2018 US Open

Welcome to the 118th US Open! This year the guys on tour will revisit Shinnecock Hills on Long Island. The last time the US Open was there, the greens burned out over the weekend and the USGA got a ton of shit, and havent been back since. Now, apparently, the course is back in pristine condition.

As we know, the true 2018 US Open Champ has already been established. El Pres from Barstool Sports shot a -3* with only 600+ mulligans at Shinnecock a month ago. Easy win for Team Portnoy which I'm basically a part of, or would be if Pres knew me.

Here are the Official World Golf ranks heading into the US Open. As per usual, Dustin Johnson is dominating (he holed out for eagle on 18 this past Sunday in an easy win), Phil is still chasing his career grand slam (Hes come in in 2nd like 6 times in the US Open, never won it), and Rickie Fowler will try to shake the "best player without a Major" title. (Although Matt Kuchar is right there with him).

On to the fantasy side of things. All time Major Winners, updated:

2013 Masters- Abe
2013 US Open- Bill

The final score of all the players on each team will be added up and the lowest cumulative score wins. Each team will have 4 golfers.

+10 will be added to any players score who misses the cut (this has been altered as a larger penalty for this tourney since the projected winner may be above par)

-10 will be deducted from the score of the team who picks the Champion

If there is a WD, that player will be given a score of the worst round from that day. And then a one time penalty of +10 (the same penalty a player who misses the cut would get.)
