    For some reason waivers didn't process at 1:00 AM eastern. I still have a pending claim that says it'll process today at 1:00 AM which was almost 6 hours ago. I usually wake up to a bunch of emails of newly available golfers but nothing. First time it has done that this year that I know of.

    None of mine have gone through either... not sure whats going on.

    I'm pretty sure I won all but a couple of my matches but fell in the standings 🤔.  When I select the "points" option, it looks better... so I'll just look at that one 🤣.

    Only have my four second string guys in this week but, aside from Harman who has been a stud thus far, Hughes, Griffin, and Thompson need to step it up.  Or... maybe package them up for a OWGR top 10 player?

    I went 4-6 this week... not bad considering I only had 3 make the cut. But more importantly I am still only 4 games back of 1st which was what I was going into the week... although now there are more teams ahead and to make matters more difficult I am only have 2 in the field this week. Good thing its a long season although sucks that this will be the 2nd lost week for me this season (week 2 was lost due to only have 2 in the field as well)

    Ok fellas. I’m bored sitting here waiting for my Hawkeyes to take on the Illini. So let’s do some trading lol

    It pains me but my guy Rory seems to struggle whenever I own him in fantasy so I’m gonna field offers for him. Just to put it out there right off the bat, if your offer doesn’t include at least 1 guy inside the top 20 OWGR, there is no need to hit submit. This is Rory freaking McIlroy after all!  I have no specific interests in mind but won’t just give him away just to cure my boredom. 
     

    Also looking to pick up Woodland or Fowler in a smaller deal and willing to use any of my non big 4 to make a deal work

    You have me intrigued... I'll look at cooking something up that may solve the rickie and top 20 itch.

    Not sure if its just me but Fantrax site ALWAYS seems slow...

    I have had my struggles with it at times, but it is the only site that will work for a league as big as ours and has been very accommodating in the past with any issues we have had as well as worked with us to make some site improvements so I'll forgive them if they are a little slow with updates. I mean I tried to watch some of it yesterday and felt like I had watched 4 shots and 400 commercials and felt like I was getting better updates via the website then the actual coverage. This was before the went to their main coverage schedule. 
    Crazy what one day can do... still some big numbers being posted and some surprise names at the top of the leaderboard.  My new lineup is loosing a lot of matchups so far... although to be fair my traded away players haven't faired too much better.

    well when companies say they stand behind the quality of their products they should do so, otherwise its cross their fingers and hope you reach the two year mark! Really im just pissed it cracked😂

    Completely understand the frustration. When I worked in a pro shop we had someone who legit broke 2 TM drivers, they replaced the first and after said nope you're on your own now. Needless to say he was fuming.

    It sucks, truly does but still hope they get back to you with some sort of solution.

    I would like to formally apologize to all the other Finau owners since apparently the idea of joining my team really bummed him out!  +6 today wow

    Gotta love Rory +7, Finau +6, Kuchar, +4, Poston +4, Scheffler +2, and JT -1.  Kinda makes me wonder if JT didn’t get the same message my other guys did! Suck the first round then stage massive comebacks! 😂

    As soon as I saw rory and Finau posting high numbers i thought of your team. Looks like a tough day, but always time to turn it around Friday.

    Poor Rickie... Just feel bad for the guy, maybe he will be a token good luck charm on my team.

    sent an email to Ping explaining the situation and expressing my frustration that I had been declined a replacement by the local distributer and how this would affect my purchasing in the future and that it would also lead me to sharing my experience with every member of my club that would listen.

    Its been 4 days now and no response whatsoever from Ping other than the initially thanks for your email we'll get back to you auto response.

    Seems they aren't that worried about negative customer experiences outside of the US.

    As it stands i will never buy another Ping product

    Sorry that you have had that experience. Ping is known for their customer service and products. 

    Sadly it is a older release so I can understand why it may be declined. Most only replace going back one generation or cycle. Yes I do agree clubs should last longer then 4 years, even with Releases coming fast and furious year over year.

    I have had amazing experiences dealing with ping and am not sure how your email was worded to them, but sending pictures and a simple explanation may go further then telling them a version of if you don't do this i will be doing this. 

    Hopefully you hear sn answer back soon which gives a full explanation either way.

  9. Without a doubt a great benefit of having 5 copies of each player. Can send out 5 offers to different owners and depending on their roster and situation different trades will benefit different teams. For sure top end talent is a must, but depth is really important with so many events and needing to score consistent points as well as to have guys that will produce into playoffs. 
    Some teams that have slipped down a bit over the last bit can use 2 solid performers that will get consistent points over one single top end talent that may not play as often. 
    Side note for BNG if you're looking for a good laugh you can actually look through all your offered trades that have been deleted or cancelled... Didn't realize that I had sent out as many as I did.

