-----PLEASE SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR SCORES-----

'Yes Ladies and Gentlemen (and the degenerates who regularly follow Spankys page), its time for our Darn Near Annual UIC PGA Majors Challenge Extravaganza!!

Here is the 2012 Majors schedule:
Apr 5-8: The Masters, Augusta National, Georgia
http://www.masters.com/en_US/index.html

June 14-17: The US Open, Olympic Club, San Francisco CA
http://www.majorschampionships.com/usopen/2012/

July 19-22: The Open Championship, Royal Lytham St. Anne, Lancashire ENG
http://www.theopen.com/en.aspx

Aug 9-12: The PGA Championship, Kiawah Island Resort, South Carolina
http://www.pga.com/pgachampionship/2012/index.cfm

CONTEST ENTRY FINAL DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY APRIL 4TH, 11:59pm PACIFIC TIME
NO ENTRIES, CHANGES, OR EDITS PAST THIS DEADLINE NO EXCEPTIONS


-----HOW TO PLAY (Gooch, start here)

Contestants pick eight (8) different golfers (plus 1 Alt) from the WGA Rankings List (Thru March 25) PDF URL posted HERE:
http://dps.endavadigital.net/owgr/doc/content/archive/2012/owgr12f2012.pdf

SELECT your golfers from the above Rankings List IN THE EXACT ORDER as follows: (However, first read and understand golfer rotation explained below)

Golfer A - Any golfer (from #1 on)
Golfer B - Any golfer
Golfer C - Non Top 25 Golfer (any golfer from #26 on)
Golfer D - Non Top 25 Golfer
Golfer E - Non Top 25 Golfer
Golfer F - Any golfer
Golfer G - Any golfer
Golfer H - Non Top 25 Golfer
Alt Golfer: Non Top 25 Golfer ONLY

----IMPORTANT GOLFER ROTATION - READ THIS - Your golfers will compete on a ROTATING basis as follows:
The Masters: A, B, C, D, E
The US Open: B, C, D, E, F
The British Open: C, D, E, F, G
The PGA Championship: D, E, F, G, H
(Gooch, end here)

As you can see, golfer selection and strategy will be VERY important. Your A golfer will play ONLY ONCE in The Masters. Your D and E (26th and higher) picks will play in ALL four events. Your H golfer will play ONLY in the PGA etc. Deciding where to place your golfers may just prove to be your greatest challenge! (If it seems like this takes a bit of effort, The WINNING TROPHY is WORTH IT).

----AN IMPORTANT FINAL SELECTION NOTE: It is up to you, the contestant, to make every effort to ascertain that your picks are, in fact, going to play in each tournament.

----HOW THE CONTEST IS SCORED
Golfers will receive POINTS according to their FINISH positions for each event.
(Includes all ties except playoff)
1st: 1200 Points
2nd: 750 Points
3rd: 500 Points
4th: 350 Points
5th: 300 Points
6 thru 8th: 200 Points
9th and 10th: 150 Points
11 thru 15th: 100 Points
16 thru 20th: 75 Points
21 thru 25th: 50 Points
26th and up: 25 Points
Missed Cut, Late WD or DQ: 0 Points

All golfers finish position points are combined for the FINAL Tournament Score.

THE CONTESTANT with the HIGHEST FOUR TOURNAMENT (ALL 4 MAJORS) COMBINED POINTS SCORE will be the MAJORS CHAMP and WIN the BEAUTIFUL 2012 MAJORS CHALLENGE TROPHY!!! (see picture)
http://www.network54.com/Forum/524596/thread/1331387128/last-1332388729/XCELLENT+Golf+Prizes%21

----OTHER SCORING RULES, ALTERNATE GOLFER RULES, and OTHER STUFF

Any Alternate golfer entered into the rotation (replacing a non entered golfer or early WD) will be playing in just that ONE tournament. Once that Major is over, the Alt golfer returns to the Alt list and will then be eligible as a future replacement.

