The 2024 edition of the LPGA Golf Pool is now open for registrations.

How’s it work?  You pick a set of players for the season, and they get points when they finish in the top-10 of LPGA Tour events.  Whoever collects the most points over the course of the season is the winner.

The pool leaderboard will be updated after each tournament, and a blog post is written to recap the week.  Subscribe to the blog if you want e-mail notifications for each update post, or you can follow @tbestdgolfsite on twitter.

There no fee to enter, but please consider making a donation to All Paws Rescue Services instead. All Paws Rescue Services is a non-profit animal rescue that is all volunteer.

The 2022 and 2023 LPGA Golf Pools had prizes for the top-5 finishers plus a prize for one other randomly selected entrant, and 2024 will have something similar.

The deadline to enter is January 18th, 2024, when the 2024 LPGA Tour season starts.
