I made the once in a lifetime trip so I'm on the other side of the pond from most of you magnificent bastards this week. You know the rules.

Rule 1 - Don't be a dick.
Rule 2 - YS is final referee of all disputes.
Rule 3 - You only get one entry. Pick four golfers. You may only pick one from the group of Spieth, DJ, Fowler, Garcia, Matsuyama, Day. Enter before first teeoff on Th.
Rule 4 - Most official prize money total for your foursome wins.
Rule 5 - Tiebreaker - Closest to Ernie Els' 1st Round score. Can be higher or lower; closest to is all that matters.

Winner wins some swag I will purchase at the merchandise tent on Wednesday - a hat, shirt, or some other free isht.

My four:

Alex Noren
Justin Rose
Justin Thomas
Tommy Fleetwood

Tiebreaker: Els 73

Just got back from the practice round. Nice course. Decent weather so far. They evacuated the grandstands because of lightning in the area for a bit, but storm went around the course.

Our group gave Zach a Let's Go Hawks shout out. He laughed and gave the Tiger fist pump response.

Course is in good shape. Rough doesn't look too bad. If the wind doesn't blow, there will be some birdies out there.

Lone - Amend your entry - You can't have both D. Johnson and Garcia on the same team.

Your swag choice will be an Open logo hat or a large Open polo shirt or a yellow Open logo towel from the merchandise tent. They have that isht figured out in the tent. Massive tent, but quick lines.

I'll post a photo of swag choices on Sunday.

Most of the course workers and locals are pulling for Tommy Fleetwood.

Good luck peeps.
