You guys didn't read the rules, did you?

:-P Does it really surprise anyone anymore?

Perhaps they didn't want to "win a Callaway Big Bertha Driver"

Where does it say you can't select the World's number one and recent winner?

Sure you can pick them, but they will mean nothing as your 2nd and 3rd choices. Your first choice carries all the weight...which means if you choose Adam Scott as a 2nd choice, it will mean nothing because someone has already picked him as their first choice, even if you pick the EXACT score, it will be worth NOTHING.

 

 

That's why your 2nd and 3rd choice should be golfers that you believe no one would pick as their first choice.

Still a valid entry, isn't it? Or am I DQ'd. BTW, see what I won last week with my selection of Kaymer? 

 

Cool, huh?

It is valid as in not DQ'd, but you have no chance of winning with your second pick.  As soon as someone picks your second pick as there first (or your third), your picks become irrelevant.  Even if you picked the score right, and they are 5 off, they still win because a higher pick trumps any lower pick regardless of score.
