Point Scoring System for Monthly and Playoff Drafts

Finishing position for each of the tournaments played;

Tie Breakers for player position points

  1. Lowest 4th round
  2. Lowest 3rd round
  3. Lowest 2nd round
  4. Lowest 1st round

These tiebreakers make it so only 1 player will finish in each position 1st-40th place in each tournament and they have been used and needed in every one of our golf fantasy drafts.

Example: If there is a 3 way tie in total points for 2nd place and the 3 players scores were in order 1st round thru the 4th round and total.

  1. Mickelson 68-68-70-67-and total 273
  2. Els 68-67-70-68-and total 273
  3. Weir 68-66-72-67-and total 273

Mickelson finishes in 2nd place as his 67 in the 4th round is lower than Els 68, and his 70 in the 3rd round is lower than Weir's 72. Weir finishes in 3rd place as his 67 in the 4th round is lower than Els 68. Then Els finishes in 4th place as Mickelson and Weir finished better using the tiebreakers as stated above.

[Overview] [Home]

Fantasy Golf drafts provided by Sports Fanatics Player Drafts since 1995. Our fantasy golf drafts are very special on a personal note as I was a long time PGA golf club professional. The Fantasy golf drafts were added to our sports drafts in 1995. Fantasy golf drafts I hope help improve all contestants knowledge of the PGA and Senior PGA tour members. I myself know that my golf game on most often was just that fantasy golf, as I am still overwhelmed by the talent of the tour players of today and the legends of the game. Our monthly fantasy golf drafts offer great prizes each month, February thru August, as well as our fantasy golf annual championship with another $5,000 in prizes. Each month's fantasy golf lists 65-70 PGA tour players and 10-15 Champion tour players and the real golf tournament events for the month. Being a modest at best golf professional myself, I wanted to offer all golf fans an opportunity to dream about their games by teaming with real golf pros, as I often fantasize about my own ability. Our fantasy golf drafts help provide that opportunity for all contestants. The Fantasy golf drafts are easy to play and provide a fun challenge each week and each month during the fantasy golf season. The scoring system for our fantasy golf drafts came from the knowledge I gained from my years of golf and the golf professionals I met over the years. We break all ties for position points by using the last round first, then backwards thru rounds 3, 2 and 1. I have often felt that the start of a tour event is important but that the pressure is really on during the 4th round as the players then know where they stand in position of potential prize monies. This I included in our fantasy drafts as I felt the contestants would appreciate the last round having more importance in our fantasy golf drafts as most of the contestants can watch the final round of each tournament. The scoring we use for the fantasy golf events also put more emphasis on the later rounds for the tiebreakers as well. Our fantasy golf drafts we list on the web site the real golf player points earned each week, as well as our fantasy golf contestants points earned and the contestant standings first thru last place. We also list all of our fantasy golf contestants player selections on a seperate page for each fantasy golf draft. By listing all the fantasy golf contestant's player selections in each fantasy golf draft in rank order this provides our contestant a better way to follow the standings each week. We provide the player point lists and the fantasy golf contestant standings each week on Monday morning after each tour event is concluded, or within hours after a rain delayed event. All of our prizes for each months fantasy golf draft are mailed out within three days of the completion of that month's tournaments.
