I think you can join any time throughout the year (until it's full), you just will have missed one tournament, which isn't a big deal.
Most of the players who play in the TOC also play in the Sony. But you'll still want to update your choices as some new ones will be available.
I joined the group for this year. New to the board as well. This is my third year playing Yahoo Fantasy Golf. I didn't finish the first year because it got to be too frustrating, but I managed to finish last year. I ended up in the 80th percentile, which to me, is pretty good, but I would like to get better.
I felt I did well this week, had Zach Johnson and Webb Simpson for the bonus pts. but missed out on Jordan Speith. I would've been closer to first had I not switched to DJ for the final round, thinking he would finish in the top three.
If anything, my weakness is that I tend to make too many moves, instead of picking the best players and riding them out for the whole tournament.
My goal is to score better in the major tournaments. I was simply awful last year.
Yes, surprised me too...looked on Yahoo and as long as a player was active on your roster for one round in the tourney, even if they are on the bench in the last round you get the bonus points. for example, I had Webb simpson on the bench last week but he was never active, so I didn't get the bonus points, whereas Mouzer's Hackers and Slicers had Speith active for 2 rounds, and then on the bench the last 2 rounds, but still got the 10 bonus points for Speith because he had him active at one point on his roster. Adds another wrinkle to things for sure.
Why are their roster deadlines every day? Like i said in an earlier post, I put my team in round 2 because I signed up late, but it felt like cheating because i just picked guys who played well the day before. It is looking like you can change your whole team every day. Is this true? I never played before and seems to me like the only hard picks are round 1
