Final Q-School Contest

Here's the contest for the Final Q-School.

It's being posted early so people will have plenty of time to post their picks. The contest format is essentially the same as for the first two Q-school contests.

One caveat: The rules are different than in normal weekly contests because the tournament is different. Please read them carefully before playing. Participating in this contest is an optional part of life. There is no guarantee that either the actual tournament or the contest will turn out as you like it. If you do not agree with the rules or do not feel you can participate in the contest in the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship, please do not enter. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated and contestants who are not able to follow these guidelines will be disqualified. This has become a necessary condition to keep the contest fun and fair for everyone.


1. Everyone can play, even if you've never played in a contest here before.

2. The contest is for the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament held December 3 through December 7 at Daytona Beach, Florida.

3. Go here:
This is the final field.

4. Pick fifteen (15) players from this list who you predict will earn full playing status for 2009 -- Priority in Category 11. The top 20 finishers will earn this status.

5. Post the names here, like this:
(example names):
1. Jennifer Ackerson
2. Sun-Ju Ahn
3. Beth Allen
to 15.
The numbers are not a ranking. It's just to keep things organized. You are not ranking the players, just picking fifteen. If you would like to make it easy on the scorekeeper, you can post your picks in alphabetical order by last name.

6. You get 5 points for very player who earns a card in Priority Category 11. You get 2 points for every player earning conditional status in Priority Category 16 (players ranked 21-30 in the final results) and 1 point for players earning conditional status in Priority Category 20 (players ranked 31-40 in the final results). If all your players receive Priority in Category 11, you get a 25 point bonus. All players must be in Category 11 to get the bonus; no bonus is given if some players are in Category 11 and some in the other Categories.

7. If a player you have picked withdraws before her tee time in the first round, you can replace her. If a player withdraws after starting play, you get 0 points for that player.

8. You can start posting your picks anytime between now and 4 am EST on Wednesday, December 3.

Scores will be converted to a hypothetical relationship to par so they can be used in the Season Standings. The best predictor gets a 69, the worst a 73. This matches the range of our weekly contest. The scores in between will be scaled appropriately. If anyone gets the 25 point bonus, that will be also be credited with -25 points in the bonus category of the Season Standings.

Any questions -- post them here.

Get started and have fun.
