2015 Return of the Masters Pool

Well, we are at the midway point of this years Master’s and one man, Young Jordan Spieth (which I believe must be his birth name, as many times as I’ve heard said that way) is threatening to run away with the tournament and more importantly, Not-So-Young Eric Fuller is threatening to do the same in the Return of the Masters Pool. But, if we’ve learned nothing else, The RotMP standings can change quickly, all it takes is for someone to go on a late Saturday night John Daly-style bender (I’m looking at you Dustin Johnson) and ruin it for the rest of his team.

This year we have a number of interesting family battles taking place and the Parsons have taken it to a whole new level as they are 4th and 5th respectively.  On the opposite end of the spectrum is the father-son dual taking place in the Weiskind household where son, Jack, currently 3rd, is handing down the punishment to father, Tom – 33rd, for a change. Jack, feel free to remind Pops of the round 2 standings, often.

Those standings are below and don’t worry if you’re team is not near the top, Saturday is “moving day” and plenty of changes can be expected. As in years past the payoff will be 75% for 1st and 25% for 2nd. Good luck the remainder of the way to everyone and thank you all for playing.  Special thanks to Ronnie Arnold for talking me into reviving this classic Ponzi Scheme, err investment plan.

2012 Masters Pool FINAL STANDINGS

Image
Congrats to Trevor Hayes, aka,The California Kid, who came from nowhere to pull off a stunning victory in this years pool. Trevor was led by Bubba Watson and his first place finish but he was pushed over the top by Bo Van Pelt and Adam Scott with their strong Sunday showings proving that it really is a marathon not a sprint. Sunday was an especially tough day for our 3rd round leader Joshua Gillock and the man who drug him down from the top, Sean O’Hair. Consider this a lesson learned Mr Gillock, much like Augusta, first-timers don’t win these pools. It takes years of experience to navigate the treacherous challenge of choosing the right combination of players.

Thanks to everyone for playing and make sure to get your entry fees in ASAP so we can pay the winners. Oh speaking of winners, how about that team that finished second huh?
