US Open
PGA Golf
June 13-16, 2019


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 June 10, 2019 in our fivesomes. The current top 10 is:

1 Brooks Koepka (USA)
2 Dustin Johnson (USA)
3 Justin Rose (Eng)
4 Rory McIlroy (NIR)
5 Tiger Woods (USA)
6 Justin Thomas (USA)
7 Francesco Molinari (ITA)
8 Patrick Cantley (USA)
9 Bryson DeChambeau (USA)
10 Xander Schauffele (USA)

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.

Tiger Woods - wwe84; Brooks Koepka - PaulE---who will it be at the Pebbles Beach this year? srini701 starts as our defending champion here. Sign in with your teams below, and good luck!

Deadline: First tee time, 7 am EDT, which would be 5 AM FT time, Thursday 13 June.

  • It turned out to be a superb weekend of golf and yet another person sheds the "also-ran" tag and joins the bandwagon of Grand Slam champions. Gary Woodland, who had never been higher than a T23 in eight previous attempts at the US Open, carded 4 sub-70s to win the title in style by a good 3 strokes over Brooks Koepka, who became the first player to post four rounds in the 60s and not win the title smile
  • Justin Rose faded away after a bright start, while Dustin Johnson, strangely, was never in the picture.
  • gtho4 turned on the style in our comp, and his all-star cast wins him the title by a good 4 strokes, but the drama came behind him! 3 people tied at 1114 and we had to resort to a tie-break ...the 5th golfer scores separated ozzz2002, N-Bomb and szabs....it was heart break for szabs in the end.
  • There was a bigger logjam further down the order, where we had to move from the 5th golfer to the 4th golfer and even the 3rd golfer scores to separate PaulE, paper_aero and Fifiona81 smile
  • The All-Not Taken Team consisted of X Schauffele, Chez Reavie (who's he?), Louis Oosthuizen and Henrik Stenson who would have totaled 1111 and still finished behind gtho4!
  • So 3 slams in 2019 have seen 3 winners here for us. But climbing steadily over the 3 Slams and our most consistent performer this year has been ozzz2002, who went from 5th to 3rd to 2nd....Can he continue his fine form at the British Open? We'll know in July smile
