    I'm happy with my picks even though I'm not going to finish near the top:

    Xander Schauffele - (T2)
    Jason Day - (T5)
    Rickie Fowler - (T9)
    Matt Kuchar - (T12)
    Bubba Watson - (T12)
    Jordan Spieth - (T21)
    Tommy Fleetwood - (T36)

    Three golfers in the Top 10 and six in the Top 21 is respectable.

    Same here.
    Two tied 5th (Finau and Molinari)
    Fowler 9
    Kuchar and Watson tied 12
    Speith tied 21
    Matsuyama tied 32.
    All together made less than Tiger. A lot less.

    Here is what I have; someone please double check and confirm

    CDu $3,521,732
    mkirsh $3,400,647
    Rogue $3,132,312
    curtis325 $2,947,882
    CameronBornandBred $2,735,649
    TrippingWilliam $2,622,144
    Bob Green $2,187,349
    Jason Evans $1,950,497
    accfanfrom1970 $1,745,174
    cato $1,496,188
    mal $1,449,939
    tbyers11 $1,402,330
    gotoguy $1,235,006
    nmduke2001 $1,208,400
    elvis14 $1,130,354
    Rasputin $1,050,123
    killerleft $1,032,595
    Rich $995,785
    mr. synellinden $991,625
    dudog $836,912


    6 of us had Tiger (CDu, Curtis325, CameronBornandBred, Rogue, Tripping William, and me), and while I had first and second (DJ), the rest of my team was weak and CDu had a ton of depth. (As an aside, has anyone who finished second ever been on TV less than DJ today?) Using 9 points on Rose who missed the cut kept me from back to back Masters. Congrats to CDu!

    I know our contest doesn't work on score, but in case anyone is interested CDu is score champ as well:


    CDu -58
    Bob Green -56
    accfanfrom1970 -56
    Rogue -51
    cato -48
    Jason Evans -47
    tbyers11 -45
    curtis325 -41
    CameronBornandBred -36
    nmduke2001 -36
    elvis14 -36
    mkirsh -35
    TrippingWilliam -34
    Rich -31
    gotoguy -29
    mr. synellinden -28
    killerleft -26
    dudog -26
    mal -20
    Rasputin -12

    What an amazing tournament overall and a fantastic win from Tiger. Even though I haven't been a Tiger fan I was pulling for him today and it was great to see him take another green jacket. He was super locked in the entire back nine.

    I was about to say onto the US Open, but the PGA is up next!

    I havenít calculated exactly, but your #s seem roughly right for 1 and 2. Basically, Day, Rahm, and Watson did just enough to top DJís money.

    I am kicking myself for turning my back on my boy Koepka, who carried me to the US Open win and competitive PGA. I fretted over him or Rory, but went with the hotter hand. Mistake. I got lucky it didnít cost me.

    That said, I concur on how fun a tourney this was in general. Sunday was just crazy with so many big names making charges. Seemed like nearly every hole had a new leader until the last few holes. I am guessing the ratings were fantastic.

    I looked back, and was really surprised more of us didn't pick Woods. He didn't have the same cost effective value as last year, but comparatively, he was still cheap. Guessing that is about to change. (Still would take him, though.)
    Tiger's OWGR ranking is now 6th, and picking him will cost 7 points (he's at 7.7368). I remember taking him last year for 2.

    That's almost as amazing as winning the Masters. I thought he might win another major someday, but I didn't think he'd be relative to possibly becoming the world's number one again!

    Shall we do a PGA Championship contest? Starts on Thursday. Tiger is a little more expensive now.

    As a side note, Iíve played the Black Course about 50-75 times in case anyone is curious about it. By far the hardest course Iíve ever played and that includes Shinnecock and Baltusrol. And probably my favorite, except it really is too hard for anyone above a 7 or 8 handicap.

    Picks due by Wed. midnight ET.

    Good luck all.

    Here are the rules:

    1. You have thirty OWGR "points" to spend on picking a team.
    2. You can pick any player in the field - it's not a draft, so in theory you could have the exact same team as someone else.
    3. You can pick up to 10 players, not more.
    4. Each player's "cost" is their OWGR points total rounded down. So, Dustin Johnson "costs" 9;
    5. Anyone whose OWGR points is less than 2, costs 2. In other words, no player in the field costs less than 2.
    6. Your final score is based on a total of the money won by all the players on your team. If one of your players misses the cut, you get 0 for that player.
    7. As a tiebreaker, you also pick the winning score relative to par (e.g., -12).

    11:59 pm ET Wednesday deadline for submitting picks.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.
