Sorry I'm late on this.  Had wanted to do another contest like this but hadn't figured out how to do the groups.  Decided we hadn't had a contest in awhile.

 

Pick one golfer from each group.  Lowest combined scores for the entire tournament wins.

 

Group A:

Dustin Johnson - Rory McIlroy - Jason Day - Jordan Spieth - Rickie Fowler - Jon Rahm - Justin Rose - Sergio Garcia - Adam Scott

 

Group B:

Henrik Stenson - Hideki Matsuyama - Justin Thomas - Brooks Koepka - Louis Oosthuizen - Jason Dufner - Paul Casey - Alex Noren - Charl Schwartzel

 

Group C:

Bubba Watson - Kevin Chappell - Matt Kuchar - Francesco Molinari - Daniel Berger - Billy Horschel - Marc Leishman - Martin Kaymer - Patrick Reed

 

Group D:

Any golfer not listed above

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

So what happens in this pool when players miss the cut? Because we're gonna have a lot of missed cuts.

Last time I did different flights based on how many players you had make the cut.

So wiuhusker will be your winner.  The only one who picked three guys who made the cut.  Two of his guys made the cut on the number - Stricker birdied the 18th to get to stick around for the weekend - and Spieth was one stroke under the cut line.

 

But there is quite a battle left in the First Flight.

Thanks for running this, Mav!  

 

===============================  

 

A LOT of big names missed the cut this year.  It was fun watching the PGA pros struggle to keep their ball on those elevated greens yesterday.  Welcome to my world!   :lol:
