Definite bias here, but I thought Weir's win was more exciting last year.  I completely agree the final round overall was much more exciting, but I give a slight nod to Weir's win.  

Poor Phil though, he has a daughter (too young for you pervs) as well.

ANyone ever gotten a Hole In One?  I came close once...

It was a fairly cool September day and there was a slight mist on the course.  Being young, and fresh out of college with some ching in my pocket I had recently taken up the sport again after dabbling as a youth.  Playing 2-3 times a week I was getting pretty average and was excited to step up to the tee box on Hole #2 after getting a Birdie on #1.  It was a 150 yard Par 3 and I pulled my 7 Iron I believe.  I hit the shot and immediately knew it was perfect...perfect swing, felt great, was heading right for the pin.  The greens being a little wet accepted my ball with a slight thud about 6" above the cup, it slowly rolled backwards and stopped an inch past the pin missing the cup by less than 1/2" when we went and looked where it rolled (you could see the path do to the moisture on the green)

I haven't come closer than that and would have went balistic if I had actually sunk it...still waiting

Well, not me, but today I went golfing with a buddy.  Par 3, 197 yards.  I put my 5-wood over the back of the green.  He tees it up, 3 iron.  Decent shot, played his slice well.  Bounces once in front of the green, once on the green then rolls toward the pin.  He turns away, happy with his shot.  I'm still watching.  The ball disappears.  The frigging ball frigging disappears :o

We're walking up to the hole, he's totally relaxed, I'm flipping out.  Walk up, look down.  Yup.  Hole in one.  Farging bastage.

That sucks that he missed seeing it too, I would go absolutely ape crap if I hit one.  My buddy got one and didn't see it either, it was around a 200 yard hole and he hit his 5 wood, bent down to pick up his tee and walked toward the hole, looked around couldn't find his ball anywhere, looked and looked and looked and finally the guy he was with asked him if he checked the cup.  There it was, farging bastage

Anyone want to play some Fantasy Golf?

I sort of do

You basically assemble teams of 4 starting Golfers based on 8 Golfers you pick


Golfers are broken into Groups of A, B and C golfers and you start 1 A (of 2) 2 B's (of 4) and 1 C (of 2), Maximum of 10 Starts per Golfer for the year

I'm not really sure why you need 8 Golfers if you can change your roster to whatever you want after each tournament

I'd be game if you wanted to start up league. I follow golf enough to have a pretty good idea on who else is good past the obvious 2 of Vijay and Tiger.

Does this league last the entire year?

Yeah...I just don't get why you get 8 roster spots though when you can change willy nilly as far as I can tell

Im guessing with a 10 start max for players, you'll need all those roster spots. I'm hoping they limit each of your 8 roster spots to those 10 starts regardless of the player occupying it, otherwise what prevents you from constantly dropping and adding players and fielding 4 golfers every single weekend their is a tournement?  That would kind of defeat the 10 start max with the exception of a few handful of golfers that you would want to keep the whole year.

Ah...

You can change your teams as the tournament goes on during the weekend but only for the other A or B or C players.  Once the tourny is over you can then change your squad of 8

So basically your starting 4 could differ from round 1 of a tourney to round 4? And then after that you're free to drop and pick up players during the week and then reset a squad of 8 before the next tourney? Interesting way of doing it I guess. Keeps you leaderboard watching thruout the entire tournament this way.

Correct

I'll start the league, if there's only 3 of us and nobody switches their rosters no big whoop.  Just a way to pass more time between now and Baseball (aka Get My Revenge on Dressel)

So is there like a draft for this, or is every player available to all of us? I don't see it mention anything about a draft, but it seems it might be more fun if there were. Not quite as interesting and competive if we all have Tiger, Vijay, Michelson and a few of the other top ranked players on our teams, even if we're unable to start them week in and week out the entire year.

The draft should go quick then.  

At one point, golf drafts excluded Tiger, but I don't think there's any need for that at the moment.  Vijay is dominating, but it's still pretty open and he won't play every tournament.
