    Pick 5 golfers. After the tournament, winnings are added up and the most wins. If there are ties, then the tie breakers kick in. You can change all the way up to the 3rd round but there are penalties for changing picks after each round.

    Basically, if your golfer misses the cut, you'll change him, but if he ends up winning it, you'll take a hit the closer to the final round you change. After final round, it's done.



    So pay attention, and have some faith in your picks if they aren't doing well come Saturday. You change them and change it back you get penalties, and it wouldn't help as much.




    The game rules are very specific and above is the abbreviated versions.

    For those of you that do not understand how the FanGolf system works, let me try to explain it. Maybe the way I put it will make more sense.



    - Winner is selected by the person who has the most earnings in the tournament. (The total of how much the players they picked get paid).

    - Before the tournament started (which is considered prior to midnight in the time zone of the tournament) you select 5 players

    - After round 1 and before midnight prior to round 2 in the time zone of the tournament you can drop any, all, or none of your original 5 players and pick up new players (deduct 15% from their earnings)

    - After round 2 and before midnight prior to round 3 in the time zone of the tournament you can drop any, all, or none of your original 5 players and pick up new players (deduct 35% from their earnings)

    - After round 3 and before midnight prior to round 4 in the time zone of the tournament you can drop any, all, or none of your original 5 players and pick up new players (deduct 60% from their earnings)



    If there is a tie in the amount a person's players won, then the tie breakers are as follows:



    [color="#1C2837"][size="2"]1. Net Earnings

    If Net Earnings are the same, then the system looks at:



    2. Lowest Number of Picks by the user

    If the lowest number of picks by the user is the same, then the system looks at:



    3. The Earliest Timestamp of the user's last pick[/size][/color]



    [size="2"][color="#1C2837"]
    [/color][/size]

    [size="2"][color="#1C2837"]If you still want to learn how it works, I'd recommend reading this thread. I played HEAVILY during the first half of the '08 season and did well. For a single tournament there is a fair amount of luck involved, but maybe if you follow how it works in the long run you can pick up on some strategies.[/color][/size]

    Now the hard part... Risk the money of a solid finish, or take the hit on a big payout player??



    Mickelson is costing me.. Do I swap the guy for Cabrera at a discount?

    I imagine anyone with Schwartzel from the beginning will be in the money or very close - there can't be too many.
