    IPB Masters Sweep 2021

    “I’ve never been to heaven and thinking back on my life, I probably won’t get the chance to go. I guess winning The Masters is as close as I’m going to get”
    Fuzzy Zoeller, 1979 Masters Champion

    Deadline Wednesday @ 5pm. Only paid up entrants will be included.
    €20 a head.
    Winner takes all if <= 10 entrants. If > 10 1st 70% & 2nd 30%. If >= 20 1st 65%, 2nd 25% and 3rd 10%

    Picks will only be published after deadline.

    How to Enter
    Group 1 (Max 1 Pick)
    Bryson DeChambeau
    Dustin Johnson
    Jordan Spieth
    Justin Thomas
    Jon Rahm
    Rory McIlroy
    Patrick Cantlay
    Xander Schauffele
    Brooks Koepka
    Patrick Reed

    Group 2 (Pick 1. You can pick another if you didn’t pick from group 1.)
    Collin Morikawa
    Lee Westwood
    Tony Finau
    Paul Casey
    Hideki Matsuyama
    Webb Simpson
    Tommy Fleetwood
    Sergio Garcia
    Matthew Fitzpatrick
    Tyrrell Hatton
    Jason Day
    Bubba Watson

    Pick 2 other golfers from the field.

    · You can use lower ranked golfers in the place of higher ranker golfers i.e. If you want to pick only 1 from group 2, you can pick three from the remainder of the field. If you don’t want someone from the group 1 and 2 you can replace with any other golfer outside these groups. But you must pick four golfers.
    . Be sure your golfer is in the field. Double check this yourself.

    Scoring
    · Your score will be the cumulative 72 hole score of each golfer. i.e. say you pick Reed, Casey, Na, Poulter and they score 282, 280, 272, 280 then your score is 1114.
    · The winner will be the person whose 4 golfers have the lowest combined score.

    Missing the cut
    · If one of your players fails to make the cut you will get their 36 hole score x 2. i.e. if you pick Westwood and he fails to make the cut with a 36 hole score of 160 then he will get a score of 320 towards the combined score of your 4 golfers.

    The Padraig Harrington Rule
    · This rule is in place in case your player does a Paddy H. i.e. makes the cut but shoots 87 and 90 in the final two rounds.
    · The contribution to the cumulative score of any golfer who makes the cut cannot be bigger than the 72 hole score assigned to any picked golfer who fails to make the cut.
    · So if your players does a PH he will be assigned the score of the worst performing golfer, who has been selected by somebody in the competition, who failed to make the cut.

    If your player is DQ'd, WD or hit by lightning & does not complete he will also receive equal of the worst picked score.

    The Jim Furyk Rule
    If you pick the same golfers as another entrant - tough sh1t.

                                                            Cut I guess will be around +5 so still all to play for in terms of getting all your players through the cut. Almost impossible to win without all your players active at the weeked.

                                                            Fabulous round from Rose. Not surprising he wasn't selected as his form was awful. Can't see him hanging on.

                                                            Tough day for players all in all. Greens looking like Wimbledon center court on a Sunday. Expecting much the same today.

                                                            Great finish from Shane. COME ON!

                                                                      1- drop one player after the cut. you still get the bad score rounds for day 1 and 2, but if you've picked really well for the other 3 you still have a slim chance to win.

                                                                      2-if only one of your players misses the cut, you get to substitute him for one of the bottom 5 players after the cut for the last 2 rounds. Very unlikely you'll win, but still gives you something to fight for.

                                                                      Really unlikely still to win but leaves you with a tiny chance to fight for.

                                                                      Thoughts?

I like the idea of Shrap of dropping a player after the weekend- It also adds a dimension if you get all players through, as which one do you drop?... Like the comp and excel sheet though...

                                                                              * Harrington Rule: Best cut player total score will be 296. That is the worst total score a weekend player will have even if they have a total meltdown.

                                                                              Some entrants clearly sunk. Others with one cut player still have an outside chance of getting on podium.

                                                                              Much better scoring yesterday. Outstanding performance from Bryson. Showing real signs he could become one of the greats of the game.

                                                                              Sungjae Im. LOLZ. Beaten by Lyle and Woosnam. Still have mixed fallings about format changes. Part of me likes the idea of serious consequences if your players do sh1te, like the golf competition itself. Those cut can appreciate the feelings of the cut golfers, like DJ, who have to spend the weekend looking on, with dick in hand.

                                                                              Today is moving day. Will have a good idea of who the likely contenders are tonight.

                                                                              Enjoy the golf and the Zen of The Masters. Shane still in with a chance. COME ON!

                                                                                  Good luck to the winners , sure tis the bragging rights

                                                                                    Surprised no one else went for JT as pick 1. I think he's gonna kick on today and will end up in a shootout vs Spieth.

                                                                                    Lowry is in with a good shout of a decent finish too, a little more luck in avoiding a couple of those doubles would have left him in contention. ​​​ Bryson is just a little too far back for me and I feel he'll struggle for position if he gets overly aggressive chasing the leaders.
                                                                                    ​​

                                                                                        Will indomitable Bushido blades, flash in the setting sun, to deliver the first male Japanese Major winner, or might we witness harakiri from Hideki? Might a Gaijin break out of the chasing pack?

Had Xander birdied the 16th they would have been level going down the last two. I never felt it was over until Hideki holed his last putt. His shot selection on 15 will be the subject of some debate.

                                                                                                See you in July for The Open sweep, all going well. The format will see a slight change, where a single alternate golfer may be selected up front, to swap in for your worst cut golfer.

Reckon I'd have won picking just about anyone other than Im or even if he had managed to miss the cut in a half normal fashion, and as for poxy Scott I managed to come up with the only player to need the Paddy H rule

Xander was gutsy but just came up short (again), poor lad is Finau 2.0 but coming from that far back is a huge ask. Zalatoris laying down a marker and will be interesting to see if he kicks on.
