Question... why does Yahoo give us 8 players to choose from in Group A? half of them shouldn't even be in that group in my mind, but then they give us like 120 players to choose from for Group C.  Is there some sort of formula they use to group the players? I always look at Group A as the best players in the field and then there is the trickle down into B and C, for example Ryan Palmer and Jimmy Walker, both of whom are having a great season are in group C while Kyle Stanley is in A.  It all doesn't make sense to me so I'm just curious if anyone knows how they group them? 

 

Good luck this week with the Valero!

That is because Tiger, Rory, Phil, who actually is playing, Adam, Bubba etc, guys who you do consider A listers chose not to play this tournament.  I do not know how they divide them up but a player in group A will stay there all year.  Tournaments like the Hyundai TOC is made up of last years winners.  So that group gets divided into A, B and C.  The Majors have all the big names so they also have to be divided.  Then they have fillers for the other slots.  Patrick Reed and Kevin Sadler certainly were not "A" Listers last year, but they have played like it this year.  Just as Phil has played that way in the past, but certainly not this year so far.

 

If they moved players around in the different lists, It would be confusing.

Did anybody else lose their roster this week?  I set mine up yesterday morning and when I just went to check it this morning, I've got last weeks roster and half of them aren't even entered in this tournament...

I guess that makes some sense RoverRick.  Heres an idea, maybe they should reshuffle the guys after the first half of the season is complete.

 

Wbealsd, my roster was the same as I set it yesterday... maybe they are telling you something like your picks weren't good. ha! jk.

They sure stink now! - lol  3 of 8 not entered and 3 of the 6 left, weren't picks I'd have used this week.  Maybe I can shoot for last place this round!

I was sort of surprised also, it is a contest that will have a thread up on the board for 36 weeks out of the year.  However, forums are now second fiddle or perhaps third to FaceBook and Tweets.  But you can't google tweets.

Congrats on your non-important win, ha!  I agree there should be something on the line for all of us.  Maybe we should look into setting up a paypal account and all chip in $10 or something to make it a little more interesting but then someone has to be committed and watch over the whole season. 

 

Either way I enjoy playing because it keeps me in tune with whats going on every week with the Tour.

I guess I am done with this "Contest". 

 

Not sure "Contest" is the right word since we are not really playing for anything. 

 

I made my picks last night.  I was pretty excited because I knew my four starters were all T9 and better.  Imagine my surprise when I see that for what ever reason, Yahoo has my guys from last week still there.  Unfortunately for me, only one guy out of 8 is even playing in this tournament.  Kuchar did get me 12 points but he is going to have to play hard for me to not drop from 3rd to 10.  At this point, I will probably just drop out and allow someone else to win the prizes.  Haha.

Sad that this site din't manage to put up a few prizes for the Fantasy game.

 

Anyway .... Congratz to Chito the winner ... its kinda like Match Play ... coming in second just does not feel all that good... now I know how Jim Furyk feels like :)

 

Hopefully next Season a promoter will put up a few prizes ...

 

Regards and Thank You for the fun.

3rd overall, most wins on the season, most top 3's on the season and only lost out to Saccers by 5 points.  I can't complain about my season! 

 

I'll be back next year and wouldn't mind seeing some prizes but I just do it for fun and it keeps me up to date with the whats going on with the Tour. 

 

Congrats Chito... whoever you are. ha!

Congrats Chito!  Despite the website glitches (I also had some picks that didn't get updated from previous tournaments), I enjoyed the research and moved up quite a bit during the final segment.  Like gkatshoots69, I just do it for fun and it keeps me up to date.
