    Lets just do this by calendar year? I never know when the actual seasons start/end...and we missed the official 'start' of the 2016-2017 season according to the PGA website...soo...

    Alright, I think everyone here knows the rules, however, for any newcomers I will lay them out below:

    • Pick 1 PGA Tour professional golfer to Sizzle, this means you believe his WGR score will go up between now and the end of the PGA season.
    • Pick 1 PGA Tour professional golfer to Fizzle, this means you believe his WGR score will go down between now and the end of the PGA season.
    Picks are due by next Thursday January 12th @ 12:00 AM! Scores will be recorded when I get around to it on that Thursday. End scores will be recorded somewhere around the end of 2017.

    I will start a spreadsheet and note the current WGR scores of everyone's picks, at the end of the year, I will get their scores again and do the calculations. The calculation is below:

    (SizzleEndWGR - SizzleStartWGR) + (-(FizzleEndWGR - FizzleStartWGR)) = Total Adjusted Score

    So for an example - Both the Fizzle and the Sizzle gain, the gain of the fizzle hurts your score.

    Sizzle Start Score : 10
    Sizzle End Score: 20
    Fizzle Start Score: 5
    Fizzle End Score: 10

    ( 20 - 10) + ( - ( 10 - 5) ) =
    ( 10 ) + (-(5)) =
    ( 10 ) + ( -5 ) = 5


    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. If anyone wants to put some skin in the game, I'm willing to hold as I have done before for this forum.

    Man, starting to regret playing this. For a moment I was rooting for Chris Kirk to fail, and that's not something I'm very proud of.
