-----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:
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).

----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.
