2019-20 TST Fantasy Golf


Recommended Posts

Who is up for some Fantasy Golf?

The 2019-20 season already starts this Thursday. Many of The Sand Trap members have been partaking in Fantasy Golf for over a decade now, and we welcome all TST members to join our robust league. In the past, we have played ESPN, then Yahoo, and The Golf Channel fantasy leagues, and have used the PGA Tour Fantasy site since last season; it is fun, engaging, and does not take a lot of time, and from my experience, keeps me more interested in the PGA Tour throughout the season. And TST League is always one of the more competitive out there.

Essentially, you have to pick six players per week, and have 4 starters and 2 on the bench; the bench is there to sub in in case of missed cut etc....the catch is the season is divided into 4 Segments, and you only get to use a player 3 times per segment, so some roster management is needed. For example, even if you only put a player in your roster for a single round, it uses up one of the 3 starts for that player for the segment. Points are awarded in each round for each player for a multitude of factors (see link to the rules at the end of this post). 

To join, you must first go to https://www.pgatour.com/fantasy.html and create a Team.

Once you have done this, you go to the fantasy golf to the right tab, and choose the red "Fantasy Golf". Then,  you can join the TST Fantasy Golf league by following these steps:

Join my league in PGA TOUR Fantasy #PGATOURfantasy Golf 

League URL: https://fantasygolf.pgatour.com/api/v6/pgaroster/og/object/leagues/id/22988

League Name: TST Fantasy Golf

The password is: thesandtrap

When you sign up, I also highly recommend that you sign up for the roster alerts, which lets you know if you have not filled your roster before the deadline, and then also alerts you if a player has missed a cut, WD etc. If you miss a week, you can still play along, but it is hard to catch up.

Description: PGA TOUR Fantasy allows you to show off your knowledge of the sport by picking a team of 6 PGA TOUR Professionals (4 Starters, 2 Bench). Scoring is live and exclusive using PGA TOUR Shotlink and based on player performance on the course. Play with your friends in a private group or test your skills in one of our public groups. Whether you want to play for prizes, glory or bragging rights PGA TOUR Fantasy is the only live fantasy game where the outcome of each shot matters.

Official Rules: https://fantasygolf.pgatour.com/#/roster/rules

If you are already a member of the League from last year, no need to join again....just set your roster and our League stays there....I have tagged everyone here who was in last year, or posted in the 2018-19 thread and showed some interest. Spread the word and invite other TST members and see if we can get our numbers up.

Good luck to all.

Yep.  I still haven't figured out what the scoring was last season on this format, but I'm going to set my players each week anyway.

I miss the ESPN best ball fantasy format. :-( 

Glad you're on board @Shindig...but ESPN? We haven't used that in over a decade 😉

How in the world did you come up with Stuart Applebee this week ???  :hmm:

I seem to recall he's had success at this course in the past.  Plus, I once saw him at a tournament.  My friend and I told him we were rooting for him and he said he hopes we have a good time then.

Wait, I just checked... how did I end up with a player who isn't entered??

Well so much for having a good year, I only have 2 guys who are going to make the cut

At least my selection of Stuart Appleby didn't miss the cut! ;-) 

I also have two who made it.

    • I regret that I quit playing golf when I had kids.  I did buy them a cheap set when they were young. My daughter was never interested. My son was interested but time, money, general sense of family obligation, and fear of slow play kept us from playing more that a couple times per year, particularly after a golf buddy moved away. My son has atrial flutter, a heart tachycardia problem, that made him quit playing soccer after his sophomore year of high school.  Three ablations were not able to fix it and he relies on medication to control it now. He decided to play golf instead of soccer and now loves it. He is much better than I am and will play golf at an NAIA college this fall.  This finally got me back on the course over the last 3 years and he is my main playing partner for now. A younger friend of mine has 4 kids under 12 years old.  The older 2 are into golf and I end up playing with them sometimes when I play with my friend.  The younger 2 also occasionally play or at least ride along. We usually play an adult/kid scramble on Sunday nights when the course is not crowded.  It can be a lot of fun as the kids aren't too bad, but certainly not young Tigers either. Beginning this week I am playing in a Saturday night 2 man scramble league with one of the kids my partner.  I don't even know which one it is yet as I just agreed to it blindly.  I hope it is the 10 year old as he a slightly better swing than his older brother.  It will be interesting to see how that works out. I sometimes wish I had my kids on the course like my friend does.
    • The paparazzi got some photos of Woods heading into a hospital or something yesterday and seen putting "significant" (in their words) weight on injured leg. Hope his recovery is progressing smoothly.
    • I started golf with professional lessons around the age of 11 and have been golfing ever since.  Most of the stories with kids involved is of me.  However, I was also a rules marshal in my home course when we have junior tournaments there so have seen some kids who have become very impressive amateurs and even one or two who have become pro's. Regarding clubs, see if they can use the same clubs provided it doesn't affect their swing.  If not, either consider getting shaft extenders or look at clubs where you can change the shaft with a tool and then replace shafts as necessary.  Not cheap, I admit, but might be necessary.  Definitely consider the younger child getting hand me down clubs from the elder child provided the specs fit.
    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
