The Open Competition! Empty The Open Competition!

Post by sportform Mon 11 Jul 2016, 12:59 pm

It is The Open this week taking place at the Royal Troon Golf Club and the third major of the season. owen11ozzy has so far dominated this year picking up wins in both The Masters and US Open competitions and is looking to continue his winning streak lorus59 wonThe Open competition last year and is looking for back-to-back wins,

The rules remain the same so if you haven't played before all you have to do is select six golfers, before the first tee off on Thursday, then sit back and see how they get on. I will hopefully get a leaderboard up for each round sometime the following morning.

The winner will be the person with the lowest combined score from their three best finishers. That allows upto three of your selections to not make the cut. The competition scores will be the actual scores from the golfers. So if you have Jordan Spieth and he scores 280 for his four rounds, you get 280 towards you score.

The full rules are listed at the bottom of this post.

Here is a list of the winners so far and you can see the previous The Open final leaderboards in the spoilers below:-

To clarify here are the rules:-

1) Select six golfers before 6.35am on Thursday.

2) Your score will be the cumulative scores from the three best performing golfers of your six selections.

3) As in any golf competition the person with the lowest score wins. Par for this competition would be 852.

4) You must have at least three of your selections make the cut in order to win.

5) In the event of a tie for first place, your fourth best placed selection will be the decider. If there is still a tie after that the fifth then sixth selections will be considered respectively.
 
Hope that explains it all and good luck.

hend0,

You are playing with a bit of a handicap there, only five players golfing your ball

Just add Harrington and it will be all good.
