Strategy & Tips
This game is a marathon and not a sprint.
Remember, this contest is a 33 week marathon made up of 4 sprints. So pick your golfers accordingly.
Make sure you select golfers who are playing in the tournament.
Make sure you check the PGA tournament field and other PTFG Resources before submitting your lineup. Golfers listed in the lineup drop-down boxes are not necessarily playing in upcoming tournament as our site simply lists all golfers. Golfers can withdraw at the last minute, so it's never a bad idea to check the player news, Vegas Odds Checker, and other resources also available on the Lineup page.
Use the Odds Checker site over any other resource for determining who is playing in the tournament.
Within our website, there is a link to an Odds Checker website ranking the golfers most likely to win the tournament. This page should be used over any other as it is the most up-to-date. Any time a golfer drops out or gets added to the field prior to the tournament starting, the Odds Checker site is almost immediately updated. However, the PGA Tour and other sites can be slow to make such updates. The link to the Odds Checker site can be found on 3 different pages within the website:
Once tournament play begins, be sure to check out the link to the Live Predictive Model website which can be accessed from the Results and Resources pages.
Be careful when picking golfers with the last name.
When picking a golfer with the same last name (e.g. Johnson), make sure you pick the correct one. For example, Dustin Johnson vs. Zach Johnson. Any golfer with the last name Kim is another common mix-up. When selecting a golfer in the drop-down, it's easy to accidentally select the first golfer with the same last name instead of the golfer you intended. After submitting your lineup, be sure to take 10 seconds to confirm your lineup selections via the confirmation email or weekly Results page.
Learn how to use our website.
Our website is very easy to use and makes playing our game a cinch. The website will keep track of all golfer usages for each team. Most people probably know this, but on the Lineup drop-downs, if you type the first letter of a golfer's last name, it will take you right there. Type the letter again to advance to the next golfer. Tables on every page can be sorted if you click on the column heading. On the weekly Results page, if you mouse-over a team name, you will see the owner's name. Or for completed tournaments, mouse-over a golfer's name to see what place he finished in. On the Clubhouse page, if you mouse-over an owner name, you will see their team name(s).
