Holey Moley: Never Count Out the Beard (8/1)

Never Count Out the Beard (8/1)

ABC’S HOLIEST, MOLIEST MINI-GOLF COMPETITION SERIES, ‘HOLEY MOLEY,’
IS ALL NEW, THURSDAY, AUG. 1

The Show That Makes Miniature Golf Look Huge Returns With 12 New Competitors Ready to Try Their Hand on the Most Epic Miniature Golf Course Ever Created

Executive Producer Stephen Curry, Commentators Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore, and Sideline Correspondent Jeannie Mai Return for More ‘Holey Moley’ Competition

“Never Count Out the Beard” – On this week’s brand-new “Holey Moley,” it’s east coast versus west coast when a local New Jersey contestant faces off with California native, aka “the wizard of mini-golf” in a round that culminates in a sudden-death putt-off tiebreaker. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran’s doppelgänger takes on “Tee’d Off” and a mini-golf trick shot artist shows off his skills. The distraction on this week’s “The Distractor” is none other than a mime who not only does his job of distracting two competitors but also scares Rob Riggle in the process! During the final round on “Mt. Holey Moley,” a competitor loses her grip on the infamous zipline, costing herself a vital one-stroke penalty. “Never Count Out the Beard” airs THURSDAY, AUG. 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.

Every Thursday, “Holey Moley,” ABC’s No. 1 mini-golf competition series with Rob Riggle, Joe Tessitore, Jeannie Mai and resident golf pro Stephen Curry features 12 mini-golfers facing off in a series of head-to-head matchups. Winners will move on to round two and from there, only three will make it to the final hole – the daunting “Mt. Holey Moley.” At the end of each episode, one winner will be crowned and walk away with the $25,000 prize, “The Golden Putter” trophy and coveted “Holey Moley” plaid jacket.
