    Very true...I just circled the top two..and those rankings could easily change as the picks continue, because they were apart by only one pick with a gap of 40 before the next!

    I found it interesting.

    I have the privilege and pleasure of help out at this years National Amateur. This will be my first one and at the ripe old age of 62 I feel like a kid going to Disneyland for the first time. Being born and raised here in the great state of Oregon I am hoping everyone will appreciate the beauty of the rolling hills and farm lands of the Umpqua Valley. I would be lying if I didn’t hope that a local dog and handler took home the blue but I do wish everyone the very best of luck.

    I am adding Barton Creeks Sharp Shooter (Blaser) and tom Barrale to my rooting list. Don't know them but since they were the only team that nobody picked, I am officially rooting for them to do well.
