After seeing @Club Rats earlier post I thought I should dump some Americans from my squad, but it was locked already. 

Does this format actually show the deadlines?   I’ve been making my picks on Tuesday just to stay safe.

For the PGA Fantasy design, you can utilize every player a most extreme of 3 times for each portion, and there are 4 sections altogether. The first is just 7 competitions, at that this point, the last 3 are 11-12 competitions. Portion one is the fall season, and after that fragment 2 begins with the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

@Aces Wild here is this season's TST Fantasy thread. Good group of guys in it....we have 2 more tournaments in this first segment, and then a new segment starts with Tournament of Champions in early January. Come on board for the next 2 to get your feet wet, and then compete in the last 3 segments.

Thanks;  I just signed in; however  screen name there is ProAmNut because I am in other leagues and already familiar with the format, cheers.

BTW is that OK or do I need to use this screen name not sure how though?

Just joined the forum this week, so thanks for allowing me in to The Sand Trap, as discussed elsewhere I also signed up for this Fantasy Golf Pool and used an existing user name I have at another PGA tour Fantasy golf league under the name of :ProAmNut" . When I did this I did not realize that my score from that other league would carry over into the TST League. I tried using my screen name here which of course is Aces Wild, but it keeps telling me that name is already in use? When I looked in the rules section it says one can have three Fantasy League player names under one email, but I cannot see how you do that yet, so that I can get a different name for this TST league. So far I have not figured out how to do this and could use some help.

Also just letting everybody know that the intention was definitely not to gate crash your league with my high score from the other league, though that would be my score had I entered here at the beginning. If nothing else works I will pull out of this league and see if there is another way to enter without any carry over of scores from one league to another, and definitely rejoin in time for the 2nd segment..

Good thing we're not playing for a ton of money, we'd have to send someone to break your thumbs!  All in good fun, welcome to TST, and to the fantasy league.

I did just look at the fantasy webpage, and I think I see how to set up a different team.  If you look under your name, there's a little pull-down that says "Switch Teams".  One of the options there is "Create Team", I think that will do it.

Thank you Dave, that worked and I have created a new team called "AcesWildonTST" so now I'll have to figure out how to change the two teams around, so that the new one comes here and the other name stays in my other league. Which as long as I can do that by the new year I'll be happy..

OK, hope this has worked;  deleted ProAmNut from this league and entered again as "AcesWildonTST" ,

currently showing zero points, which is what I was hoping for from the start, plus broken thumbs can hurt.LOL.

Looking forward to the competition which is always good on and off the course. Thanks again everybody for the help and welcome.

When searching for Leagues there was another league named "The Sand Trap"
So @gogolfing changed the name of our league to TST Fantasy Golf

Yes Sir! All present and correct Sir, just kidding

You wont see me on your screen apparently until this weeks event, when I hope to be in that same spot at the top. LOL.

RSM Classic this week, only a couple of big names and a few young guns looking for fame playing, the only interesting thing is to get ones FGP picks right.

I also play on DraftKings, not one of those big buck gamblers, just the quarter or dollar pools, some times a lot more for the Million Dollar Major pools.

No big prize on there yet but find it makes my Sunday afternoon, or evening if I have PVRed it  because of a football game, so much more exciting looking for things to throw at the TV set.

Great minds must think alike....
We have identical lineups except one player.
You have Pan and I went with Kisner.
Although, our starters are different, we both have Simpson and Spaun
I went with Varner and Kisner.

    • 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.
