  • 2021 US Open - You Pick "Em - Golf Talk

    2021 is here - La Jolla - last played in 2008 with the epic showdown of Tiger and Rocco - with an 18 hole playoff on Monday. One of the best ever.

    Some of our slower members couldn't figure out the double game for the PGA - so - I invite Brother Falawful of Brother Uthole to provide the format.

    If they don't come through by Tuesday at 5 pm Pacific - I'll fall back to the format we had at the Masters.

    Format proposal:

    Pick 4 golfers from the OWGR. Total combined ranking of your players has to add up to at least 100.

    Drop the worst score for each player. Tally the other three scores for each player. Low total score wins.

    If your chosen player doesn’t make the cut, you add the average of the first two scores for the third score.

    Eg you pick Gary Woodland. He shoots 74-76 and misses the cut. Your score for Gary is 74, 76, 75 for a total of 225. If the course plays significantly tougher over the weekend, this could work out in your favor.

    You also picked Dustin Johnson. He shoots 69, 73, 74, 72. Drop the high score (74) and add the others together = 214

    In all likelihood you are rewarded for guys who make the cut and who put together at least 3 good rounds.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

      I like it. But we are adding the three best scores for each of our 4 golfers for a total score, right? So we'd end up with a score in the 900s?
      Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

        Correct. I merely gave examples of how to add a players score if they miss the cut and if they make the cut.

          Right. Just wanted it to be clear. I approve the format.

            So - the combined world rankings of your four picks - must equal 100. So - I pick my three favorite guys - figure out their combined rankings - then with that number established - cross reference the dude that has the ranking that matches my account balance. Easy Peasy.

              And then hope the the 94th ranked player in the world doesn't crap the bed. Sounds like your strategy is set.

                              It's 100 - not 200. (j/k)

                              Do you think Johnny Vegas will make the cut? Why did he ever fall off the face of the Earth?
