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.

    • IMO, if you hit 11 GIR's you should shoot 73. I agree that you should work on putting and chipping - at least half of total practice time.   Might want to try an app like MyRoundPro that shows strokes gained (and lost) in different parts of the game. More objective than traditional stats.  
    • 48-39-87 Weird day. My short game was killing me and then I got it in high gear. Parred the last 6 holes. 
    • Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots.  Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks).  Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course) Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn.    On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.   
    • I would say it’s about 50/50 in terms of too long or too short. Usually I’m pretty on line - it’s mainly distance control. Downhill putts are especially hard for me to judge.    I am staring at my putter more wondering if maybe it is time for a change. I have had the same box set Maxfli putter for almost 20 years. The grip is all worn down and you can see where I strike it on the face. I’ve never tried another putter so maybe I should try something that gives me better feedback.    
    • Shot 83 today, 16 GIR/nGIR, 31 putts, and 3 penalty strokes. Considering the high GIR/nGIR amount (for me), I should have had a better score, but I had three very costly swings that I estimate cost me 4-5 strokes. 1) Approach shot OB on #2, ended up making triple bogey. 2) Tee shot on #6 into penalty area, but managed bogey with a good approach after penalty drop. 3) Easy sand shot on #14 that I picked perfectly clean instead of hitting sand, and launched about 60 yards over the green into the native junk/weeds. Ended up making double bogey after it took two more shots from knee high grass to get onto the green. Drove the ball well today, and short game COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills are continuing to pay off. Missed some makeable birdie putts, but no 3-putts, so overall putting was fine.
