Who is up for some Fantasy Golf? The 2020-21 season already starts this Thursday with the Safeway Open. Many of The Sand Trap members have been partaking in Fantasy Golf for over a decade no

Seems like such an easy game 🤪 Never underestimate the effect of beginners luck.

Safeway Open is now available, so you can pick your players (it is usually right around noon - Eastern)

Was without network on Friday/Saturday so was unable to change Koepka (missed cut) with Harris English (-8 and 80 points on Saturday) between round 2 and 3.  

Pfffff!

Dumb move to swap out Rory for the final day.  Did anyone have Phil on their rosters?

I don't think anyone did, otherwise they would have WON !!!
And beat me for high points this week...  

I didn't check all rosters for bench players, but no one had him as a starter ...

WTF, I read Rory did not play in the Pro Am but was supposed to play through the weekend?
Glad I at least benched him before todays round but it would really suck if he drops and I'll be out a player for the event ... 😡

I need something special to catch Bunker Jon in the last tourney of the segment. Going for a long shot/wildcard. Let's just hope he delivers. Good luck all!

Ah Sure, Now DJ decides to up his game.
The last two starts I had him, he couldn't even make the damn cut and cost me dearly.
So, taking another chance, I enter him for the first round on the bench and start IM....

Typical of a shitty selections I have made this season ...  😡

I usually have that luck with Finau, never plays well when I pick him.  I did have DJ this time though.

Finau was money in the bank two segments ago. 

DJ is on the bench for my roster today.🙄

Still learning I guess. I didn't know that you don't get the fedex-bonuses for invited players, like Higgo. Got the longshot winner, but no bonus, kind of an anticlimax.... 

Congratulations to Bunker Jon for taking down the segment.   👏

Here is another thing to pay attention to (and it happens on several events each season)

Quote

REMEMBER: The U.S. Open is a scoring-level points event. No shot-level points will be awarded.

This means that the US Open won't get you driving, putting, or any other shot-level bonus's, Meaning fewer points to be had. So if you are picking someone because you think they'll score well with driving scores a bonus, or you take Spieth to get a few of those 5 point hole outs from 100 yards or greater, then you are wasting that pick.

But also, this is the first event of the last segment, so everyone is available for you to pick.

    • Mowing. Picking up all the balls from the edges of the range where the picker can't easily get to everything. Spraying/planting/repairs to the netting, etc.
    • I’m hoping someone here can answer some questions about “driving range maintenance.”   I went to a local public course today, hoping to get in some practice on the driving range; the sign says, “Driving range closes at 3:00 for weekly maintenance.”   Okay, we have daylight here until about 8:30, so aside from wanna-be range rats, there’s still plenty of golfers who haven’t even started their rounds at 3:00, so this means no range practice for them.  And I get that the course management wants to give employees a break, and have all carts returned by a certain time, so I don’t expect employees to be present until dark.  But even if all employees are gone, including those in the pro shop, many of us pay for key fobs that enable us to get range balls on our own, so employees aren’t needed.  Finally, in terms of maintenance, the driving range has mats, so if the grass is getting chewed up, I assume they could just limit players to the mats and give the grass a few days to recover.  So, if that’s the case, what sort of “maintenance” would be needed? And why would it take 3+ hours? Does any of this make sense to anyone? [ Aside from doing the weekly maintenance on a Sunday, when it’s likely to be crowded; why not close the driving range for a few hours in the middle of the day on Monday?]
    • Virtually nobody does. Not the eight of us on the trip, not anyone I've seen who writes about golf courses or architecture or anything like that. Yes, LLB just re-opened in June 2020, but it's not going to be rated over Lawsonia in two years or ten years, I would wager. I am not sure you understand what "target golf" is. The Old Course at St. Andrews is not target golf because you can play the ball along all sorts of lines and distances. Firmer golf courses tend to offer less "target golf" experiences than softer ones because a ball can roll a bunch of ways to get to the same final point, but among softer golf courses (LL and LLB both qualify), courses that allow for different lines and distances and shots off the tee qualify. Into greens, virtually all soft courses are "target" courses (and basically, all courses not built on sand tend to be "soft" courses), because the goal is to hit the green. It's not "target golf" to say "missing the green isn't encouraged" because that's discouraged everywhere. Miss the green at Pinehurst and you're often boned. Miss the green at St. Andrews and you're often boned. You have options on how to recover, but the goal is still to hit the green in regulation. Lac la Belle is about as "target" golf as golf gets. You're asked to hit it to a pretty specific spot in the fairway, and then, yes, to hit the green… like every golf course ever. LLB isn't exactly firm, so you're not even given a bunch of different ways to get the ball onto the green. They're all flying to the green and stopping pretty quickly. The shape is almost irrelevant when you're talking about hitting a green. Again, that's not really what "target golf" is. All you're saying is that LLB is "easier" or "less punishing for a missed GIR." A valid comparison, but not "target golf" (or more or less so). Well, they have good GPS in the carts… 😛   I think that's playing quite heavily in your view of them.
    • I get that - but a week a go the guy is 3 putting literally  half the time and 3 putting everything over 15 feet. I think the relative weakness is self evident. When he sorts out his putting he'll likely shoot in the 70s, but at the moment I don't think he should be shooting 73. That's all I'm saying. I understand that you're saying that if you can do X, you should be able to do Y. That's fair enough. But right now, Y, is holding him back big time. He needs to work on that aspect, not be expecting to play close to par. That may come.  Hopefully it will!
