The latest forum competition, this time it’s for THE OPEN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP:  PLEASE ENTER ON THIS THREAD

  This is how it works: (in much the same way as my other competitions).
There are 12 sections. You have to pick 1 player or number (depending on which section) for each one. The scores for each selection are listed below.
Just put the letters A to L with your choice for each - preferably going downwards, followed by a tie-break answer.

If you don’t want to study or look anything up, just guess!!!

There is a prize, thanks to Betfair, of £100 in Sportsbook bets – which will be divided between the 1st 3 on the final leaderboard - £50, £30 and £20.

In the event of a tie, a tiebreak will come into effect so there will be an absolute winner (or placer).

The Sections: and some details/clues/history

Section A. How many will Angel Cabrera score in Round 1 (His 2 previous 1st round scores were; 71 (Royal Lytham 2012) & 69 (Muirfield 2013)
3 points for exact, 1 point if 1 out
Par at Royal Liverpool is 72

Section B. Day 1 Leader: Name the player who will lead the Open at the end of the 1st round.
6 points for the leader, 4 points for whoever's in 2nd, 2 points for being in 3rd. (Points will be divided for ties)
You may need to look at the full list of players (outright winner betting page will do) to pick your selection.

Section C. How many of the players whose surname begins with a C or D will make the cut?: Only 70 players (+ties) make the cut.
A number between 0 and 22 for this section.
These are the C’s & D’s: A. Cabrera, R Cabrera-Bello, M. Calcavecchia, P. Casey, R. Castro, A. Chesters, KJ Choi, S. Cink, D. Clarke, G. Coetzee, E. Compton, B. Curtis, J. Daly, J. Day, B. De Jonge, G. Delaet, L. Donald, J. Donaldson, V. Dubuisson,  J. Dufner, P. Dunne, D. Duval.
4 points for being right, 2 points if you’re 1 away, 1 point if you're two out.

Section D. What will the cut mark be
After 2 rounds anyone in the top 70 places (and ties) will make the cut. What is the highest (worst) score that will keep a player in for the last 2 days?
Last 3 opens it was 150, 143 and 143. Last time at Royal Liverpool it was 143.
(The weather could play a part in this)
3 points if correct, 1 point if out by 1

Section E. Best 3rd round score. Par is 72.
Lowest ever 3rd round score is 63 (I. Aoki - 1980 (Muirfield), P. Broadhurst  - 1990 (St Andrews)).
Choose (imo) from 63 to 75 - but the probability is 65 - 67 (possibly depending on the weather)
2 points for being right.

Section F. How many of these 20 will be in the Top 20 (and ties) at the end of Round 3  (They’re pretty much the top 20 in the betting):
Rose, McIlroy, Scott, Stenson, Kaymer, Mickelson, Woods, Garcia, McDowell, D. Johnson, Kuchar, Fowler, Day, Z. Johnson,  B.Watson, Spieth, Poulter, Snedeker, Donald, Bjorn.
So, any number between 0 and 20 for your selection, please.
4 points for exact, 2 for being out by 1, 1 point if 2 out.

Section G. Top Australian Player.
3 points for top, 1 point for 2nd, (among the Aussies)
Choose from: J. Day, R. Gibson, M. Jones, M. Leishman, B. MacPherson, B. Rumford, A. Scott, J. Senden.
 
Section H. Top British or Irish Player
4 points for top, 2 points for 2nd, 1 point for 3rd
Choose from: M. Baldwin, P. Casey, A. Chesters, D. Clarke, L. Donald, J. Donaldson, P. Dunne, R. Enoch, N. Faldo, R. Fisher, O. Fisher, T. Fleetwood, S. Gallacher, C. Hanson, P. Harrington, T. Hatton, M. Hoey, D. Howell, S. Jamieson, P. Lawrie, S. Lowry, S. Lyle, G. McDowell, R. McIlroy, P. McKechnie, J. McCLeary, B. Neil, I. Poulter, C. Rodgers, J. Rose, J. Singleton, M. Southgate, M. Warren, L. Westwood, C.Wood.

Section I. Top European Player
4 points for top, 2 points for 2nd, 1 point for 3rd
Choose from: T. Bjorn, J. Blixt, G. Bourdy, K. Broberg, R. Cabrera-Bello, V. Dubuisson, G. Fernandez-Castagno,  O. Floren, S. Garcia, M.Ilonen, F. Jacobson, M A Jiminez. R. Karlsson, M. Kaymer, P. Larrazabal, J. Luiten, M. Manassero, E. Molinari, F. Molinari, T. Olesen, V. Riu, H. Stenson, B. Wiesberger.

Section J.Top American
5 points for top, 3 point for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd, 1 point for 4th
Choose from: K. Bradley, M. Calcavecchia, R. Castro, S. Cink, E. Compton, B. Curtis, J. Daly, J. Dufner, D. Duval, H. English, M. Every, R. Fowler, J. Furyk, B. Haas, C. Hadley, T. Hamilton, B. Harman, R. Henley, C. Hoffman, JB Holmes, B. Horschel, B. Hurley III, D. Johnson, Z. Johnson, C. Kirk, B. Koepka, M. Kuchar, J. Leonard, H. Mahan, B. Martin, G. McNeill, P. Mickelson, R. Moore, K. Na, R. Palmer, DA Points, P. Reed, W. Simpson, B. Snedeker, J. Spieth, K. Stadler, S. Stallings, B. Steele, S. Stefani, K. Streelman, C. Stroud, B. Todd, C. Tringale, P. Uihlein, J. Walker, N. Watney, B. Watson, T. Watson, B. Weekley, M. Weibe, G. Woodland, T. Woods.

Section K. What will be the outright winning margin? The last 5 Opens have been won by; 3 shots, 1 shot,  3 shots, 7 shots, and after a playoff. Biggest ever margin, 13 shots (Young Tom Morris, 1862)
Choose from: P/O, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9+.
3 points for being exactly right.

Section L. What will be the final winning score? Par is 288, Last 2 winning scores at Royal Liverpool were; 270 (by Tiger Woods 2006), 278 (R De Vicenzo 1967). In the last 30 years the lowest Open winning score was 267, and the highest 290 (all venues).
Choose a number (again, imo) between 268 and 290.
5 points for spot on, 3 points for 1 out, 2 points if 2 out, 1 point if 3 out.


TIEBREAK : What will be the difference in score (how many shots) between the winner of the open and the player who finishes 60th (Or next highest position after ties) place ?
The last 3 opens were: 16 shots, 15 shots and 21 shots




Other stuff
If I’ve made any mistakes please tell me and I’ll try to rectify. In all cases common sense will prevail.

E&OE - If there's a player missing from any of the sections as I've listed them (I don't think I've missed anyone), he will be ignored for scoring purposes.
Any ties in any sections, points shared; (eg, if the score is 2 points for 3rd, 1 point for 4th, and there's a tie for 3rd, both will score 1.5)
Please put initials with any ambiguous selections (eg. There are 2 Watsons, 2 Johnsons, 2 Molinaris) any doubt about a selection for a section will score ZERO for that section regardless of the intention.
The organiser's (that's me) decision is final. I'll try to update scores and standings at the end of each day's play.
Entries accepted until 12.00 Midnight, Wednesday 16th July.

Good Luck everybody and enjoy the golf.

That's an awful mistake for me to have made!!!
Where did I get that from??!?!?!

I could have sworn he won a couple of weeks ago.
It's not like he even looks like Graham McDowell, nor is he Irish.

I'm gone at the game.
I'll have to ask if that little snippet can be removed.
Cheers Donny.
