Is Fantasy Golf Better Than Fantasy Football?

Fantasy Sports Golf

If you enjoy watching the PGA then you need to join the Chunkland fantasy golf league. I’ve been participating in this league for the past 5 years and it’s a fucking blast. In my opinion, it is more fun than fantasy football.

How Does It Work?

The goal of Chunkland fantasy golf is to accrue the most earnings by selecting PGA golfers to compete for you over a season of 26 tournaments. Each week you will pick one golfer. The total earnings accrued by your selected golfer at the END of each tournament will be added to your total season earnings. Total season earnings are used to determine the season winners.

In addition to the season competition, there are 3 separate segment competitions. The 3 segments are composed of 8 tournaments. Segment 1 is weeks 1-8, Segment 2 is weeks 9-16, and so on. During each segment, each team will accrue earnings, and the top teams in each segment will also win prizes as per the Prize Money Schedule.

Scoring System

You may only use a golfer ONCE during the season. You must submit your starting golfer via the website before first-round play begins each Thursday. The weekly lineup page contains the lineup deadline which is usually the same as the first tee time. Upon submitting your lineup, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your selected golfer.

Whatever your selected golfer is awarded at the end of the tournament (assuming he makes the cut and wins some money) will be added to your “purse”. For example, if you picked Jon Rahm for the Genesis Invitational, $3,600,000 would be added to your “purse”.

The website tracks all golfer usage for each team and makes it easy to determine which golfer you’ve already used (as well as your opponents). All PGA Tour golfers in the system are listed in the drop-downs, not just those playing in the upcoming tournament. Therefore, you are responsible for ensuring that your selected golfers play in each week’s tournament. Use the resources on the website to do this including several buttons on the Lineup page such as Check Field, Odds Checker, and Tee Times.
