The third major of the 2014 golf season is underway across the pond. Sportsline Live kept with its’ tradition of holding its third Major Golf Calcutta contest.

Participants were invited to select any two golfers from this year's field of golf's third major via phone or the KOWB Facebook page Tuesday and Wednesday. Sportsline Live also gave participants a chance to play roulette. This is where a listener could have chosen a group number, 1-52, and a golfer number, 1-3, to get their two golfers. Another way you could have entered your two-some was to select one golfer and then chose to play roulette for your other selection. You cannot select the same two golfers as another participant, unless it’s the same as a host’s picks.

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 the primary 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 co-hosts of SLL, David, Scott and Jerrad, as well as Townsquare Media staff member Brian and former co-host Patrick are also taking part in the Calcutta, but are not eligible for any of the prizes.

Good luck to all the participants.
