    Looks like there is a difference in how missing the cut is calculated

    you get +1 worst 72 hole score OR double your guy who MC 36 hole score, whichever is higher.

    BigDeemer, flexing his muscle in the PGA major contests. .....new Sheriff in town??

    What happened to Brayden Syndicate?

    Good move by PO69 to get second place money.

    Always a good contest.

    The difference comes in how the MC penalty is assessed throughout the various rounds. I believe ChiTownJoe "amortizes" the penalty by assessing a MC golfer half of his 36 round penalty at the end of R3 and the other half at the end of R4 (unless 1+worst total 72 hole is greater). At the end of R2, we know the "best possible" MC score is double the MC golfer, so I assess that full penalty from the end of R2 onward.

    Example from above, Richsox had two MC golfers at the end of R2: Pieters (Group D) at +14 and Steele(WC2) at +8. ChiTownJoe assessed an additional +7 and +5 (mistake, should be +4). I assess the full +14 and +8. This accounts for the discrepancy of 10 strokes (+44 versus +54).

    Similarly, each MC golfer will have a "best case" of double the R2 score, but as the worst 72 round score becomes known that "penalty" may increase.

    R4 underway. Big Deemer with a huge lead. Big moves needed to catch him.

    Project worst 72 hole final score at +15 (Lahiri finished at +15), so worst 72 hole score + 1 = 300. Best possible group is at -30.

    It was fun even though the contest wasn't very close. Great picks of Kisner, Fowler and Thomas by Big Deemer.

    One small correction: RichSox got 2040, +52 (Koepka should be scored with a 284, not 285).

    Best possible picks went 1953, -35.
    Groups:
    Matsuyama 279
    Fowler 279
    Thomas 276
    Molinari 278
    Oosthuizen 278


    Wildcards:
    DeLaet 280
    and
    Stroud 283
    or
    Smith 283

    Good job deemer! You came through after day 1.


    I know that there isnt a perfect way to fix missing the cut, but I think that it is a huge penalty to miss a cut. Maybe next time, how about we pick like 9 golfers and we take our best 6 or 7? That would keep other guys in it in case one of your last picks really fucked up the first 2 rounds

    Thinking of tweaking with dropping lowest score of any of your 7 players for US/British/PGA.....Masters has much smaller field so think it best to keep that the same.

    You really wouldn't like the one I get in every major and the players....pick 4 golfers from an A, B, C, D list...miss the cut with 1 and you're out....for the PGA there were 1347 entries at $20 each...they pay first 5 40%, 30%, 15%, 10%, 5%....with a 10% hold....every entry emailed to you in a spreedsheet on Wed. to keep it real...love it as having to make the cut with all 4 really makes you think....usually lose between 60-80% by Fridays
    ‚ÄčWhen you're winning stack up, when you're losing back up....
    Gabe if you're not going to post ALL your plays on the website why not post them ALL in ONE thread and let people know where that is?

    Must tweak to some extent. Too severe of a penalty when you miss the cut. Basically the goal of this format is to have the fewest guys miss the cut. To much luck involved to meet that goal. Than again luck plays a role in many contest.

    I like your idea! Drop the lowest score reduces the luck involved.
