All, I have been deputised to run a small pool for the Open Championship 2022. No stakes but a chance to give everyone something for which to root. The Rules Each person selects five (5) players of which a maximum​ of one (1) can be in the current top 8 in the world (list below). Each person will be assigned a randomly selected sixth member of their squad, as best as possible rated no higher than the lowest rated player voluntarily chosen by any participant. The score for each person will be the total of the four best of their six scores. Any player who fails to make the cut will be awarded a +8, 80, for their final two rounds. Whichever person has the lowest total wins. The Sources A list of all the people who have qualified to play in The Open can be found online. The current world golf rankings are here: The top eight are S. Scheffler, R. McIlroy, J. Rahm, P. Cantlay, X. Schauffele, C. Smith, J. Thomas and C. Morikawa The Caveats Selections must be in by Wednesday 13th July. Best of luck to everyone, be the ball, get in the hole and so on and so forth.
