PGA Major Championship Golf Pools for 2014
For golf fans, the Major Championships each year are the most exciting weeks of the PGA Tour season. You don't have to be a golf nut to enjoy our PGA Golf Majors pools, though. Whether you're planning a small pool for family or friends or a large corporate promotion, we'll make running your pool online a snap!
- Picks are made for any/all of the major tournaments:
- The Masters
- The U.S. Open Championship
- The (British) Open Championship
- The PGA Championship
- The Players Championship (the unofficial "fifth major")
- Before each tournament, we divide the PGA Tour players in the tournament field into six (6) tiers or flights, based on their current World Golf Ranking.
- Each pool member chooses one golfer from each of the six tiers. These six golfers make up their Player Roster for that tournament. Pool administrators have the option to limit members to only picking a golfer once per season.
- The goal is to be the member whose roster performs the best, cumulatively, as a team.
- Any PGA Player who does not make the cut will be given the highest score of Round 3 and Round 4, respectively.
- Performance is tracked for each Major individually, but also in aggregate for all the Major Championships.
Whether your members are PGA Tour junkies or have never watched a round of golf before, they'll be able to participate and enjoy this exciting format.
- Dropping worst picks—Administrators have the option to exclude everyone's worst golfer (or golfers) from the scoring system.
- Finishing position bonuses—Administrators can optionally create custom bonuses (i.e., subtracting strokes) for members picking golfers who in end up in top finishing positions.
- Repicking players—Pools can be set up to allow golfers to be picked again in subsequent tournaments or to limit pool members to picking a golfer only once per season.
Your members will be asked to pick one player from each of six tiers (or flights). The flights are based on the World Golf Ranking of the PGA Players in the field for that tournament. For example, Tier #1 will be comprised mostly of players in the Top 10 in the world, Tier #2 of players between 11-20 in the world, etc.
We make it simple and error-proof for your members to make their picks. They will find our Golf Majors pick sheet is simple and intuitive, and will ensure your pool goes off without a hitch. Picks can be made once the tournament field has been entered in our system and can be changed right up until the first scheduled tee time in each Major.
Once the pick deadline has passed, members are prevented from making or changing their picks. At that time, they'll also be able to see our detailed pick summary reports as well as everyone's specific picks.
Standings are updated for you automatically during the tournament as the PGA Players complete their rounds. We recommend using the Player Roster stroke total to determine your winner, which is the default sort order in the Standings reports. However, if you prefer to use the roster's cumulative money winnings or Fedex points, that data will be there for you and is a sorting option.
In addition to the current Major tournament, we accumulate your standings across all Major Tournaments. This allows you to determine winners for each major as well as a cumulative winner for the entire 2014 PGA Tour Majors season.
What if my members pick PGA Players that miss the cut?
Even the top players in the world sometimes miss the cut at a Major. When your members pick a player that gets cut, that golfer will receive a score equal to the highest (worst) score of the day by a player that made the cut.
