The next round of the LintzOnline PGA tipping competition is now open. Click on over to http://www.lintzonline.com and enter your tips for the John Deere Classic where Steve Stricker is the defending champion. If you’ve just signed up the rules are the same as the ISG tipping competition from last year in that you need to tip 4 players each week, one from OZ, USA, Rest Of The World and a Bonus player with their combined world golf rankings not exceeding 10 points. The rest of the rules are on the site. Good Luck!!

Round 1 saw a lot of low scores with Kris Blanks shooting the low round with a 63 to lead by 1 shot from David Love III, Matt McQuillan and Steve Marino. Only a couple of shots back is Steve Stricker, the 2 time defending champion. If he putts as good as he did when he won at 'Jacks' he'll be hard to beat again this week. The best of the aussies after the first round is Cameron Percy who matched Stricker with a 5 under 66. Mike Weir, the former Masters champion continues to have a season to forget. With only 2 cuts made from 13 events and an opening 4 over 75 he looks to have yet another weekend off. His world ranking has ballooned from 21st (2 years ago) to currently 445! The leading squads after the first round are BigBillP, billp, Dragonwinner, Hagler and Pippolo who will all be hoping Steve Marino can come from behinsd to win his first PGA event. GoTigerWoods2000, the current overall leader doens't look like he'll add to his prize money this week as he only has 1 player teeing it up and after the first round he's way back in 111th position. We could have another change at the top at the end of the tournament!! To view your squads progress visit www.lintzonline.com. Good Luck!

Round 2 saw Chez Reavie go low, super low with a 9 under 62 and move him into the lead. Other big movers in the second round with 64's were Steve Stricker, the defending champion, aussie Nathan Green, Jhonattan Vegas and Chris Stroud. The third round started the same way for Striker in which he ended the second, making birdies. At the end of the round he'd had 8 birdies and no bogeys for a 63 and a 2 shot lead over Brendon de Jonge who also shot a 63. The best of the aussies is Cameron Percy who is currently T5 and looking for his best finish on tour. A top 5 finish will move Percy to around 150th on the money list and good way to keeping his card for next year. I've got an issue looking at the squad summarys after the 3rd round but no squad has Sticker. However there are 2 squads who have Brendon de Jonge and one of them is me!!! I hope he shoots another 63 and comes away with his first victory as I would then be leading my own tipping comp!!!!! To view your squads progress visit www.lintzonline.com. Good Luck!

What a final round it turned out to be. Steve Stricker had a 2 shot lead heading into the final round with everyone attempting to chase him down. Brendon de Jonge, Strickers closest opponent couldn't put another 64 together and instead signed for a 74 but still T7 overall. Kyle Stanley had a fairly quiet front 9 but then his putter got read hot on the back and strung a bunch of birdies together and soon found himself with a 2 shot lead with 2 to play. A missed par putt from 8 feet on the 18th drop him into a tie for the lead with Stricker after he had made birdie on the 17th. Stricker then hit the shot of the tournament out of the fairway bunker and rolled in a birdie to win the tournament for the 3rd straight year! Cameron Percy was the best of the aussies after finishing T7. The leading squad for the week was jonho who nearly doubled the prize money of the second placed YuaneunYang. With not many of the big names playing this week (all over the pond practicing for the Brittish Open) there was not much movement on the overall leaderboard.
