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 39 or so straight weeks ending with The Tour Championship. There will be 2 tournaments on some weekends. With the two Major picks, the total number of picks becomes 47 or so.
The Barclays, Deutsche Bank, BMW, and Tour Championship are FedEx Cup events with progressively reduced fields due to new FedEx Cup point system. Only top 30 golfers play in Tour Championship in late September.
FedEx Cup Bonus money will NOT be used in 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 must be given to Bud before the first tee-time of the first golfer of that weekend's tourney (usually Thursday).
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).
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.)
The season starts Thursday, January 3rd, 2008.
Contingent picks based on whether a golfer plays or not are not permitted.
Contingent picks based on whether a golfer is listed for a tee time are permitted. That is, you can give me a priority list to take pick based on being listed with tee time (for when you might be on vacation).
No late entries will be allowed. Once tournament actually starts, all picks are locked in (including any no-pick).
Tentative future picks can be supplied and changed.
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 $300. 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 (end of September) so that winners can be paid and settlement concluded.
You can indicate whether you want your pick to be displayed or not when I receive it. If hidden, it will be indicated by ### otherwise it will be displayed right away.
If I see a pick is invalid (already used or golfer not playing) and it has not been requested to be hidden, I will try to let you know. But I cannot guarantee such, and I cannot do so after the deadline (of course.)
Picks known not to be playing will be indicated by parenthesis. These can be reused later (since they didn't play).
Invalid picks (previously used picks) also will be indicated by parenthesis.
