Did you read the first post on the first page?

I am not certain, but I would guess all of your picks are invalid.

In relation to par is the scoring rule, I wrote out "Even" instead of "E" but it's still in relation to par...

Yeah, I don't see anything wrong with his picks at all.  He put in the Callaway line, listed the full names, and listed the scores.  I think he's got it covered.  Of course, his 2nd and 3rd picks were wasted seeing as how both of those guys were chosen with first picks already, but I don't believe his entry is invalid.  Unless I'm missing something?

The guy in post #97, OTOH ... ???

I want outrageous speed with a Callaway XR driver! Tiger Woods -18 Phil Mickelson -18 Ernie Els -18 [COLOR=cccccc]I will not win with those picks but I get so tired of watching people squander thei

Just an observation, but it seems very few folks read the rules at all for this contest. If one of us received a buck for every wasted pick made they could buy the Callaway club outright!!!

That was what I meant.

I also thought that someone would probably have picked Rory at E by now as well.

What's the rule on score if there is an 18 hole playoff on Monday?

Is that included, or do we go by 72-hole total?

Whoever wins the playoff and their 72 hole score.

    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
    • Oops. I should have said 'discarded cigarette lighter' rather than a walnut.
    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
