Well I'm in again, I ran second in one of these last year so maybe I'm due for a good result again... then again I may have won a Callaway Staff bag from the US Open so maybe I've had my luck for the year.

Picking the guys from my MGS fantasy team does not seem to work as I get burned in both pools.     I'm not shocked to see Tiger in group 6, but I thought that he may have been in a grouping with other champions of age or with a mix of the LIV players.

Thanks for running the pool.    

Based on the title in the easy office pool it looks like the prizes may be from Titleist as well.

I know that this contest has absolutely no reflection on my intelligence but it is indeed defeating to not break the top 50 in any of the events lol.  Have no doubt that I am ready to be hurt again.

I guess Heath's logic above is the same as a Hole in One....obviously no reflection of golf talent, and as you said, many of us wear it as a badge of honor 🤪   Sorry, not sorry...LOL

I will crush this contest like I did the last one. [not very well - I think I hit 12th place after day two and faded]. But this time for sure. My access to all the advanced metrics, weather vs. start time, players in a group most likely to skull each other [Daly and DeChambeau, Tringale as referee] and magic 8 ball will be invincible. Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner.  Just glad I don't have to put up any money on my picks😄

Thanks for the contest MGS. 

Quick story. Played the Old Course in 2010 and again in 2012. In the later round, our group was well ahead of the trailing party on 17 [road hole]. They weren't in sight as we finished 17 and 18 is alway slow with the obligatory pictures [bridge, clubhouse, group behind green...]. Grabbed a wedge and sprinted over to the wall/road behind 17. The caddies immediately picked up on what I was doing. I duplicated Miguel Ángel Jiménez's shot from 2010. Got it on the green in good shape but missed the putt - boo. Pro tip - these bank shots come off with tremendous back spin - the ball hits the green and stops.
