- Rory McIlroy
- Rickie Fowler
- Jason Day
- Brooks Koepka
- Hideki Matsuyama

Retrieved from: http://www.owgr.com/ranking

3. The lowest 4 total scores from each tipper’s fivesome will be added together to make the final score, and the lowest total score wins.

4. If one of your golfers fails to make the cut, his score from the first two rounds will be doubled to account for his final two rounds.
-A golfer must finish the first two rounds in order for his score to be counted towards the total

Tiebreaker
The lowest score from each tipper’s fifth golfer will serve as the tiebreaker. Should that be the same, it will go to the fourth-highest score and so on.

Sign in with your teams below, and good luck!

  • First time I do the scoring in a golf competition and I win it....sounds fishy, eh ;) ....and that too by a decent 3-shot margin!

  • Brooks Koepka becomes the [i]first man[/i] since Curtis Strange back [i]in 1989[/i], to successfully defend the US Open title! He held off a fast-finishing Tommy Fleetwood and Dustin Johnson for the title. Dustin Johnson led for 3 rounds but couldn't sustain it on the last day. Fleetwood had a most impressive last round, but fell one shot short.

  • Some of the biggest names in the sport faltered this time. The people missing the cut seems to read like a "who's who" of the sport and this probably affected our scoring here. Some of the players missing the cut this year included Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Jason Day, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia!

  • The All-Not Taken Team consisted of Patrick Reed, Tyrrell Hatton, Daniel Berger, and Webb Simpson, who would have totaled an impressive 1143 (second place here).

  • The Next Major on the calendar is [b]The Open Championships[/b], which will be held between [b]July 19-22[/b] at Carnoustie Golf Links, Scotland.
