Hi All, 

The 2018-19 season already starts this Thursday. Those of us who have played Fantasy Golf over the years have talked about trying out the PGA Fantasy golf, and it starts with the Fall segment. In the past, we have played ESPN, then Yahoo, and last season The Golf Channel fantasy leagues. The PGA League has a similar roster format as Yahoo, and a similar scoring format as The Golf Channel league. 

To join, you must go to https://www.pgatour.com/fantasy.html and create a Team. Once you have done this, go to the fantasy golf to the right tab, and choose the red "Fantasy Golf". Once you have done this, you can join the TST Fantasy Golf league by following these steps:

Join my league in PGA TOUR Fantasy #PGATOURfantasy Golf 

League URL: https://fantasygolf.pgatour.com/api/v6/pgaroster/og/object/leagues/id/22988

League Name: TST Fantasy Golf

The password is: thesandtrap

Description: 

PGA TOUR Fantasy allows you to show off your knowledge of the sport by picking a team of 6 PGA TOUR Professionals (4 Starters, 2 Bench). Scoring is live and exclusive using PGA TOUR Shotlink and based on player performance on the course. Play with your friends in a private group or test your skills in one of our public groups. Whether you want to play for prizes, glory or bragging rights PGA TOUR Fantasy is the only live fantasy game where the outcome of each shot matters.

Official Rules: https://fantasygolf.pgatour.com/#/roster/rules

@Club Rat @boogielicious @Wally Fairway @kpaulhus @Shindig @CarlSpackler @DaveP043 @coachjimsc@Warren Zevon @J M Brown @Antneye @mildee 

I know I have missed some of the usual suspects, so please tag those I have missed and hope we get good numbers. Of course, new TST fantasy golfers are all welcome to join.

There is an App called PGA Tour Fantasy Golf which is easy to use to set your roster etc...it is separate from the PGA Tour App.

This may be confusing guys, some other dirt bags have also created a private league using "The Sand Trap" 
The League @gogolfing has created is The SandTrap   Two words, not three. Also, Cap the S & T's

it's a different point scoring system, round by round, bonus points out the ying-yang.
Should be fun. Limit per segment of using the same player, interchangeable lineups for each round.
Use the search feature for the league.

Thanks @Club Rat, to avoid confusion, I have changed the name of our league to TST Fantasy Golf.....same password, same link as above. When you search for it in the private leagues, use TST Fantasy Golf....should be easier.

Is there a way to edit post #1 in the thread with the new League name? Can't see and edit icon for that.

I've created  a profile and whatnot, but it's telling me 'thesandtrap' isn't the correct password.

I went in and entered the league password again, thesandtrap.....try again and see if it works. Please let me know. 

Sorry for the glitches with this one....sure it will get figured out.

For the PGA Fantasy format, you can use each player a maximum of 3 times per segment, and there are 4 segments in total. The first is only 7 tournaments, then the last 3 are 11-12 tournaments. Segment one is the fall season, and then segment 2 starts with the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

We are up to nine in the league...plenty of room for more.

I'm in (I think)

Went up by one, so looks good. A bit frustrated it won't show me who the 9 are, but oh well. The way it works is as long as you get your roster set, you are good, and then if we find out a person did not get in the league, they can still be added and have their points transfer in with them.

The Site definitely has a different look and user mode than we have experienced.
Hoping since it's affiliated with Shot Link, real time scoring will be instant as opposed to the delays other sites had.

As for use, there are no "save" functions with data entry. Guessing it's a Cloud Base service which simply updates instant.

For those who experience the "I'm in (I think)" when you are creating a user profile, you will receive an email confirmation.

Also, when entering your roster each week when you visit the site, it will give you this page.

With the menu at the top right, select league and it will show any leagues you have joined.
Once the season starts, it will be interesting to review the different stats/functions with "recap - insider"

You will be happy @Club Rat, it is linked to Shot Link, and scoring is in real time. If on the site or the app, during the rounds, alerts pop up every time a new shot is updated. No need to save on this site or on the app, which is a nice function, and when you set up your profile, you can ask for alerts when one of your player missed the cut. These come up quickly, quite soon after the round is completed. I'd really encourage everyone to get the app....it is very handy.

    • North Carolina weather is really nice right now. We had a lot of wet weather in February and March. I'm tired of playing in the mud, luckily it's great conditions at the moment but the heat is starting to kick in, so it's mornings or evenings for now. 
    • Power player, you'll routinely be 30+ yards behind my drives ;)
    • I'm not sure what kind of golfer I am. I can play alone or with anyone. I can play for $ and be serious about my game or go out and just play for the fun/relaxation of it. I tend to play to the level of my competition. The better the players I play with/against, the better I play. I also have learned over the past few years that some days I'm just not going to play as well as I do on others. I guess I'm a "go with flow" golfer?
    • Irons have responded really well to the priority pieces during my range sessions over the weekend. I am hitting more balls flush and less fats/thins as percentages of my shots than I ever have. Every swing I tuck some of my right shirt sleeve under my armpit to remind me to keep my right arm/elbow low.  I have been hitting some straight pulls now, not huge pulls, still in play if I was approaching a green, but a little time working on making my club path more neutral should fix that. I am getting more used to the proper feeling on the way back, I am slowly starting to think about the right arm on the downswing, but I really want to make sure I consistently get into the right position on the backswing before focusing on the downswing.   Driver has been hit or miss. Not fully confident with it at the moment, but having the feeling of hitting more level through the ball has helped with accuracy, and I don't know this for sure, but my AoA is still probably slightly positive on those (I was already 4-6 up previously, so those "level" feeling hits are probably 1-2 up). A slightly slower feeling tempo has helped too. In reality it probably doesnt look much different on camera, but the results so far seem to be much better.    Putting has been really solid, getting more and more used to not accelerating through the stroke. Spent some time on 6 foot putts, and managed to make 22/25 6 footers including like 14 or 15 in a row.
    • I'm a temperamental hack that, starting 7 years ago at age 35, has been trying to play golf as cheaply as possible. Now I find myself in quite a rut. Each of the past three years have started in brutal fashion. I slug it out and approach bogey golf by late summer and then back to square one the next year. My current level of frustration has caused me to take my first-ever lesson a couple of weeks ago from the Assistant Pro at my home courses. The fellow told me simply that I needed to stop gripping the club so hard and get rid of the tension. There's some truth to it and something I need to work on, but I suspect my issues run a lot deeper than that.
