Predict the Winner of the 2017 PGA Championship
with The Sand Trap and Snell Golf!

 
WHO do you think will WIN the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow and what SCORE will they shoot?

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

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the bold that says why YOU choose to play the Snell ball that you prefer to play. For example, "I expect a lot out of my golf ball, so I play the Snell My Tour Ball for the best performance I can get."

Note as always that 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 Prizes

First Place

One first-place winner will win a prize pack from Snell Golf that includes:

MY TOUR BALL is our 3-piece, tour caliber golf ball engineered to provide outstanding tee to green performance, with a mission to enhance scoring for golfers of all skill levels.

The Core has been developed with a very low compression, soft feel, with high velocity to help with ball speed regardless of swing speed and creates low driver spin rates for longer distances.

The Mantle layer works on longer shots to keep control of the spin, and works with the thin soft cast urethane cover on shorter irons and chip shots to create higher spin rates for better control into the green.

The Cover layer is made of a thermoset cast urethane,tour proven cover. This technology allows very thin covers for better short game spin control, and is very soft and durable.

Second Place

The second-place winner will win one dozen MTB golf balls.

The Rules

- All qualifying entries must be received no later than Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City).
- Winners will be notified within 48 hours of the completion of The 2017 PGA Championship and will have 48 hours after notifications are sent to claim their prize.
- You must have a shipping address within the 50 United States of America or Canada.
- You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing.
- You must be aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry.
- Your answer must include 1) the visible and bold text as described above,
 2) the FULL NAME (first and last, for the purposes of proper and unique identification) and 3) the score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) of the player you are predicting to win the 2017 PGA Championship, 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.
- Two (2) entries per person and per household. The second entry is only allowed the week of the PGA Championship (Monday, August 7 through Wednesday, August 9). 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 green, underlined rule:

  • It's very simple. 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 second choice.
  • 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."

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 play the Get Sum by Snell Golf because it helps me "get sum" of my buddy's money!

1) Old Tom Morris -3
2) Francis Ouimet +2
3) Gene Sarazen -5

Also note… you get two entries into this contest, but you have to wait until the Monday of the PGA Championship (and enter before the end of the day Wednesday, August 9th) to submit your second entries.

I used to post an example of why the bad entries were bad and  track how many entries were voided at the time they were made; it was funny and sad all at once.
I like that Iacas has included the 2nd set of picks, which will be interesting the week of the event because the field will be finalized. I always thought it was a dilemma to pick early and then others can pick my 2nd or 3rd pick as their first and effectively void my picks, at least now I can wait until the end for the last selection and get some random PGA club pro for the win.

I'm a big fan of these contests, because I'm still playing the driver I won when Jordan took the US Open title at Chambers Bay.

You can also exploit "holes" in the existing predictions.

If you think Old Tom Morris will win the PGA Championship and he's been picked at -7, -8, -9, -10, -11, -13, -14, -15, and -16… you could take him at -12 and you'd be the first one with the correct score if he won with a score of -12.

Hey, hey - quiet down with the secret strategies, geez.
And my PGA club pro comment was meaning they might be the among the only remaining valid choices for 3rd picks.

    • These guys play a game of which Jack is not familiar.
    • Really to quote Jack, saying the course doesn't suit your game well Hello your game needs to suit all different course setups...
    • I’m just curious if you know his swing speed compared to yours? What ball is he using? And of course the golden question for me is, have you switched drivers just to see the results? I mean, if he hits your driver 10-20yds further than you using his……
    • Day 58: Hit 10 balls, lots of rehearsing in between swings, working on some stuff from my last lesson.
    • A friend and I played golf today. He's a bit shorter and more slender than I am but I am a bit more agile and a bit stronger than he is. When we both drove our balls down the fairway he was fairly consistently longer than me by 10 to 20 yards. The 18th hole was a par 4 and I gave it everything I had and hit a good ball center face right down the pipe and dang if he didn't fly one by me. Talking about it with him we noted that he is using a 47 inch shaft and mine is about 1.5 inches shorter. Both are "R" flex. Mine is a EvenFlo RipTide 5.5 "R" flex graphite. I didn't get the make on his. So, @Adam C(or anyone else, of course) if you have a few moments and can take pity on a poor old geezer who simply wants to beat the tar another poor old geezer off the tee ( in a friendly manner and not spend a fortune doing it), is there another longer shaft or shafts that you could maybe recommend for me sight unseen? Hopefully one that I can get without selling the wife's car (although if it's needed...) 😁 Arccos says I hit the fairway about 85% of the time and my misses are evenly distributed left and right. I'm using a PXG 0211 10.5 degree driver in standard setting with CP2 midsize grip.
