BB Fantasy Master's Recap

Let me start by saying that this was a big hit and we're going to do it for (probably) every major from now until forever. With that, here's how we finished:

6th Place - Team Toph (+20)
Well, Jason Day withdrawing seven holes into his second round knocked him out of contention. And not having any golfers under par for the tournament didn't help. He finished with the lowest stroke total (because Day withdrew) but he combined for a +20. The breakdown:

  • Luke Donald, England (+3)
  • Jason Day, Australia (+5)(Withdrew)
  • Henrik Stenson, Sweden (+5)
  • Steve Stricker, United States (+7)
5th Place - Team Brandon (+9)
Another missed cut, although he did significantly better than Toph. 
  • Keegan Bradley, United States (+2)
  • Martin Kaymer, Germany (+6)
  • KJ Choi (+9)(Missed Cut)
  • Peter Hanson, Sweden (-8)
4th Place - Team Marin (-5)
I really though Dave was going to lose the whole thing, but he won the losers bracket (the 3 teams with golfers to miss the cut) and actually finished with a lower score to par than Team Trova. Had he not taken Ishikawa (who missed the cut), he would have been in contention for the virtual green cyberjacket. 
  • Phil Mickelson, United States (-8)
  • Adam Scott, Australia (-4)
  • Ryo Ishikawa, Japan (+9)(Missed Cut)
  • Sergio Garcia, Spain (-2)
And now, onto the teams that all made the cut:

3rd Place - Team Trova (+16)
Yes, he finished with the second-lowest score to par. But he didn't draft any players who got cut, and that earned him the bronze. 
  • Tiger Woods, United States (+5)
  • Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland (-2)
  • Trevor Immelman, South Africa (+13)
  • Francesco Molinari, Italy (E)
And then, it got confusing. We decided Monday morning (after the tournament was finished) that the official rule was that the winner of the green jacket (in real life) earned a 3-stroke bonus for his team. With that in mind...:

2nd Place - Team Jay (-11)
  • Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland (+5)
  • Hunter Mahan, United States (-2)
  • Justin Rose, England (-4)
  • Louis Oosthuizen, South Africa (-10)
1st Place - Team Daggington (-13)
  • Lee Westwood, England (-8)
  • Charl Schwartzel, South Africa (+8)
  • Bubba Watson, United States (-10)
  • Geoff Ogilvy, Australia (E)
And when you factor in the 3-stroke bonus for Bubba winning the tournament, Team Dag pulls ahead of Team Jay and takes the virtual green cyberjacket.
