Australian golf experts’ tipping challenge – Australian Open results

How did the experts go in tipping the winner of the Australian Open?
We’ve pitted some of Australia’s golf experts against each other to see who can make the best predictions for the three big Australian golf tournaments.
We’re using a similar point scoring system to the F1’s for the Talisker Australian Masters, Emirates Australian Open and Australian PGA Championship. Three picks for each expert and all points are totalled.
Finish  1st   2nd   3rd   4th   5th   6-10   11-15   16-20   21-25   26-30 
Points 25 18 15 12 10 8 6 4 2 1

No one picked Peter Senior or any of the top three players on what was a wild final day at The Australian Open. Luke Elvy and Richard Hinds were the best tipsters with all three of their picks finishing in the top 20.
Richard Hinds now takes over top spot with just the Australian PGA Championship to come this week. Grant Dodd, Martin Blake and Luke Elvy are close behind.
