4-5 inches of rain has suspended round 1. Total BS. I had dinner made, sat down on the couch ready to watch, and not even a hope of play today.

Whats even worse is that 80% of our league has almost the exact same lineup with the same A starter and backup :roll:

I barely skimmed through the scoring. Seemed slightly complicated, but I'm sure if I start guys that are playing well I'll be fine. I assume that if my starter isn't gonna make the cut that I can swap him with his backup? If neither make the cut I'm SOL?

Yes and yes. Scoring is pretty simple, player with lowest real-life score in tournament gets 20 pts, and every player's pts are based off of the leaders' score, with -2 pts for every stroke behind. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place picks receive 20, 15, and 10 bonus pts.

Nice blowup from Kim, made the turn at -3 and finished +1. Villegas killed a couple of you today. I can't get myself to throw Appleby in the lineup. He completely luck boxed his way into the lead. I think Stricker and Clark can beat him tomorrow. This is fun. I'm getting really pissed when my guys miss these birdie putts.

It's based on a per day basis. 20 pts for the hot round, 18 pts for the second best....... If there is a tie, both players receive the max pts (ie. there may be more than one guy in a day who can score 20 pts). You get a 20,10, and 5 pt bonus at the end if any of the the players you started takes 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. If they sat on your bench the whole time, you get nada.

I'm pretty excited about this. Easy to maintain and it makes it that much more fun to watch. Should be good time. I'm in for whatever you guys decide, discs, cash, no man-love though.

Remember folks that the Bob Hope Classic is always a 5-round tournament, starting on Wednesday instead of Thursday, so get your picks in a day sooner.

This tournament is one of the biggest crap shoots of the year. Any tips?

This stupid pitch and putt shouldn't even count. 3 of my guys shoot even or worse while Sterling Sharpe shoots 5 or 6 down. I hope I'm a celebrity by next year so I can go kick Bubba Watson's ass too.

Yes, I'm well aware there are at least 2 sports I could kick his ass at.

There's one other event like that this year. Love to tell you which one, but you rookies should have to learn the hard way.

Only one I could think of would be the Accenture Match Play but obv that isnt on the schedule...didnt see any other 5-day-ers on the schedule, and unless im drawing a complete blank i didnt think there were any others

Looks like I'm the only one that didn't take Tiger but did take Boo Weekley.
