Full disclosure, I'm a Fantasy Golf virgin... :o It may take me awhile to get into a rhythm (i.e. remember to get my picks in)...

When I started this a couple of years ago, there was a "Rules" link that gave very clear instructions on how to play. Unfortunately, the "Rules" link on this years page is not very good and some important info is missing. I did find this page that appears to include everything you need to know. Read each bullet on this page. Then come back here and ask questions. Those of us who have played before should be able to answer most questions.

OK.....so each pro only has 10 "Starts"? If he is only used for say the 2nd round of a tournament, does that count as a "Start"?

Well, I expect to finish slightly higher than last year, but only because I did not play last year. I at least know enough to pick people that are playing. According to Yahoo, 48% of the pickers have picked Rory and Tiger to win the TOC in Hawaii and they are not even playing.:lol:

My Unofficial Fantasy Golf Rules and Strategy

 

1. Before the start of each weeks tournament, Pick 2 players from the A-List, 4 players from the B-List and 2 players from the C-List. One A player, two B players, and one C player will be starters, and the other 4 will be on the bench. Unofficial strategy: Pick the best 8 players in the tournament, and put the 4 best of those as starters.

 

2. After the end of each round, you have the opportunity to move players from your bench to replace starters. In a perfect world, all of your starters will score lower than the players on your bench. The world is seldom perfect. Unofficial strategy: Since players who shoot low in round one may tank in round two, and since players who shoot high in round one may come back low in round two, there is no strategy. Shuffle players at your own risk.

 

3. Scoring: The lowest score shot in each round earns 20 points for starters on your team who shoot the lowest score. Two strokes are deducted for each stroke higher than the lowest score. Ex. Rory shoots 64 for the lowest round of the day. You earn 20 points if he is one of your starters. Players who shoot 65 earn 18 points, 66 earns 16 points and so on down to 73 earning 2 points. Strategy: Pick players who shoot really low rounds.

 

4. After round two some players will miss the cut. Sometimes... no oftentimes, one or more of your starters will miss the cut. You have to go in before the start of Saturday's round and replace them with players on your bench or you will not earn any points for those players. Strategy: Be careful after the third round. Some players may MDF meaning they will make the cut but not play the final round. You have to move these players to the bench after round three or they won't earn any points.

 

5. Bonus points are earned if any of your players finish in the top three. 20 bonus points for 1st, 10 bonus points for 2nd, and 5 bonus points for 3rd. A player only has to start in your lineup for one round to earn bonus points. Unofficial strategy: If you have a player on your bench after round 3 who has a chance to finish in the top three and hasn't already started for any round, it may be good strategy to start them in the final round. Note that I said "may be good strategy". It is only good strategy if he comes through and earns bonus points. Otherwise you've just used a "start" for that player. (Last year I saved that start only to see my benched player get into a playoff and win.)

 

6. Over the full season, you can only start a player 10 times. If you move a player into your starting lineup for one round it is considered a start. The system will always show how many remaining starts you have for each player. Unofficial strategy: I don't have a clue how to best manage starts. If you try to save a player for later tournaments his hot play may turn cold. If you always start Tiger or Rory every time they are entered, they won't be available to start later in the year. For me, if a player is hot, I start him regardless.

 

7. The players you end one tournament with will automatically be your starters for the next tournament unless you go in and change your lineup. Since fields change each week, you have to change you lineup for every tournament or you'll have players starting who are not entered. It takes full attention every week and after every round to be sure your starters are playing.

 

8. More unofficial strategy: Beware of starting players who are injured. Some of those players may wait until Thursday morning to withdraw. I know of one player who did it several times last year... twice when I had him starting. If you start a player who withdraws at the last minute, you won't have a chance to replace him. If you set your lineup early in the week, check it on Wednesday night for withdrawals. The system will show NE for someone who is not entered. In almost every tournament there are several players who withdraw. Choose your A-List and C-List players carefully. If both miss the cut, you're going into the weekend not earning points in that section. This can also happen in the B-List but it's not as frequent since you have four players.

 

9. There are probably other things I've failed to mention. It's a lot of fun, but it also takes a fair amount of time. Hope this answers some of the questions.
