Will you invest big bucks in Phil Mickelson to defend his Open Championship title?

After the FIFA World Cup and MLB's All-Star Game wrap up, in comes the next big event on the sports calendar, the Open Championship from Royal Liverpool, which rusn from July 17-20. Thus it's now time to sign up for the next round of Best Ball Majors.

Here's how the game works: With a salary cap of 50 fantasy bucks, you assemble a foursome of golfers who will work together to post the best round possible using "best ball" rules: where your four players' scorecards are combined and you get the lowest score of any of your four players on each hole. If three of your players all score bogeys on a particular hole, while the fourth gets a birdie, you get credit for a birdie. Thus, the game is built on birdies and eagles, not overall scores.

However, picking players isn't the only choice you have to make, because there are two different ways to play our game, with separate leaderboards for each.

In the traditional, "tournament lock" mode, players pick four golfers at the start of the tournament and stick with them throughout the weekend. If one of your players misses the cut, he's gone and there's much you can do with it other than rely on the other players on your roster to carry the team.

For those trying to keep up with things on a day-to-day basis, there's the "round lock" mode, where you're able to replace players in your foursome before each round. You can take out struggling players and add those surging names. If a player misses the cut, he can be replaced easily.
