I played in a masters pool with about 20-30 guys this past year and was wanting to do the same for the FDX Cup, with the top 30 and all.  Has anyone have any ideas on how to score, pick, etc.  Never really played in any golf tournament pools.  Any help advice would be greatly appreciated!

Most pools are a random pick where no player can be selected by two or more participants. Entry is usually $10 and it's luck of the draw.

Other formats would be to pick multiple players with the winning score used as a tie-breaker. (pick 1-4 players)

To really make it interesting pick 4 players, use one round per player. (Day 1st round, Spieth 2nd, Walker 3rd, Rory 4th)
Total the four players, lowest score wins. Either payout three or more places or winner take all.

Basically, you can be creative in any format, like payout each round, or combine round 1&2, combine round 2&3, combine round 3&4, final payout all rounds.

Having multiple winners is more fun and may attract more participants. A pool of 40-60 or more is exciting with selections. There could possibly be similar picks which tie-breakers come into play.

All good ideas!  I'll be happy to have 10-15 players being the first time I've done this. Thanks guys!
