir Goph get fast and furious in a golf cart race; and Stephen Curry, “Holey Moley”’s Most Valuable Pro, admits even he is scared of the daunting final hole, “Mt. Holey Moley.” This episode of “Holey Moley” airs THURSDAY, AUG. 15 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (TV-PG) Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.
