At RealGolfTalk we got into Fantasy Golf after we had been playing Fantasy Football for years and years. With the love we have for golf we started looking into starting a Fantasy Golf league where we played Fantasy Football. The problem with this was that there were no options for Fantasy Golf. Then we found DraftKings, and highly recommend them. So let’s give everyone a break down, or introduction, or refresher, or some well-known knowledge depending on where you are in your Fantasy Golf adventure.
Let’s start by telling you that DraftKings offers a Salary-Cap based Fantasy Golf Leagues. All Fantasy Golf is based around the PGA Tour. Normally contests will be open for registration and drafting of players before the tournament begins which again is normally on Thursdays and run the entire tournament is over which again is normally on a Sunday.
Ok so most of that everyone understood pretty clearly but maybe you don’t know what we mean by drafting players. With DraftKings each golfer participating in the current week’s tournament is given a price value. You have a Fantasy $50,000 to draft your team of golfers.
