I just want to add a thanks to the league admins who are doing their best to make everyone happy. While we all want to win and are all pretty competitive , remember this league is primarily for fun.

No matter what is decided, I will
adapt and try to get the most wins i can each week.

Agreed, and I hope I'm not rubbing anyone the wrong way. I am content with whatever is chosen and definitely understand why people would want to skip this week. It just sucks that my team could look very different and possibly better had I not been planning on picking up major points this week.

Key Links: State-Of-The-League FANTASY GOLF FOR DUMMIES With the Super Bowl set in our Fantasy Football league, let's go ahead and start taking interest for the Fantasy Gol

2021 FANTASY DRAFT POST OF DREAMS THE MGS FANTASY GOLF DRAFT IS SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 @ 8 p.m. EST, 7 Central, 6 Mountain, 5 Pacific... for the rest of y'all, I got nothing.  

OK everybody we're locked. Welcome to the 2021 MGS Fantasy Football League. This is a lengthy message to kick off the season but it's very important so please read it in its entirety. Here's a br

I’ll throw my .01 cents in.  
 

I’m in the camp of leaving as is and playing the Corales event.  It has been know for a while that this was the event as it has been for the last few years. Part of the strategy of fantasy is managing your team through weeks like this.  We have already taken so much strategy out of the season by not choosing who to start as well as only playing 10 matchups vs playing everybody.  I completely understand why somebody may not want to drop a player just to have somebody in the field but that is part of Fantasy Golf!  
 

To add to this, the field wasn’t exactly strong last week either and may not be for the Valero Texas Open either.  What about an event that the top players decide to skip to play overseas around The Open?  
 

I will adapt either way but I just don’t see how and where you draw the line on what event should constitute a bye week.

Keep it real all... it's just a game for fun.  The "golden ticket", forum badge, and bragging rights are inconsequential. I'm stoked to see how far up the ladder I get with no players playing this week 😂.

While I understand your point, this is literally the only event of the year where we are having to play the weaker of two PGA tour fields. The other scenarios you've thrown out there are for other tours or for events where players choose not to play due to their own scheduling issues, making them much different situations.
The ONLY reason we've had to play this event in the past is because Fantrax can't score the WGC. This year, we have to ability to skip it for the first time. Would I rather play the WGC than skip a week? Sure I would, but that option isn't available to us currently. Fantrax's system is also the only reason that we don't have the ability to have matchups vs everyone each week. Hopefully both are things that change in the future.

 

I'm not sure who all was around for the MGS Yahoo fantasy golf leagues back in the day, but we had the same issues with Yahoo not scoring the WGC then as well. We always skipped that week as opposed to playing the opposite field event. It was the only time of the year that the scoring format limited us to playing the secondary event.

 

Edit: Scratch that, we can't play Zurich either. Again because of format issues, but there is no secondary event that week.

Driver- Tmag 2017 M2 tour issue 8.5* actual loft 7.8* w/ Diamana Ahina 80X 44"

I completely understand the reason for wanting to skip it and this is for fun after all. That said this may be the week that a bubble team with a slightly weaker team 1-8 but able to field 4 or more guys goes 10-0. That may be the difference needed to get them into the playoffs.

 We aren’t talking about some unforeseen circumstance that is causing an issue, this was known from day 1. I just think we are too late into it to change as some have pointed out making or not making moves/trades because of this week. 
 

While not specifically because of this week but others as well, it is why I have traded my way to a big 4 and the ability to add drop the other 4. That way I always field a full 4 man team to start.

Bingo. Myself and others who have planned accordingly for this event are being punished. It was a good chance to move up a few spots. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't copying you in trying to get to a big 4 or 5 so I could always have at least 3 going. It would've been big 4 if not for the trade I've been mentioning. And now he's already traded that player off so it can't be fixed. I know the league is just for fun but there's a really cool prize on the line too, haha. Unless we do the right thing and keep it, it looks like the vote is overwhelmingly against us. See y'all next week!

Do we have a definitive answer?

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

My Fantrax shows the poll has closed.

 

I am good either way but honestly I was unaware that this was occurring this week. It did catch me off guard when I saw it last night.  I figured it would be the WGC event similar to how we didn't use the Bahamas tourney as an alternate field event.

Personally I've been looking forward to this event because I can put a few guys out there to play and hopefully gain some ground on people ahead of me. Maybe I'll go 0-10 but I don't think we can ethically change the schedule last minute. I feel like it should have been voted on a couple weeks ago.

 

I declined a trade because I was looking ahead to this week and before some of my guys moved up and got invited to match play they likely would have been playing in this. My roster was affected prior to dropping people. I knew I had Kirk and Harman that would possibly be in this week's alternate tournament and declined a trade before giving it a chance because of it. Fortunately and unfortunately, they moved up the rankings due to their good play as of late and are in the field at the WGC.

We can do whatever the league wants but my opinion is this should have been discussed before the week of.

Same here.   I made some trades and gave away guys I would have kept just to get a few players in the tournament so I wouldn't have another 9 or 10 loss week.  This decision could have been made much sooner but I'll support whatever the league wants to do.    

By the way,  is anyone else having trouble with the survey?  Seems like it closed at 4pm EDT.

It is clear I was in the minority from the voting and I’m am in no way butt hurt(lol) or upset that this week is a bye but I would like to point out the poll closed at 3:00 CDT according to fantrax mobile.(It wouldn’t have mattered anyways) Ok I promise I’m done being a tard!  I would like to reiterate what others have said and thank the commissioners for putting up with crap from guys like me!
