FDH Fantasy Newsletter: Volume IV, Issue XIII

Welcome to our 126th edition of the FDH Fantasy Newsletter, as we continue to bring you weekly fantasy sports updates in addition to our usual content on Our archive of past editions is available right here on The Blog and specific links to past editions are available at

For the seventh consecutive year, in 2011, we at are conducting a fantasy golf draft as a means of demonstrating to the readers, viewers and listeners of FDH content how to take their enjoyment of golf to the next level with a pool to be enjoyed among friends. As with any sports that we cover, we furnish suggested league guidelines for your convenience. So we'll start with that, then furnish our draft board.

FDH Fantasy Golf Suggested League Guidelines

^ A standard serpentine-style draft serves as the best place to begin. The ideal distribution of talent would be as follows: 5 teams drafted by 7 owners.

^ Because there are only a handful of tournaments that include a cross-section of the world's best golfers, we urge you to use only these events for your league's scoring system. In so doing, the emphasis is kept on the skill level of the golfers as opposed to rewarding those golfers who thrive in the majority of events with the weaker rosters of competitors. This method uses the four major tournaments and the eight "near major" tournaments. These are the events utilized, in the order that they appear on the schedule, with the major tournaments in bold: The Masters (April 4-10), The Players Championship (May 9-15), The Memorial (May 30-June 5), US Open (June 13-19), British Open (July 11-17), WGC Invitational (August 1-7), PGA Championship (August 8-14), The Tour Championship (September 19-25).

^ Scoring for the 4 "near major" tournaments is as follows: 90 points for 1st place, 76 points for 2nd place, 60 points for 3rd place, 50 points for 4th place, 40 points for 5th place, 30 points for 6th place, 26 points for 7th place, 20 points for 8th place, 16 points for 9th place and 10 points for 10th place. These points should be awarded also to the Top 10 finishers in the final Fed Ex Cup standings.

^ Scoring for the 4 major tournaments is as follows: 135 points for 1st place, 114 points for 2nd place, 90 points for 3rd place, 75 points for 4th place, 60 points for 5th place, 45 points for 6th place, 39 points for 7th place, 30 points for 8th place, 24 points for 9th place and 15 points for 10th place.
