    Everyone will draft two golfers in a snake style format. The ante will be posted here upfront, and will be the same as in the past majors pools, a bottle that would trade roughly the equivalent of a CCB Hunaphu. For anyone not familiar with Huna, it's a one day, brewery only release (BA rated 100) that sells for $25. The bottle you put up is your only requirement for entry, however some local "extras" are always a nice touch.

    The guys who participated in our British Open pool will draft again for this one, we have a "full field" already and will not be adding any new participants at this time. If you want to be added to the next version of this, which will be next spring starting with The Masters, send me a beermail !

    Each participant will select two (2) golfers in a "snake" style type draft, once selected that golfer is no longer available. The winners will be calculated two ways and split the prize pool. If you win on both sides, you only get the better of your two finishes. There will be 4 winners, first and second on each side. We have 17 guys participating, payouts are 5 for the winners, 3 for seconds, and 1 extra box to be named later.

    1. The total amount of prize money your two golfers win combined.

    2. The combined placement score of your two golfers, with the lowest placement scores winning. Example, if your two golfers finish in 8th place and 17th respectively, their combined score is 25. If one or both of your golfers misses the cut, they will receive a score equal to the number of players who made the cut plus 1. So if one of your golfers missed the cut and the cut line was 44 golfers, your score for that golfer would be 45 to combine with whatever place your other golfer finishes in.

    If you're lucky enough to win, you can draft your own bottle provided it's available when your turn to "bottle draft" comes up if you don't want to ship. Other than that, everybody ships.
