Quote of the day
"I think we both dragged each other down. We had an idea out there to start playing foursomes, me hit the drives, Sergio hit the second and get some practice in [for the Ryder Cup]." -- Rory McIlroy, after his pairing with Sergio Garcia on day 3 of the Masters
GuruGolf results for the Masters:
Best ball: Lefty Rules (-48)
Worst ball: Drive for Show (+61)
Both teams were managed by the same person. When I saw the team name “Lefty Rules,” I figured I’d find either Mickelson or Bubba, but it appears that “Lefty Rules” was stocked with righties this week.
I have now adjusted the GuruGolf standings program to reflect the "mulligan rule". For the full season competition, each team gets to throw out its worst weekly result - except that major tournament scores cannot be excluded. A few explanatory notes:
For baseball, I now have daily scores tallied for each day for each covered format. Links appear in the left menu. For example, to see the FanDuel scores for the most recent day, here’s the link: Daily FDP. Note that the format now shows the stat line for each player, and indicates whether the player started or not.
- Mulligan scoring will only be applied for scoring over the entire season, with all weeks included for both best ball and worst ball scoring. If you select any other weekly option, mulligans will be ignored in the standings report.
- This means that if you want to see full season standings without the mulligan adjustment, you can simply run the standings with the Mayakoba Golf Classic selected as the start week. While that is technically the same as "entire season", the program will not apply mulligans in this instance.
- To see the mulligan details for any team, position the cursor over that team's season total score. The details will appear in a title bar, just like the foursomes appear when you hover over any team name. If there is a tie for the mulligan week, the most recent week will be cited.
