#SpyStaffSlam - The Open '18 Sponsored by Wilson Staff


Recommended Posts



Welcome to the official MyGolfSpy Major Grand Slam: The Open Edition sponsored by WilsonStaff




Overview: Each Major this season we will be running a "pick 'em" contest. You'll select 5 golfers based on the tiers we've created and the winner will be based off the combined tournament winnings for the players on your team. Most money gets the goods! In the interested of avoiding tie's we also have a tie breaker selection.  Make sure to pick the winning score in relation to par as a tie breaker.  If contestants are still tied after that we will use a random draw for the winners.


1st Place: Set of Wilson irons built to your spec


2nd Place: Wilson Staff PMP Wedge


3rd Place: 1 Dozen Duo Golf Balls


Bonus Prize:  If you pick someone on staff with Wilson and win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place you will also get to pick out a Wilson golf bag


  • Pick one player ONLY from each of the five tiers below.
  • The fifth player is open to any player not specifically listed in the first 4 tiers. DO NOT PICK A PLAYER LISTED IN THE FIRST 4 TIERS FOR THIS
  • Post your pick with the tier number in this thread
  • So you will have 5 players chosen all together (any entries with multiple players from the same tier will be disqualified)
  • The total earnings in prize money from your 5 players combined will be your total.
  • The entry with the highest cumulative total will win 1st place, the 2nd highest 2nd place, and the third highest will receive third place.
  • Tie Breaker #1 - Winning score in relation to par
  • Tie Breaker #2 - Random draw
  • Please indicate your tie breaker score after listing your five players.
  • ENTRIES MUST BE IN BY 11:59 PM on TUESDAY, July 17th. No changes after that time.
  • Winner will be determined by the Official Prize Money awarded to each player. MGS Staff will announce the winner on Monday or Tuesday following completion of the tournament.
