U.S. Open Darkhorse Contest and Bitch Session
« on: June 13, 2007, 03:40:53 PM »

Alright, don't have any prizes in mind but perhaps we can come up with something.  Pick a player who is not ranked in the top 100 in the world to win the U.S. Open.  Posts must be submitted and not modified before first tee time Thursday morning.  Ties will be broken by something entirely whimsical and decidedly unfair.  I'll work on that.  If none of our picks win then we'll just throw a kegger with the entry fees.

I pick [edit: Errrrmmm, he's not in the field.  I'll have to work on this.  Might be a slim selction pool.  Stay tuned.  LOL.]

Awesome!  I'll contribute a prize of the book, Tour Tempo - Golf's Last Secret Finally Revealed.

Maybe to eliminate ties, you could have it so that once someone grabs a player, they're off the board.  That would also reduce procrastinating.

I still have plenty of golf balls to give away.  Sad I found even more today when I was cleaning my closet.

Hows 'bout a bakers dozen to the winner?

Cool Seamie.  Thanks for doing the heavy lifting.

I'll take Nathan Green.

Dys, I'll defer to you on the rules.  I barely was able to come up with the contest and I bollixed that up.   Wink

Damn, how did that just happen?

How about if none of our picks win, the winner is determined by the best finish among our sadsack peons.

And for the prize, I can't tell which is more desirable, so how about 1st place gets a choice between the tour tempo book and Seamus' baker's dozen of balls, and second place gets the prize that wasn't picked?

Sounds great.  I'll dig around the place a bit and see if I can find something to toss in the pool.

We still might have ties.  Maybe a scorecard tie-breaker if it comes to it?  Sunday score... Sat... Fri... Thurs.

Good call on the scorecard tie-breaker.  That should cover it.
