Golf Tips - 'Player of The Week' 2022 (W/B 4th July)

Postby PompeyJim » Mon Jul 04, 2022 2:09 pm

Welcome to Week 27 of Player of the Week 2022, hope everyone are keeping safe and well.

There are five tournaments this week featuring the DP World Tour's Scottish Open.


If you have not played in previously then please feel free to come and have a go, below are the competition rules and scoring.

Player of the Week 2022:

*Change for the 2022 POTW Competition

Weekly Selections

*A player can only be selected ONCE during the season. So if you select Justin Thomas for the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Week 1 you cannot select him again during the 2022 weekly competition.

Golfer To Follow For The Year

In addition to a weekly selection we are asking members to nominate a golfer to follow for the year, once you have submitted your golfer to follow for the year ahead you do not need to post he/she every time you enter a weekly pick. We will confirm each week with the weekly selections if your golfer to follow for the year is active.

The golfer to follow for the year can be from any of the recognised tours and a selection will be required when members post their first weekly entry for 2022. This selection will earn points every time they finish in the top five places in a tournament.

*Your 'Golfer to Follow for the Year' selection can also be used ONCE as a weekly selection throughout the season, scoring will be the usual weekly points criteria plus additional points if he/she finishes in the top five places in a tournament.

Selection Analysis

A key factor in the feedback from OLBG golf fans following ‘Player of the Week’ is the analysis which accompanies a member's selection so we require at least 50 WORDS explaining why you think your golfer is a good bet, this is just a few lines and extremely useful for readers looking to follow your selection.


- For your first entry of 2022 we require your 'Golfer to Follow' for the year AND your selection for that week.
- After a 'Golfer to Follow' has been submitted it will then be ONE selection per week (not a player you have selected previously in the current POTW competition), with at least 50 words explaining your pick.
- If you select a player you have already selected in an earlier week of the current POTW competition then you will be asked to pick another player, if the replacement selection is not received before the entry cut off time then your original duplicated selection will be void for that week. It is advisable to keep track of the players you have selected in previous weeks of the current POTW competition to avoid any issues.
- The same golfer CAN be selected even if he/she has already been picked by another member that week.
- If your player withdraws BEFORE the tournament starts you can select a new pick as long as it is received before the cut off for entries.
- Deadline for entries each week will be before the scheduled first tee off time of the tournament your player is competing.

*The revised competition scoring is detailed below.


- Tournament Winner = 100 points
- 2nd = 50 points
- 3rd = 35 points
- 4th = 25 points
- 5th = 20 points
- 6th to 10th = 15 points
- 11th to 20th = 10 points
- 21st to 30th = 5 points

*For events where there are less than the normal field size, the points available for finishing places will be highlighted under This Week's Tournament Section below.


- A Round Leader (1st, 2nd & 3rd) = 10 points
- Made The Cut = 5 points


(Multiplier applied to final points (Finishing Position + Additional Points) based on the win odds of the selection))

- Up to 10/1 (11.0) = Points x 1
- 11/1 (12.0) to 20/1 (21.0) = Points x 1.5
- 21/1 (22.0) to 50/1 (51.0) = Points x 2
- 51/1 (52.0) to 80/1 (81.0) = Points x 2.5
- 81/1 (82.0) to 125/1 (126.0) = Points x 3
- 126/1 (127.0) to 250/1 (251.0) = Points x 3.5
- 251/1 (252.0) to 500/1 (501.0) = Points x 4
- 501/1 (502.0) and higher = Points x 5

So the bonus multiplier works on the basis of points earned that week. For example, a player @ best priced win odds of 25/1 making the cut but finishing outside the top 30 would earn 10 points (cut points = 5) x 2 (Bonus Multiplier 21/1 to 50/1).

Another example, a player was first round leader, made the cut and finished 5th @ best priced win odds of 16/1 would earn 52.5 points (10+5+20 x 1.5).

Dead Heat rules do not apply where there are place ties for point scoring, full points will be awarded.


- Tournament Winner = 100 points
- Runner Up = 50 points
- 3rd = 25 points
- 4th = 15 points
- 5th = 10 points

* No other additional points will be awarded for this pick


All points will be doubled (including for Golfer of the Year picks) for the 4 majors (US Masters, The US Open, The Open Championship and the USPGA Championship)


£15 to the Winner, this will be the member with the highest points total at the end of the year/final tournament week.
£5 to the Runner up.


- SCOTTISH OPEN (DP World Tour) Entry deadline 07:00 Thursday
- ESTRELLA DAMM LADIES OPEN (Ladies European Tour) Entry deadline 07:00 Thursday
- LE VAUDREUIL GOLF CHALLENGE (Challenge Tour) Entry deadline 07:00 Thursday
- BARBASOL CHAMPIONSHIP (PGA Tour) Entry deadline 14:00 Thursday
- SENIOR PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP (Champions Tour) Entry deadline 14:00 Thursday

Please add your pick using the template style below so your selection and tournament is clear for readers looking to follow your pick. Please also include your 'Golfer to Follow for the Year' with your first entry (you don't need to include this pick every week).





Please feel free to ask any questions and it will be great to see as many members as possible post a selection each week and a golfer to follow for the year.

Also you can join in at any time, don’t worry if you miss a week or did not post the first week etc..

Good luck!

Player - Austin Cook (70/1)

Tournament - Barbasol Championship

Reasons for Support -

Tied 16th last week at the John Deere Classic in Illinois, the American closed with a final round of 66 at TPC Deere Run. 13th at the RBC Canadian Open a few weeks prior, Austin Cook has had multiple top ten showings at the Barbasol Championship finishing tied 44th in 2019 and tied 6th in 2015. 67-66-63 to open in 2019 and I fancy this weeks course Keene Trace is a nice fit for the PGA Tour winner. Austin Cook ticks a lot of boxes this week and at 70/1 with Sport Nation he looks real each way value as he goes in search of his second tour title at the Barbasol Championship. 66/1 with some of the high street bookmakers such as William Hill, I fancy he challenges in a weakened field where there is no doubt he is more than capable of winning.
