Scoring Spreadsheet

The time to draft is upon us. Here are the rules of the draft. I'll follow this post up with the draft order and then a post that outlines the scoring, league rules, and money payouts. 1st person can pick anytime before Thursday morning, but we won't start the timer until Thursday at 9am ET.

1) This will be serpentine style. If anyone is unfamiliar with that, it means in the even numbered rounds we go reverse order. So in round one we go 1-20, round two we go 20-1, round three is 1-20 and so forth.

2) I will post the draft order in the 2nd post.

3) We’ll give each person 24 hours to make their pick. As best I can, I will notify someone when they are on the clock via PM, e-mail or text. I encourage everyone to PM me their preferred method of contact. If after 12 hours nobody has made their pick, I’ll send them another PM/Text. If after 24 hours they miss their pick, we will give them the highest available ranked golfer according to the World Golf Rankings ( http://www.owgr.com/ranking ). After you make your pick, feel free to tag who is picking next in your post.

4) Please BOLD AND CAPS your pick. This is going to be fun, and thought process on the pick, people busting balls, etc… is all very encouraged. So there is no confusion, BOLD AND CAPS your pick so we know. I've asked TFP to help me out with this. If you're mobile and can't BOLD your selection, mention it in the post and we'll fix it.

5) I’ll do my best to update the team lists in the post #2. This is another thing I'll get help from TFP with. Before you make your pick, please check out who everyone has. Double check by going through the thread. It will start off easy, but get very difficult once we get to round 3 or 4. Sometimes, I won’t be available to update the teams as quick as the picks are coming in. If you pick someone that has already been picked, it is up to you to change your pick . Once you BOLD AND CAPS your pick, that gives the next person permission to pick their player. You will change your pick at any time, but we won’t wait to keep the draft going so you’d be only screwing yourself.

6) We will have 2 Add/Drop periods this year. The first add drop will be after the during the Valspar to take effect at the Houston Open and the second will be during the Memorial to take effect at the US Open. So basically, the first add drop will happen after the first third of the season, and the second one after two thirds of the season. Majors wise, your original drafted team will only the The Players. Then after the first add drop we'll have the Masters and the PGA Championship. Finally, after the second add drop you'll get the US Open and British Open.

7)The season will end at the BMW Championship. We'll also have a $50 pay out for whoever wins the Tour Championship (The Fedex Cup champion).

8) There is an extra $25 in the pool. That will be awarded to the member who drafted the golfer that misses the most cuts.

9) @Deathofthebambino has the option of taking Rob Oppenheim with his last pick, if he so chooses.

Here's the schedule. $100 tournaments are bolded.

Before you make your pick, please check out who everyone has. Double check by going through the thread. It will start off easy, but get very difficult once we get to round 3 or 4.
One tip here - using the search function and choosing "search this thread" for the last name of the person you want to pick is a quick way to confirm they're available.

@Vegas Sox Fan - do you mind if we make the 2nd post not a table? The tables are really annoying to edit, especially in volume.

Can we @ the next person up so there’s a notification to keep it moving? Going to be slow during the holidays so hope the early rounds can move quick.

@TFP is up, though tagging people might be broken again because I didn't get a notification when this thread was made so didn't even notice it until a little while ago.
