Missed out on joining as I never really read forums. I didn't realize you guys ran a Yahoo league. I've run my own Yahoo league for over 15 years now. Never really fell in love with any of the other formats offered, especially that awful Shot Link format the PGA is using for theirs.

 

I remember a few years back when the Yahoo game was the official fantasy game of the PGA tour, now I think it's a matter of time until Yahoo stops supporting it (especially given their sale to Verizon). That being said, there has to be someone in the MGS family with the know how to set up a format similar to the Yahoo one. It might be a good revenue generator for the website as you could allow people to create private groups of their own for a couple of bucks.

 

If anyone is interested in setting it up I have done some excel training and have a spreadsheet that ranks and automatically assigns points based on where a player finishes. I use it as I run my clubs men's league and we have a points system to determine our champion and to qualify us for our annual Ryder Cup style matches against a neighbouring club. I can send you an explanation as to how the formulas work along with the formulas, or I can just set it up. I think having almost a year to get it set up is enough time.

 

I look forward to joining your league next season (as long as Yahoo still supports it).

Hey if any of the groups are not full you should join.  Weekly winners and segment winners can get prizes.  So there is more than just the overall winner that gets a prize.

I'm definitely going to be competing for last place all season.

Thanks!  I joined group 6.  Current season points would have me in 4th in that group, hopefully I can step it up for the summer segment.

I honestly think this week should not count.   Yahoo screwed up alot of people

At least we are all in the same boat though.  And we do already drop the single lowest weekly score for each segment.

I get that but with a bench there are lots of points that some lost and some did get because of Yahoo.   Very disappointed in them for this.

I know you can't change players after the round starts but why weren't we able to change them at all??

Yahoo hasn't been supporting their fantasy golf for at least 3 years. I prefer the format, but the lack of management is an issue.

I completely agree. I searched high and low for a better option, but they really do have the best/easiest format.

I feel kind of bad joining late and then winning my group for the week. Not super bad, just a little bit. Like making par on an easy hole when all your buddies make bogey.

I gave up trying to make adjustments. It was a sad couple of days.

I hear ya there. I picked the winner and still had a horrible week because the rest of my lineup was garbage. The bench balled out of course  <_>

Btw I wasn't bashing you guys when I said "yahoo blew." I agree that it was probably our best option. It just sucks that they don't do much too keep up during the week/weekend.
