How to Pick Your Team
Create your Fantasy Golf team from the ‘real life’ players on the European & PGA Tours.
Pick 1 golfer from each of the Tour Categories (Group 1 - Group 10). Golfers in each category are grouped together as they are of similar rank and the categories themselves ascend in order of rank i.e. Golfers in Group 2 are generally of a higher rank than the golfers in Group 3.
You can either manually pick a team using your golfing know-how, or use the ‘Lucky Dip’ option, where the computer picks a team for you.
Choose one player from your 10 golfers be the ‘Captain’ of your team. This player will DOUBLE his game points during the time he remains as Captain for your team.
You can change your captain whenever you want, but only the captain named in your team at 23:59 (UK Time) each Thursday will score points for that weeks tournaments. Any subsequent changes to your captain will not score points unless they are named as captain at the next captain transfer deadline
You can change your Captain by clicking the ‘change captain’ link on your team - you will then be asked to select a different golfer to be your Captain. If no captain is chosen, no player will receive double points!
Important: Free Transfer Window
Up until 23:59 (UK Time) on 5th April 2012 there is a transfer amnesty – before this deadline you can shuffle your fantasy team around to your heart’s content without using your transfers. Transfers made after the transfer window closes will be taken from the transfer allocation.
