    ***CHANGES BELOW***

    We are now doing a squad!! Each contestant(you) gets to pick 3 golfers to sizzle, and another 3 golfers to fizzle.

    • Pick 3 PGA Tour professional golfers to Sizzle, this means you believe their WGR 'Average points' will increase between now and the end of the PGA season.
    • Pick 3 PGA Tour professional golfers to Fizzle, this means you believe their WGR 'Average Points' will decrease between now and the end of the PGA season.
    • Please spell out their entire real name in your picks. Try to only have one post where you make your picks, just makes it easier for me. Thanks.
    Picks are due by next Thursday January 18th @ 12:00 AM! Scores will be recorded when I get around to it on that Thursday. End scores will be recorded as of January 1 2019.

    The actual calculation has not changed for this year, we just sum up the totals at the end; The calculation for each pair(1 sizzle and 1 fizzle) is below:

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

    At that point we will sum the TAS for your three sets of picks and that will be your final score for the competition.

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

    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.

    @Fairwaysplitter3320 could you unpin the 2017 thread and pin this one? Thanks.

    Considering this pick will absolutely net 0, you will have a better score this time than last time.

    So...solid improvement.

    That's just Glark being Glark. He's actually correct.

    Also, theoretically... a score of 0 could win.

    Only 5 entries? Since I have a static score sheet for the beginning of 2018, I think we can extend this another week if all who are already in are OK with it.

    I'm going to take some folks that have played before - If you're already in, disregard the tag.

    @anonymous golfaholic
    @TheTrueReview
    @BigJim13

    Odd...several of the names aren't users onhere anymore...or at least don't show up in the list when I do the tag...whatevs...

    Bump for more players
