I'll be re-posting these when a new page starts in the thread until March 31.

 

Also, when the prizes are announced, I'll be periodically posting the sponsors' banners in deference to their generosity.

 

MyGolfSpy is pleased to announce the start of its Yahoo Fantasy Golf League! The spring season starts April 1 with the Shell Houston Open and ends September 23 with the Tour Championship.

 

!!!Stay tuned March 31 for the announcement of prize categories!!!

When you sign up, you will have to sign in with your Yahoo ID (if you don't have a Yahoo ID, you will need to create one). Or if you prefer, please PM me your email address so that I may invite you to the MyGolfSpy fantasy league.

 

After you log in, you will see the link for "Join a Group." After you click on that, you will be taken to a new page where you will click on the "Select" button under "Join a Private Group."

 

At that point, you will enter the following information for Group ID and Password.:

Group ID = 15081

Password = 123456

 

After you have officially joined, click on the "Go to Team Page" link to pick your golfers. The deadline to pick your players is typically the night before (Wednesday) before the start of the tournament.

 

For those of you already part of another Yahoo Fantasy golf league, I ask that you please create a new team. This way no one has any unfair points advantage going into the Spring season.

 

Do you think you're a good guesser? Brag about it here! On a hot streak? DEFINITELY brag about it here!!! Upset that some of your players missed the cut? Feel free to moan here, too!!! :)

 

 

I'm using "Team Moecat" for admin purposes only. My team name is "Good Guessers?"

That name would have been entirely appropriate, as long as you have Phil.

An he is the only one in your foursome.

I can't figure out how to make a second team.

 

You're going to have to create a brand new Yahoo account from scratch. While this may initially seem inconvenient, it's actually a pretty quick process, and you'll have the option of forwarding email to whatever address you choose.

It's really pretty simple. They supply (yahoo) a list of players. You pick 8. 4 starters and 4 back ups. Each time you pick a player they deduct the amount of time that said player can player. Each player initially has 10 starts. They break it down into 1-A,2-B, 1-C. so thats your 4 starters. Then you have a back-up for each. There's a time deadline obviously as you can't switch players whenever you feel like. It's really pretty simple as long as you get your players in on time and pay attention of scratched players and withdrawals. I can't tell you how many times I made early picks only to get screwed! So try and stay on top of the players playing. Sometimes it may be unavoidable like last week with VJ WD like 2 minutes before his tee time LOL!

You are not stuck with the same 8 golfers, but your golfers can only be actively played for a set number of tournaments. If you're involved in another league that started in the Winter, the number is 10. I don't know if that number is the same or lower come April 1. I'll try to check later, but would be appreciative if someone else knows that info

Ok Moe, I'll admit it...I am stupid.

I followed the link, I get the page and I already have a Yahoo account.

Where in the heck on the page is the "Join A Group" link ? :)