    Not nearly as impressive as getting #7 in the world Hatton for #70 Fowler.  Still not sure how you pulled that one off!

    I managed to get Fowler back in a separate trade, so now I have my 8th spot as my drop and fill slot going into each week. Although I am same situation as you, things will die down for me now because well I am just elated with my roster top to bottom. 
    Last thing have to hope for (this goes for all teams) is that there are no significant injuries to any players which will cause anyone to miss time. Then we can truly see the best teams come out on top week to week. 
    Fingers crossed to see Koepka back soon and Wolff back in normal form.

    Great day of trades for this guy!  Turned Sungjae IM and Sam Burns into Abraham Ancer and Hedeki. Then turned Ancer and Hedeki into Tony Finau. That makes my top 4 set with Rory, JT, Finau, and Scheffler. The bad part is my trading may be done as I don’t see myself moving any of them and the other 4 guys on my team will probably change tourney to tourney. 

    That is impressive. I have sent out countless offers for Finau and none have even been countered. Now it is just a matter of making your WW Budget work. 
    I finally got Hatton to round out my team, now I can look for smaller tweaks week to week. 

    The flurry of trades continues!!

    Probably because the trade was no longer valid due to players not being available anymore or
    Because the offer was withdrawn.

    After he sent me a message i checked my pending transactions and all the trade offers i had sent out earlier today had all disappeared. Pretty sure i had 6-8 offers out that just went away. I checked waivers and didn't see any notice that players weren't available and no notification that any had been declined. Either way still got one deal done and will be working on a few others before the players.

    Sorry folks, with the wife getting vaccinated, I have not had a chance to review all of the trade offers, I will do when we get home later this afternoon

    Think that means mine will be out... and more important note there is nothing to be sorry about. Still lots of time before The Players starts.

  14. The amount of times I have put out trade offers with Molinari and panicked thinking I may have accidentally selected Morikawa is just terrifying. Please someone trade for Molinari so he is off the roster and I don't have these panic situations anymore! haha

  15. Played and used one a while back. Overall a solid system. As mentioned before a little spinny at times, but distances weren't too far off. Putting was good and the graphics were pretty decent Overall too.

    Things to take note of, reads from a certain point and Ball must be in a specific spot to be picked up, so on public systems it can be indented or sometimes difficult to have ball stay there. Like most sims i have used it doesn't like high wedge shots. Really struggled picking them up with any consistency. 

    Lots of cool courses and options, can even have a camera setup for replay feedback of your swing.

    So basically, your score weekly score x10.
    It makes sense, since each individual team on the other end is scoring individually against you and those get summed up by the end of the weekend.
    Now are the total points summed up, just the 4 top players or all of the players who finish the tournament? 

    The total points represent your score, which is your top 4 players scores totaled together. 

    Meant to look up the league average and see where it stands comparatively. 

    Even though I have used fantrax a lot I'm still figuring things out on it and how to sort through all the data that's relevant to us.

    Another solid Top 10 scoring week for the team. Went to do some sorting to see where my team stacks up against the 6 teams ahead of me fully expecting to see this and be sad about the schedule thing. Screenshot_20210307-174145.png.32d29e8542fecca9a85cea804963828f.png

     

    But I hit the wrong button to start with and immediately felt better after seeing this. Just shows how much worse it could be. LolScreenshot_20210307-174205.png.43c9254919fc3dd1392237d72d203ef4.png

    looking at it to they for some reason move the decimal point one over which is weird. Adding up my totals for the season I have 1091.85 points scored so far this reason, but they move the decimal over to make it look a heck of a lot bigger. So our difference is just under 60 points so far. Also outside of CMO and Rev they the top 10 are all within a 1 week swing of each other. 
    Seems like it will at least come close to evening out over the season and the true strongest rosters will come through. That and managing players in the top of the FedEx Cup standings could negate some of the regular season point bonus'.

  18. So many solid players on the Waiver Wire yet I can't bring myself to drop anyone. Going to be very interesting to see how the remainder of the season plays out now that we are seeing some slightly more consistent trends with players. Wish we had a stash spot so I could add someone to the lineup. Still looking to do a 2 for 1 with any of the following guys Rickie Fowler, K. Streelman, F. Molinari. Or a 2 for 2 with a player that you is dropable. 
    Pretty sure I have my "big 5" with Hovland, Morikawa, Spieth, Fitz and Fleetwood. Those guys will be hard to pry from my roster as I think they could win me this thing again. 
    Side note so happy to see Spieth playing well again, is it just me or is golf more enjoyable when he is playing better?

  19. So happy Rickie made the cut. Feel like he is going through what Spieth has been going through and outside of fantasy just want to see him be successful. Hopefully with these last two events making the cut can be a stepping stone to a stronger season. Although tough to see him making the masters.
