    I know weíve said this in other threads, but thanks again Sky for doing this each year! Itís always entertaining, especially at the late stages of a game and you see a perfect score is within reach.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    Thanks again Sky, really appreciate your work and thoroughness in this contest.

    A question for multi year winners and others that play.

    Do you use analytical websites that predict a score or some other data research to make your picks? I ask because I usually just look at the morning betting line and then pick something off the top of my head. Not judging I'm just impressed with the amount of multi game and year winners out there and am curious how you pick your score.

    I do not use any analytic sources, sites, or lines.

    I use the first two numbers that pop into my punkin’ hade.

    Would be interested in how Paul divines his picks.
    Warmly,
    "Mel"

    If you're talking about me in 33rd place, you don't want to know :)
    Clearly I'm just having fun, and occasionally come close.
    No time to do any studying on it.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Right on, Paul. The only way to roll.

    I know it's game day when I see:

    "XU 78
    Other guys 72"
    Warmly,

    I believe over the years the scores have generally become more compact. I think this has to do with the beginning of KenPom and the availability of betting lines.

    Hey, I could spend my time studying the Vegas lines and listening to the pundits...or...I could be relaxing with a Makers.
    Not a tough choice
