I dont understand the scoring.  Had Justin Thomas with a -6 in Round 2 and only 3 players better than him and he scored 14.

 

Round 3 Justin scored -5 which was the 3rd best score in the entire round and scored 10 points.  How is that?

 

 Update

Looking at the scoring details, I see how it works now.   A player could have the second best score but not score 18 in the round. Here are the scoring details from Yahoo.

 

Scoring Details Done

A player can receive a maximum of 20 fantasy points in each round of a tournament. The player with the lowest real-life score in a round receives 20 points. Other players receive two fewer points for every stroke they finish behind the leader - i.e. a player one stroke back for the round receives 18 points, a player two strokes back gets 16. Players 10 or more strokes back receive zero points.

You receive the total points earned by all active players on your team in each round provided that they have not already been active in 10 tournaments (see Maximum Starts for more information).

Bonus points are awarded for players placing in the top three at each tournament. First place players earn 20 bonus points, second place 10 and third place 5. To earn bonus points for your team, a player must be active for at least one round of the tournament.

If a tournament round is officially canceled, no team will receive any points for that round. All other scoring rules stay the same. If a round is delayed or postponed, no points will be awarded until it is completed.

Scores and stats will be updated within a few hours after the completion of each round.

Thanks for that!! I had been completely baffled by the scoring still looking at it for the actual standings each day. I had not been able to find anything on the Yahoo mobile site.

 

Appreciate it!!

Why did this week's points get thrown out? I had one of the better scores and would have jumped into the top 10?

Lowest week gets tossed. Since we only have 2 weeks in, only 1 week will count right now.

It will, If you have any lower scores then week 2 will get used.  It's nice to have that mulligan!

Someone wanna explain to me why Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama are in the b players? Lol. And to all the fellas smarter then me who picked Thomas this week great pick!!!

The main reason is that if all the top players were in the A group then there would be tournaments without any A players to choose from. There are already tournaments each year where the A field is very thin with the placement they use now.

Ugh. I swear I clicked on Oosthuizen and not Smiley!!!! I thought I double-checked to make sure I had it loaded correctly... I guess not. Missed out on 8 points already.

Did the same thing, took out Leishman for DJ. Terrible week, 3/8 made the cut and then forgot to change my starters for round 3. Loving that Mulligan rule now :)
