Proposal: Contest for Q-School Rancho Mirage

Who's interested in a quick and easy contest for next week's Q-School Sectional at Rancho Mirage?

Here's how it can work:

1. Everyone picks 15 players from among the entire field that they think will make the list of 30 players and ties who advance to the Final Q-School in December. (field: http://www.lpga.com/content_1.aspx?pid=17190&mid=1)

2. You get 5 points for each correct pick. Zero points for an incorrect pick. So the max points is 75.

3. And ... a bonus of 25 points if all 15 of your picks make the top 30. So the actual possible max points is 100.

4. Deadline for submitting your picks is midnight ET on Monday, September 15, 2008. I'll keep score.

5. I have not figured out how, if at all, to integrate this into the season standings yet. Any suggestions?

INTERESTED?

Great idea Blue. I'd like to play if you're still taking new entries.

Anyone can play even if you've never played a contest here before. Entries open until midnight eastern time Monday.

I went on record in another post predicting a big performance by Michelle Wie, even though i'm not a Wie fan. This could be interesting.

I'm in.

As far as the season standings, even though for this event we are only awarding points on who advances, we could use the 15 players each person picks and add that to our season scoring average.
