GOLF POOL RULES
Pick 10 golfers and one alternate golfer.
Designate one of your golfers to win the tournament.
                   
Alternates                
                   
  Alternates will only come into play if one of your golfers does not tee it up Thursday for any reason.  
  The Alternate will replace the absent golfer as a pick and as a winning pick if necessary.  
  The pool only allows for one alternate. So, there may be situations where a pool participant has fewer than 10 golfers.  
  If your golfer tees up on Thursday and then withdrawals or is disqualified or otherwise does not finish play, your alternate will not replace him.

  Ties   Golfers that tie any given place: See Examples.

  Total Point Calc   Your point total will equal the sum of your chosen golfers’ points. Highest Point Total Wins  
                   
  Example #1                
    There is a three-way tie for 2nd by Golfers X, Y, Z.(These golfers may or may not have been chosen by pool participants)  
    In this case the three golfers would split the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place points (14 + 13 + 12 = 39 points).  
    Golfers X, Y, Z would be awarded 13 points each. The next points to be calculated would be the 11 5th place points.  
  Example #2                
    There is a five-way tie for 14th Place.        
    Since we do not award points for places 16, 17 and 18, the five golfers would share the points for 14th and 15th places (three points).  
    Each golfer would receive 3/5 or 0.6 points.      
    Fractions of a point count and are not rounded to the nearest point.
