    Pick 4 golfers to win the Open Championship. Picks in this thread only, please. Use the discussion 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!

    Nobody picked Lowry (except all of Ireland minus Mark :D ) so we went to the scorecard playoff.

    I can proudly say that Nick kicked my ass worse than any of the rest of you. :D

    Interesting note: I used the CBS Sports odds that "picked the last two majors winners...blah blah blah". I picked 2 of their top 4, and 2 of the ones they said would surprise everybody. Figured what the heck, let's see how this does. Well, there you go.
