Okay folks, a new league for 2016 has been set up for The Sandtrap once again. I believe we have to be one of the hottest groups on Yahoo as a good many of us kick the "Expert Pick" guy's ass every year. Here is the info to join:

http://golf.fantasysports.yahoo.com/golf

Group ID 512

Password: sandtrap

@Club Rat, @Wally Fairway @Undr Par @Patch @sjduffers get on there and let's get er going!

First tourney is January 7th-10th.

Hmm, I may have to try this. I've never been one for fantasy sports but a golf competition from the site I could get interested in.

I'm in. Thanks @gogolfing 

@RandallT  looks like we're setup to go.

 

Thanks, John. I'll go join later today! Looking forward to it. The site isn't responding at the moment, but might be my tablet. Didn't you mention yahoo was dropping fantasy golf for 2016?  Maybe I got that wrong.

I'm in also thanks.  I skipped fantasy football for the first time in years and this sounds like a fun alternative.

So do you pick a new group of golfers for each tournament? I'm not quite sure of how this works.

It appears as though the two experts picks aren't even playing this coming week, since only winners qualify for the tournament of champions. I know for certain Victor Dubuisson did not qualify for it.

Great to see some new members on board; welcome @the fish and @LagShaft. @RandallT I was just on the Yahoo site and it is working. You guy need to watch out for @Club Rat @Undr Par and @sjduffers in the pool; they are ringers. 

Don't overlook @Crim. Hope he's joining again this year....:-)

Yes, you do: 2 in group A, 4 in group B and 2 in group C.  Then prior to each round, you must decide which 4 players (1 in A, 2 in B and 1 in C) are active for that round while the other 4 are sitting out. You get points for the distance between the lowest scorer of the day and each of your players, so if one of your players has the lowest round of the day, you get 20 points. If a player is 2 strokes behind behind the lowest scorer, you get 16 points for that player, 3 strokes behind and you get 14 points, and if you are 10 strokes behind (it happens!), you get 0.  Add it all up for the 4 active players.

Make sure to check your line-up after the cut and before the 3rd round starts or you could be with fewer (or none at all!) players in position to get any points over the weekend, as a cut player (or WD) obviously doesn't get within 10 strokes of the better round over each day of the weekend...

Also, you get bonus points for having started (any round, not just the final round) any of the top 3 players (and ties), with 20 for the winner, 10 for the runner-up and 5 for the 3-place finishers.

I don't think the list of players in the field for the first tourney is accurate yet, and the expert picks probably aren't either.  Check back after the first of the year, and don't forget to check the box that says "entered in the field" or you get the list of all PGA Tour players.

The field is usually set properly on Yahoo the Monday afternoon prior to the start of the tournament, so wait until then. Be wary of the Expert Picks on Yahoo....a good chunk of us in TST league finish better than they do. PGA Tour usually has a good summary of the field and track record of the players in the field.

Yahoo indicates that they are, but for now everyone can signup and if Yahoo does maintain the golf fantasy then we would set for another season hopefully.

Thanks. I did fantasy football for a while but it began taking up too much time, so I dropped it. It will be nice to get back into it

    • Never have, and never will pull any of this stuff on anyone I play against If I can't win, or lose, with my clubs, I have no business playing. I have had some guys say things to me, and it really helps motivate me, but I really think very poorly of guys that try that garbage. I'm much more into sportsmanship than gamesmanship. I really think it has no place in the game.
    • Honestly, I am not worried about it.  I am not scarred of COVID.  I respect everyone's opinion. I work in hospitals from the smallest to the largest one's in the country.  I deal with infectious control to EVS.  From NYC to California during this pandemic.  I know how they feel about it from an internal point of view.   I was more concerned about my safety when I crossed the border in the 1990's to work in Tijuana then going into any hospital in this country today.  I have and still go into the most dangerous parts of any city in this country and have done so since the 1990's as well as foreign countries.  Nothing catches your attention faster then staring at an M60 Machine Gun pointed directly at the van you are in. COVID is a virus, it does not scare me.  I understand other people's fear of it and respect that.  There are a lot more deadly situations I can come into contact with that a mask and washing my hands frequently will not help. You seam to be a really nice guy.  Hopefully when this calms down and it will we can meet and play golf together.  I would really enjoy that.
    • This shaft seems pretty nice.  I took a flyer on it and got the SF505 (I swing 100-105MPH).  It came in last night and I took it to the range this morning.  I saw on a couple sites people mentioning there was a learning curve and it was true.  I tried using my same swing I put on my Hzrdus green and the ball just took off to the right.   10-20 swings later I was able to figure it out and was amazed at the results.  I realized I needed to just swing smoother and slower and it worked perfectly.  Feels so weird swinging this slow and the ball going farther.  I was on the range so no comparison other that was was visible to the naked eye.  The ball had so much more pop and was flying maybe 10 yards farther.  The consistency was the craziest part as they were ropes directly where I aimed.  Taking it on the course tomorrow so curious to see how accurate on the course it is as well as if I'm hitting from new areas because of the added length.
    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
