148th OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION

Recommended Posts

I've decided to "host" another Fantasy Competition on the Open Golf Championship, which takes place at Royal Portrush Golf Club, County Antrim, Northern Ireland (18th to 21st July). You will be asked to Select 3 Golfers, from each of 4 Groups (A,B,C,D), a total of 12 Golfers. Your 12 Golfers MUST be made up of the following: 6 EURO Gofers, 4 U.S.A. Golfers and 2 R.O.W. Golfers. Remember you can ONLY pick a maximum of 3 Golfers from each of the 4 Groups, in the ratio of 6-4-2. (NO MORE, NO LESS). I will now Post up the 4 Groups (A,B,C,D) with current Betting Odds. I will then post up details of the Format and Rules.

1.) Select 3 Golfers, from each of the 4 groups, A, B, C, D. The 4 Groups you will find split between 2 Posts, further up the Thread.

Against each Golfer, is their current Bookmaker's "fixed odds" price and their World Region.  Your 12 Golfers MUST be made up of the following: 6 EURO Golfers, 4 U.S.A. Golfers and 2 R.O.W. Golfers. Remember you can ONLY pick a maximum of 3 Golfers from each of the 4 Groups, in the ratio of 6-4-2. (NO MORE, NO LESS). 

2.) Out of your 12 selected Golfers, nominate the Golfer you feel, most likely to win the tournament, your "NAP", in other words.  

If your nominated Golfer (NAP) wins, you will gain extra BONUS POINTS, which will be MINUSED off, your Golfers finishing position.  

The BONUS POINTS will be determined by your Golfers, "Fixed Odds" price, as follows:

8/1 to 14/1 (inc) = 2 pts.  

16/1 to 25/1 (inc) = 3 pts  

28/1 to 50/1 (inc) = 4 pts  

60/1 to 70/1 (inc) = 5 pts  

80/1 and over = 6 pts.  

These points are MINUSED off because the tournament is geared to the lowest score, winning. 

Other BONUS POINTS on offer, as follows:  

Lowest round of the day = 4 pts  

World Region winner, over the tournament, as follows:  

Top European golfer = 4pts, Top U.S. golfer = 3 pts, Top Rest of World golfer = 2 pts.  

Every "Eagle" holed = 1 pt.  

In all these categories, should your Golfer "dead-heat", Bonus Points will be awarded in full.

Again, all these Bonus Points will be MINUSED off, your Golfers finishing position. 

Please Copy/Paste your Selections into the Boxes, provided below:

 GROUP A                          ODDS  

1.)  

2.)  

3.)  

GROUP B                          ODDS  

1.) 

2.) 

3.) 

GROUP C                           ODDS 

1.)

2.)

3.)

GROUP D                            ODDS

1.)

2.)

3.)

Your Selections MUST be posted on this Thread by, 7 pm, on Weds, 17th July. Thank you.

Tom.      :hi: 🏌️‍♂️ ⛳

I plan to produce a "Scorecard" for each Entrant's Selections. Hopefully if I've explained the Scoring System well enough, you should be able to keep your own scores. It would be nice to get a check on my "figures", as well. 

I like to think of the Format as my own "customised" Stapleford Scoring System. The beauty about this Competition is, once you've registered your Entry, there's nothing more to do. This is why I've introduced some Round by Round Bonus Points, to add a bit more interest, on a daily basis.

Listed below, is SUXER's (Rich), scorecard for all 12 of his selected players:

                                              YOUR 12 SELECTED PLAYERS

GROUP                        PLAYER                B/P(R.1) B/P(R.2) B/P(R.3) B/P(R.4)  B/P (NAP)    F/P      F/F

NAP: image.png.f6e20deb448b6711111b12c7815548b8.pngRory MCILROY    ODDS: 8/1  (2) Bonus Points.

         DATE:                          SIGNED: 

Don't forget to sign your "Scorecard", Rich.

Should you win, you wont be able to collect your "virtual" Prize, without doing so!! :oldgrin: 

BLUE x 6 (Euro Golfer), RED x 4 (US.A.Golfer), GREEN x 2 (Rest of World Golfer).

B/P = Bonus Ponts,R.1 = Round 1, R.2 = Round 2, R.3 = Round 3, R.4 = Round 4. 

B/P(Top 5) = Bonus Points for Top 5 finish. B/P (NAP) =  Bonus Points for your NAP.

F/P = Actual Finishing Position. F/F = Fantasy Figure.

If your nominated Golfer (NAP) wins, you will gain extra BONUS POINTS, which will be MINUSED off, your Golfers finishing position.

Other BONUS POINTS on offer, as follows:  

Lowest round of the day = 4 pts  

World Region winner, over the tournament, as follows:  

Top European golfer = 4 pts, Top U.S.A golfer = 3 pts, Top Rest of World golfer = 2 pts.  

Every "Eagle" holed = 1 pt.  

In all these categories, should your Golfer "dead-heat", BONUS POINTS will be awarded in full.

Again, all these BONUS POINTS will be MINUSED off, your Golfers finishing position. The Competition Entrant with the LOWEST average Fantasy Figure, at the end of the Tournament, shall be deemed the Winner.

In a while, I will post up MATTNEAL's "Scorecard" for his 12 Selected players.

