PGA Championship
PGA Golf
August 10-13, 2017


wwe84 won this last year, followed by gtho4 and George95.

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, 2017 in our fivesomes. The current top 10 is:

1. Dustin Johnson
2. Jordan Spieth
3. Hideki Matsuyama
4. Rory McIlroy
5. Sergio Garcia
6. Jon Rahm
7. Jason Day
8. Henrik Stenson
9. Alex Noren
10. Rickie Fowler

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

3. The lowest 4 total scores from each tippers 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
If one tipper's fifth golfer (or, if both/neither do and they are tied, the fourth golfer, and so on) makes the cut and another's does not, the tipper with the golfer that made the cut will win. After that, the lowest score from each tippers 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:
https://www.pga.com/events/pgachampionship/tee-times/

Deadline: First tee time, roughly 5:20 AM August 10 FT time (7:20 AM local)

  • illiniman14 was the only tipper to take 2 golfers who broke 280 during the PGA Championship, and with that takes home the gold. Congrats! He took Justin Thomas and Hideki Matsuyama srini701 had Thomas and finished in second, while toocool4u had Matsuyama and finished third. toocool4u and ElfTwinkle had to go to tiebreaker to determine the bronze, where toocool4u's Justin Rose beat out ElfTwinkle's Thomas Pieters 296-312.

  • Justin Thomas won his first major in comeback fashion. After 3 days, he was 2 shots back of Kevin Kisner. As Kisner fell back, Thomas took advantage, getting a birdie on #9 to finish the front 9 at 1-under. On #10, his birdie putt sat on the edge of the hole, until finally dropping in. He holed out a chip on #13, and from then on, all of his competitors fell around him. By the time he birdied #17, he only had to worry about Kisner 2 strokes back, but a Kisner bogey cleared Thomass lead. A final bogey on #18 only changed the size of the lead.

  • Kisner led the first 3 days, tied with Thorbjrn Olesen after day 1 (Olesen would finished tied for 44th), Matsuyama after day 2 (Matsuyama would finish tied for 5th), and alone at the top after day 3. Unfortunately, the pressure got to him on Sunday, leaving +3 and tied for 7th.

  • The All Not Taken Team was very strong this tournament: Francesco Molinari, Louis Oosthuizen, Graham DeLaet, and Kevin Kisner added up to a 1116, good for a 9-stroke win.

  • The next major will come in April 2018, when the Masters returns.
