Ah yes. Time for the British Open Championship or what some refer to as just The Open Championship. Whatever the case may be, I had to place bets with fellow friends and family. So, what happens is we each pick one person at a time(first pick is decided by flipping a coin) and hope that person wins. If none of our picks win, whichever person is highest on the leader board at the end of the forth round wins. So, if someone picks Tiger Woods to win the British Open and he ends up being tied for 5th at the end, he wins! As long as that pick beats someone else's pick that's tied 6th or lower anyway. And, of course, the prize isn't anything all that grand. However, it does consist of "losers" taking "winner" out to dinner wherever "winner" decides to go. So, here are the picks thus far and most likely this is it:
My father: Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia
Our friend Marshal: Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods
Myself: Ernie Els, Davis Love III
Note: I thought we were going to pick three(3) players each hence the reason I didn't get my last pick and was snaked in the end by my father for Sergio Garcia.
Anyway, wish me luck! I sure could go for some Buca Di Beppo or something of that nature.
