Still lots of good first picks out there.

Tiger is locked up from +1 to -14, with 5 duplicate picks (and 4 inexplicable 2nd picks).

Graeme is taken at -13, -7, and -5 (with 1 duplicate pick).

Kuch is taken at -5, -4, and E.

Sneds is taken at -9, -8, and -6.

Rose is taken at -9, -6, and -5.

Rory is taken at -8, -7.

Strick is taken at -4 and E.

I'm surprised that there aren't more wasted Tiger picks--we're doing fairly well this time.  Looking forward to next weekend!

Since I know more people are still going to pick Tiger, I'll give you guys a hint: go higher, not lower. 15-under would be 265 over 72 holes, three shots less than Rory's record from 2011, and a full seven strokes fewer than anyone else in Open history. 2-5 shots over par is more plausible.

Sorry, Shaggie13.  I didn't look at other posters before making my picks.  At least our 2nd pick differs.

[QUOTE name="cabelly" url="/t/67476/2013-us-open-prediction-contest-with-iliac-golf-by-bert-lamar/54#post_852357"] Sorry, Shaggie13.  I didn't look at other posters before making my picks.  At least our 2nd pick differs. [/QUOTE] You're completely missing the point. Not only was somebody on the board with that score with your first pick, you used your second and third picks on players who multiple users have already chosen as their first pick, immediately after a post that summarized the players and scores already taken.

Congratulations, you wasted your entire entry!

Not that I don't think it is a noble cause (helping others pick correctly), but why even bother anymore?  The rules are clearly written at the beginning of the thread.  If someone can't take the time to read them, they don't deserve to win.

True, but for someone like myself, I didn't pick to win. I picked what I actually thought. If I win? Cool beans. But I'm not gonna go through every post to find out who or what score wasn't picked.

I never read ANY posts AFTER the 1st page of this thread.  Just because my picks has the time stamp after the summary, I can see your point and understand your angst.  But I honestly feel like Rose is going to win and just happened to like -5, and if I wanted to increase my chances trust me...I wouldn't have picked the same score as a previous poster(s).
