Just a heads up to everyone.

Hold off on. Congratulating anyone until I make the official announcement—most likely tomorow sometime. 
 

over 700 entries and over half of them didn’t follow the rules—no surprise there.  
 

Those rules are in place for a reason and it’s been well documented why in past contest.

Just didn’t want any premature champagne popping 😂

I looked yesterday after the third session and I was in first.....fell quickly during the 4th session and after todays matches I ended up finishing in 58th.  While I didn't win and say a few names I new in the top 10 I doubt it will get to me but happy with my picks.

Irons - Taylormade Burner 2.0

Congratulations To

@chisag 1st Place

and

@The Clown of Death 2nd Place

 

They outlasted several entries that didn't follow the rules of making a post in this thread with the two tie breaker questions.  So reading is fundamental! 

The Clown of Death actually tied with @Sherlock with 47 points and both made entries, but The Clown of Death was closer in the Tie Breaker from the Pool of the winning score. He guessed 16 -12 missing the final score of 16.5- 11.5 by just half a point. He was a lot closer than the US Team was for sure 🙂

Thanks to everyone who participated in these contests this year, it made the Majors and the Ryder Cup even more fun to follow.

Kudos to Titleist and Vokey for their great sponsorship all year long by offering some fantastic prizes!

 

 

Well, that is kind of a bummer!! Congrats to the winners! Can we split the 2nd place and I grab one wedge @The Clown of Death?? LOL
