    Ryder Cup picking contest

    Ok, let's have a contest. We keep talking about it but no one is taking the lead. Time for me to step up!

    Here are the rules...

    You pick 5 players... I don't care if they are all American or all European or what. Pick your five. You can pick any 5 you want.

    You will get 1 point for every hole they win or lose by. So, if a player wins one match 2-and-1 and loses another 4-and-3, he is worth negative 2 points. A tie is worth half a point, not zero. The tiebreaker is the total points team USA will earn. There are 28 total points available. Make sure to include your tiebreaker in your point total!

    Could you all keep the contest talk to this thread, and leave the other one for discussion about the actual golf being played? If not (based on the previous FedEx thread) a lot of us will not read/participate.

    I want someone to make the really savvy pick and take 5 of the bottom tier players who are likely to mostly only play on Sunday... get a win or two from them and you could easily win. I am telling you, the winning score for us is going to be no higher than plus-3.

    I am trying to use a google sheet to keep track of all this. Have a look --

    I have an ecumenical team:

    Francesco Molinari
    Justin Rose
    Tommy Fleetwood
    Justin Thomas
    Dustin Johnson

    Rooting for the US of A, but the long shadow of history makes me pick some Euros for the High Sage Team.

    Kindly,
    Sage Grouse

    Thanks, Jason. A new format will enable me to find new ways to lose!

    . I had to look it up to figure out what his name really is!

    I change my team name to The Five Bruces.
