Think I’ll try watch all this tonight. What a golf course it is, some of the views are amazing. Normally I prefer a difficult course but enjoying watching this
Tbh it's a bit of a farce for a competition labelled as a "Tournament of Champions" to be played on a course that is so easy.

Jones shot -23 over the weekend to finish 3rd, laughable really.

It's a tremendous "resort" style course but I played it a few years ago with a buggy and my legs were still burning after my round,the volcanic hills are a pure killer

No argument that it looks spectacular and would be great to play, but I like to see the top players getting challenged a bit. I'm sure they said there were only 7 or 8 rounds that were level par or worse in the whole event.

Think what really sticks is that there are a lot of ranking points attached to it, Smith got 63 OWGR points for winning, Morikawa only got 48 for winning the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Cam Smith said he was disappointed he didn't make -35 as that was his target, which shows what the pros think of the difficulty.

That ranking points status is a bit silly. Its always seemed to me to be viewed as a post Christmas loosener more than anything else. 

Sometimes the strength of the field doesn't equate with the magnitude of the event and this is one of them.

**Fantasy Golf League Week 1**

Screen-Shot-2021-02-17-at-10_12.14-1000x600.png.2345317be4424aa6f27774d855f41a33.png

HWFG

We are back baby for the 2nd p&b Fantasy Golf League. Cam Smith broke all sorts of records at The Plantation Course at Kapalua. Not least The Man with the Worst Haircut/Facial Hair Combo to have won multiple PGA Tour events.

Lots to get through in the 1st week so...

Standings 

Due to the number of participants this year, we're doing it slightly different. There's still an overall league of 23, but I won't be posting it every week. Instead I've split us into 4 Conferences to make it easier for me to record stuff and keep track of things. I'll still occasionally post the full table after big events and at halfway etc.

The top 4 from last year @die hard doonhamer @peasy23 @Tartan Dave @Ro Sham Bo were seeded and the rest were drawn randomly using this https://www.randomresult.com/tournament.php

So...

The Montgomerie

There will be more info about the above and the mini tournaments up shortly alongside a list of everyone's teams.

We're staying in Hawaii for the Sony Open this week at The Waialae Country Club. The course is a classic Seth Raynor design from the Golden Age of American course architecture and couldn't be more different from Kapalua with some fairways only half the size of those at The Plantation Course. Scoring will be similar however with little wind forecast and Justin Thomas' 72 hole record of -27 might be under threat.

**Fantasy Golf League**

So this year we'll still have the overall 1,2 and 3 in the Fantasy league with prizes of £20 £10 and £5 in free golf bets respectively.

The Conferences will run until 3 weeks before the last tournament when the winners of each will receive a £5 free bet and will go forward to the 'Final 4' where the highest points scorer of the remaining 3 weeks will win a £10 free bet.

The Road to Augusta returns this year. A £10 free bet to use at the Masters to whoever scores the most points between week 1 and the Masters. @J_Stewart is the defending champion, can he retain the famous Green Trackie Top or will he be gently placing it around the shoulders of another ?

IMG_20220111_201553.thumb.jpg.32cf1967ae8867aa7d24a40f9a4da5c3.jpg

No Ryder Cup this year, so no Race to Whistling Straits type league. Instead we'll have The p&b Matchplay. Introducing some friendly/bitter head to head action. 6 groups with the top 2 and 4 best 3rd places progressing to the last 16 and so on, spread throughout the season with the final played on the last week.

Top 6 from last year were seeded once again and a random draw for the rest.

https://www.randomresult.com/tournament.php

Group A

Group B

Group C

Group D

Group E

Group F

Playing each other twice then 2 legged knock out 3 points for a win 1 for a draw with away 'goals' and 'goal' difference used to separate ties. Fixtures will be spread throughout the season.

I'm away for a lie down before I post everyone's teams up.

And finally, everyone's teams for you admire/point and laugh.

A couple of you never specified which Hojgaard brother you wanted. I gave you Rasmus.

Thought I'd be smart and just snip from excel, but it's only allowing 7 at a time.

This is amazing mate! 

Cheers mate. I just felt that last year the winner kind of ran away with it a bit, there was a battle for the minor places but the rest of the league was cut adrift and didn't have much involvement after about July. Hopefully we can have more people with something to play for throughout the year this time.

Well played @Kima Greggs  and thanks for organising for another year.

Really looking forward to the collective heads gone on here when Morikawa is outed as a coke fiend/automaton/deviant/mad shagger/insert your own personal proclivity and is somehow disqualified from Tour on a technicality. 😂

Spoiler

I know. It won’t happen. Meh…
