We have a fun new contest here on NG Nation based on our new feature, the NG Nation Fantasy Four by Damian Daniels. You have a chance to win a dozen Nike ONE Vapor Speed golf balls, there will be one winner per month from May through September. And our grand prize winner will have their choice of a Nike SQ MachSpeed or VR driver! So start playing this week, have fun and win some great Nike equipment!
Here’s how it works:
AT A GLANCE:
1. Choose four players from the field each week, one must be a Nike athlete.
2. Enter your Final Four in a comment below the current week’s NG Nation Fantasy Four post. Post your picks by MIDNIGHT PST THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT STARTS.
3. The person with the most points for each month wins a dozen Nike ONE Vapor Speed golf balls.
4. The person with the most points at the end of the contest (at the end of the FedEx Cup) wins their choice of a stock Nike SQ MachSpeed or VR driver.
1. CHOOSE YOUR FANTASY FOUR: Pick four golfers each week who you think will be the high finishers for the week. ONE OF YOUR PICKS MUST BE A NIKE ATHLETE.
2. ENTRIES: Submit your Final Four in a comment below the NG Nation Fantasy Four post for that week. To be eligible for that week’s points, all entries/comments must be posted BY MIDNIGHT PST THE NIGHT BEFORE THE FIRST ROUND OF EACH TOURNAMENT (e.g. midnight Wednesday for most tourneys, midnight Thursday for the Deutsche Bank, etc.). One entry per person per week, multiple entries will be disqualified.
3. POINTS: Points are allotted as follows:
Win = 10 points
Top 10’s = 5 points each
Top 25’s = 2 points each
MC’s = 0 points each
NOTE: YOU GET POINTS FOR EACH POINT CATEGORY YOUR PLAYER IS IN. So if one of your picks wins the tournament, you get 17 points for that player (10 pts for the win, 5 pts for the top 10 and 2 pts for the top 25 = 17 pts). For any players that are in the top 10, you get 7 points for each player (5 pts for the top 10 and 2 pts for the top = 7 pts). For any top 25’s, you get 2 points for each player. And for any of your players that misses the cut, you get 0 points. For example, here are Damian’s picks from last week:
Phil Mickelson – 2 = 7 pts
Jim Furyk – T7 = 7 pts
Anthony Kim – T7 = 7pts
Tiger Woods – MC = 0 pts
TOTAL = 21 pts
4. FEDEX CUP DOUBLE POINTS: For the four FedEx Cup events — The Barclays, The Deutsche Bank Championship, the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship — points will be doubled as follows:
Win = 20 points
Top 10’s = 10 points each
Top 25’s = 4 points each
MC’s = 0 points each
So a winner gets 34 pts, top 10 gets 14 pts, top 25 gets 4 pts.
5. MONTHLY PRIZES: After the last tournament of each month, the player with the most points for THAT MONTH will win a dozen Nike Vapor golf balls. Points will reset each month for the monthly prize, but all points will be counted for the grand prize. NOTE: In the interest of spreading the wealth around, once you win a dozen balls you will not be eligible to win the monthly contest again, but keep playing because you will still be eligible for the grand prize.
6. GRAND PRIZE: After the Tour Championship, the person with the most points for the entire contest period (all months from May through September) will win their choice of a stock Nike SQ MachSpeed or VR driver (stock = specs available at retail).
