    - Rules

    This is not a golf tournament. 

    Players will earn a set amount of points (depending on the round) for each correct pick they make. 

    The player with the most points accumulated after the completion of the April MPI will win a prize!  Simple as that.

    - Scoring

    You will earn points for each correct pick made.  The point values per pick will increase each round.  The deeper your picks make it into the tournament, the more points you can win.  There are a total of 1640 possible points.  Possible points remaining (PPR) will updated as the tournament progresses.

    Correct Play-In picks are 10 points each. 

    Correct Round 1 picks are 20 points each. 

    Correct Round 2 picks are 40 points each. 

    Correct Quarterfinal picks are 80 points each.

    Correct Semifinal picks are 160 points each.

    A correct Finals pick is worth 320 points.

    No points are given for the Consolation Match pick. It will be used as a tiebreaker if it is necessary.

    - Where can I follow the scores?

    The post above this one.

    - What are the prizes?

    The winning entry will receive a stylish World Golf Tour branded Polo Shirt!  (Black, L or XL)

    One lucky random entry will also be chosen from a hat.  That person will receive a World Golf Tour branded hat! Oh the irony! (Black or White OSFA)

    Since you're gonna be posting the brackets, I won't need a copy.   So nevermind.

     " 11:59PM EDT on Friday, April 9th! "

    Babe I may be going crazy, but Friday is April 10th isn't it? From your post I'm guessing that is suppose to say Thursday not Friday.

    lol yep, you're right.  I think I originally had 12:01AM on Friday, but then changed it to 11:59PM to make it easier and forgot to change it to Thursday.
