From all the moaning and groaning about picking losers, it would be easy to win if I just knew who y'all picked.  🤣

If you want to put a spreadsheet together of all the combinations of entries and share with us that would be much obliged 👍

I’d even change my picks but the site never sends me the link to allow me to make edits.  To help you out my picks are the guys you think will win but end up playing poorly. 

Once the tournament starts, you can click on the leaderboard to see the other teams.  But you can't view them before the tourney starts.

I wanted to change my team and not see other teams.  In my email confirmation there is a link to the user dashboard:

User Dashboard - Selections are editable prior to the start of the event.

I clicked the link it says it will send me a link but never does.   Last time I tried (earlier contest) it send the link after the tournament started so I couldn’t edit the team anymore.

For me, this is a blessing. I have a tendency to go back and mess things up by overthinking...just like I do with my golf swing...

I looked at the control settings and there is no option to allow or disallow changes, so it might be something they used to have and took away.  I would have allowed it up to the start of the tourney if they had it set up.

I did the same thing.  I'm like how can I be 166 and then I looked and 5/6 of my guys haven't started their rounds yet.  Hopefully I move up the board and not down once they start....🤣

I think I am bottom 1 so far. So if the quote "if you ain't first, you last" is true, then I'm actually tied for second

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 7.1 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

I'm not sure I like this contest.  I usually never have a favorite; I just like watching all the players make great shots.  Now, I find myself not only rooting for my players, but also hoping the top players that I know others picked miss a par putt and miss the cut.
