Sweep Update Day 1

A colleague of Jason’s (and a recent winner of one of the sweeps) asked him today why we do this? If the answer is we like resolving issues we’ve had a very rewarding day! Jason was all lined up to sit back watch the early golf coverage with the only interruption being switching over to watch the races from Aintree…but ended up trying to load the sweep information to his website and having to call his team in India for assistance. We encountered a few email issues where entries hadn’t been received by either Jason or myself even though they looked like they had been sent by participants. On that note please check that your team is included in the sweep as early identification of issues means we have a chance of resolving them. A further 11 teams were added to the published starting list where we had either missed them or they came in after our cut off for publishing the initial information. The additional £275 has been added to the main prizes making the payouts:
1st £2,600
2nd £1,300
3rd £900
4th £650
5th £440
6th £300
Further checks will be undertaken tomorrow and hopefully we’ll have a quieter day within our sweep. The payments will be reconciled so if you forgot to make any payments please do so asap to save us chasing. The sweep entry fee was increased to £25 per team so if you hadn’t noticed this increase and only paid £20 please pay the extra £5 per team.  A sweep leaderboard is attached in the pdf showing the scores when play stopped this evening. I’ll let those in contention have a nice surprise when they open it and see their name near the top. For others having to search lower down our list there is still a long way to go and there will be the consolation events starting in Round 3 based on how many missed cut golfers you have where everyone in the respective missed cut categories starts equal since it is the weekend only scores for your team. Not the big money to win in these consolation events but the prizes are still worth having. In the history of running these sweeps all winners in the main event have teams where all 6 golfers make the cut so you need to hope all your men make the cut.
One of our other issues we’ve had in this sweep is with our own email distribution where some of the batches didn’t send out to everyone – this has happened with the initial invitation but also repeated with the entry details email Jason sent Thursday morning. We can only apologise to those impacted by some of our issues this week and it highlights the need to automate parts of the process to make it easier for us and smoother for all.
The bad weather caused the later start and meant not everyone completed their rounds. Conditions did appear to get tough with the wind getting up during the afternoon into the evening. Scheffler looks ominous but had a very lucky break at the 13th. Bryson played well in the earlier part of the day and he was only included in 15 of the sweep teams. Willett only cost 13 units and this is clearly where the value in our sweep lies at the moment – only 5 teams identified the value on offer. At the other end Matsuyama was a high-frequency selection (62 teams) but struggled and Meronk, included in one of JK’s teams, will do very well to make the cut – nothing like putting the boot into someone after they’ve had a tough day but I’m sure JK will be very happy when he opens up the sweep list to see how his other team, where he didn’t include Meronk, is performing. At the start I mentioned reasons for doing this and I’m sure if JK stays up there and wins he can give his colleague 2,600 reasons why he does it!
