It’s a major championship week as all eyes are on Royal Lytham & St. Annes for the 2012 Open Championship. There are many notable players in the field looking to get their first major win, as well as past major champions looking to add to their trophy case.

And the weather forecast is calling for cold, wind and rain, so it’s sure to be a challenging week for all competitors.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: JULY FANTASY FOUR RESULTS

Hey There Fantasy Four Players!

Bob here with an important announcement regarding the July Fantasy Four — Damian is on vacation and unavailable for the next three weeks, so here’s what we’ll be doing this month for the picks and results posts:

I will be doing the announcement posts for the next three (3) weeks, they will be the limited posts I usually do in Damian’s absence, those will be posted each week on Monday or early Tuesday per usual.

The results posts will be held until the end of the month — Damian will do all four results posts when he returns, and the weekly results for all four weeks, as well as the monthly winner for July, will be posted on Monday July 30th or Tuesday July 31st.

Thanks in advance for your understanding here, as I want to have Damian tally the results in his usual expert fashion. Alan and I will be focusing on keeping the site content going for the next three weeks including the upcoming Open Championship. Any questions or concerns can be directed to me at bob at ngnation.com.

Thanks again for reading NG Nation and playing our Fantasy Four contest!

Bob
