We’ve got a full tournament under our belts and what a week of awful picks! I still think of Mark Wilson, but he won in 2007 and 2009, so he’s due for his one win in 2011, right?
It’s really only the second event of the year, but we’ve learned that Kuchar is still the man, AK is healthy, Jeff Overton is ready to contend and Carl Pettersson cannot be trusted! I think after this week, we’ll see some more obscure and variation in the choices of golfers.
We had 36 contest entries this week, but only 21 unique golfers. The good news is that we only lost 1 contestant from last week and gained 4 new ones! I was not expecting that, but I couldn’t be happier!
Here’s some key stats;
Most Popular Nike Pick :: Carl “CPetts” Pettersson (23)
Highest Nike Finish :: T13 – Anthony “AK” Kim (10 people chose him)
Most Popular Non-Nike Pick :: Jim Furyk (21)
Bad Picks :: Furyk and Pettersson
Average Points :: 7.38 (ouch!)
This is what happens when we get cuts and a full field… Coming up… more of that good stuff!
We have a 5-way tie for the chicken dinner this week! Thanks to AK, Stricker and Kuchar, these were the leading point-getters with 16;
Interesting mix of winners, as Chris Wang is a former Fantasy Four winner, NGN Bob is the Editor-in-Chief of NG Nation and newcoming W.P. McCray is now in sole possesion of first place.
Congrats to all of you! Keep it up and you’ll be on your way to a monthly, mid-season or second season prize! Here’s some hot links with results
