    Pick 4 golfers to win the PGA. Picks in this thread only, please. Use the unofficial thread for banter.

    Scoring is as follows:

    If you are the only one to correctly pick the winner, you automatically win.
    If there are two or more people who picked the winner, only they will be eligible for the "playoff."
    If nobody picks the winner, everyone who made picks is eligible for the "playoff."

    Playoff details:
    Golfers earn points equivalent to their finish. For example, if Phil finishes T24th, he earns 24 points.
    Golfers that miss the cut earn last place (to make the cut) points +1 point.
    I will add up all of the points earned by all of your picks.

    LOWEST POINT TOTAL WINS THE CHALLENGE.

    In the event of a tie: Whoever picked the highest-placed golfer will win. If the winners pick the exact same people, whoever picked the winning combo first (I can see revision history) wins.

    You may make only one set of picks but you may edit them until the Wednesday night before the tournament starts. I close the thread to picks on Thursday morning.

    Good luck!
    *all taxes, duties or other fees are the sole responsibility of the winner. :geek:
