JOINING A GROUP

Users will be asked to submit their email address and create a password that will be used for future logins. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an Entrant, the dispute will be resolved in favor of the individual who is the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of registration. Authorized account holder is defined as the natural person assigned an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (i.e., business or educational institution) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

Creating a Public Group– These groups use the standard contest Segments created by PGA TOUR Fantasy. (See Rule #2 and Appendix A). Play against other fans with similar interests, or challenge our PGA TOUR Fantasy Experts.

Schedule Public groups will have their season broken into 4 Segments (see Appendix A and dates listed out above in Rule #2). These Segments are fixed for public groups and cannot be altered. If you wish to play in a league with a flexible schedule, you must create or join a Custom Private group.

Creating a Private Group - Users also have the ability to create groups which are private and can only be joined if invited to play by the group's creator. Private groups can be set for the full season, use the same Segments as public leagues or set for a custom schedule of events. A private group uses the exact same rules as a public league, but allows a user to join with their friends and dictate the length of their schedule for group points. Only group creators can invite people to play in their private group. Private leagues can be created at any time during the PGA TOUR Season.

Schedule– As mentioned above, users creating private groups will have the opportunity to set their schedule as they see fit. Users can create a group with a schedule that fits even if only during certain times of the Contest Period. Choosing to play whichever tournaments (each, a “Tournament”) their league desires.

SETTING YOUR LINEUP

You decide which players to start for each Tournament. Your Team page allows you to analyze each of your current players, review their performance (previous week, year to date etc.) and freely move players between your lineup and the player pool up until the start of the Contest.

LINEUP LIMIT

Users are limited in the amount of times they can use each golfer throughout the season. Golfers are only allowed to be used up to 3 times per Segment. As soon as a golfer tees off it is considered a start whether they finish play or not. A player who is scratched prior to their first-round start will not count as a use.

SWAPS

If one of your golfers is not performing up to your expectations, you can swap them out with a player from your bench after each round. If a golfer is used for any round of the Tournament it will count as a start for the Segment limit.
