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

So as I sit at my desk, boringly "participating" in a webinar, I tallied the results to date on the Masters picks.
And by that I mean the void picks, and there are 2 types of voids - void when picked, and voided by a later pick

Voided by a later pick I have 21
Void at the time of the pick 61
Triple crown winners (all 3 picks void at the time of the pick 7 posters for a total of 21 void picks)

It certainly get more difficult the later you pick, as there are so many picks already made; whereas the problem with picking early is trying to guess who won't be picked to first  to void your 2nd and 3rd pick, and who will be picked second to void your 3rd pick.
But to be fair I don't remember a winner of these type contest the last couple of years not coming from first picks.

And just from skimming the thread it looks like most of those bad picks are made as someone's first post or very close to it.  I find it amusing that someone would sign up to a forum and in their first contribution fail to read the OP.

    • 10th round of the year today.  Frost delay but we eventually got out!  Great round, a one over 73!  37/36.  2 bogeys and one birdie on the front. Back nine was solid 7 of 7 fairways, 8 GIRs. Missed the 18th green for my only miss.  Chipped to two inches. Even par on the back. Overall, 11 fairways, 14 Greens in Regulation!  32 putts. (Played Pinehurst #6, White Tees)
    • One person that has publicly declined. There have been others over the years that have declined before there was any public announcement. A few from Trump, a few from previous Presidents. I will disagree on the second point. As to your first. Charles Lindbergh accepted the Congressional Medal of Honor, France's Legion of Honor, and the Order Of The German Eagle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_German_Eagle).
    • I bought a small sheet of polycarbonate at Home Depot, 8"x10", to place behind my ball for feedback on my mat. It was like 5 bucks. It is held in place by tees. You definitely know when you hit a fat shot...
    • I have never really held a negative opinion of Reed. Tremendous talent. Probably a much tougher upbringing than most PGA Tour pros to begin with. Probably lights a fire that makes him as good as he is.
