Son of a bitch - I'd be a hell of a lot closer to first place if I'd have just been here (and been lucky) for week 1.

Big special thanks to Tiger Woods for laying an egg this past week.

That was really weird, both he and Oberholser withdrew ???  I could have done better too, but my other guy from pool A missed the cut ::)

At least Obenholser put up some points before calling it quits.

Woods did too in the first round.  Not as much as Oberholser, but a couple anyway.

I am terrible at this, because I keep forgetting to check on Saturday to see if my guys made the cut or not...  :-[

Heh, I did the same thing last year as well, before I realized I could even do it.  At the point where I realized it I was ranked something like 69174 ::)  I did manage to work my way up about 30000 places, but it still wasn't impressive for the finish.

Even more interesting last year was watching guys near the top at the start of the year burn through Woods/Mickelson/Singh.  They dropped pretty darn fast after they used up their 10 turns each.  It's weeks like the one coming up that make a difference.  Though last week burned a lot of guys too, as the A pool didn't perform well.

You do have to check the night before.  Even when guys are listed as being in on Tuesday, they sometimes drop out. Part of the Wednesday night routine it must be.

Yeah, I went in on Tuesday and re-picked all 4 of my group b guys, only to see this AM that 2 of the 4 dropped out right before the tourney started like you said...  ::)

Well, I guess if all my guys make the cut and do well, I've got nothig to worry about...  :P

Am I the only one who forgot to set a roster this week?  I set it up to get a email reminder from Yahoo and I never got one this week - I tried to change it at 9:30 this morning but it was already locked down...

It's locked at 4 am eastern :-\  I did get my email, but I have so many pools going I'm on there everyday anyway. 

But don't worry, my roster's not working out so well anyway.

You should de-select the players though if they're not in the tournament, so they don't go against your 10 tournament maximum.

Good week to gain some ground on me :-\

Franco was eligible Wednesday night, not so Thursday morning ???

Same for Holmes but he's NE as well.

Then Darren Clarke goes 4 under and withdraws ???  I had Weir in there but moved him out.  Oops.

Yeah, I suck at Fantasy Golf... :-[

I think I am just going to surrender at this point.

Last week on Saturday I had the guy at #2 and #7 in my line-up.

Where did they finish?  #34 and #36...  and the rest of my team missed the cut.   ::)

I wouldn't, were I you.  It's not even half way through and there's a limit to the number of times you can use a guy.  I've already used Mickeleson five times and may use him again this week, so I'll be SOL with him before long.  It's a long season, to say the least.