Once any golfer is replaced by an alternate, said golfer WILL return into the rotation (as otherwise eligible) for the subsequent tournament(s).

Any golfer who completes one hole or more, but subsequently withdraws at any time, is considered a starter and will be scored as a missed cut golfer (0 points).

Any contestant with less than 5 starters (even with Alt) will receive 0 points per missing player.

ALL ENTRIES ARE TO BE ON THIS THREAD ONLY.

ALL ENTRIES ARE TO BE CORRECTLY ENTERED BEFORE THE POSTED DEADLINE. ANY ENTRY/GOLFERS POSTED INCORRECTLY (AND NOT CORRECTED BY THE DEADLINE) WILL RESULT IN THE DISQUALIFICATION OF THE CONTESTANT, NO EXCEPTIONS.

AGAIN - CONTEST ENTRY FINAL DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY APRIL 4TH, 11:59pm PACIFIC TIME NO ENTRIES, CHANGES OR EDITS PAST THE DEADLINE NO EXCEPTIONS

GOOD LUCK!!

Tiger sends The King to the ER!

March 26 2012, 11:30 AM 

Me thinks Arnie's BP was elevated because he had a sex addict on his course! happy.gif

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Arnold Palmer is being hospitalized overnight after doctors noticed a rise in his blood pressure.

Palmer wasn't on the 18th green at Bay Hill on Sunday when Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the seventh time, ending a 30-month victory drought on the PGA Tour.

Alaistair Johnston, vice chairman of IMG and Palmer's longtime business manager, says the 82-year-old is on new medication and was checking his blood pressure throughout the final round. About 15 minutes before the tournament ended, doctors noticed enough of an increase to take him to the hospital for closer evaluation.

Johnston says Palmer was to be hospitalized overnight as a precaution. He says no one is overly concerned.

JolyB, I was just thinking...

April 1 2012, 2:28 PM 

...how could we play all four Majors and contestants wouldn't have the same players throughout?

And then I thought...how can I do this AND make sure that everyone isn't taking all of the Top 25 or so players...?

And THEN I thought...how could I make it so players second guess themselves by having one golfer in one Major but perhaps not the next?

And THEN I FINALLY THOUGHT....what would drive 'gooch absolutely batsh***?

So I came up with this formula.

:>)))

(And Xcellent's trophies are SO NICE that I wanted it to be a worthwhile endeavor)

Golf Tournament

April 4 2012, 7:45 PM 

Hello to all...this is Spanky's son. What better time to join up in class than now? I love the golf tourney format. To ease your worries, I'm a lot easier to deal with than my dad. I imagine he'll get his tournament picks in after Round 1 of the Masters and then claim he "forgot, but swears it's a coincidence that his A player is leading." Anyways, I would be more than happy to pitch in a prize for the winner, maybe a game-used Henry Hawk football helmet, or a gently-worn track sweatsuit (matching tops and bottoms). As you can tell, I'm a football coach and live in the Austin area. As long as you don't mind wearing black and yellow, then I don't mind sneaking some merchandise out for a good cause. Best of luck to all. -Blake

Itinerary of an UIC'er....

April 5 2012, 1:02 AM 

11:30 CST

Under two and a half hours until the deadline passes. I nervously review my Major Challenge team looking for any errors. I will check it every half hour until the deadline expires.

12:00 Midnite CST

Scanning the World Wide Web for any late breaking news or injuries, like ruptured Achilles heels (ya never know with Tiger).

12:30 CST

I'll put a pot of coffee on to combat the nicotine fits even though I quit smoking 4 years ago. Sent text to Ryan Palmer with a last minute word of encouragement and advised him we're all pulling (and betting) on him back here in Amarillo. No pressure Ryan but you're the lead dog on the Spanky Express for the UIC Majors Challenge!

1:00 AM CST

Jacked on caffeine, I'll spend the next 2 hours doing the Jimenez exorcise warm up program (less the cigar..see above).

