Each Fantasy Owner picks a golfer for the current weekend's PGA tournament(s).
For the Majors and THE PLAYERS Championship, each owner makes two picks.
There is a tournament each weekend for 37 weeks ending with The Tour Championship. There will be 2 tournaments on 3 weekends. With the five double picks , the total number of picks becomes 45.
Although the Zurich Classic of New Orleans will be played as pairs, only one pick is made and otherwise treated normally.
THE NORTHERN TRUST, Dell Technologies Champisonship, BMW, and Tour Championship are FedEx Cup events with progressively reduced fields due to the FedEx Cup point system. Only top 30 golfers play in Tour Championship in September.
FedEx Cup Bonus money will NOT be used in the league.
The amount of money that golfer earns for the tournament is added to your total yearly "money winnings".
If a golfer plays, he cannot be used again. If a golfer does not qualify or withdraws, you earn no winnings, and that golfer cannot be used again.
Only if your golfer doesn't play at all (doesn't tee off) can he be reused as a pick later.
Each week's pick should be made before the listed start time of that weekend's tourney (usually Thursday). Your pick can always be changed (re-entered) before start.
The WGC-Matchplay starts on a Wednesday. Be sure to get your pick in for this on time as all golfers who play get paid. The Labor Day weekend Dell Technologies Championship starts on a Friday.
Start time (deadline) of any/all tourneys can be displayed by clicking on your team name from the recap page.
Once the tournament starts, no pick can be changed (even if that golfer hasn't started yet). (i.e. No late changes to replace a no-show pick).
Login is needed to identify yourself for making picks, and so you can view your pending picks. Login is remembered (if you wish) to avoid repeated logining on. Any Team could have multiple Owners each which has access to their Team.
You enter your pick using the web-based picker by clicking on the Make Pick link. You can choose to hide your pick, or even show something different if you wish. Of course, everyone's picks will show properly after tourney starts.
The season starts Thursday, January 4th, 2018 (2:30pm CST).
Contingent picks based on whether a golfer plays or not are not permitted.
No late entries will be allowed. Once tournament actually starts, all picks are locked in (including any no-pick). However, I tend to be lenient to sob stories.
Tentative future picks can be supplied and changed. It is encouraged that you make picks ahead of time, because you may forget, and you can always change your pick up to start time.
Payoffs are made at the rate of $1 by every other owner for each ($10,000 * number of owners) earned by all your golfers winnings.
There will be a maximum loss limit of $200. Any losses exceeding that will be prorated from owners winning money.
Final amounts will be rounded off to the nearest dollar.
Losers payments are expected promptly (end of September) so that winners can be paid and settlement concluded. I can pay or be paid from PayPal (via email@example.com or 515-975-2284). Venmo, Square Cash, and even Facebook support electronic funds transfers too. Try them!
Picks that did not play will be indicated by parenthesis. These can be reused later.
On February, 14th, I have surgery scheduled. Results for the Genesis Open will very likely be delayed and the Honda Classic picks may not show as first choice in picker.
If for whatever reason, I am unable to continue running the league after February, the entire season shall be declared null and void.
