Absolutely no idea what number of picks I'm on. Spreadsheet says 21 but that was a while ago.

Spreadsheet has you both at 32 now before these picks. If you can review and keep me honest, that'd be great. I think it's correct, but I did it quick so I might be off.
I only play out of habit and figure once I'm out of picks that will eventually be reflected on the spreadsheet.

Sorry everyone, I had to get back to Seattle and by the time I was back and set up again, I totally forgot to update.

@James P stopped my attempt at the Golden Slam and USO title defense, and in the process won his first US Open, first Slam, and 4th title in total. 2nd place was @Locotus, then me.

In terms of the Race, I still lead, but James P is catching up. Then it's @gn then Locotus. There have been some mixups, but the Race is beginning to wind down. As of this moment there are still 6500 points in contention. This means only the top 4 in the Race have the ability to end the year #1.

A lot of change also in the Rankings, as the longtime players continue to push out those that have stopped playing. gn and Locotus are separated at #3 and #4 by just 20 points, and are dangerously close to #2 James P.

Thank you to @gn for making this all work.

Great play by everyone and I hope to see you all in Indian Wells!

On a side note, these days I find I'm running lower and lower on steam. My personal life has ramped up somewhat and I find myself unable to keep as consistent on this sheet as I used to be able to earlier in my career. I'm getting closer and closer to forgetting to update the sheet or making the fixtures far too close to the time of matches to be reasonable.

As such, I'm announcing my retirement from PPL and from admin duties on the PPL sheet. I started playing it months after I joined the forum and I just can't get that same kick that I used to from it. It's become more of a hassle than a joy, so effective with the 2022 PPL, I will be handing the job to someone else. @gn was the lead admin before me, and I hesitate to push this burden onto him. If there's anyone willing to input what's necessary for PPL 2022, let me know and we can start the process of handing-off administrative duties. If no one decides to pick up the slack, PPL will be left without an admin.

Sorry for the short notice, but things have changed drastically for me in the last couple months with a new position at work and I simply don't have the spare time I used to. Thanks for understanding and thanks for playing PPL with me for so long.
