Open Golf plus Prediction Comp

Postby SoulCircus on Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:28 pm

So the World Cup's nearly over, the season a few weeks away, so what better way to pass the time than the Open Golf prediction comp. From Carnoustie this year, which is probably the toughest course on the Open rota, which could make for some hard scoring for both players and predictors. Let's get ino it...

The rules are older than Peter Alliss but for any newcomers:

Pick 5 players from 3 categories, Europe, USA, Rest of World. 3 from one category and one from the other two.

e.g EUR, EUR, EUR, ROW, USA or USA, USA, USA, ROW, EUR. Etc, etc.

Also predict the winning score.

Points scored for amount players are under par. -5 if any player misses the cut. 5 bonus points for getting the winning score correct.

CLOSING TIME FOR ENTRIES THU 19TH 8am.

Good luck everyone. Let battle commence...

Thanks Mr. C

Dustin Johnson
Rickie Fowler
Jordan Spieth

John Rahm

The weather doesn't look too bad, rain on Friday and breezy rather then windy for the rest. I'll plump for the winning score to be -9
