    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 before Feb 1st @ 12:00 AM! Scores will be recorded when I get around to it... End scores will be recorded as of January 1 2020.

    The actual calculation has not changed for this year.

    (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. Let me know if you have ideas to make the game better/more fun.

    @Fairwaysplitter3320 could you unpin the 2018 thread and pin this one? Thanks.


    EDIT: for future reference: Scores as of end of 2018, I'll use this same site to get the scores as of the end of 2019 as well

    And, as soon as I picked Rose to fizzle, I see he's in second place after shooting 9 under today!! Oh, well.

    It's a marathon, not a sprint!
