Detailed Rules

Objective
The goal of the contest is to accrue the most earnings by selecting PGA golfers to compete for you over a season of tournaments. Each week you will pick one golfer. The total winnings accrued by your selected golfer at the END of each tournament will be added to your total season winnings. Total season winnings are used to determine the season winners.

In addition to the season competition, there can be seperate segment competitions. The segments are typically composed of 4-10 tournaments. Session 1 is weeks 1-10, Session 2 is weeks 11-20, and so on. During each segment, each team will accrue winnings and the top teams in each segment can win prizes.
Scoring System
You may only use a golfer ONCE during the season. You must submit your starting golfer via the website prior to first round play beginning each Thursday. The weekly lineup page contains the lineup deadline which is usually the same as the first tee time. Upon submitting your lineup, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your selected golfer.

Your selected golfer will earn you the winnings he is awarded at the end of the tournament (assuming he makes the cut and wins some money).

The website tracks all golfer usages for each team and makes it easy to determine which golfer you've already used (as well as your opponents). However, you are SOLELY responsible for ensuring that your selected golfer is playing in each week's tournament by using the resources available on the website.
Alternate Pick / No Shows
Each week an alternate golfer can be picked in case a starting golfer is a first round NO SHOW:
Did Not Start (DNS)
Disqualified (DQ)
Withdrawn (WD)
In the rare case a golfer is started and withdraws prior to teeing off or NEVER plays in the tournament, he will not be charged a usage. This is known as a Did Not Start (DNS). Leagues can also choose to use an alternate pick for golfers who withdraw (WD) or get disqualified (DQ) in first round. If a golfer completes the first round (i.e. posts a score for 18 holes) and then the WD/DQ occurs, the alternate pick does not apply. If any of the NO SHOW situations above occur for a tournament and you have selected an alternate golfer, your lineup will be automatically updated between the 1st and 2nd rounds. You will receive a system generated email notifying you of the lineup change.
Season Duration
One and Done contests can start at various times throughout the first 4 months of the calendar year. Typical leagues are 12-37 consecutive PGA tournaments with segments of 4-8 weeks (also configurable).
Prizes
League commissioners can setup weekly, segment, and season prizes for top performers. Optional prizes for the following can also be configured:

  • Highest score in all 4 Majors tournaments (with option to include TPC as 5th major).
  • Cuts made made, start of season streak, and anytime streak
  • Highest score without picking a tournament winner for entire season (or fewest winners).
  • Skins prize for any team that gets the solo high score for a given week.
  • Best Ball contest for leagues wanting to pair up teams for additional side competition.
