* ArtisticLicenseSports: Upon their request to have the championship match declared a draw approved, Bart and Todd are each presented a check for $25, the $50 grand prize being evenly divided among them. In real life, when multiple players tie in a golf tournament, the prize money for that position plus the positions below involved in the tie are added together, and divided evenly among the players in the tie. For example, if two players tie for third, and third pays $100,000, and fourth pays $50,000, then that money would be added together, and each player would get $75,000. So, the $50 grand prize should've been combined with the $25 runner-up prize, and Bart and Todd should've each gotten checks for $37.50.
