    Hey all!!

    With the start of the new PGA Tour season, we are going to try something fun – a Pros vs Joes Golf contest.

    Here is how we will do it: Notorious and I will combine thoughts to put up a cash game lineup. Each week, we will take on two random RG members to play our squad. We will do a free H2H on DraftKings with you.

    If the Pros win…. we get nothing.
    If the Joes win, you get bragging rights and RG SWAG!

    Get on the waiting list by replying in this thread. First come, first served, starting THIS WEEK!

    Remember, it’s a 2 v. 2 challenge with 1 lineup, so sign up with a partner or else you will be put together with another solo person so you will get to know them!

    Most importantly, let’s have some fun! These were really fun when some RG folks did 2 v. 2 in MLB.

    SCHEDULE

    Note: If there is enough interest, I will change the schedule so that we are doing two of these per week. There are around 40-45 weeks to fill for the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Season, so keep the sign ups coming.

    Note 2: If your DK user name differs from what I have in this post, please let me know. I will be sending the H2H invite to the first person listed, unless I can’t find their user name. Be sure to reach out to your partner if you don’t know them so you can communicate!

    This one could be pretty close. I think the Pros have the advantage and a much stronger team but anything could happen.
