Ok so we did this after the first event last year and I wanted to do it again since we've got lots of fresh eyes.

Scoring check. Does the points scoring balance seem appropriate? Is there anything that seems unfair or skewed or is something missing from the stats? Keep in mind, advanced stats like sandies and the like aren't yet available but I could check with Fantrax to see if it can be added. 

Changing the stats could affect outcomes from the first week like it did last year, but that's better than riding out a whole season in unbalance. Let's run this like a typical committee. If someone comes up with a suggestion that gets seconded, I'll put it to a league vote. Majority rules from there.

So, does thinking about the playoffs have you looking like this?   Well, leave it to your friendly neighborhood Ryman-Man to break it down for you! Friendly reminder, first tiebreaker

Also, as an aside, I think I've set a record for most profile tags in a single post... so I have that going for me.

Happy Birth.... day, Mr Commissioner. Happy Birthday to you! @Berg Ryman       Hope it's a great one good buddy. Happy to have your help with the league this year.

At first glance it seems pretty solid. Looks like we’ll have to wait until Monday to see the final stats though.

The only gripe I have is the missed cut losing points. We are already not getting points for 2 days.

Do we penalize players that sit a football game in the second half?

Not a bad point. Nullify points for making a cut/missing it. It'll work itself out. Unless the player completes embarrasses himself on the weekend and then it's his own fault anyway.

Which I definitely had happen last year. Sometimes missing a cut and taking the hit is better than leaving a guy for the weekend. You can take a massive hit if he stinks it up for two (normally) days.

Scoring looks good to me so far; granted I'm still getting adjusted to this format so take that with a grain of salt.

Right especially when the cut is -3 then you lose points for missing the cut. Make the cut at -3 and go +10 on the weekend is unavoidable. But if you have a good two days miss the cut why have points taken? Usually 140ish guys trying to make the weekend, that’s only a 50% chance of making it.

I see your point here. Happened to me several times, biggest one I remember is the us open.

Like US30 said just nullify both making and missing the cut points and it won’t have any change in overall score.

First time playing this year but I don't understand negative points....seems like the lowest you should go is zero...so many variables in play; injury, sickness, family issues, weather, etc. that punitive points is a bit harsh.

...this is just from the outside looking in.  I probably have little to no chance either way so I'll go with whatever the consensus is.

Options I see

1. Get rid of missed/made cut points.

2. Keep made cut points but don’t take points for missed cut.
I vote for option 2, there should be some reward for picking players that make the cut. I disagree with going negative for missed cuts.

And one more birdie for Phil to finish off the win! Honestly, wasn't thrilled about grabbing Phil (too much variability for my liking), but I can't complain now 🙂

Someone had a funny tweet about how the US Open is at Pebble this year and somehow Phil is going to find a way to not win it.

Personally I hope he does so we can all stop talking about it.

Unless I'm overlooking someone for the fourth, we could almost get a year of career Grand Slams:

  • Rory wins the Masters
  • Phil at the US Open
  • Spieth at the PGA

Is anyone a British Open away from the career Slam?

Nobody that's still playing. Floyd and Nelson both never completed the slam because of the Open. 

Spieth, Rory and Phil are the only 3 still playing that are a major short that I can think of. 

 

 

 

 

Also, I played the top scoring team and 3rd best scoring team in the league this week. Fun 😒

I'm in agreement.  You should definitely get credit for players making the cut, and missing out on two days of potential scoring for a missed cut is penalty enough.

To everyone bemoaning the lost points from missing the cut, you realize it's only -1 right? It would have no substantive effect on scores from change it from 0 to -1, so we might, but it seems a bit of an overreaction from my perspective. I mean, I guess it's a three point swing from the start of the week, but no score has been within the margin again for it to be a difference.

I totally agree! My only suggestion was to take away more points for a MC but based on the previous comments, I'd think that would get outvoted.
