It took me a bit longer than anticipated to sort all the entries out, hence the slight delay on day 1.
There are 513 entries! pleasingly surprising.

In collating the information I've noticed a few things....
*A few people attempted more than 1 entry, where this happened only the 1st posted one was accepted.
*Most people entered as requested, but one or 2 of you didn't read some of the entry instructions, the main one was Section E "How many of these 13 players with surnames beginning with S will be in the top 20 after R3". Some people just named ONE of the players instead of putting a number down. You lot want just ONE of them to make it.
*anyone who put non-applicable selections down will be left with no selection wherever this applies. There aren't many of you however, but some will only have 10 or 11 scoring sections.

Observations about the entries:
A. 235 lists have Adam Scott to be top Australian, only 1 person chose Mr McPherson.
B Top ROW & SA, quite an even spread, only 3 picks for Tim clark though
C 257 people think Luke Donald will be top Brit, only one each for Paul Lawrie (which might prove inspired) and Sandy Lyle (which won't).
D Fairly well spread picks in the top euro group - once again, sorry I missed Jiminez. For the purposes of this section he doesn't count.
E A majority think either 3 or 4 letter 'S's will be be doing OK after R3, 9 the highest and 3 picked zero.
F Only 4 choices. An amazing 451 out of 513 lists had McIlroy to be top Irishman. 4 had Clarke be the man.
G Top US. 100 Mickelsons, 213 Woods's, a fair spread of some others, about 1/3rd unpicked
H This one's done - scores below. 7 people picked leader Lee Westwood. No-one picked Hanson or Oosthuizen who tied for 2nd (they would have scored 3 points each)
I Selections for R2's best score range from 63 to 69. Hope the weather holds!
J Of the 12 named to make the cut, 1 listmaker thought all 12 would, 1 thought only 2. the rest in-between.
K Mostly a win by 1 or 2 shots is favoured, one person went for 6, one for 7, no-one higher.
L Nobody thinks the final winning score will be Par or over, 1 person went for 26 under par, about 10 under is most popular.

Anyway, the only scorers for the competition after round 1 have a healthy lead:

Everyone else is in joint 8th place.

Thanks for your time and effort. Much better organised than the Masters Par3! (Maybe you should have stated rules as 'My results stands whatever happens'just in case??
For anyone chasing  'Shady Man' I'm looking for a 64 as best round today with 7 of the named golfers making the cut. Long way to go and pride comes before a fall but.....WTF...........Yipppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Thank you shady.
I did put such a clause in the competition entry thread. Pre-empting potential fickleness.

Fickle, fickle, wouldn't catch any of s complaining, not with you having tipped up Jimenez as Top European Excited

Great bit of data entry Study as well, 513 entrants chasing £300

Cheers studyform

Wonder if I was the only person who picked Stenson for first round leader.

My wife walked in the room just as he was about to Tee off on 18 & I muttered the Immortal words "a par 4 should do the job here!" At least I'd laid him off earlier!!

513 entries is pretty good, but 6 years to update

no wonder the comps are not popular!