3:00 AM CST

I'll unwind by watching Mr. Haucks performance I recorded recently. 'Cause nothing gets my competitive juices flowing like the Hallmark Channel! happy.gif

Nice switch Boone!

Good morning Dell & Thanks for the greeting....Although we've never met, I feel as if I know you ( thru Spanky & the endless amount of times we've watched "Phone Booth" over the years ). That and watching you & the Spank Man battle it out on a chess board... both very entertaining. Yeah man, I've gotta get a life! Good luck with the golf thing & Thanks again for welcoming me into the group....

Welcome Lou!

I was thinking the same Jerry. Spanky must really want those Xcellent prizes. I guess it's too late for my dog to enter a team although I'm sure she would beat Spanky's motley crew happy.gif

Class act...

April 7 2012, 11:57 AM 


Did anyone ( everyone )catch Mr Woods reaction to his tee shot on #16 yesterday? Hit it left, drop club over shoulder, turn around & kick club towards gallery....kind of gives a new meaning to the term "foot wedge", doesn't it? Can anyone out there imagine that sort of reaction from Mr Palmer, Mr Nicklaus, Mr Player, Mr Hogan, Mr Snead, Mr Jones, etc.? These are the fellows that made the game what it is. How can we teach our sons / grandsons to respect the game when they are exposed to such behavior over & over every time Mr Woods gets pissed?
I'm not trying to banter Tiger, as one of my relatives has been accused of doing, I'm just saying as a true fan of the game, "We're tired of watching this icon disrespecting the game". Class act....I think not.

I agree 100%, Lou...

April 7 2012, 12:43 PM 

...Gooch made the same points on the other golf thread. It truly was a pathetic display.

And I'm sure Spanky will talk about chess or put up ads for a lawn mower sale or post a song by The Bangles or....

">)))

Good morning Mr Hauck,

I was a bit skeptical about posting my opinion concerning the immature antics of one Tiger Woods, so I appreciate your response. When you consider the on going work Arnold Palmer, along with many others, do concerning the First Tee program, I can't help but think that what Mr Woods shows on camera has to be detrimental to that process. These gentlemen, and ladies, spend countless hours teaching these youngsters things like honor, sportsmanship, and having pride in what they do. It's not just about hitting a golf ball..
I'm sure Tiger has done wonderful things with his charities, but I also believe someone should remind him that the kids who dig him will also try to copy what he does on the golf course. Probably enough said on that...
So, did anyone have Freddy in their line up? I'm sure that I, along with countless other "over the hill" fans will be glued to the Masters coverage today. In all fairness, I hope they don't mic him...Freddy has been known to let a few "F" bombs fly during the competition....
By the way Mr Hauck, I misspelled my A players name...I meant to type in Freddy Couples, but hit the B i l l H a a s keys by mistake. Can you please fix that for me?

SCORES THRU THE MASTERS----

April 9 2012, 2:18 AM 

CONGRATS to BUBBA WATSON for winning his first Masters. His shot on the 10th in the playoff was UNBELIEVABLE!! TRULY historic. And CONGRATS to SMALL MAC for having BUBBA in the A hole (Boy did THAT come out wrong!). Seriously, SMac had Bubba and Phil to start our competition with a nifty score of 1725. Good pickin', pal. He has the lead as we move on to The Olympic Club (a course that I have played many times, believe it or not).

SHOES and HOOPER both had Tough Luck Louie O - The Albatross Man, in their stables (along with that other Lefty). Louie hit absolutely perfect putts on both playoff holes, but it wasn't meant to be (hard to believe after a double eagle - but he played GREAT). DE NIRO also has Oosthuizen and is in with a very solid G note.

CSCOT, JOHNH, and GGRIFF also get off and running to a solid start.

On a sour note, BILL W is an unfortunate DQ as he posted one golfer over the limit in his stable.

All in all, a STRONG start to our competition and a SUPER Masters. We'll see you in San Francisco in June for the US OPEN!!! Good luck!!
