2012 U.S. Open Prediction Contest!

post #1 of 195
Thread Starter 

Predict the Winner of the U.S. Open with The Sand Trap!

 

After a big win at the Memorial Tournament is Tiger the one to beat in San Francisco?

 

Who do you think will WIN the U.S. Open and what SCORE will they shoot?

 

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread. As a tiebreaker, your answer must also include a 2nd and 3rd choice. You are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd, you are picking 3 players to win and what score(s) they will shoot. Your first pick gets priority.  Go Here to see the players who qualified.

 

The Grand Prize winner will have his choice of a Cobra AMP Driver or a Cobra ZL Encore Driver!

 


 

The Rules:


- You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing.
- You must be a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia and aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry.
- Your answer must include the NAME (include the last name) and score in relation to par (so +2, -4, E, etc. Do not list total strokes) you are predicting to win The U.S. Open, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices for the winner (if nobody correctly predicts the winner).
- One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries.
- The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score.
- If no one picks the correct score, the winner will be selected as the first person to correctly pick the winner with the closest score.
- If no one picks the right winner, the prize will be awarded to the closest 2nd and then 3rd choice predictions using the same criteria as above (score first, then closest to score, in order by date and time posted).
- If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next entry.

I just wanted to highlight these couple of rules because by some of the choices you're making, I don't think you're all reading the rules on how we pick winners.

 

First we look at people's first choices. The first person to pick the winner and the correct score wins.

- If nobody does that, we expand the reach by a stroke, and the first person to pick the winner within 1 of the score wins.

- Then we expand the reach by another stroke, and the first person to pick the winner within 2 of the score wins.

Then we do +/- 3. And +/-4. And so on. Even if we get to +/-15 but someone, somewhere used their first choice on the guy that actually wins, he is the winner.

 

The first choice carries tremendous weight.

 

So if you're choosing Joe Schmoe, for example, it makes no sense to choose him as your second or third choice after someone's already taken him as their first choice. Unless they're disqualified for multiple entries or some other infraction, they'll win, regardless of the score he shoots if he wins, over you.
