With two thirds of the field earning points from the final standings it's no suprise that eighteen of the twenty players in the points scoring positions were picks; Peter Malnati and Fabian Gomez were the non picks and both had high finishes.  

By virtue of a 1-2 finish from Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed 1GrumpyGolfer was just about able to hold off Davie and McLaren who both outscored him but didn't have enough to overhaul him.  McLaren had all of his picks score points while LadyPutt, Owen10ozzy, and SirBenson each had five picks score points; Owen didn't have quite the quality of LadyPutt or SirBenson who's picks included Spieth and Reed respectively.  Beninho, Davie, EmmDee57, Eyetoldyouso, I'm Never Wrong, Pedro, Raycastleunited, and SetupDetermines all had four picks score points.  There was a wide range in quality in their picks and Davie was the only one with Spieth.  1GrumpyGolfer, BlueCoverman, BobtheJob, Kwinigolfer, and Super_Realist each had three picks score points.

Jason Day had the low round, not with a 62 but a 65 was still impressive enough on a day when everyone beat par.  BlueCoverman, Owen10ozzy, Pedro, and Raycastleunited earned points from Day.

After being confused by the mild weather in NorthEast USA so far this winter I have not embarked upon hibernation and am now suffering the shock of this cold snap.  With much befuddlement [fanfare] the Fantasy League is back [fanfare]. Welcome to the warmup event for the start of the 2016 Fantasy League [clap, whoop, whistle, etc.].  

Not only is the League back but we have new rules designed to delight and confuse.  Gone are the bonuses and rewards for poor play, in come bonuses for good play in round two (but only in a no cut event), more events other than WGC's will get a weighted two rating, four sessions with fewer events, and some OWGR like ranking system (still to be determined).

Anyway let's get back to the golf.  The PGA Tour kickoffs 2016 with golf in Hawaii and opening up is the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.  A total of 36 players won PGA Tour events in 2015 allowing them to tee it up at Kapalua.  Four of them declined the invitation for one reason or another; the absentees are Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Jim Furyk, and Shane Lowry.  Jordan Speith and Jason Day renew hostilities at the peak of the World Golf Rankings as the headliners in Category A.  Patrick Reed qualified for the event courtesy of his victory in the 2015 Tournament of Champions and is the defending champion.  Previous winners include the Johnsons, Zach and Dustin, who won this in 2014 and 2013 respectively and Davis Love III who won it back in 1993!

Due to the limited field size the number of picks is scaled back to two from each category plus reserve.  This is also a no cut event so the usual cut bonuses are not in effect but additional points are available in round two.

________________________________________________________________________

Everyone please notify others of changes in field before tournament starts and invalid or incomplete picks from participants.

RULES

Picking players: Unless stated, pick a total of 6 players as follows:

Pick 2 players from each category, plus a reserve per category.

Event winner: The person with the most total points at the completion of each event will be declared the winner. In case of a tie, those involved will match-off each picks' final position score in descending order. i.e. Player A's best finish vs. Player B's best finish, Player A's 2nd best finish vs. Player B's 2nd best finish, etc... until one's pick finishes better than the other(s).

If there is a tie after all 6 picks have been matched against each other, those involved will be declared co-winners.

Player Withdrawals: If you pick a player who withdraws during a tournament, that player will be eligible for points for all completed rounds and making the cut if they withdraw after the cut. It must be apparent that the player completed their round for them to be eligible for either the low round, worse round, top 5, or top 10 low round scores.  If a player withdraws before starting the tournament then your reserve will be put in that player's place. It is up to you to check that your players are in the starting field.

Holidays / Absences: If you will be absent for an upcoming event (e.g holidays) you may post the numbers on the most recent fantasy league event and the respective tournament(s) that apply or PM them to me.  Example: Pick 3 players and 1 reserve from each category and the relative event number or name: Players 4, 5, and 8, reserve 9 from Category A, players 1, 3, and 7, reserve 5 from Category B, players 1, 2 and 17, reserve 12 from Category C, Event #12.

Failure to submit picks: If you do not submit picks you will be awarded zero points.

Deadlines: Picks must ideally be submitted before the first drive is struck on the first day of the tournament.  However, late picks submitted after the tournament has begun must be for players who have yet to start (or are not showing a score on europeantour.com, PGATour.com, etc.), and these will not be valid unless they are seconded by any other league member.

All fantasy league disputes and discrepancies will be considered by the League Judge: LadyPutt. All decisions made by the League Judge are final.

It might be, but it's about as interesting as supporting Man U in their prime, or being a Maclaren fan in their prime, or being a 9C fan in his prime, I'm seeing a pattern here.

I have never picked 1,2,3 from every section.  I just don't see the value in trying to make unfounded predictions.  The case to pick 3 from the top 5 in every category is usually pretty strong.

Do you want to check Mac? CLICK HERE Didn't have to go far back to find it.
...and in a number of the final series you picked the top two in each category when there were only two picks.

First event proper has just been posted so the initial test of Mac's instincts is in place.

???? No way did I say I want extra categories.

Yes you did! You suggested dividing each category into two: the top 3, call it Cat A1, and the remainder, A2.

Anyway, it's not important.
