A lot of people seem to think that because they didn’t participate in the first week of the Doc Watson’s Big $$$ Bonanza, they are no longer eligible to win. Not true. I will only be counting the top five scores, and the contest lasts eight weeks, so the more you play, the better your odds. But I don’t imagine too many teams will be playing all eight weeks, so missing the first week is not that big of a deal. The winner of the contest gets $300, 2nd place gets $150, and 3rd gets $50.
