    Default 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive - Game and Talk

    2018 PGA - Last Major of the Year.


    Time to start thinking about your PGA Picks.... Donuthole won the British Open and he can choose the format if he wishes. We'll give him a day or so as he's probably out in Pahrump on a double homicide case.

    Format:
    Pick 5 players total. Drop your worst score and count the other 4. Your team must include one of each of the following:
    1) 1 player from Top 10 of Money List (ML)
    2) 1 player ranked 11-20 of ML
    3) 1 ranked 21-30 of ML
    4) 1 ranked 31-50 of ML
    5) 1 player ranked 50 plus of ML

    Not everybody in the top 50 is in the field, so cross reference wisely.
    clack, i'm jammed up today (not in Pahrump, but jammed up nonetheless). If you want to post the Top 100 ML and the field, in here you can. I only have time to post the links:

    Excellent work Brother Hole. It's not surprising to see me at the top of the board.

    Cut line is currently at even. Sometimes the US Open gets to be too difficult but a cut line at even in a Major? no thanks. This thing is going to be won at minus 18-20 tough to have course drama in tournaments like this.

    Yep. I said it before, but I’d rather have a major be won at even par or close to it than at -20. -7 to -10 is ideal, IMO.

    -5 through 5. Thanks a respectable start.

    LOL. After the triple, he birdies the next 2. For those keeping track at home, that's 5 birds to start, triple bogey, 2 birds

    RC doesn't stand a chance - Koepka is going to fold like a house of cards - just like he did at the US Open.

    Well.... that was a most satisfying final round. Lot's of action. Koepka is the rill dill. Tiger has convinced men that he's back. Nice to see Adam Scott come back from the dead. Justin Thomas is a millennial snowflake melting down the stretch with a negative attitude. Old Man Cink keeps popping up on the leaderboard when majors come around.

    Not quite the Masters.... but on in the dog day's of summer not too bad.

    Too funny. Tiger will snatch the thrill of victory from Koepka one way or the other. The other is already at play.

    Ended up with 10 birdies that day to tie the PGA record. Too bad he played two other holes +5.

    Thanks to DH for a making the PGA a little nicer to all us participants. He did a good job. RC - are you up for the Masters format? You've got a few months to think about it.
