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 tour members. I myself know that my golf game on most occassions 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, and our Yearly Golf Fantasy Draft which starts in February and runs thru the FedEx cup playoff events, and the Playoff Golf for September as well as our fantasy golf annual championship with another $15,000 in prizes. Each month's fantasy golf lists 80 PGA 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 five days of the completion of that month's tournaments.
