    Forget about your failed Coors stack for a second, and forget about asking Saahil Sud anything. If you play PGA DFS (which, I guess, is now known as “Golf DFS” – as non-PGA has been added to the mix), we’d love to hear from you.

    Currently, we are making some gradual upgrades to our Golf content and tools. So our question for you is:

    If you had your say, what would you like to see added? What would you like to see changed?

    Okay, that’s all. Back to your one run from the Rockies, and back to asking Saahil anything…

    I would like to see more statistics available and possibly a podcast that explains them in depth and show how to best use them each week. Thanks

    What I think would be interesting/helpful is course history info that ties in something like where a player was ranked in FedEx cup points/world ranking or something at that time.

    My reasoning is this: If a guy won a tournament while he was ranked #1 in the world, but is now #60, I might weight that course history less than someone who previously won a tournament when they were ranked #90 and are now #30.

    I truely believe that DFS golf is the greatest game to play and watch for a small time player. The best thing is that its a 4 day event that ends up on Sunday? if you are in the hunt, what a day of sports viewing it is. every tee shot to every putt is important. You cant get enough info on whats going on until the final players reach the back nine.

    with that said, i am not so good at fantasy golf, the lack of info or my stupidity of where to find it is a problem.

    something i think is important is where a player grew up, where they currently live, gives me an idea on how they are familiar with a course. i want to know if they play well in front of the people that supported there career(most do). I want to see the history of players on the course being played. Its essential to pick 2 players that are not ranked in the top 50 to balance the salaries. Please tell me how to pick these players without having an “expert” pick them for me. No i dont want you to pick my player but i need info based on history in order to make a semi informed judgement.

    Trends that have shown as successful statistics amongst the top 10 from previous years. What johnnybruhhas posted is great but looking at just the winner doesn’t tell us very much. Strokes gain tee to green could be a vital statistic at a particular venue and someone can put lights out and win the tournament and all the sudden it looks like strokes gained putting is most important if you’re just analyzing the winner’s stats.

    I would like to see Noto’s stat rank published for all golfers. I can see that for The Memorial tournament he has McIlory ranked 2nd and Matsuyama ranked 6th (relative to the field) but I don’t know who is 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, etc.

    Can someone make projections based on DK points instead of how they project to finish a tourney? Someone making an eagle and two bogey’s is more valuable than someone making three pars. We value K’s for pitchers, 3’s for NBA scoring, TD’s in football, etc.

    I’m still fairly new to the PGA side of DFS, but have been an avid golf fan for years. What most people do not realize is that making golf lineups is an almost completely different animal than other sports. Every player plays the same amount of holes per round barring any sort of Withdrawal situation for Thursday and Friday. It isn’t a sport where a coach (eg Scott Skyles, Chip Kelly) can inexplicably take your guy out of the contest, batter get pinch hit for because of a new pitcher in the game, get shortened rotations on the ice, etc. So what most people have become accustomed to in watching shows and picking lineups is much different. Each golf event is the equivalent of having a 12 game nba slate (120 starters) or 7 game MLB slate.

    The RG guys, stl, gibbathy and devo do a good job of going through the field, but I don’t feel that 1 show is enough time to cover the vast amount of variables in golf.

    Maybe have shows focused specifically towards one topic:
    Course and Course History
    Players and current form versus career.
    Recap coverage to talk about ownership and outcomes of events. This one would help the most people I think.
    GPP and Cash differentiation and why there isn’t as much of a gap as other sports. (Many don’t realize this.)

    That is all I can think of at the moment.

    Sidenote: For the guys who already asked about different statistic comparisons, I am doing that in my Field Ratings each week in the user blog section if you ever want to use it.

    This..

    One 50 minute show devoted to a 4 day long sport is far too little.

    Would like to see some kind of updated weekly PGA injury report. At some point almost every DFS player has been beaten by an early WD during a given tournament weekend. Unlike other sports there is virtually nothing regarding player injuries. Maybe something like probable or doubtful would be a huge help.

    I see a lot of stats given, but I’m not exactly sure how to quantify those stats while doing research. I recently had this problem with MLB and after learning how to quantify a lot of advanced metrics, I’ve seen a vast improvement in my game. I would like to learn how to do the same with Golf.

    FWIW I would love to be able to do this in NASCAR too.

  • steelcitydozer

    Call cbs or nbc and get us some damn tv coverage of the event .not shot tracker that sucks my left nut

  • SnowShark

    I know there are far less touts in golf vs other sports but an accuracy report based on rankings would be cool with a once a month show reviewing what stats helped each person make their decisions. Golf is easily one of the noisiest sports in DFS making hard to concern when someone is blowing smoke and when someone actually makes an informed decision based on knowledge and information.

    The other thing would be some type of bargain bin write-up, since people are always looking for the scrubs to go along with the stars.

    Hockey is without a doubt one of the most boring (watchable) sports on the planet, just a tick behind NASCAR and LoL. But, putting that aside, if people were interested in NHL DFS on the same level that they are with NBA DFS, you’d see that reflected. I understand the current complaints of the newest form of the NBA, I’m right there with you, but from a fantasy perspective, it’s perfect.

    You think hockey is the most boring watchable sport. so you love the nba where everyone travels almost every play and teams put up 100 ppg . wow exciting
