    2014 Masters Contest & Official THP Thread

    The 2014 Masters is upon us and that means one of our fun major contests is here as well. This thread will serve as host for all of the tournament chatter as well as contest talk. It should be lively for the tournament, so hopefully those that enter join in on the fun during the tournament.



    Like most of our major challenges, your job will be to pick players and depending on how they finish, you could be a winner, but this year will be a little different.

    The Prizes
    Callaway Kings Of Distance Prize Pack
    X2 Hot Driver, Fairway Wood and Hybrid (all 3)



    Here are the rules
    1. Only one entry per person
    2. Your entry will be emailed in.
    3. Contest Open to anybody that is a member of the THP Forum
    4. If you win, shipping is free for Albatross Club members only.
    If you are not a member & would like to become one, click here.

    Contest will run until the tournament starts Thursday & we will use this thread for all the tournament action. When the 1st man is off, entries will be closed off.

    Your Entry
    Your entry will consist of your pick(s) for the tournament as well as this info. Your email will be sent to contests@thehackersparadise.com
    Picks
    Forum Name
    Full Name
    Shipping Address

    The Players
    Your job is to pick the winner of the tournament. You can pick anybody in the entire field, but the kicker here is you get only one golfer. There is a catch however, if you decide to pick from this list, you will get three players from the list instead of just one.

    Phil Mickelson
    Henrik Stenson
    Jim Furyk
    Gary Woodland
    Chris Kirk
    Harris English
    Patrick Reed
    Sang-Moon Bae
    Matt Every
    Branden Grace
    Matteo Manassero
    Thomas Bjørn

    Playing the Game
    You pick anybody you think will win the Masters, however if you pick a Callaway staff member from above, you increase your odds by getting three players instead of one (all 3 from the list above). The entries with the most prize money will win. In the event of a tie (and they do happen), we will break the tie, by random draw.

    Good luck and we hope you follow along the tournament with everybody here. Should be a lot of fun.

    What if someone picks a winner that isnt from the Callaway team, but the 3 Callaway picks net more winnings in total.
    The Most Important shot of the day is, the current one. Treat it like so!!!
