Here we go folks! It's that time of year again....Christmas? Nope, time to sign up for the Sandtrap 2017 Fantasy Golf League. This is our ninth year, and as a group, we are one of the most competitive in the Yahoo league. What you need to know for sign in:

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

Create a team, and then go to join a league. It will ask for the following information:

Group ID:          1290

Name:               The Sandtrap

Password:        bunker

There is a limit to 50 players. Good luck to all. @Club Rat @Warren Zevon @DaveP043 @Wally Fairway @Shindig @SavvySwede  @RandallT @Avalanche @pumaAttack @the fish  @tigerrag  @Toffeelover @coachjimsc @kpaulhus @J M Brown @ev780 

Let's get this going....tag anyone else who may be interested. 

For those new to the format, here are the logistics, as ripped off from @sjduffers from last year's thread:

You pick a new team each week: 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.

Some other things to note: you get a maximum 10 starts for any player for the year, and the A, B, and C groups are not always by world ranking....example, I believe Rory was in the B Group last year. 

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. When you sign up, you can choose to get reminder emails one or two days prior to set your roster...I'd recommend this....forgetting to set your roster, and burning a start on a guy not playing is the worst!

Just looking at the Groupings this year, and to my point earlier, Groups not based solely on World Rankings. Speith is in the B group along with Matsuyama and Rose, and Sergio and Koepka are in the C group, while Colt Nost is in the A group along with Kyle Riefers and Smylie Kaufman. One of the things that has to be considered with strategy is managing starts with the 10 start limit per player.

I bet Alex Noren doesnt sneak up on anybody this year, OOPS.   Kidding, Dude did play great last year. Bet he has a larger state side schedule this year.

I'll give it a shot.  

If I read everything correctly you have to set your line up before each round correct?  If that's the case are you only allowed to use a player for 10 tournaments or for 10 rounds?
