    Golfs second (and most democratic!) major of the year is rapidly approaching next week, what a great Fathers Day gift to all us dads !!!! And with that comes part two of the golf major pools.
    .
    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 Masters pool will draft again for this one, we have a "full field" already and will not be adding any new participants at this time.

    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 6 winners, first, second and third on each side. We have 20 guys participating, payouts are 6 for the winner, 3 for second, and 1 for third on both sides of the pool.

    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.



    Cheers and Good Luck all.....

    Since we reversed our draft order from the Masters pool, @VaTechPhilly will lead off followed by @WhoDatMatt. Please post your draft pick and tag the next guy in line as usual.


    For this one we'll go back to declaring a bottle ante up front again to keep it interesting. For my ante I'll put up a winners choice of two crowler fills from Angry Chair, (with the usual locals.)

    God f’n damn it! Once again, I had no idea this started but was wondering when. I figured we’d at least get a pm. Looks like I have some work today and I’ll blame my shitty pick on the shitty Commissioner for ZERO notification.

    It amazes me you’re the Commish of such and amazing BIF John. You should be commissioning some bullshit bush league BIF, perhaps you should hand the reigns over? Not to me though :stuck_out_tongue:

    Ya know what? I’ve tried to be cordial with you for a few a few years and have silently ignored yet internally acknowledged yoir snarky, snide ass remarks. You’re quickly moving up my shit list along with Turfy, John, jshusc but the difference is yiu’re better than all of them. I’m in full alert mode, I jist do this pga shit for fun. NCAA is where we separate the men from the boys and I believe we’re about even. John and Turfy have beem irrelevance for awhile now.

    Run your coon as moith come September, just be sure you send me FRESH IPA’s :wink:

    Well the entertainment value of this BIF never ceases.

    Now I’m officially pissed as I was firmly(and happily) convinced that Fowler was going to be my pick at number 7, and numbnuts Brad scoops him up. I really thought Brad and Joel would take Day and Rory in some order right in front of me, and that I’d be taking Ricky who’s finally going to break through and win his first major, or at least make a lot of noise.

    I can’t take #%!&$ ......so I’ll go with Jason Day.

    @BigBarleywine you are up, and @mj0126 is on deck.

    And as for Brad, go fuck yourself. Put that bottle of single malt down you turd.

    Lol, you know me too well :slight_smile:
    I’m kind of already regretting it, I was under pressure, it was a rash decision. He better not f me over, hopefully he at least stays in it enough to keep me interested.
