Golf Tips - 'Player of The Week' 2022 (W/B 13th June)

Postby PompeyJim » Mon Jun 13, 2022 4:29 pm

Welcome to Week 24 of Player of the Week 2022, hope everyone are keeping safe and well.

There are five tournaments this week headlined by the PGA Tour's US Open, the third major of the season.


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.


- ARAMCO TEAM SERIES LONDON - INDIVIDUAL (Ladies European Tour) Entry deadline 07:00 Thursday
- KASKADA GOLF CHALLENGE (Challenge Tour) Entry deadline 07:00 Thursday
- US OPEN (PGA Tour) Entry deadline 14:00 Thursday
- MEIJER LPGA CLASSIC (LPGA Tour) Entry deadline 14:00 Thursday
- WICHITA OPEN (Korn Ferry Tour) Entry deadline 14:00 Thursday

*Reminder - Scoring points are doubled (not the Odds bonus multiplier) for US Open selections.

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 - Matt Fitzpatrick (30/1)

Tournament - U.S.Open

Reasons for Support -

Since finishing tied 6th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am to start the year on the PGA Tour, the Englishman posted back to back top ten finishes at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and Arnold Palmer Invitational. Tied 5th at both the Valspar Championship and the US PGA Championship with a runner up finish at the Wells Fargo Championship in between, Fitzpatrick posted another top ten last week at the RBC Canadian Open. Matt Fitzpatrick won the US Amateur at Brookline in 2013 and I fancy he returns to Boston and The Country Club to challenge for the first major title of his career. William Hill and Bet Victor are the industry best price at time of writing offering 30/1 and I am siding with a big week for the 27 year old from Sheffield.

Player : Linn Grant. 11-2. Skybet

Event : Eramco Team Series London

Reason for Support : After performing wonders last week in The Scandinavian Mixed winning by nine shots I have to back her in this Let Tour event. She has played six times this season and has won three times and been in the top seven 5 times, she only turned pro last year. She has a big future and could be a great, she will turn 23 years next Monday. Gl all

Sam Burns 33/1

US Open

Sam Burns has won twice on the PGA Tour this season, and had a 4th place finish at the Canadian Open last week. Still at an early stage of his career, he has played only 8 majors so far with a best finish of 20th, but that 20th place at the US PGA last month was only six shots behind the winner in a crowded field, so I think could be classed as a better result than 20th place might look.

(Previous picks Alexander Bjork, Shane Lowry, Victor Perez, Joaquin Niemann, Brooks Koepka, Nate Lashley, Zander Lombard, Brian Harman, Daniel Berger, Matt Fitzpatrick, Daniel van Tonder, Jason Day, Dean Burmester, Min Woo Lee, Kevin Kisner, Xander Schauffele)
