    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.

    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

    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!
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!
