Congrats.

Bad news was I was disqualified because I didn't say 7 words....and I'm assuming I would have won since I was the first to pick Rory and had him at -17. I'm sick as sick can be over that. Not happy, but accept it.

Good news......I won $250 because I put some $$$ down on Rory pre-tourney.

That's not the full story. You changed your entry too. And got a PM about it. Congrats on your $250.

Not the players...just the scores of the 2nd and 3rd guy by accident by two strokes.Thanks, though.

Bad news for @saevel25 is the driver does not come in OSU colors!   Congrats!

Way to go @Yukari !

I would ask that both of you write a nice review in the Equipment section on these clubs.  We need more reviews for clubs.

Seconded. And post some great pictures of your clubs and your smiling faces here in this thread.

Mike can then add them to the first post and congratulate you on your win.

I third the notion and I'm sure both guys will write up some great reviews.

This should be an added requirement for any members of the site partaking in the contest moving forward as well. Though we probably shouldn't make it a "requirement" for obvious reasons as there can't be any takesy-backsies. I mean everyone reading this should just make a mental note and be aware that a review would be a simple way to say "thank you" by contributing to the site and community that allowed them the opportunity to win something.

Congratulations, guys! :beer:

Congrats - I just needed better Open weather (meaning rain/wind) to get my Rory -8 pick, or for Francesco play 10 shots better on Saturday.

Oh well, I'm sure I will enjoy my Bridgestone golf balls after the PGA!

That was a really tough break for you.

I saw that you had forgotten, and then I noticed that you made an edit where you used the phrase that pays, but you changed your scores of the second and third picks, though you kept Rory at -17.

As I said, a tough break, but they have to run a fair contest.

It really was a remarkable guess on your part, though.

Way to pick 'em, guys.

I never dreamed the scoring would be so low.

Enjoy those great new clubs.

    • John, what is par on the front?  Or what golf course are you at now, I can look this up?
    • In a friendly 18 hole game over the weekend, due to increment weather, the course only opened the front nine. This is typical conditions on Nine Hole Courses, when playing a 18 hole match, I assume. @DaveP043 need your help, I'm confused as usual …   On pages 63 - 64 Rule 6.1a of the new Rules of Handicapping.   Calculating the course handicaps are the following -  DDA (-1) Dan (2) John (5) I'm assuming this applies for 18 holes? Now is my confusion on this matter. Would DDA lose a stroke on the Hdcp Hole #17 which is the 8th hole on the front side? Dan would receive 1 stroke on Hole #3 which is the #1 handicap hole on the front side? John would receive 3 strokes during the first nine holes and 2 strokes during the second time playing on the front side? Hole #3 (#1 hdcp) Hole #2 ( #3 hdcp) and Hole #6 (#5 hdcp) Is my assumption for stroke allotment correct? One note I discovered,18 hole course handicaps were different due to course rating from only the front. The CH for our 18 hole course are, DDA (1) Dan (4) John (7) we each had a difference of two strokes. Handicap Index - DDA (1.3) Dan (6.0) John (8.5) Here is the course rating for the front nine at our course - DDA played the Blue, Dan and I played the Blue/White
    • Putting the 60 on the bench makes the most sense and gives flexibility in mid to upper bag setup.
    • I find this a fascinating topic, actually a small subset of the larger question would sports be better without professional leagues? It actually harkens back to a time before professional sports leagues dominated the landscape, and were overtake with sponsorships, billion dollar arenas, and multi-billion dollar broadcast rights. Are we better off with the sports brands - Nike, Adidas, Acushnet, etc. Sure it has made a few billionaires (owners) and the players have an opportunity to become millionaires or mega-millioinairs (Tiger, Lebron, etc). But is this like the Romans going to the Colosseum, and is it sustainable? Sports was around for quite a while before it became a money making franchise; I certainly don't have the answers. But I feel certain that if it were not for the PGA Tour, and the broadcast TV showing of events that there would be far fewer courses, that technology would lag where it is today, both in equipment and course maintenance. It would be a more exclusive sport, with elitism at the country club core.  But to address the question posed in the poll - I think it depends on how you define "good for golf"
    • The takeaway here is to always buy a house on a golf course that requires a hook to infringe on your property.  A low fence should suffice for screamin' duck hooks. 😄  I have a friend who has a home on Sahalee.  You'd think he's in the safest place... 60 yards behind a green on a par 4.  But nope, he still gets thinned line drive iron shots in his yard.
