Sportsline Live’s Second Major Golf Calcutta [UPDATED]
The second major of the 2014 golf season is underway in North Carolina. Sportsline Live has kept with tradition and is holding its second golf Calcutta of the year.
Listeners that tuned in to Sportsline Live (SLL) Tuesday and Wednesday were eligible to select any two golfers from this year's field of golf's second major. SLL also gave participants a chance to play roulette. This is where a listener could choose a group number, 1-52, and a golfer number, 1-3, to get their two golfers. Another opportunity was to select one golfer and then choose to play roulette for another selection.
If a participant's two golfers combine for the lowest total score in relation to par, that person wins a golf-related prize pack from Sportsline Live. In the event of a tie, the lowest final round score of an individual golfer is used as a tie-breaker. If a golfer misses the cut on Friday or withdraws for whatever reason, a participant is out of the running for the prize pack.
The four co-hosts of SLL, David, Scott, Jerrad and Patrick, plus Patrick's parents and Townsquare Media staff member Brian are also taking part in the Calcutta contest, but are not eligible for any of the prizes.
Good luck to all of our entrants.
