Starts next Thursday (6/13), same format as Masters/PGA contest. Back at Pebble Beach, love the Prime Time golf.

$50 per entry/max two entries

If we have 6 entries or more contest will go.

EOG will add 10% to prize pool, if we have 10 or more entries will pay 2nd place.

Entries PM'd to ComptrBob

I'll post field on Monday,

I'm in, need at least 5 more entries. Deadline to get picks into Bob and money to me will be 6/13 at 8:00 am CST


RULES:

You pick 7 golfers, 5 from groups of the world rankings on Monday 6/10 (I'll list everyone on Monday morning). One golfer from golfers ranked 1-6, one golfer from 7-12, one from 13-18, one from 19-24, and 25-30. Then 2 golfers ranked > 30.



*The winner will be determined by the combined 72 hole total of your 7 golfers. Lowest score wins.


**Tie breaker: The guess closest to the score of the man holding the US Open Trophy on Sunday (over/under par).


***If any of your golfers do not make the cut that golfer will receive the greater of: 1) his Thursday / Friday total doubled or 2)one plus the highest 4 day total in the remaining field of golfers.


****If your golfer withdrawals from the tournament at any time for any reason after the commencement of play that golfer will receive one plus the highest 4 day total in the remaining field of golfers.

I'll throw away another $50.

I was proud of my Brooks Koepka selection in the PGA Championship but it took more than one winning prediction to win the contest.

I appreciate the format of the event.

Jeez, Brad Faxon just said Henrik Stenson needs to get off the shneid and win a MAJOR. Guess he missed the epic duel at the British Open against Phil.

Fox coverage sucks
