Don't know if it is a bad omen or not to be high points again in the first week of the segment.
Didn't work out so well in the Winter segment, kind of like making a birdie on the first hole always seems to lead to disaster.....

I just checked, and my only player playing right now was +3 after 2 holes. Ouch. Fortunately, he was at least on my bench (Bowditch). But not an auspicious start for my team!

Congrats @Club Rat for the hot start in Spring.  My spring started like my winter too, with a somewhat dud start. Time to start crawling back into contention again, but after a few weeks of bad picks, it gets tough to keep the faith!

This may be the first time I've had points from golfers scoring three and four over par.

Danny Willett might be one of my luckiest picks evar!

btw, I changed my TST username from Volkey to Avalanche.  As in "avalanche of strokes"—a quote from Tin Cup.

Hello all!

I just signed up and was wondering if there was a mobile app for this.  I downloaded yahoo's fantasy app and don't see the golf anywhere.  Thanks!

I tried the same thing to no avail.  The mobile version of the website isn't too bad to navigate, however, especially during the tournament if you are just looking to swap players in and out of your bench.

Ok, thanks for sharing.  Wonder why they don't have golf in their app.

Woke up early morning yesterday about an hour before the roster deadline.  I got to thinking about Bryson DeChambeau.  Didn't have him on my roster.  So I made a last minute adjustment and dumped my "C" starter Brandon Steele, and inserted DeChambeau.  After day 1 Steele is in 1st at -8.  DeChambeau is at +2, below the projected cut line.   I am a stupid.  :-P

With the rounds being delayed, I missed the deadline to switch out Bryson for Kuchar.  Round 3 is gonna be rough a man down...

    • The 80 I shot a few months ago has been knocked off my card, and my handicap currently sits at 16.3. However, my round from today (score post in a little bit) knocked the next-lowest round, 83, off as well, so it will probably skyrocket when I get my update tomorrow. Stay tuned.
    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
