For the Majors ... or any PGA Tournament
Also known as Block pools, Grid pools, or Box pools, you're probably familiar with this format from its Super Bowl popularity. Now you can create a Squares pool for any PGA tournaments. Your members can pick their squares online, and view the completed grid and all the winning squares - no need to pass around a sheet of paper!
A 10x10 grid of boxes is setup and each row and column are assigned a number from 0 to 9. Each square of the grid can be claimed by a pool member.
RunYourPool.com gives Pool Commissioners numerous options to make your Squares pool as flexible as possible:
Throw away the poster board! Get rid of the colored markers! Members of your Golf Squares pool will simply login to the website and click the square(s) they want. We also provide the option for Administrator's to enter the names of "guests" into squares, for those that don't want to register and log in. Members of your pool can join and participate from anywhere in the country ... or the world.
Winning boxes are determined in each round by looking at the tournament leader's stats at that time. The top row of numbers (horizontal) represents that player's score to par, while the side (vertical) represents his number of birdies or better. If two or more players are tied for the lead, the player with the highest World Golf Ranking will be used.
In this example, Jordan Spieth led the 2018 Masters after the first round. His score to par was -6 and he had 8 birdies or better (7 birdies + 1 eagle).
In the sample grid below, the first round winner would be Paul Lombardi. His score to par number is 6 and his birdies or better number is 8, corresponding to Spieth's first round performance. However, you would not be required to find the winner, as we do that work for you, as you can see in the Game Results and Winning Squares section below.
Pool members see the squares grid and all other pool members picks online, in real-time. The completed squares grid can also be printed out and distributed so members don't need to be near a computer to see who has won.
|SCORE TO PAR|
|Round||Status||Leader||Score||Birdies or Better||Winner|
|1||Complete||Jordan Spieth||-6||8||Paul Lombardi|
