2014 U.S. Open Prediction Contest: Win a TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver!

post #1 of 213

Predict the Winner of the 2014 US Open

with The Sand Trap! 

 

 

 

 
Who do you think will WIN the US Open at Pinehurst #2 and what SCORE will they shoot?

 

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread. 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. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more).

 

You will have a chance to win a TaylorMade JetSpeed driver or JetSpeed 3 wood

 

 


 

The Rules:

All qualifying entries must be received by June 12th, 2014 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City).

- Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize.
- 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 FULL NAME (first and last) and score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) you are predicting to win the 2014 US Open, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices.

- The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score. The runner up will be the second person to correctly pick the winner and score or be the first person to pick closest to the winner/score.

- One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries.

- If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next entry.

 

 

 

Details regarding the red, underlined rule:

- It's very simple guys. The winner is the first person (who satisfies the other rules) to choose the correct winner and score with their first choice. If nobody picks the correct score, the winner is the first person to have the closest score for the correct winner. If nobody chose the correct winner with their first choice, we repeat the process for everyone's second choice, and then the third.

- In other words, if someone chooses Joe Smith for their first choice - at any score - and you choose him for your second choice, you've wasted your choice. Additionally, if someone chooses Joe Smith at -2 for their first choice, it makes no sense to choose Joe Smith at -2 for any of your choices if you're posting after that entry (unless the person is DQed or ineligible, of course).

- Think of your picks like draft picks. Your second and third choices should be someone you don't think will be chosen in the first "round."

 

 

The Prizes:

First place wins a TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver 

 

 

 

Second place wins a JetSpeed 3 wood

 

 

 

Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize.

 

 

Again, please read the details about how to go about picking players. If your three picks look like this, you're wasting your 2nd and 3rd picks.

- Adam Scott

- Phil Mickelson

- Jordan Spieth

Good example of picks

 

 

 

Remember guys, as I posted in the OP, if your three picks look like this, you're wasting your 2nd and 3rd picks.

- Adam Scott -1

- Phil Mickelson -1

- Jordan Spieth -1

 

If you pick Phil Mickelson for your second pick that means you think no one is going to choose them for their first pick, obviously someone will. So if Phil wins at -1 and you have Phil as your second pick at -1 it doesn't matter because someone will have picked him for their first pick and they'll win, even if they didn't get the score right. 

 

So with 2nd and 3rd picks go with guys that aren't favorites.
