Choosing your Team
Each entrant chooses 4 players to form a team, choosing one player from the Top 8 ranked players in the world (as of 3/27/22), one player from the rest of the current World Top 25 ranked players in the world, one player from the remaining Americans, and one player from the remaining International players.
Your team’s aggregate score, relative to par, is your team score. For example:
|Your Team’s Score
Please note, if one or more players on your team misses the cut, the 36 hole score for that player will be DOUBLED and used in your total (for instance, you choose a player who misses the cut at +4, he will be counted at +8 for your total team score). Also note that if you choose a player who is DQ’d or WD’s, your team will be DQ’d. Such is life, my friend.
Like last year we will have a “Live Leaderboard” site that refreshes our M4M scores in nearly real time. You will receive email updates periodically through the tournament, including a comprehensive daily update at the end of each day.
*Pro tip: Unless you’re entering a team in the Hindenburg Bracket, it’s probably not a good idea to pick Sandy Lyle
You will be asked to predict the winner’s score, relative to par, only to be used in the event of a tie (last year Hideki Matsuyama finished -10). If 2 entrants have the same aggregate team score, the player with a more accurate tiebreaker will win the M4M. For example, if Entrant 1 predicts the Masters winner will shoot -15, and Entrant 2 predicts the winner will shoot -8, and the Masters winner actually shoots -14, then Entrant 1 will win. If we still have a tie after the tiebreaker we will then split the first and second place prize. There will be no tiebreakers to determine if there is a tie beyond 1st place (for example, if you tie for 3rd place with another participant, you will split the 3rd and 4th place prizes with that participant).
Prizes and Payout
1/3 of the team entry fees is directed to Camp Ho Mita Koda to fund scholarships for underprivileged children to attend a special and life-changing diabetes camp this summer. The rest is used for a variety of payouts which will be detailed in a comprehensive email to all entrants on Thursday morning that will include a link to the Live Leaderboard and Team Selections, and information on our prizes. In 2021, our first place winner took home $15,000, and dozens more won a variety of prizes totaling $40k. There will be daily prizes and I will have a discretionary fund used for various fun contests throughout the tourney.
DEADLINE TO MAKE YOUR TEAM SELECTIONS IS THURSDAY, APRIL 7TH BY 12:01 AM EASTERN. SELECTIONS MADE AFTER THE FIRST GOLFER TEES OFF ON THURSDAY WILL BE FORFEITED.
Please understand I need time to organize, so please save us both the heartache and make your selections sooner than later (like right now would be great!). Thanks!
This website is the ONLY way to enter the M4Max Challenge. I will not accept any team selections via email or text.
What if I choose Tiger and he WD’s before the tournament starts? Can I change one of my picks after I’ve submitted my team?
No. Sorry. There are thousands of entries and it’s simply too much to track. Believe it or not, I do in fact have a real job (with a very understanding boss) and this is not DraftKings, so. CAVEAT EMPTOR.
While I get a TON of help from several awesome people at Propel Marketing Group and Camp Ho Mita Koda, I am the sole Board Member when it comes to running the M4Max Challenge and all decisions. Please know that I make ZERO money off of this and in fact donate extra to the cause, so bear with me if there are any glitches; if there are rules questions or any dispute, I will make a final decision by consulting Bonzo the Baboon of the San Diego Zoo.
Have fun and good luck!!
