Why We Do This

Why do we do this? It’s not because we love the sound of our own voices. No, it’s because we’re in a picking league where we choose one gentleman golfer to win each week.

The league starts with the Masters and ends with the PGA Championship. It is cumulative, so one bad week doesn’t hurt, and one good week can make all the difference. We can only choose each golfer once, so we can’t just keep picking Tiger, even though Neil wants to do just that.  All major tournaments are listed in BOLD and count twice the amount of points!

In short, it’s all about winning. Here are our picks, results, points earned and our current standing to date.  And as you will see we have TWO selections for each tournament (swingcoachshow.com and @swingcoachshow).

If you can’t follow the standings, just email us at swingcoachshow@yahoo.com or tweet us and we will answer accordingly!
