Predict the Winner of the 2014 Open Championship with The Sand Trap!

Who do you think will WIN the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool and what SCORE will they shoot?

PLEASE READ, changes made to the rules:

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the text "I want to win a Callaway Big Bertha Driver" .

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 Callaway Big Bertha Driver or X2 Hot 3 wood


The Rules:

- All qualifying entries must be received by July 17th, 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 "I want to win a Callaway Big Bertha Driver" , the player's FULL NAME (first and last) and score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) you are predicting to win the 2014 British 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 Callaway Big Bertha Driver

Second place wins a Callaway X2 Hot 3 wood

Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize.

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

- Adam Scott

- Phil Mickelson

- Jordan Spieth

Actually, I like the 3 wood.  And I have no idea of who is actually eligible to go at this time so I'm just guessing anyway on who's playing.

What's the player list?

    • Sorry in advance for this but as a student and guy who bought the book and read it a few times - is there a thought about adding some coupons again sometime soon? 😬
    • Something clicked in my head when I read this. I forgot about the chest down part (we didn't focus on it much in Erie because I kept dipping too low), but I thought about it now and put everything together and realized what I'm trying to do is a hip hinge like I would do when weightlifting. So I started practicing a hip hinge as my transition move. I played on Sunday with that feel and hit the ball pretty solidly, but had some clubface control issues. I practiced today to refine everything:   I think these swings are probably the best ones so far. I learned today that my clubface issues come from the arms lifting too much in the backswing. If I get them too high, the club tips out and I hit too much across the ball with the face open. Big push-fades. Need to keep feeling the left arm stays lower in the backswing, almost too flat - Ben Hogan pane of glass feel.
    • I wasn’t saying jeans weren’t ok just more of a comfort thing. I don’t really care if somebody plays in jeans. I just couldn’t be comfortable golfing in jeans. I agree with the not caring about what the person wears. From the people I’ve been paired with when I didn’t have 4, the better the clothes the worse the game. I know it’s not a hard rule but I think fairly accurate. 
    • I'm so glad I don't have to worry about my kyphosis...that would be a nightmare....
    • For the jeans, I think a lot depends on the course. There are some people who end up choosing between golfing or not depending on what they can wear based on time. I play a lot of public courses that have, shall we say...a relaxed or perhaps country setting. We routinely have construction guys roll up in their battered rig, roll out and head straight to the tee (the courses know them well enough to let them pay after the round) in dirty jeans, shirts, etc. Wide range of abilities from double bogey hackers to some guys who run a lot of pars. I love these courses because I can wear gym shorts, tee shirts, and just play. I see people ranging from the above all the way to the guys with the tight tucked tour set-up, belt, etc.   My enjoyment of my personal round has nothing to do with which groups I see ahead or behind me or, for that matter, if I am matched up with them. Jeans, cut-offs, wife-beaters, none of them bother me or my round, only the personality of the people I am matched with.   I also sometimes play much nicer courses...I have been able to play the private With Hollow side of Pumpkin Ridge, as one example, and there I do wear the ugly-@# shorts and a nicer polo. I also intentionally play there very seldom as I don't enjoy the round as much in clothes I find ugly.   Which likely means the codes are working. They keep people like me who don't care about what other people are wearing away from courses where people are more interested in the atmosphere. For me the beauty is there is room for both. I have no need to play those courses and those courses have no need for the money of people like me, they seem to be getting along fine.
