PGA Championship
PGA Golf
August 9-12, 2018


illiniman14 won this in 2017. wwe84 (The Masters), srini701 (US Open) and George95 (The Open) won the 3 other majors in our comps this year.

The Rules
1. Everyone will pick 5 golfers.

2. We may have a maximum of 2 golfers from the top 10 of world rankings as of August 6, 2018 in our fivesomes. The current top 10 is:

1. Dustin Johnson
2. Justin Thomas
3. Justin Rose
4. Brooks Koepka
5. Rory McIlroy
6. Francesco Molinari
7. Jon Rahm
8. Jordan Spieth
9. Rickie Fowler
10.Jason Day

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!

The final list of participants can be found at:

  • There seems to be some strange connection between Brooks Koepka and srini701. Koepka won the US Open and srini701 won the FT comp here. Koepka repeated it at the PGA Championships the last weekend, and srini701 repeated his feat too! Koepka's second major of the year was his third in all (after last year's US Open) and he has now gone 3 wins and another top-10 finish in his last 6 starts in majors.....maybe we should all take him more seriously than the current world number 1, Dustin Johnson (half the field here picked him....not s single pick for Koepka!)

  • The other dream story of the championships was the return of Tiger Woods, who fell 2 strokes short of scripting a most amazing fairy-tale finish. The Tiger is roaring though, and the others will be wary of him again. 5 of us had faith in Woods here.

  • The top 2 players in our field from the last major, George95 and PaulE did not show up here, and srini701 squeaked home by a single stroke over Dizart for his second win of the year. paper_aero took home the bronze, one more stroke behind....we were far closer than the real field out there! N-Bomb and ElfTwinkle tied for 4th spot, as did 3 others for the 6th place. Our 5th player's scrores separated all these players. gtho4 and LeoDaVinci returned after missing the last major and they were rusty.

  • The All-Not Taken Team consisted of Brooks Koepka, S Cink, Gary Woodland and Rafael Cabrera Bello, who would have totaled 1074 and won our comp by 11 strokes!

  • That's it for the golf majors for 2018 then....See you all again in 2019 if illiniman14 does not return by then to reclaim his comp!
