How does bunkered Winter Fantasy Golf scoring work?

Points are dished out on a sliding scale for players who finish in the top 20 of counting events on the PGA Tour and European Tour (see below).

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 Dubai Desert Classic, the points for second place (40pts) and third place (30pts) would be combined and divided between them. Thus, both players would receive 35 points.

Position Points
1st 50
2nd 40
3rd 30
4th 25
5th 20

How do I earn bonus points?

Double points are available for four different events in the bunkered Fantasy Golf Winter League: the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, the Dubai Desert Classic, the WGC-Mexico Championship, and the Players 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. The points earned by that player that week will count double.

For example, if you choose Luke Donald as your captain for the Dubai Desert Classic and he wins, you will receive 100 points (2 x standard 50pts for victory).

Likewise, if you choose Rory McIlroy as your captain for the Players Championship and he ultimately wins it, he will earn you 200 points (2 x (2 x standard 50pts).

How do I change my team?

Once you have selected your team for the first time, you will be able to change it up until the first ball is struck in the opening round of the South African Open on December 6, 2018. After this you will not be able to change it until Tuesday, December 11, when the transfer window will open for the first time. You will then be able to change your entire team, if you so choose, between 8am on the Tuesday and 11.59pm 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 TWO bonus changes to your team. Points ultimately earned that week by the players 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 select a replacement captain.

How will I be able to check my team’s progress?
