PGA Championship
PGA Golf
August 8-11, 2013


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 July 28, 2013 in our fivesomes. The current top 10 is:

-Tiger Woods (USA)
-Phil Mickelson (USA)
-Rory McIlroy (NIR)
-Justin Rose (ENG)
-Adam Scott (AUS)
-Matt Kuchar (USA)
-Brandt Snedeker (USA)
-Graeme McDowell (NIR)
-Luke Donald (ENG)
-Lee Westwood (ENG)

Retrieved from: http://www.officialworldgolfranking.com/rankings/default.sps

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:

Just as a programming note: I will be going to the Cardinals-Cubs game on Sunday, so the results won't be up until Monday at the earliest.

1. George95
2. BxBarracuda
3. illiniman14


*-Dizart put “Justin Day” as a golfer, and since Justin Rose and Jason Day have similar first names but not last names, Jason Day was given.

  • There are two people not “Dufnering” (look it up) after Sunday – Jason Dufner, and George95, who both leave with impressive victories! George picked Dufner, Henrik Stenson (third), Adam Scott (fifth), and had the #1 golfer in the world as his fourth to round out an easy 8-stroke victory. Lagging behind was BxBarracuda in second, who was the only tipper to have all four of his golfers under par, and illiniman14, who also picked Dufner and Woods but did not have the same luck for the other two members of his foursome.

  • As for the golf, there was only one change in the top 5 spots from Saturday to Sunday, and that was at the top – Jim Furyk (whom nobody picked) went into the final day a -9 and a 1-stroke lead, but his playing partner Jason Dufner had taken the lead at -10 by #5. Furyk tied it up with a birdie at #6 but a Dufner birdie at #8 and a Furyk bogey at #9 put it away. The two played exactly even (OK, +1, but even with each other), giving Dufner his first major victory.

  • The only other two golfers really in contention were the Swedish pair of Henrik Stenson and Jonas Blixt, who were partnered together in the second-to-last group. Stenson eagled #4 to go -1 on the day and by #13 found himself at -9 and one stroke off the lead. Bogeys at #14 and #17 left him back in the third spot. Blixt started with 2 bogeys, but 4 birdies later left him at -8 and 4 holes to play. The final 4 holes gave him a birdie and 3 bogeys, giving him fourth place alone.

  • There were surprises from some expected contenders. Tiger Woods, who blew away the field at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational by 7 strokes, never broke par in any of the four rounds and ended tied for 40th at +4. Open Championship champion Phil Mickelson, who had previously won the PGA (thanks BxB), played +2 the first 2 days and +10 over the weekend, leaving him tied for 72nd, and fourth-last among players who made the cut.

  • This heralds the end of the 2013 major season, but we will be back April 10 to begin the 2014 Masters!
