Anyone interested in starting up a Sand Trap fantasy golf league again this year? PGATOUR.COM is using the Yahoo fantasy golf again this year. First tourney is this week, so you would have until Wednesday to sign up and pick your team. I haven't set up a group yet; I'll wait to see if there is interest or if someone else has already set up a group.

I have won the Sand Trap fantasy golf two years in a row now, so I am eager for the three-peat

Happy New Year's to all.

I'll do it, though I'm happy someone else is running it. I ran one two or three years ago and while I had fun, people dropped out mid-season and that made it somewhat un-fun. Maybe I won't care so much if someone else runs it.

Ya it seems we start out with 30 or so in the group, and then by the end are down to 10 or so that stick with it for the entire season. One of the things I do to remind me is that when I set it up, I check off the email reminder and then this way I get an email Tuesday or Wednesday night reminding me to pick my foursome for the week. Maybe if everyone in the group did this we may have more success at keeping the numbers up. I'll set the group up tonight and post it here with the password to let people join.

Im in also. I play in all fantasy sports leagues. I will be in through the whole season. I always finish something i start so you dont have to worry about me not setting my line up every week. Im a commish in 2 fantasy football leagues. One on Yahoo and one on Fanball. Im also a co-commish in a Fantasy Baseball league. Let me know what the password and league I.D are when you start the league.

I have set up the group as "The Sand Trap". To join you need the group ID (6099) and the password (sandtrap). You can go to this link to sign up : http://www.pgatour.com/fantasy/

Once you have created your team, click on join group and then use the above information.

For this fantasy league, you pick a team for each week. It includes one player from the 'A' list, 2 from the 'B' list, and then one from the 'C' list. you also pick a bench, or non-starters for the week. This way, if one of your starters misses a cut or someone from the bench is doing well, you can sub them in. You can use a player a maximum of 10 times throughout the season, so this takes some planning.

Points are awarded by how well a player does per round, and then there are bonus points if any of your players finish in the top three (I'm pretty sure it is top 3, maybe 5). Here is a link to how the league is run: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/golf/rules/

There are three seasons, winter, spring and summer. There are prizes handed out for each season, and then for the overall season and weekly prizes. Here is a link to the prizes: http://golf.fantasysports.yahoo.com/golf/prizes

Good luck to all.

OK, I signed up and read through the tutorial. Just to clarify, rosters are not mutually exclusive right? I mean we could all have Ryan Moore on our roster during the same tournament right?

I wish there was some way you could see everyone's TheSandTrap profile name. Some are obvious like DaSportsGuy, RIDuffer's, iacas's and my own, but i wish i "knew" who everyone else was.

    • See, Cherry Coke Zero is a sports drink!
    • I like this guys podcasts. I don't find him pandering a specific protocol or you must do this to be healthy. He just reviews the science literature and provide informative podcasts about that based on the subject of the podcast episode.  ‎Huberman Lab: How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 on Apple Podcasts ‎Show Huberman Lab, Ep How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 - May 24, 2021 The summary... In general, eating less calories than calories burned. Calories intake is easy to calculate. Calories burned is actually not that easy to figure out.  These things will help to make sure your body is in an optimized state to burn fat. Above 1000mh of EPA fatty acid per day. Glutamine - Helps reduce sugar cravings. Can cause stomach issues discomfort when first starting out. Not really needed unless people struggle from cravings. Healthy Thyroid - So, proper Iodine Levels and proper Selenium Levels. You can get enough Selenium per day by eating 2-3 Brazil Nuts.  Proper sleep. Healthy gut microbiome - Eat fermented foods or take good probiotics. These things help burn more calories or engage the body into burning fat.  Fidgety Movement (bouncing leg, standing up often during the day). People who are subconsciously fidgety were measured burning 800-2500 more calories per day. Cold Therapy. This is similar to fidgety movement, but actually causes the body to create a chemical that engages the burning of fat. The steps are to induce a shiver for 1-3 minutes by getting into cold water (cold shower/bath). Exit the water, and shiver for 1-3 minutes, and then repeat for 2-3 more times getting in and out of the water. Do this 1-3 times a week.  High Intensity Training will burn glycogen during the exercise, but for what could be up to 24 hours after the training, the body will burn more fat.  For burning fat, working out fasted tends to be better. After 90 minutes of moderate intensity (zone 2), if you ate before exercise (1-3 hours before), you will burn far less fat from the 90 minute point onward than if you were fasted (eaten 3 hours or later from start of exercise). The body needs to deplete itself of glycogen to switch over to fat. Higher insulin levels will inhibit fat oxidation.  Coupling points 3 and 4, while fasted (at minimum 3 hours after eating), do high intensity training first then followed by low intensity training. This could be good for someone with a busy schedule. Training at high intensity for 20-30 minutes, where you are breathing hard for that amount of time, then go on with your day. If you want some extra burn of fat, then do some light to moderate cardio.  Supplements Caffeine - can enhance performance of exercise. But, only for caffeine adapted. If you are not, the caffeine will constrict your blood vessels and reduce performance. If you are caffeine adapted, then it will actually do the opposite. Up to 400mg of caffeine can help burn more fat during exercise (consume 20-30 minutes before exercise). GLP1 - Compound that is created in the body by drinking Yerba Mate tea. This compound increases fat oxidation directly. Like caffeine, can be taken before exercise to increase the amount of fat burned during exercise. Mate tea does have caffeine as well.  *Note, this is just stuff the scientific literature has shown. Consult your doctor before taking anything or doing any new protocols. 
    • Go to the automotive section of a store or Autozone, looks for “Westleys Bleach White”…. It’s a whitewall tire cleaner. Spray it on your grips, wait 30 seconds and rub it hard with a towel.  They will be like new.  I use it and it’s unbelievable 
    • Day 331: Played 18 this AM in the first group out. Driver was really squirrelly, so I went to the range after to work the feels out. I was definitely taking the club back to far out in front of me. This makes it hard to control. So I worked on the feel like I’m taking it too far inside, which isn’t the case (I know this from filming my practice). This just sets the club up properly for a good downswing. Playing again tomorrow. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ScottCurry/round/3100692  
    • Meh, the book was better. Seriously, hope no longer term problems for the guy in the video.
