Notes


This year's pool entry form has been posted.  See the link below.

I will attempt to post here the names of any newly added golfers should that happen after the entry forms have been distributed. Check back here or go to the official Masters Tournament web site at Masters.Com.

Invitee Info Updates.


**  Stephen Gallacher (Scotland) has been added to the Masters based upon his World Golf ranking as of last week. His number will be #97 if you wish to choose him.

** !!!  Tiger Woods will NOT be playing due to back surgery he had done over the weekend.

**  Monday 4/7/14 9:00am:  Matt Jones will be playing in his first Masters after winning a playoff in Sunday's finale of the Shell Houston Open. He will be #98 should you wish to choose him.

According to the official Masters website there will be NO more additions to the roster of golfers.

Note: This year there will be additional prizes awarded, based upon the number of pool entries.  Up to 175 entries will still pay only 3 places; every additional 25 entries will add an additional prize, up to 7 for 250+ entries.  (In 2013 there were 235 entries.)




Entries in the Pool

Popularity of picks from A,B & C Groups




These are ALL of the entries that are in - unless I find some stragglers in a pocket somewhere. With 220 players, we will have 5 prizes this year.

Please use the above link to check YOUR entries to make sure that I have entered them correctly.  Data entry errors can occur, as well as mis-reading of the numbers you wrote down.  If you have a wrong player name listed for your picks, I may have just read (or typed in) the wrong number, so send me an email and I'll check your sheet and make any necessary correction.  The name written on the sheet is the final arbiter of your picks, so if I entered the wrong number, don't worry.

All entries in the pool will be posted above.  If you cannot find your name listed, be creative and try and think like I have to when I am trying to read the writing on some of these slips.  I hope you are better golf prognosticators than writers!

If you really don't think you are listed, email me with the name you think you tried to write down and I'll search for it.

****************************
PS - If you note that your roster of golfers is different than what you submitted, check your own copy carefully.  Many people make mistakes in their selections and submit more than one player from Groups A, B or C.  In those cases I choose a player from the "Field" to replace the error.  Accuracy counts!

Congratulations to the winners.


Explanation of the Rules.


Your best 10 players' scores determine your score.  Obviously, the better your players' scores, the better your chances of winning will be.  If a player fails to make the cut (after the 2nd round), he will be assigned a score of 99.  This will cause your cumulative score to climb if you have a "cut" player as one of your best 10 players.

Tiebreakers

In the event that multiple entries have a tie score at the end, the prizes will be awarded by counting how many of the top 10 tournament finishers each entry has picked.  If that still does not eliminate the tie, then we will continue to compare each entry, counting the number of top finishers.

Example:  If two sheets have 5 golfers who finished in the top 10*, then whichever sheet has the 11th* place golfer will be the 'winner' of that prize.  If nobody has the 11th* place finisher (or they both do!), then I will check for the 12th* place golfer, and so on.   In the event of a tie, the winner of the tiebreaker takes the prize for which the tie occurred, while the loser will win the next lower prize (unless the tie was for the last place already).

* - With the potential for many golfers to finish 'tied' for a position, for the purposes of this pool, golfers will be ranked within a 'finish' in the order of their scores for the 4th round, then 3rd round and so on.
