I apologize for the delay in releasing these results. The champion of the 2011 LFTL US Open Pool is Mikey H. Not only was Mikey the only player to take Rory McIlroy, but he also had Jason Day on his roster. This combination helped Mike over come his numerous picks that missed the cut.
Mikey's winning earnings (money won by his picks, not by him) of over $2.4M but him ahead of second place by more than $1M. Second place was won by Erik Sproll, while Burke, our Masters Pool winner took the bronze.
We'd also like to note that fellow golf blogger Chris Chaney finished DFL in our pool. Sorry, Chris. If it is any consolation, I only beat you buy about 60-grand, and I made the groupings! Be sure to stop by Chris' site at wrongfairway.com. Usually, Chris write posts that are just long enough to be a welcome break in your work day. He posts multiple times a day, which will give you multiple breaks from your boring job. Also, his writing is damn good. Be sure to read his post from June 21st about those US Open stories that were overshadowed by Rory's romp at Congressional.
That's it. I look forward to our British Open Pool next month. I am 100% sure that it will be our second straight pool where picking Tiger isn't an option due to his absence from the tournament. Just wanted to go on record with that.
