6:11 PM ET: Phil vs. Phil gets washed out:
If you played the Phil prop you are now unlocked to make other another selection. The round hasn't offiicially be postponed yet but our friend Jason Sobel is blogging from the press tent and says they're done. So it was recorded it as a 1-1 push and scored as if it didn't happen. Before the rain delay Phil got in 5 holes - with 1 bogie and 1 birdie - before they blew the horn at Oakland Hills. Weather is a risk with playing golf props, and while we look at weather forecast before posting them they're bound to happen. With the leaders not even teeing off a Monday finish is looking very possible.

Today's Preview: While the kids (or maybe even you) are watching the morning cartoons you can have some fun of your own with our game. Starting at 8:00 a.m. Team USA's Candace Parker takes on the leading scorer of Czech Republic in a points duel in Beijing. Starting at noon ESPN's has a doubleheader of Regional Finals for berth into next week's Little League World Series. At noon in Indy, South Dakota takes on Minnesota, a team they beat 13-3 on Monday night. At 2:00 p.m., only a few miles from Streak Headquarters here, Connecticut takes on New Hampshire. We like the local boys who have outscored opponents 46-1 so far in the tournament. At 1:10 Phil Mickelson tees off 4-strokes back and you can play his birdie + eagle total vs. bogies. Note any doubles or triples or worse will not be included in the bogies side, we're just going to count par+1 holes. Depending on where you live, Fox has some MLB baseball for you starting at 3:55. On the east coast, we have a prop featuring Cano + Jeter total bases vs Lackey strikeouts. Big John only recorded 4 K's last week in The Stadium, but NY's middle infielders are hot and cold so we list this one as a toss-up. Four night games in the MLB round out the day with 11 total matchups to choose from. If you time them right it could be a 5-win day. Best bets: S Dakota, Phil bogies, Connecticut, Diamondbacks.

Yesterday's results: At night's end the overall winning PCT checked in at 53.5%, thanks in big part to the two Los Angeles MLB teams. Inter Milan goes on record as the most selected loser. No movement atop the leaderboard with both top entries making no picks.
