Alright, a certain young lady member has requested more golf contests here at CTG. So, with the '5th Major' nearly upon us, we will oblige and try something a little different. Just remember, HAVE FUN!
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 more: -3 points
The total points for the tourney last year as far as top 3 finishers
Kim = 28
Poulter = 21
Ooosty = 22
In 12th place, DJ had 18 points
The reason this could be very fun is the challenges that await on the back 9 at Sawgrass. Hole #16 is a Par 5 and we all know about Hole #17. This could bring some big changes in score down the stretch.
We'll use a tiebreaker system as well in case it is needed
2. Dustin Johnson
3. Matt Kuchar
4. Patrick Reed
5. Phil Mickelson
6. Tommy Fleetwood
Tiebreaker #1 = Total score in relation to par (i.e. -12)
Tiebreaker #2 = Lowest round of the tournament (i.e 64)
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!
