It's top 8 actually. We've gotta do a manual bracket. Here's the original post:

 

Still want to be top 6 😉

Dang that's gotta be the third time this year for you. You know that's a setting that can be changed right? Just follow the steps and hakuna matata

I've been doing it late at night on my laptop generally and just forget to hit the save button.

 

One thing in particular don't like about Fantrax is that to confirm lineup changes or add drops, you have to hit the save button on the bottom right hand side. It's not very large and won't draw your attention to it if you aren't paying great attention. That's a suggestion I'll make today in the Fantrax Focus group now that I think about it. The save/ confirm button should pop up in the center of the screen in bold writing. Not on the bottom left in similar script while nothing else on the page changes. 

 

 

Edit: To clarify, I don't have a problem with the app or mobile version. Do those changes apply to the desktop as well?

I'm trying and trying but it doesn't look like there will be much budge allowing points for WD players. All I'm asking them for is to put the control in the commissioner's hands. I see both sides of this debate so I can live with it going either way.

The tough part for us is we're halfway through the season. That could change a lot of results if we adopt the change. Seems like the ship has sailed on this topic for 2019. Maybe 2020. 

 

On another note, this focus group is bringing out a lot of good changes. Some small stuff they've already implemented and some really big stuff for the future that we can benefit from for football. Most notably: a native app will be released to iOS and Android in the near future. I'm just thrilled that they're hearing and implementing changes. Nobody is going to be perfect, but the ability and willingness to accommodate your users is a characteristic that's hard to find.

Very cool that they are soliciting feedback from their users and implementing some of the suggestions...can't ask for much better than that.

If I recall for football the draft was a bit of a disaster....were they able to figure that out?

So they say. The football draft was a complete disaster, the golf draft was slightly better but still really bad. We must be the biggest league they have.

They claim they've sorted the issues but I've got a few ideas on how we can protect ourselves from any other draft mishaps.  We'll get into that when football season is on us.

Oh wait... That’s backwards

Daniel: Hey Kevin, do you think we should putt like a 12 handicap today?

Kevin: Why the heck would we do that?

Daniel: I don't know, it might be nice to show the weekend hackers that we can play poorly too. 

Kevin: Sounds like it would do a lot of good for the mentality of recreational players, let's do it!

 

Me as a fantasy owner: Grrr, could you putt any worse?!?

Another week in the books and we're on to the second major. Will be interesting to see if *League Average* continues as a formidable opponent. The Digest matchups are set and @Berg Ryman will handle Truth as usual. 

Looks like there will be tough lineup decisions across the league. Most of the teams I've looked at had well more than 4 players eligible.

 

Just curious, do you guys ever pick your own players in #SpyStaffSlam? I'm trying to hedge my bets by picking guys not on my team.

Yeah, I'm deciding between Wise and Furyk for my last spot. 🤔🤔🤔

Better choose Furyk. You have a matchup against me and since I traded him to you he will probably go off and win!

Hmm, you make a compelling case... I've got a few days to think about it.

      Not only is Brooks right, but I think it's only a matter of time before someone finally gets DeChambeau to pick up the pace and knock off the intentionally gamesmanship that he displays against his playing partners, by intentionally waiting to start his conversation with his caddie about whatever it is they talk about, until after the other guys have finished hitting.  I mean, if you want to talk about air density and a thousand other things no one ever thinks about, fine, but all I think anyone is asking here is that you abide by the pace of play guidelines that the Tour has in place.  Eventually the Tour has to buckle to the pressure if enough outside influences keep this topic as alive and well as it has been for some time now.  I'm just surprised we have such a blatant horrible penalty on a non-issue with Haotong Li that gave him no advantage whatsoever, when pace of play actually does affect the other golfers on the course, not only in your group, but also behind you, as they wait on every shot because you are too busy crunching numbers on things no one besides you has a clue about or could care less about.

      How about it Spies? Anyone going to be watching (after football of course...)? This is one of my favorite tournaments since it reminds me of our two trips to vacation on Oahu including just last year the week after this same event. Love Hawaii and dream daily of visiting there more in the future. Ahhhh, the sun, the surf, the drinks....sigh...
      I know we have a few spies who live there (@yungkory for one), and @SteddyGolf used to be stationed there also. Curious if anyone has ever gone to watch or even are planning to attend this year. If so, please share some pics, videos and anything related.
      Also, please share your picks and anything related to this tourney here. Me? I going with Bryson. He just looks to be in some sort of weird zone lately. Second for me is JT.
      MAHALO!

      I'm no math whiz but that equation looks wonky and until roughly 3:00 PM EST, Sunday 8/26/18 the answer was actually "10".
       
      But after grinding out a final round (-2) 69 at The Northern Trust, Bryson Dechambeau turned it up to "Eleven" and joined the following list of professional golfers that have won 3 or more PGA Tour events before their 25th birthday over the past 30 years: Phil, Tiger, A. Scott, Sergio, A.K., Rory, Spieth, JT, Hideki, P. Reed.
       
      Of the 11 names currently occupying this list, only 3 have yet to claim a major title: A.K. - this mystery deserves further study; Hideki - it's only a matter of time; Dechambeau - the subject of this thread...
       
      Alright, I've thrown enough historical numbers at you. Let's focus the rest of this discussion on the "Mad Scientist". Love him or hate him (I personally fall somewhere in the middle), this man is playing a different game than the rest of the tour; and quirky as it may be, the stats are getting harder to ignore.
       
      FedEx Cup Rank: 1
      OWGR: 11 (how serendipitous)
      2018 Cuts - PGA Tour : 19/23 (technically adjusted for injury related WDs 21/23)
      Total Strokes Gained: 5th
       
      B.A.D. has been making history since his college tenure (5th player to hold both NCAA Championship and U.S. Amateur in the same year - Nicklaus, Woods, Phil, R. Moore) and upon turning Pro in 2016, seems hell bent on elevating his game to equally rarefied professional ranks.
       
      But how is he really getting it done? This question is the heart of the matter and what I find so intriguing. During interviews he exhibits a supreme (to the point of annoyance) confidence but just last month cameras captured the driving range meltdown reminiscent of a weekend hacker. The foundation of his game champions accuracy over length but coming down the stretch we have seen the swing science go awry with some shots that are absolutely off the map. It's now clear that the protractor wasn't his sole trump card.
       
      So let's suss it out Spies...

      Just wanted to share a ~1 hour interview with PGA Tour winner and Impact Zone Golf founder Bobby Clampett.  Interview covers his playing days, what he learned as a CBS announcer, then his comments on some current swings and his passion for instruction and the golf swing

      Hey guys just wanted to share a new golf podcast.  The first episode is a round table type discussion after the Sentry TOC.  Discussion covers a number of players, the tournament, 2018 thoughts and more.  That episode is explicit/NSFW
       
      https://soundcloud.com/user-560168764/sub-70-episode-1
       
      The second episode is a ~60 minute interview with Mark Calcavecchia.  It's a great conversation from a 13 time PGA Tour winner, Open Champ and Ryder Cup champ..  You can find that episode below
