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.
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.
