US Open Discussion-(Non Spoiler) and tiebreaker 3

With so many entries, it's going to take awhile to compile rankings each day, so first update will not be done until Friday evening after the cut.

In the meantime, post here and talk about your picks, how you think you are doing in the contest, why you think you will win...etc....

By the way, the answer to T3 is 323. That is the yardage of the 6th hole called "The Table" at Musselburgh links - the oldest golf course in the world.

Demolition Man,

Thanks for all your work on these contests. :friends: to the sponsors too.

Based upon early scores this morning, some of us may not even make the cut. A lot of favorites are way over par. It will be very interesting to see if they can come back.

BTW -The T3 question was great, after much research I gave up. Any correct answers?

If you go to PGATOUR.com and have a log in or create one, you can customize the leaderboard and add your picks in the contest. While it will still show the entire field, your picks will be highlighted so you can kinda keep track at where your picks are in the field.

 

So far I have 3 picks at level par. Those being Mickelson, Duffy and DiMarco. The guy that is bringing up the rear in my picks is Justin Leonard at +7.

As mentioned, I'm +72...or so.

I really like Phil's game right now. Bot, you need it all on this course. Long, straight, great short game and super putting.

I'm hoping Weir can stick around too. He has the short game, but look for the big strong guys like Phil, Vijay and tiger to be there at the end if they can put okay.

ditto crew 138 , the course but not the hole

 

no excuse as the name appears clearly in the hole by hole section of the club web site

 

 

No. 6 - The Table (323 yards - Par 4)

 

The formidable “Pandy” (a euphemism for pandemonium bunker). Willie Park Junior used to enjoy playing this hole as he was a long hitter and could easily carry “Pandy” bunker and he normally played his second to the foot of the table plateau green

Sorry guys, all the entries are not tallied. I will try to get an update going for tomorrow evening after the last group of the day is done so we can see who has the best chances for Sunday.

 

Truth be told, rather than total up picks I took off to PGA West to hang out with an LPGA player for two days of golf and practice, brave the 100+ degree weather, and re-live Duval 59 memories at the Palmer course. It's been a great couple of days.....

 

Just got back home, so working on picks now and tomorrow....

I don't think there are many of us here who would pass up the chance to hang out with most of the LPGA players. I hope you had a great time and I'm sure everyone can be patient till you finish tallying it all up. Thanks for the hard work!

Hanging out with LPGA players or tallying some contest. Easy choice, fill us in on your experience when you get a chance.

9 of my golfers made it, (Stricker,Phil, VJ, Pampling, Hoffman, Immelman, Ogilivy, Clarke, Poulter) some tough scores and guys you'd think would of made the cut.

Hope no one picked TW and Sergio for there first picks.

If I wouldn't have made 9 bad selections, and answered all 3 of the tie breakers correctly, I'd be in a much better position. :idhitit:

 

Anywho, DemolitionMan, as always, you've put together one great contest, my hat is off to you. :friends:

8 men standing, but if Stricker doesn't win I'll be doomed as the rest of the batch is huddled where the view is always the same. Obviously I was brilliant on the tiebreaker picks...I need to pick more appropriate moments to emulate a crackhead.

 

thanks for another great contest DMan

 

:friends: :idhitit: :crazy:

 

For Demo's next contest, we should join forces, if you have 8 men standing this time and I had 7....doesn't that add up to 15? Hell, 15 would win this contest easy. :pimp:
