Run a Masters Pool

I realize that it's Baseball season and that the last thing you probably want to hear about is Fantasy Golf.  So, I'm not going to talk about it.  But if you're anything like me, you like golf on a casual basis, and maybe even a little more at times.  Well, The Masters (on CBS...a tradition unlike any other) is one of those times for me.  In fact, my friends and I used to run a Masters pool every year where we'd each kick in some ummm, marbles, hold a draft, pick 5 players, and the lowest aggregate score won. And this was great until Tiger came along. Then it was all about who got the first pick in the draft.  So the last few years, we've been using our own Fantasy Golf Challenge to run the pool. The game play changes a little bit because it is a salary cap style game, but the premise is the same.  Basically, each golfer is assigned a predetermined salary and each participant has $1,000,000 to spend on 5 golfers.  Use the "buddy group" functionality to invite your buddies so you can all compete against each other.  We do the rest of the work.  The winner is the person whose 5 golfers earned the most amount of money in the tournament,  It's been working really well for us and the best part about it is that ANYONE can have Tiger if they so choose.  And who knows, you might just win one of our weekly prizes in the process.  Lineups lock on Thursday at 6am ET, so there isn't a whole lot of time.
