Darn you, Golfingdad! I was going to choose Spieth for my sleeper pick!

 

1. Louis Oosthuizen, -4

2. Matteo Manassero, -5

3. Michael Thompson, Even

 

I call this my "I Always Pick Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, or Justin Rose in These Prediction Contests, Now Watch One of Them Win Immediately After I Give up on Them Once and for All" prediction.

Sorry to use you as an example, but really? REALLY?

 

Tiger has already been chosen as the first pick by a couple people, so if he wins they will win even if they have the score completely wrong and you have it right. You completely wasted your second choice, and in all reality probably the third one as well as I'm sure somebody is likely to pick Rickie with either their first or second choice.

 

First choice - who you think will win

Second choice - kind of a surprise pick... who you think has a chance but nobody is really thinking of

Third choice - complete surprise if they win

 

Remember if you take somebody with your second pick and they are picked with somebody else's first pick (or you use your third pick and somebody picks them with either their first or second pick) than you can't win with that one....

 

I hope that makes sense.

As must be stated at the onset of every major tournament, wasting one's picks on Tiger Woods is a time-honored Predictions Contest tradition. I only get into the mood for major golf once somebody does it.

I'm guilty of this and realized it only after reading the rules AFTER I posted my picks. I facepalmed. Now I'm really pulling for Luke Donald to win as he is my only viable chance at winning.
