Any interest in a MASTERS contest?

Very strange, I cut and pasted the picks from your post and got all the 14 entries correct except your Group D pick. It is virtually impossible to insert another golfer in the middle the text. I suspect your post was edited later by JK or another moderator (for which the edit doesn't show up).
Not guilty.

Congrats TryTryTry Masters contest winner, nice job.

TieBreaker for 2nd, both WACO #1 & ttaylor89 had 275 as tiebreaker so will split 2nd place. Brayden tied for 2nd but eliminated on tiebreaker.

I'll wait for ComPTR Bob to verify, will get money out tonight.

Thanks for organizing the contest, Joe.

See you in August.
 
Just out of curiosity, since you had them all sent to you, why didn't you post the picks?

Not that I'm claiming any hocus-pocus, but allowing a contestant, i.e ChiTownJoe, to be an intermediary of posting the picks should be avoided, if only for appearance sake.
Obviously there seems to be some kind of conspiracy going on, my picks were all recorded wrong, i did in fact have the perfect board. I'd like my $50 back please.

Thanks Chi Townjoe, ,JK and ComputerBob for the contest. But the only reason I didn't take WOODS is I figured half the guys would take him. When I saw only 3 guys took him, I was in shoc,k. What a great masters!! My team let me down the last day but it was fun. Congrats to TRY, he got hot went it counted!!

I'm all for having somebody else post picks who is NOT in contest

I didn't think about it because I trust Joe implicitly.

But for future tournaments, I can post the plays to avoid any appearance of impropriety.
