They can't delete their first post. If they post multiple entries, they're DQed. Them's the rules. You can get your picks in early (putting you earlier in the line, since we're taking the first two people with the correct predictions), or you can wait to gather more information and potentially make a better pick, but you risk having two people post before you with the same pick.

Dustin Johnson just withdrew. Smart people will wait until late Wednesday to make their picks. So will I.

I got a kick out of this:

Apparently three players are going to average 44.75 strokes for four rounds. Or maybe the tournament will be shortened to 54 holes and and these guys are going to shoot at least one round of 59 or better at Augusta National.

Note: this doesn't count as his entry. Entries must be made by people submitting posts themselves, and since he's currently serving time in the Penalty Box and can't post... bummer for him when Hunter Mahan goes around in 43-46-45-45 to win his first major, eh?

Those "smart people" are less likely to be one of the FIRST TWO people to choose a player and his score. For example, the third person to take "Tiger at 273" must be hoping one of the two people before him DQs himself - that's all I can figure.

So I can't change my people once I've posted if one of them say...pulls out with an injury? Lame.

I'm sorry you feel it's lame. I think it's fair to everyone else who follows the rules.

    • Last time out I did make my first birdie of the year at 3. Hit a PW up hill to a 125 yard flag to 6 inches. Landed it short of the stick with a low trajectory hoping to skip it back to the flag and have it check up. Couldn’t have missed making a 2 my very much. Rest of the day I did my best to Kevin Na some birdie putts. Was feeling it after that shot. At 4 I smoked a driver and then hit a gap wedge from 92 to within 5 feet. I hit what I thought was a great putt and started walking it in.... lipped out on the high side tho. At 11 I hit my 2nd way right but my 3rd within 5 feet at the par 5. Again tried to walk one in only to lip on the high side: guess I should leave the walking in of birds too the pros!
    • Commenting ,just before  taking the shot (especially negative thoughts) affect your golf swing. Man I feel bad for you. It was awful. Action with some new rules should be taken for this. 
    • Well, at least you have the par-4s down!  I had a round a few weeks ago at my home course that would have been my second-ever no sixes (first was not at my home course)... played the par-5s in -1 (all pars and a birdie), but two sixes on par-4s did me in for the challenge.  Thankfully I have the badge from two years ago or so, but it'll be nice to have a few more rounds that fit this. 
    • Day 206.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  15 minutes after work of 6-iron shots (about a half dozen total balls this time).  Same focus:  setup, backswing pace and length.
    • Day 52: COVID-19 day 6/7 short game drills. After that, did a few minutes of rehearsals for my priority piece. Lesson coming up at the end of this week to see where I have gone wrong with this one.
