2014 U-PICK-EM CONTEST
WORLD FAMOUS U-PICK-EM CONTEST
BRITISH SENIOR OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP RECALCULATED
U-PICK-EM results and standings have been recalculated to correct for a currency exchange error on the original reporting of the British Senior Open Championship.
The original results for this event were reported in Euros on the official British Senior Open Championship Web site. U-PICK-EM converted these Euros to dollars by using the current exchange rate.
Later, on Monday evening or Tuesday morning, the New York Times reported results for this event with dollars won. The New York Times report differed from the dollars originally posted by U-PICK-EM. To be consistent with all other events, we have recalculated the results and standings using the report from the New York Times.
TIM CLARK WINS RBC CANADIAN OPEN
BERNHARD LANGER DOMINATES BRITISH SENIOR OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Tim Clark won the RBC Canadian Open and none of our U-PICK-EM contestants picked him. Our best picks for this event were by twenty-nine people who had Jim Furyk and his second place finish paid $615,600.
In the British Senior Open Championship, Bernhard Langer almost lapped the field in winning by thirteen strokes. We had eighty-four people who picked Langer for this event and his win was worth $423,355 for each of them.
With only two weeks remaining in this year's contest, Lauren Klick of Albert Lea MN is hanging on to first place on the U-PICK-EM leaderboard. Darrell Maltby of Scottsdale AZ is in second place and David Thomas of Sun Lakes AZ is in third place.
