2015 Fantasy Golf League

Postby jfurr » Mon Dec 29, 2014 8:51 pm

Guys,

I have started a Fantasy Golf league on yahoo and I invite you all to participate.

If you haven't done this, you basically create a team and compete against the other guys in our league by choosing players each week for the pro tournaments. It's fun, and makes watching the events on the weekends more interesting. It's free, but you need a yahoo ID to use the service.

Contact me by Private Message and I will send you the group ID and password. Trying to keep it just among you guys I know rather than wide open.

We can use this thread for Q&A, congratulations, and smack talking.

Notes:
  • Each week, pick 8 players for your roster, and put 4 in play and 4 on the bench. You can shuffle players back and forth as you deem necessary as the events of the weekend unfold.
  • Your players must be setup before play starts on the first round of the tournament or you are stuck
  • Points awarded for each day's performance, plus bonus for high ranking final results
  • Play is Seasonal, and each season your lowest weekend score is dropped (the mulligan rule)

I have occasionally forgotten to set my team up in the past, but there is a built-in reminder available (1 or 2 days ahead) when you sign up: it was defaulted to 1 day when I joined a few moments ago, so even if you haven't done anything, you'll get a reminder (via email) a day before.
I'm gonna go low this time...

That was from my first swing at my first NJSGA outing (if you're in NJ, come play in 2015..they're fun!). We started on #10 and I got a funny look from one of the guys as I pulled 3w on a 353yd par 4. I've started to hit less than driver on anything shorter than 360-370 after it let me down in the club championship and a) I feel like I'm cheating when I hit Dr-PW/GW; b) I'm perfectly comfortable hitting anything up to my 6i for an approach shot.

Tl;Dr - I look good in purple, but fat in that picture; come play NJSGA events in 2015; and you don't always have to hit driver on shorter par 4s

The reminder has never stopped me from putting it off until "later that night" and missing the deadline. :roll:

Also --- there are three "lists" A-B-C... your foursome is one A player, two B's and one C - plus a bench of the same. Truth is with golf anything can happen so a C player might be in the top 10, you never know! It helps to pay attention to the player reports (injuries/etc) and also factor in the traveling as it is not uncommon for you to be planning to start a certain golfer but then they decide last minute not to go, and you have wasted an entry....

** To shuffle your players between bench and active, click-hold on the blue bar beside their name, and drag across to bench/active slot. **

Important, apologies I think I failed to mention this before--- you can only start a player (on active foursome) 10 times ... so choose wisely.

Well, looks like it is time to start making the final selections. I may have to drop Bae ??? (the young Korean golfer). I understand he may be going into the Korean Army for his national service.

JPJ -- c'mon and sign up, it's easy. It's basically a guessing game but makes watching the events more fun.

Though an example of strategy is like BKeuhn and I mentioned above kind of paying attention to the news for players dropping out before the start etc.

Hmmm, except that the UK is practically a desert when it comes to golf on TV. I exaggerate a little, but I don't subscribe to channels carrying golf (although I did buy a pass for the Ryder Cup...a well spent £10!)

Welcome new players. JPJ had a question about the number of starts.

Each golfer can only be used 10 times in the year. So you must conserve.

NOTE: A player is only "used" if you put them into the active foursome for a day. If they sit on your bench as backup it doesn't count. Only if you "Start" them.

ouch the 'Skanks might've forgot to check the lineup before start... looks like BK and SR have the hole shot with Sang-Moon... but anything can happen come the close of the final round!
