Declaring the Winner of our British Open Best Ball Challenge

british-open-best-ball-23challengePhil Mickelson went HAM in the final round of the British Open and delivered a performance that will be near or at the top of his career highlight real. Like we’ve done for each of the previous Majors we ran a Best Ball Challenge (via ESPN). After 4 rounds of changing lineups and inserting golfers that many of us couldn’t name we’ve got a winner. Congratulations to college fraternity brother and current Duke and Detroit sports fan Paul Wilson. He won with a -33 by the skin of his teeth as he took the aggregate tiebreaker from “Clad’s Killers” (the tiebreaker was lowest score when combining all of the Majors). Wilson wins a Bacon Sports Tecmo Bowl t-shirt and “Clad’s Killers” wins two Bacon Sports Canadian Bacon Punts on 3rd Down koozies. If you are “Clad’s Killers” send an email to [email protected] so that we can get your address and send you the koozies.

See ya at the PGA Championship in August for the final leg of our Best Ball Challenge series!
