Well the end of the TBH golf season is near.

Get ready to pick your team. Here is the list of players. The "rules" will be posted tomorrow. They are roughly the same as before. Placing a call to KMart49 to remind him to get the computer warmed up.

I had forgotten about the new format. Somebody, besides me, post a link that explains it.

Thanks in advance to whoever posts it.

The format is on this link.
https://www.pgatour.com/news/2019/08...-playoffs.html
JT starts at 10 under while the #26 thru #30 guys start at even par. Kinda dumb but exciting at he same time. Shows how much pressure a guy can handle and how good you gotta be to hold off or catch up

So Thomas needs to just basically shoot par and he should win it. I donít get it he played one good tournament all season and he gets a 10 shot lead over 30th ? Doesnít make sense to me . So basically just the last couple of tournaments is all you really need to do good in to get in the top 10 ?

With only 2 strokes, he'll have to shoot under par to win bc someone will catch him easily.
But I do agree, this format is dumb. It screws the guys who actually won a tournament throughout the year IMO. Now, they just have to make it to the playoffs, either win or place high and the points are so high that those guys move up the rankings very fast. Seems the PGA is putting more emphasis on the playoffs then the majors or any other tournament

TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP Week is here.

Get your teams ready.
The tournament runs August 22-25.


RULES:

* Pick 6 players for your team. After the final round we will total your 4 best scores for the 4 rounds for your teamís score.

* Losers send Ol'Abe to the winner

* Team entry dead line **** Wednesday August 22, at 12 midnight.

* if you want to change a pick on your team.
**** It must be (1 player named and added) for (1 player named and removed) by Wednesday midnight****
note: If you have a player on your team who does not start the tournament then that player has really put the screws in you because he cannot be replaced.

* Playoff - Rules will be the same as the The U.S. Open
Playoff rules to be announced and it will be some version of the RDM method. They are being tweaked by the IT Department and will be posted. The final rule will be a blind draw from the official hat so there will be only one winner of the OlíAbe.

Go ahead and start picking your teams. Remember there is an advantage to picking early in the event of duplicate teams.

There is a premium on picking your team early.
The IT Department is studying the sorry*** format the PGA came up with for giving a head start to some in this tournament. I guess we will be OK picking the way we normally do. If you are sitting at Shuck 'me look see if you see him at the Bar!

Good luck.

Don't forget to get a team in. The Committee tried to get the PGA to change the format but was unsuccessful.

To be clear, are we all starting with the players at their respective starting score, OR are we playing by what they ACTUALLY shoot to par over the four days/rounds? (not that it matters for me... I already have a Paypal window queued up)

It is my understanding the Easy Pick computer is set to give the official PGA result based on JT starting at 10 under and so on down the line.

The Committee believes this is a sorry way to run a golf tournament

Based on the number of times Doghouse has won I may just pick up some of his culls

So, we're picking who wins the FedEx Cup / "championship" rather than the tournament...

Who the he** knows

This is the first tournament where The Committee is going to assess penalties prior to the start of the competition...that will be Ö. +2 shots for OUCH


Actually The Committee was getting ready to go into Executive Session when you posted. Stay tuned for an announcement.

The TBH Tour Championship will be based on the actual score to par of the low 4 individual members of your team.

Therefore, Doghouse does not need to change his team of winners

The Committee has added an Arbitration Department and welcome Roy D Mercer to the most overworked and underpaid organization in history.

Offthemap PM inbound.

If we start with JT at -10 and so on an on. Those will be the only guys people will pick.
Then "IF" those guys play well the committee will be S.O.L with ties.
Pick 1 from players 1-5
Pick 1 from players 6-10
Pick 4 players from All Others.

Just a thought from the peanut gallery��

We are using their actual total score.
The course should be perfect. I'm hoping some of the players' games will not be.

Was Whittaker the announcer who was canned by Clifford Roberts after calling The Masters Gallery a "mob"?
