British Open

Nothing better than a little winter weather and Player of the Game Golf. Back to the ATG tour...

Billy Casper held off Jack Nicklaus to win the British Open. Casper's B Trouble rating was the difference--he had a Big Day/Bad Day TRB result of -4 in the second round, and a straight -3 TRB result in the third round. Nicklaus used his great Round Scores, plus some good Mod rolls to stay in the hunt.

It was Casper's second win on the tour (the other was at the Canadian Open).

Next up the ATGers return to the north country for the Minnesota Open.

Minnesota Open

Byron Nelson overcame a slow start to win the Minnesota Open. Nelson was +3 after the first round (Fairway test, A rating), but he stormed back in the second round with a 64 (-8), thanks to a BD Fairway roll that went in his favor. Ben Hogan still had a 2-shot leading going into the final round, but he found Trouble (+2), opening the door for Nelson, who rolled a -1 Mod, along with his -1 Final Round rating, giving him a one-shot win.

Jack Nicklaus was the runner-up for the third tourney in a row.

The tour heads south next for the Monterrey Open.

Thank you for resuming your posts. I went back and read from the beginning, very enjoyable.

POTG Golf is a great game. Hopefully the recently completed 2013-14 PGA season will be released soon.

Thanks, Jeff. Your Ryder Cup project inspired me to get back at this one. I really want to do something with 1983, too.

The 2013 set came out in April, but maybe with a little luck we'll see it earlier this year.

Dave, thanks for letting me know, I have a lot of fun doing the write ups. Getting ready to do the next one now.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that the set comes out earlier, it's a definite buy for me whenever it comes out.

Monterrey Open

Greg Norman had a steady if not spectacular tournament, winning the Monterrey Open by two strokes over Tom Watson and Sam Snead. A -2 Mod roll combined with a -2 Final Round rating made the difference.

The win, Norman's fourth of the season, moved him into first place in the money standings.

The tour continues the southern swing with a stop in Texas for the Houston Open.

For those out there who haven't seen the game, here's a shot of a tournament in progress. I use random number sheets rather than dice.

Dave,

Thanks,
Jeff

Course cards and related cards are 6x4. Player cards are 6x3. Is the pdf version a different size?

In the PDF, the course cards are 3 to a page, the golfer cards are 9 to a page.

The Houston Open

Gary Player came out of nowhere to win the Houston Open by three shots, his first victory on the tour.

Player was in 11th place after the first round, moved up to 7th place after the second round, dropped back to 8th after the third round, then had a -5 Big Day/Bad Day Par 4 result (B rating) in the final round for the win.

None of the golfers above Player on the leaderboard had a minus result in that last round, and leader Greg Norman had a +3 Putting result.

We stay in the state of Texas for the next tour stop, the Dallas Invitational.

Dallas Invitational

Greg Norman won for the second time in three weeks, carding an impressive -22 to beat Gene Sarazan by three shots. Norman had straight minus modifiers the first three rounds (-3, -3, -5) and a -4 Big Day/Bad Day putting result on the final round.

Interesting tournament, held on a far less challenging course than previous weeks. Loaded with minus modifier results, including one -5 and and two -4. No +SD results (single die roll, added to the score). Only four plus modifier results. Just eight skill/score check results. In Houston last week, there were six plus modifiers and 13 skill/score checks.

On to Tennessee for the Memphis Classic.

Memphis Classic

Sam Snead got off to a fast start, 63, 67, then cruised to a win at the Memphis Classic. Snead had a -6 Big Day Par 5 result and a -4 Drive Skill check on the first two rounds. Gene Sarazan tried to keep up with him using lucky mod rolls, but he faded at the end.

Money leader Greg Norman finished 16th, thirteen shots off the pace.

Heading out to the desert next for the Phoenix Open.

Phoenix Open

Lee Trevino putted his way to victory at the Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, his first win on the tour. Putting Skill check in the last two rounds, -2, -4 (Trevino is a B-rated putter).

There was a four-way tie for second going into the final round, two shots behind Trevino, but three of the four challengers rolled straight + mods, and the fourth, Tom Watson, got a -1 mod, but it wasn't nearly enough. Greg Norman managed to slip past the logjam to take second place, which put him over $7 million in prize money.

Tough tourney for Don Duffer, who hacked his way to an 85 in the second round. Bad Day/Trouble result of +9!

The PGA Championship is up next.

Heading into the final round of the PGA Championship, Ben Crenshaw of all people is tied for the lead with Greg Norman. He had a -6 SD result in the third round, the only golfer to break 70, just one of those days when everything went his way.

Ben is 23rd on the money list, his best tourney so far a 5th place finish at the Maui Invitational.

His final Round Score is 0, while Norman's is -2, and the rest of the field is right on their heels, but anything can happen, would be fun to see an upset.
