    You pick 7 golfers, 5 from groups of the world rankings on Monday 7/17 (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 winning 72 hole score (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.

    ChiTownJoe will admin this thing and give updates after cut on Friday, Sat, and Sun.

    You must have your money in before Thurs 7/20 first tee time,no pay, no play.

    Hard to get enough sign-ups for a +EV contest[no rake +10% added]?
    Not a lot going on right now,good way to follow the Open and have an interest in it too.
    If this doesn't fly the PGA is coming right up in August,maybe try a relaunch then.

    Will be happy to do two entries to help out.

    As mentioned earlier in the thread, people probably skipped over this thread, not realizing it's a contest.

    "The Open starts on Thursday"
    A little late but,maybe JK could change the thread title and add the word "contest" to it?
    Something like:
    "EOG British Open golf contest starts Thursday,enter now."

    My mistake, should have added Contest to thread title.

    Thanks Yisman

    Right now we have 5
    Me
    Scrimmage
    Brayden
    Big Runner
    Yisman

    I'll go ahead with it.

    JK, if you see this add Contest to thread title.

    Any of you looked at Lou Riccio, the Columbia professor who has a forecasting model apparently based upon player's performance and the statistical make-up of a course?
