PGA Championship
PGA Golf
May 20-23, 2021


PaulE is the defending champion from 2019, while wwe84 won the last golf major.

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 May 17, 2021, in our fivesomes. The current top 10 is:

1 Dustin Johnson
2 Justin Thomas
3 Jon Rahm
4 Xander Schauffele
5 Bryson DeChambeau
6 Collin Morikawa
7 Rory McIlroy
8 Patrick Reed
9 Tyrrell Hatton
10 Webb Simpson

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: https://www.pgachampionship.com/news-med...ga-championship

Deadline: 11:30pm, Wednesday, May 19 FT time with no grace period.

  • World number 114 Phil Mickelson created history on Sunday by becoming the oldest ever winner of a golf major in the history of the game...there's still hope for me wink This was his 6th major and the first since the British Open in 2013! He held off a fierce challenge over the final holes from Louis Oosthuizen and Brooks Koepka for possibly the most memorable title of his fantastic career.
  • It was a tough week for many players as the scores suggest and we faltered here in our picks too. We only managed to pick 2 of the top 10 players amongst our 21 picks. Llynfi did well to string together a winning combo here, winning by 4 strokes ahead of gtho4. LeoDaVinci finished on the podium for the second consecutive major after a silver medal at the Masters.
  • The "All-Not Taken Team" here would have consisted of the top 4 finishers, Phile Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen, Brooks Koepka and Padraig Harrington, who would have totaled 1136 and won our comp by a whopping 20 strokes grin !
  • See you next month at the US Open between June 17-20
