The Weekly Steemit Scramble Contest


Tournament Information


PGA Championship
August 10 – 13, 2017
Quail Hollow – Charlotte, North Carolina

The PGA Tour heads to North Carolina for the final major of the season – the PGA Championship, hosted by the Quail Hollow Club. The PGA Championship will be played on the 7600-yard, par-71 course at Quail Hollow, which is hosting the event for the first time. The defending champion is Jimmy Walker, who shot a -14 to beat Jason Day by one stroke and claimed the $1.8 million prize. Walker and Day will be in the field for this year’s tournament. However, Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win the tournament, having won at Quail Hollow twice – and he also holds the course record.

The current weather forecast for Charlotte has high temperatures in the 80s with rain and thunderstorms on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Player Selections and Multiplier


For the weekly Steemit Scramble, select three golfers from the tournament field that you believe will perform well and finish highest in the final standings. Based on the final results of the tournament, golfers will be assigned the following points:

1st – 5th place7
6th – 15th4

THIS WEEK’S 2x MULTIPLIER: Pick the FINAL SCORE FOR RORY MCILROY FOR THE TOURNAMENT in relation to par. (Example: -5, E, +3) The closest participant(s) to the multiplier statistic will earn DOUBLE their total points for the week. Bonus points will be added to the contestants’ point totals AFTER the multiplier has been calculated.

Contestants that do not select a unique golfer combination will be ineligible for the multiplier and winning golfer bonuses.
