I'm interested, not sure if its full yet.?

There is no limit on the number, so jum on in; we are now up to 18 in the group. Sounds like lots of guys are committed this year, so it should be a good season.

Have a good one.

i signed up. I do have a question though. If a guy isn't playing in the upcoming weeks event, will said player be on the list of golfers. I know i had trouble with that last year, I picked people who weren't playing that week

When you see the options to select players on the bottom, there is a button that says something like "Show only Entered Players." If its checked, only entered players will show up.

This is right to use this button and it shows only entered players. It is always good to check back Wednesday night though for late withdrawing players; I got burned by this a few times last year. The A, B, and C lists get set Monday morning, and if a guy pulls out of the tourney, he may show as active. PGATOUR.COM keeps track of this kind of stuff in a section called 'The Starter' for this kind of stuff.

And not to brag- okay maybe a little- but I do a fantasy league with Daniel Negreanu, Erick Lindgrin, and Paul Wasicka every year, which carries a $2,000 buy-in and I've won it two years in a row. It's a 12 team league. And I'm certainly not above free money leagues. I enjoy them as well.

that's pretty cool... man I sure do miss my weekly poker game! I pretty much bet on everything I can... not a lot, but I definatelt enjoy gambling. Reminds me of those commercials... "cheese makes everything better", just replace "cheese" with "gambling".

We have 20 guys signed up so far. If you could, please post here in the thread what your team name is in the league (unless your Sand Trap name is the same as your fantasy name like mine), and then we know who is who here at the Sand Trap.

Well c'mon now, that's not fair. You're only allowed to have three or four people on your team, not 13 or 17 or whatever the count is.

Don't I get to "use" them ten times through out the season?

My team name is Red Pine Ridgers. That is the name of my homemade "home" course. Can we not pick our team yet? I cant seem to get anything to come up for the c list players.

You are able to pick your team now. There is a tab to hit for A, B, and C list to show you the players in each. Have you tried that?

    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.
