    Yes, it's that time again. Time to pick the best of the best golfers and see who here is the best prognosticator of professional golfers.

    This time around, I'm changing things slightly. You'll still pick six golfers, but there are no alternates. You'll see why in the rules below.

    1. Participants are to pick six golfers for their team. Each participant will choose one (1) golfer from Pool A, two (2) from Pool B and three (3) from Pool C.
    2. Scoring is based on stroke play for the individual round. A team's score for the round will be determined by the four lowest rounds posted by its golfers that day


    Golfer 1st round 2nd round
    A 70 69
    B 75 77
    C 72 72
    D 69 78
    E 80 76
    F 71 71

    The bolded scores are the ones considered for the team's score for that round.

    3. If a team loses MORE THAN two (2) players for any reason, it is eliminated from the pool.
    4. Tiebreakers -- if there is a tie for first place, it will be broken following these tiebreakers:

    A -- Team with the winning golfer, eliminate any broken ties. If there are multiple teams with the Open winner or if no one selected him, move to B
    B -- Lowest score by the first-flight golfer (eliminate any broken ties, if any teams are still tied and proceed down the list to second-flight golfer. Continue process through sixth-flight if need be, if still tied move to C
    C -- Pants-off, Dance-off competition

    I'll post the field momentarily. Questions? Post 'em here.

    When Frank Burns left the TV version of M*A*S*H, did they send him straight home, or did he go to the funny farm in Korea?

    (Carry on. I await your breakdown.)

    I believe Frank Burns went stateside for some R&R before being discharged.

    And now, on with the field.

    My golf knowledge is limited, so I'll probably be in the same spot where my fantasy team is in (last).
