PG Majors Pool
How To Join
You need to be a member and logged in at OfficeFootballPool.com. If you aren't a member already, you'll need to register first. Click on the link below (or copy and paste it into your browser) and you will be guided through the process for joining this pool, including registering if you need to.
If you have any problems or questions joining the pool, please let me know. You can also contact the website manager for help (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You will make your picks on the officefootballpool.com website under PICKS. You have a budget of  units for selecting up to  golfers. The price for each golfer is based on their World Ranking and is typically between 0.25 units, for the lowest rated golfers, to 11 units or more for the highest rated golfers. As an example, you can pick 10 golfers with medium to low rankings or you can pick 3 golfers with high rankings or any combination in between so long as you don't exceed the budget of 30 units.
The website attempts to show only the golfers that are participating in each tournament. However, it is up to you to know which golfers are actually playing. Health and other issues can force golfers to withdraw from the tournament and the website may not make the updates before you enter your picks.
The pick deadline for this pool will be shown on the Picksheet and under the Pool Settings. No picks can be entered after the pick deadline. The pool manager can change the pick deadline and picks may be entered after the tournament starts. In the event that picks are entered after the tournament starts, the website will flag those picks as having been entered late.
The pool standings are based on the combined money winnings of each person's team of golfers. The team that earns the most money is ranked first in the standings. The website updates the actual money winnings several hours after the tournament ends (e.g. Sunday evening). The standings are not final until approved by the pool manager.
After each round, the website shows the projected standings based on estimates for money winnings if the tournament were to end that day. You can check the standings after each round to see your projected standings.
There is no tiebreaker. If 2 or more people have the same number of points, it is considered a tie.
It is your responsibility to confirm that your own picks are accepted by the website. You should see the Congratulations Screen after submitting your picks and you should receive a pick confirmation email. If you are still unsure if your picks were accepted, you should return to the picksheet, not by using your browser's back button, but by clicking on the My Picks link. If your picks were accepted they will be prefilled on the picksheet.
If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and what the player says he/she entered, the website will be considered correct. If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and a pick confirmation email, the website will be considered correct.
