U.S. Amateur picks: Win a prize!

The U.S. Amateur starts Aug. 23, so let’s give away some more prizes. It’s time for another Wildman’s Challenge!

Here’s the deal:

Give me four players who you think will advance the farthest at the U.S. Amateur. For each round your players advance, the more points you earn. A Round 1 victory is worth one point, two points for Round 2, four points for Round 3, eight points for a victory in the quarterfinals, 16 points for a semifinals win and 32 points if your player wins the U.S. Amateur.

Picks need to be submitted to me before stroke play begins on Monday. This way, even though you submit four names, there is a chance all four of your players may not advance to match play.

The medalists winning score will be the tiebreaker. Send me that score. I don’t need the name of the medalist, just what you think their two-day score will be.

The tournament will be played at the par-72, 7,742 yard Chambers Bay which will be the longest course in USGA history.

E-mail me your picks, or post your selections in the comments area below. There is also a link on our discussion boards.

The winner of the Wildman’s Challenge will receive a Golfweek cap, a box of Off Set Golf Tees, one pack of Softspikes Club Grip, a Spotless Swing three-in-one towel, and a C-Square golf training aid.

Happy picking and good luck.
