Fantasy Golf 2017 FAQs

How does bunkered Fantasy Golf scoring work?
Points are dished out on a sliding scale for players who finish in the top 20 of each of the counting events in bunkered Fantasy Golf ’17 (see right).

Where two or more players finish in a tie, the points are added together and divided equally.

For example, if Lee Westwood and Luke Donald finish tied for second in the Scottish Open, the points for second place (40pts) and third place (30pts) would be combined and divided between them. Thus, both players would receive 35 points.

How do I earn bonus points?
Triple points are available for each of the four major championships: The Masters, US Open, The Open and US PGA Championship.

Double points are available for the two World Golf Championships that take place during bunkered Fantasy Golf ’17 – the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the WGC-HSBC Golf Champions – as well as for The Players Championship, the Tour Championship and the DP World Tour Championship.

How does my team’s captain earn points?
Each week, you will be given the chance to select a captain from the 12 players in your team. That player will then earn double points that week.

For example, if you choose Luke Donald as your captain for the Scottish Open and he ultimately wins the event, he will earn you 100 points (2 x standard 50pts for victory).

Likewise, if you choose Jordan Spieth as your captain for the Masters and he ultimately wins it, he will earn you 300 points (2 x (3 x standard 50pts).

Can I change my team?
Once you have selected your team, you will be able to change it up to the start of the Masters on April 6, 2017. After this you will not be able to change it until Tuesday, April 11 when the first transfer window will open. You will then be able to change your entire team, if you so choose, between 8am on the Tuesday and 12midnight on the Wednesday the day after.

How does the Friday transfer work?
Every Friday evening, the Transfer Window will open from 6pm until midnight, during which time you will be able to make one additional transfer to your team. Points ultimately earned that week by the player you transfer out will be disregarded from your score, with points ultimately earned by the player you transfer in counting towards your total.

Can I change my captain with my Friday transfer?
You can transfer your captain out of your team if you so wish but you will not be able to choose a replacement captain.

How will I be able to check my team’s progress?
Visit your team page and following the on-screen instructions. You will then be shown your team’s most up-to-date results.

When is the leaderboard updated?
Every Monday morning by 11am. In the event of a Monday finish, the leaderboard will be updated on the corresponding Tuesday morning, again by 11am.

I have registered but not received my confirmation email yet. What should I do?
In the first instance, try refreshing your inbox. If it is still not there, log-out and then log-in again to your email account. If there is still no sign, check your spam folder in case it has been re-routed there.

I’ve forgotten my password. Is there any way of retrieving it?
Yes. Go to the ‘log-in’ page on the website and click on the ‘Forgot password’ link where you will be issued with a password reminder.

How do I know if I’ve won a prize?
