Predict the Winner of the 2016 Masters with The Sand Trap and PING!

Who do you think will WIN the Masters in 2016 and what SCORE will they shoot?

PLEASE READ the rules thoroughly. Each year people are disqualified for simple mistakes.

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the text "PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover!"

Your answer must also include a 2nd and 3rd choice. You are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd; you are picking three players to win and the score(s) they will shoot. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more), while the second and third choices exist simply in case we don't have a winner selected by anyone's first selection.

The first-place winner will win a custom PING G Driver!

The second-place winner will win a custom PING G Crossover!

The Rules:

- All qualifying entries must be received no later than April 6, 2016 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City).

- Winners will be notified within 24 hours of the completion of The 2016 Masters and will 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 the visible and bold text "PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover!", the FULL NAME (first and last, for the purposes of proper and unique identification) and the score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) of the player you are predicting to win the 
2016 Masters, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices (same rules apply - full name, score in relation to par).

- 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 valid entry in the order established above.

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 chooses 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: Custom PING G Driver Winner gets to choose stock shaft, flex, loft.

Second: Custom PING G Crossover Winner gets to choose stock shaft, flex, loft.

Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize after being notified..

Again, please read the details about how to go about entering the contest and picking players. Don't pick top ten players for your 2nd and 3rd picks. Example for this contest would look like this

I'm not trying to call anybody out, but READ THE RULES...

If somebody takes Spieth or Day with their first choice, your choice of Spieth and Day aren't ever going to count. Remember, your first choice should be who you think will win, your second choice should be an unlikely winner and the third should be a very unlikely winner.

Also, some of you are not putting the bold PING text in as required. It doesn't have to be red, but it has to be in there and bold.

    • Day 80 - Ankle is feeling better, taking some full backswings. Focusing on a steeper club at A3.
    • Day 351 Some indoor yardstick putting drill tonight. 
    • Thanks. Is it wrong if I make two assumptions? 1. The difference between a "top" and a "thin" is where on the ball the clubhead strikes it, and 2. In either case it's usually the leading edge of the club contacting the ball instead of the "sweet spot"?
    • What a round of golf today. I went to play Hillandale today (par 71, 6026 from whites), which is one of my favorite courses in the Durham area. I shot my lowest round (80) here back in July. I didn’t shoot another 80, but I did shoot 87. It was an interesting round, probably my most lopsided one in terms of nines, with nines of 48-39. On the front nine, I surprisingly hit the ball well, but once I got around 100 yards, I went to pieces. A triple bogey from 70 yards (laying two) on the par-5 second hole. A double from 120 on the sixth. Same on the eighth. Then I four-putted the ninth from 12 feet for triple, missing two three-footers in a row. I got my first GIR on the 11th and two-putted for par. Then I hit my drive so far on the twelfth that I had just a pitch shot in (330 from whites). Hit that on and barely missed my birdie putt. I played holes 13-17 at +3, then birdied 18. One interesting thing was that through twelve holes, I had hit every fairway (ten total). Then I missed three out of the last four (the other two holes were the par-3s). Putting and short game were horrible on the front (21 putts), but I redeemed myself on the back (16 putts). Starting this coming week, the team is meeting at the course to play every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00, and I feel my game is solid.
    • Fair to say I've put far too much practice in due to the lockdown situation in the UK. The mat was brand new 2 months ago 😁😁
