Each Fantasy Owner picks a golfer for the current weekend's PGA tournament(s).
For the Majors, each owner makes two picks.
There is a tournament each weekend for 44 weeks ending with The Tour Championship (and the Southern Farm Bureau Classic.) There will be 2 tournaments on 5 weekends. With the two Major picks, the total number of picks becomes 53.
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 must be given to Bud by midnight (central time) preceding the first day of that weekend's tourney (usually Thursday).
You can e-mail your pick to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the web-based e-mail sender by clicking on the E-Mail Pick link or you can leave a voice-mail message on my work phone (contact me for that phone number.) Web-based e-mail requires a budmans.com account with your valid name and e-mail set. That can be created from the budmans.com home page or by clicking here.
The season starts Thursday, January 3rd, so the first pick is due by Midnight, Wednesday night, January 2nd.
Contingent picks are not permitted.
No late entries will be allowed.
Tentative future picks can be supplied and changed. No pick can be changed after Midnight preceding the day the tournament starts.
Payoffs are made at the rate of $1 by every other owner for each $200,000 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.
Prepayment may be required for new owners.
Final amounts will be rounded off to the nearest dollar.
Losers payments are expected promptly (early November) so that winners can be paid and settlement concluded.
