I've never done fantasy stuff so is this my roster for the season or can I add and drop players per tournament?

You set your roster each week...only 10 starts per player for the year. You can sub your bench in mid tourney too but if you use a player, even just for one round, it counts as one of the 10. One of my earlier posts goes over the ins and outs of Yahoo.

@RFKFREAK, fantasy golf is fun and it will keep you current of the Tour Players.

 

The key is to track players who are playing well and start these guys.

Going with Top Players sometimes will not be the best overall results.

 

The key is scoring "Points for each round" all four days.

Keep in mind, "points are awarded for each day", not the current daily leaders or position.

The total of the points for four rounds, plus bonus points is each participants weekly score.

 

Lowest round score gets 20 points.

Example: Phil shoots 68 in first round and is the lowest score for the day.

Any player who also shoots 68 will get 20 points.

Any player who shoots 69 will get 18 points.

If the next lowest score by a player is 70, then they would get 16.

Scoring is in increments of 2 points.

 

There will be times when a player goes "LOW" and has a round of 62 (example)

Next lowest score of the day is 70. That player or players would only score 6 points.

All players who shoot 73 or higher, will get Zero points.

 

Also, the 10 rounds by a player rule, does not happen that often. Yahoo shows the starts for each player every week. Just don't ride a favorite player for each week they play.

 

If you have any Q's or need advise, throw the Q on this thread, someone will help out.

Or, shoot me any Q and I will help out.

So, when do the standings get updated?  I'm excited to see where I stand - haha.

 

pt - Very tough seeing how beautiful it is where they're playing while I'm surrounded by snow. :~(

They usually post scores about 4 hours after the round is over.
Watching the news seems like many areas battling weather...I am in west coast and we've had a pretty good winter...got 9 in today and was sunny but wind was howling...

The league standing are posted at the end of the event, I believe.

You can view your individual scores at anytime once the event starts.

 

Unlike F Football, the points are not "Live interactive" they are projected points.

 

My first round results, 48 points, which is OK.

As usual, my bench out scored my starters, 50 points.

 

Not seeing what other teams score during the event, is somewhat bogus.

But it prevents team managers from selecting players based on who the opposition has playing.

PS, Jordan Spieth is the real deal. He has picked up right where he left off in the fall.

Also, Check out the "New Rad Look" Zachary is sporting this weekend.

Keep him in the radar, he's going to have a break season.

Haha - my bench outdid my starters, too.  Only one of my starters put up a good number. :doh:

Thanks for setting this up. I just signed up today, and it seems a little unfair that I got to put in a team after the first round. Can you do this every week? This is my first time playing, and I thought you would have to pick your team before the tournement starts.

You should be able to set your line up for the 2 round today.

It must be set before they tee off.

 

It is a long season and you will be able to make up the first round points you have missed out on.

 

Thanks for joining, it's a fun league and it will keep you current with the Tour players results.

Can't do this each week....must be because it is week one. Usually if you miss the deadlines for the start of a tournament you are stuck with your team from the previous week, and they aren't always in the field etc... Thanks for joining it is a good time and keeps interest up in the tour..

You can now see the group standings . Click on the Sandtrap group off your main page and it will show the group standings after each round. 68 leads the group from yesterday...an impressive total.

Maybe it will not post my scores, and my team will carry over to week 2. I guess we will find out in a few hours.
