Gotta have all your players make the cut. If only 1 guy misses, you have very little chance of winning.
@briananderson6 that's why I was kind of wishing for segments like last year, so if you miss a week or 2, you can still win a segment and/or weekly prizes. But with yahoo dropping the game, @statman and @NaydelmanCG are doing a great job with more prizes this year, they are weekly, versus the segment prizes of last season.
@RonLf1ac, @ToddJ027b - I agree. I'm a little disappointed with the Golf Channel fantasy game. Pick your team on Wednesday night, then just sit back and watch. Nothing else to do. I prefer "managing" my team - starters and bench players (like we had with Yahoo last year). There is a lot of strategy involved with choosing the starters. And, you can absorb a player or two missing the cut and still be in the game.
RickM and I have been trying out a couple other fantasy leagues this year for comparison. The PGA Tour fantasy game looks promising. Pick 6 players, start 4, and the starters can be adjusted each day. They break the season into three segments. There is a limitation of using any one golfer - 3 times in each segment. But the scoring system is extremely complicated, and is based on each shot the golfers make. But at least it is somewhat similar to Yahoo in most ways.
Maybe that is the one we will use next year.
@statman I'm like you I wish we had the format of PGATour.com fantasy, but because that scoring is so complicated, I prefer the scoring the the GolfChannel game. I guess we'll never find the perfect game. We learn to play what we have available.
Great job again with taking care of all this!! I was so excited to see that I was in 1st for a hot minute Saturday morning, but that burst very quickly haha. My standings this year have been 22+ or from 6-10. Very erratic to say the least...
I like the format and the scoring but its to bad they dont have a safegaurd for missing gettng your picks in. In a football fantasy I run if you dont get your picks in on time you get the same amount of points as the lowest point getter of the week. I put my picks in on Monday and decide on changes on Wednesday just to make sure I got something in case I forget. Thanks again for putting all the work in on this, makes watching golf more enjoyable.
