And so we see the weakness of the Yahoo! sports platform again this week with rounds being finished the day after they started and not being allowed to make changes.  I don't mind so much between the first and second rounds, it's the second and third where it aggravates me when you have to guess whether guys will make the cut.  So far looks like only J.T. isn't making the cut on my team.

 

On another note, about a month ago I liked J.T. as a group B pick for the Masters.  The way he is playing lately I don't think I will be taking him anymore.

Mine was self inflicted. I didn't change my lineup from the week before and all I had was Kuchar and Stenson since JT missed the cut.

I'm still playing to finish out the season however I can only enter my players prior to the tournament start.   Once it starts for some reason,,,, I can not move my bench players that are playing good over to the other side.  :o(  I try to do it the night before the next round and still no luck.  :angry:

 

 

edit:   I researched Yahoo about moving players off the bench to active player side and this was the response:

 

 

To change your active foursome, click and drag the golfer from "My Foursome" to "My Bench" or vice versa.

 

Your active foursome can be changed up to 5 minutes before the start of each round.

 

 

edit #2 :    I went back and tried to drag one of my players off the bench to the active side and it worked however once the tournament starts, it appears to be locked down for the remainder of the four day run.....

Are you trying to make the changes during the tournament on a computer or mobile device?  If you are on a mobile device, use the chrome browser and you will have check boxes that you check or uncheck to move them.  If you are on a computer and not using the chrome browser, try switching to chrome and see if it works.

On a computer you will still need to swipe to move them but it works fine for me with Chrome.  Hope it helps!

After 10 weeks, I am starting to understand how the game works.   Not that I will do any better,  but I better understand the reason to swap players.

I had Hadwin (Luckily) also had DeLaet and thankfully swapped him for Stenson on Sunday. I'm not sure if I should take Stenson this week or not. WD's two weeks ago and didn't exactly play good on the weekend at the Valspar, but he finished top 3 the last 2 years at the API. Decisions decisions

Forgot to change my line up for this week, luckily I ended up with guys making the cut and not doing to bad but will give up my challenge for the lead of group 4.

Just noticed there isn't anything for the Match play next week??

I'll be filling out brackets in all the other platforms, is my gollf spy doing anything for the Match play??

...season long fantasy golf is interesting.  It seems that after the first couple of weeks, unless something monumental happens you kind of stay in the same spot.  It's going to be hard to move up or down significantly since the teams above you are probably choosing similar players.  Maybe it will change as the season ends or if some of the leaders forget to set their lineup.

Later in the season there are more chances to move because of the "10" rule, only being able to use a player 10 times.   It gets to the later part of the season and some of the top players have been used up.....

Shhhhhhhhh Bjorns Boys ................. that's what some of us are counting on ... the problem is top 10 guys do change throughout the year ... so its still a crap shoot to keep which guys that will be there for the Fed Ex on your roster ... it ain't easy :))
