    Hard to believe, but the British Open ( I refuse to call it THE Open like those limey pricks) looms next week so it's our last golf majors pool of 2019. Rules are the same as usual, but to post for posterity's sake:


    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 Hunahpu. For anyone not familiar with Huna, it's a one day, brewery only release (BA rated 100) that retails around $30. The bottle you put up is your only requirement for entry, however some local "extras" are always a nice touch.

    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 for the Masters and PGA, send me a beermail ! We use the four golf majors in pairs with a reverse draft order for each pair. The Masters and PGA are paired participation, and the US Open and British are paired together.

    Each participant w\ill draft two golfers in a snake style draft, with order reversed in the second major.. . 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 16 guys participating again, payouts are 5 for the winners, 3 for seconds.

    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.

    DRAFT ORDER IS THE REVERSE OF THE US OPEN FROM JUNE. We'll start on Friday at 8 AM.

    If any of our past winners from the first three legs of this haven't received their boxes yet, or a recent follow up communication with a ship date, send me a beermail and I'll provide a nudge. If my nudge doesn't work, I'll send @cfh64 after them.

    Trust me, nobody wants that.

    I’ll think about it, I’ll be working Fri, and in Colorado Sat and Sun I pretty much won’t be able to watch any of it which sucks. It’s always nice to whoop your ass but bets just aren’t the same without watching them live. I’ll let ya know.
