I'm thinking about having a second/concurrent contest in which you can guess what % of the guesses made are "good" picks (meaning picks that follow the format rules, picks where the 2nd or 3rd pick ha

Here's how I made my (your) picks, just because I thought you might enjoy it. :-)

1) Copied all your picks into Excel

2) Took the top 3 picks by count (11 picked Speith, 9 picked McIlroy, 6 picked Oosthuizen)

3) Averaged the scores for the top 3 picks (Speith -11.82, McIlroy -14.44, Oosthuizen -13)

4) Picked a score as close to the average as possible that hadn't already been chosen

Which clearly shows that you really didn't read the initial post completely, if at all.... 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." Of course, if Spieth wins at -16, you're a genius! :-)

    • I'll only ever leave a ball in the trap once. Because ... I'm launching number two into the stratosphere. Some of the longest, most majestic shots I ever hit come out of the greenside bunker on the second effort..

    • One of the more freeing things I ever learned about golf was the bit in LSW about how good or bad (I guess depending on your view) Tour Players are from bunkers.  I can get out of a bunker and onto the green most of the time, and now it isn't something I really worry about practicing;  both because of lack of availability of practice bunkers and also the lack of the need.  The quality of my approach shots has also improved and keeps me out of them enough of the time, too.  And most of my "didn't get down in three from the bunker" instances are three-putting from places I probably shouldn't three-putt from too often, which means the bunker shot wasn't the culprit. 
    • Yeah, it's definitely highly dependent on the situation. Based on my limited experience with how penalty areas are marked near cart paths, it's very rare to see the relief area be between the cart path and the penalty area. That's why I was skeptical but also hedged in my post. In any event, this is really an easy situation in competition. Have them play 2 balls and take some pictures of the area. Let the committee sort it out afterwards. That's easier than arguing about it and have that hanging over your head.
