TST Fantasy Golf 2018

Hello TST Fantasy Golfers, 

As many of you know, Yahoo has dropped fantasy golf for 2018.  Some digging has been done, and a replacement has been found. The PGA Fantasy golf was looked at, but it started with the Fall segment so is 25% done, and some of us play that too, so we would not start off on an equal footing. @Undr Par found one on The Golf Channel, and it starts next week with the Tournament of Champions, so we figured it would be best. 

The format is different than Yahoo in that you set a roster of 6; each player is assigned a monetary value, and you have $100, 000 to spend per week on your roster. Points are given for scoring (set amount for birdies, eagles etc) along with placing for the tournament. A full list of rules can be found here: http://static.golfchannel.com/Fantasy/2018/2018-Golf-Channel-Fantasy-Contest-Official-Rules-FINAL.pdf

To join, go to the link below:

https://www.playfantasygolf.com/league/join/rywWkYlmf

No Password is required; you do have to set up an account with the Golf Channel if you don't have one. 

I have never played this one in the past, so will be interesting to see how it goes. I also hope it is easy to join; TGC does not provide a lot of instruction on their site. We can do this one for 2018, get some feedback, and then decide for 2019 whether to keep with this one or hop over to the PGA Tour one (which has more similarities with Yahoo in terms of picking a lineup, but does have a complicated scoring system). 

Good luck to all TST Fantasy golfers. I hope you are having a good Christmas. BTW, someone on TGC has my GoGolfing tag, so I am now GoGolfingcanada in the new league; hoping it doesn't mess with my mojo! 

Hope the regulars @Club Rat @kpaulhus @Undr Par @Warren Zevon @Strat-Pack Rick @boogielicious @Wally Fairway @Carl Spackler @J M Brown @Shindig @Toffeelover @Ernest Jones can all come on board. 

Let me know how joining the League goes.

The Sand Trap Fantasy Golf 2018

Commissioner: GoGolfingCanada

"Good luck to The Sand Trap members in another season of Fantasy Golf.
Go to the account tab on your page, and the rules are given in detail."

Everyone be sure to check out the points rules as they are much different than Yahoo.

@gogolfing - Question? I'm guessing the TST league is private and will members qualify for prizes also from the Golf Channel?
Thanks for setting this up again this year ....  :beer:

@Club Rat I am assuming it is Private, but the Golf Channel does not give a lot of details. Looks like to join you either have to have the link or an email invite, but it did not ask for a Password to set the league up like Yahoo did and the PGA Tour Fantasy does. As for prizes, I do believe we would all be eligible for the weekly prizes discussed on the rules page. 

I'd also note that when you sign up, it looks like you are assigned a random user name that contains mostly numbers and a few letters. If you go to the Account tab, then Account Settings, you can edit your User Name.

I'm going to want to join and will set up later today.  Thanks for putting this together.

The description makes me miss ESPN's Best Ball league.

Yes, trust me, I did one last search for ESPN Fantasy golf just in case there was a revival....no luck. I enjoyed their Best Ball league. I guess there are just not enough fantasy golf geeks out there to support them....though we TST seems prevalent with them! 

I am looking forward to trying the salary cap nature of TGC league.

We have hit double digits in the league...don't forget to change your User Name from the random numerical one TGC provides, to one similar to your Sand Trap user name so we can keep track of things.

I'll give it a go sounds like fun, just entered, but under js4strings, jsgolfer was already taken.

Great; welcome on board. You will enjoy it. We are up to 14 members. To see who is in the league, you have to do some digging:

Hit the blue view button on the right of the league page, then click on Leaderboard and it will show who is in. 

I know Yahoo had a limit of 50, no indication from TGC if there is a limit on this one.
