    The Masters starts this Thursday so don't wait too long!

    For those who haven't checked it out to see how easy it is, you pick one player from each of the 6 tiers. The total score of all 4 rounds is your score, after you drop your worst player's score - so it's the lowest 5 scores (lower is better in golf ) of your 6 players. Easy!

    2016 example:
    This year's lineup will be out on Monday, I believe.

    Well, Dustin Johnson withdrew right before the start so I'm pretty much done.

    I heard that he fell down the stairs the day before, so I did a quick switch to Jason Day. That was what got me the victory.

    Congratulations to the winners..and the tie-breaking number! I knew I was doomed when I got on-site &saw Johnson had been cut the very first thing; & sure enough, I lost two more by the end of the day. But, you know what..these fantasy games are really fun... especially since my kids & grandkids think I am 'really something' for participating at this late stage of life! So, many thanks to you, Tom, for sponsoring, and many thanks to you TSP'ers for the competition. Also, thanx to my neighbor who saves her morning newspaper for me to pick up on my way to my various volunteeering duties where we have more lively conversations about the games.

    Always nice to hear from you, grandma! I had Johnson too so I felt your pain. We'll get them next time. The Player's Championship is in mid-May.
