2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Aug 05, 2013 2:47 pm

First off, congratulations to Austin Powers, winner of Round 1 of the 2013 SHC. He receives a bid in this year's SHC Tournament of Champions.

Further congratulations to what may be the deepest field the SHC has ever seen. Of the 121 players who played at least one day (up from last year's 111, and closing in on what I think is the record of 124), more than 40 (including 7 Rookies) posted a score over 300 for the first week, and 7 broke 400.

Memo to me: Step your game up.

Great job, people.

Also Re: Spoiler Tags -- On the front page, you can see in the thread title how many pages a particular thread has in it. If you see that the SHC game thread has already rolled over onto a second page, you may omit spoiler tags if you wish.

On we go.