Tom.     :hi:🏌️‍♂️ ⛳

Don't forget to sign your "Scorecard", Matt.

Should you win, you wont be able to collect your "virtual" Prize, without doing so!! :oldgrin:  

BLUE x 6 (Euro Golfer), RED x 4 (US.A.Golfer), GREEN x 2 (Rest of World Golfer).

B/P = Bonus Ponts,R.1 = Round 1, R.2 = Round 2, R.3 = Round 3, R.4 = Round 4. 

I'd like to thank K/WEATHER (Callum), MATTNEAL and SUXER (Rich), for entering their Selections in a prompt and clear fashion. Myself and my colleagues had a lot of fun with this Competition when I "hosted" it at my former job, working for Sunderland Credit Bookmakers, in Croydon, Surrey In those days we were competing for £200+ in total Prize Money, split between 1st,2nd and 3rd.

Any other Members wishing to enter, could you please post up your Selections by tomorrow Evening (17th July).

Thank you.

Regards,

Tom.     :hi: 🏌️‍♂️  ⛳

Thanks Matt, was just about to send you a "Sticky Note" re. your NAP.

If Super  image.png.afc8f91eee9ffed472f85328f0170e3e.pngFrancesco (Sorry, I am half-Italian!!) wins again, it will earn you 3 BONUS POINTS, which will be MINUSED off his finishing position, along with any other Bonus Points he earns, to give  a Fantasy Figure (F/F).

Obviously the idea of the Competition, is to get as many of your 12 Selected Golfers, through the "Cut". Having the great majority of your Golfers qualify for the Final 2 Rounds (Sat/Sun), will help keep the really "big numbers" off your "Scorecard". 

To give some additional interest, I'm thinking of awarding Bonus Points to Golfers for winning their 2 Ball pairing, in the 3rd and 4th Rounds. Perhaps a further 1 Point to be MINUSED off their finishing positions. I'll have a think about that.

**NB**: One other point to make, all Category bonus points awarded, are in respect of the whole field and not just the 41 Player field, in the Fantasy Competition. Sorry but it makes it far easier for me to check, everyone's entry.

(Sorry, my eyesight's a bit dodgy).  :help:

Tom.     :hi:🏌️‍♂️ ⛳

"To give some additional interest, I'm thinking of awarding Bonus Points to Golfers for winning their 2 Ball pairing, in the 3rd and 4th Rounds. Perhaps a further 1 Point to be MINUSED off their finishing positions. I'll have a think about that".

As I stated this Morning, have decided to award additional BONUS POINTS, for the Final 2 Rounds of the Tournament:

If your Selected Golfer "Wins" his 3rd Round 2 Ball Pairing - 1 Point.

"     "         "             "       "Ties"    "    "       "       "   "        "       - 0.5 Point.

If your Selected Golfer "Wins" his 4th Round 2 Ball Pairing - 1 Point.

"     "         "             "       "Ties"    "    "       "       "   "        "       - 0.5 Point.

You won't need to make any further predictions, hopefully you're still have quite a few of your 12 Selected Golfers playing at the Weekend.

Again, all these BONUS POINTS will be MINUSED off, your Golfers finishing position.

Of course, your Selected Golfers could be paired with each other for the Final 2 Rounds, or not as the case may be!!

Thays the Final bit of tinkering I'm going to do with the Format, or I'll be known as Claudio Ranieri!! :oldgrin:

I think there's enough in the Format now, to keep the interest going over the 4 Days of the Tournament.

I will be posting my Selections up tomorrow, after I've treated myself to a Racing Post and read what their Golf Pundits, have to say about the Tournament.

Any other Members wishing to enter, could you please post up your Selections by tomorrow Evening (17th July).

Thank you.

Tomorrow Morning, I will post up the "Scorecard" for all 40 Golfers in the "Fantasy" Competition.

**NB** - 🇩🇪Martin KAYMER is just a RESERVE and will only play, if there is a last minute withdrawal.

Below, is a list of every Golfer that has qualified for the 2019 Open Championship:

https://www.theopen.com/qualification#players

Just to get us in the mood, see YouTube clip below of  BBC's iconic Golf Theme Music:

 

As with the Cricket, beat that SKY, if you can!! :nonono:

Finally, a link to the The 2019 Open Championship Leaderboard, official Website:

https://www.theopen.com/Leaderboard

It's what I'll be using to check for "Eagles" holed, by the "Fantasy" Golfers.

I'd like to wish all Entrants the best of "virtual" luck, or indeed if you're having an "actual" bet."

I hope you all enjoy the next 4 days, "feast" of Golf.

Regards,

Tom.   :hi: 🏌️‍♂️ ⛳

Rory Mcllroy has already missed the cut, it all started going downhill for him when he started going out with that tennis player, he could have been up there with Woods and Nicklaus in terms of majors IMO, but he let his ***** rule his head unfortunately.

Typical of Rory when the spotlight is on him he very rarely delivers or is in contention but a long way to go, got very lucky on the 5th could have easily dropped at least a shot but found his ball in the jungle and had a line of sight free drop from a scoreboard in a relatively better spot and got away with a par...Shane Lowry started off well . Enjoyed that BBC Open music Tom reminded me of when they cared about golf :oldlaugh:
