PGA Championship Contest

We will change it up a bit from years past and do what we did for The Players/US Open/Open Championship and use a modified scoring system.

We will be using a Modified Stableford Scoring System for this contest.

Here is what you will do:

Pick 6 golfers and arrange them in order of your preference (in case of ties)

At the end of the tournament, we will use the top 4 scores you have of your 6 golfers for the week. This is whether they make the cut(s) or not. I do not know if that will come into play but it will make things interesting along the way.

The total points of your best 4 golfers for the week will be added together for your final score.

Here is the scoring system:

  • Double Eagle: 8 points
  • Eagle: 5 points
  • Birdie: 2 points
  • Par: 0 points
  • Bogey: -1 point
  • Double Bogey or Worse: -3 points

Example Entry

1. Francesco Molinari
2. Tiger Woods
3. Rich Beem
4. Chad Campbell
5. Justin Thomas
6. Tommy Fleetwood

Tiebreaker #1 = Total score in relation to par (i.e. -6) * of the 2018 PGA Champion
Tiebreaker #2 = Lowest round of the tournament (i.e 66) *lowest individual round

Here is the field for the 2018 PGA Championship


This will be a fun test because you will need to mix your team with some solid guys, some guys you know will make the cut and also a guy or two who could help with lotsa birdies and eagles.

I hope this works out in a fun way. We'll give it a try!

Prize: 100.00 via Paypal

*No aliases or multiple entries
*Have fun, talk smack
*Contact me after grading is done
*All picks must be in by 7:00 am est Thursday August 9th, 2018.

Congrats to the winner! I wish the format was easier to follow. That said I really appreciate the site putting on the contest...
I'll work on ways to make it easier. It was definitely more competitive than the old pick 5 golfers, take 4 we did. Perhaps I'll look at doing one that I did elsewhere for a tourney early in 2019 to get a feel.
