What a great first event for the 2011 Fantasy Four Contest! With a small field, it’s a good way to get some points on the board. It also introduced the fact that you need to watch your picks (ie, Ogilvy) but that’s true just with setting your lineup for fantasy football, or the Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Golf. They have deadlines and so do we!
It was a great turnout for Week 1 with 33 entries! Let’s look at some key stats from this first week of picks;
Most Popular Nike Pick :: Francesco Molinari (19)
Highest Nike Finish :: Carl Pettersson (T4)
Most Popular Non-Nike Pick :: Dustin Johnson (14)
Bad Picks :: Ogilvy (5 people still had him starting)
Average Points :: 15.93
That’s pretty much it. For a light field, there was no missed cuts and the picks didn’t very too much. All right, on to the good stuff….
The first weekly winner winner (no prize) of our 2011 season goes to …. a bunch of people, but it’s a good way to start! Unfortunately, Graeme McDowell couldn’t pull off the win for anyone, so it’s a 5-way tie with 23 points (4 Top 25’s and 3 Top 10’s) for:
Chicago Duffer (GMac, AK, DJ and IJP)
Corey Williams (GMac, AK, DJ and IJP)
no3putt (GMac, Francesco, DJ and IJP)
option720 (GMac, Francesco, DJ and IJP)
W.P. McCray (Gmac, AK, Kuch and DJ)
