    Everyone at DraftKings is happy to announce that we are re-introducing our two-day Weekend Golf set for Rounds 3 and 4 during the Open Championship.

    For those of you who are familiar with our past Weekend Golf offerings, scoring is unchanged. It’s the same game you already know and love, with a full assortment of single-round Showdown sets from the 19th through the 22nd alongside Weekend Golf. Our idea was to use Golf’s 3rd major at Carnoustie as a good opportunity for players to experience both of the game modes, side to side.

    Be on the lookout for Weekend Golf contests to start appearing in the DK lobby on the morning of Thursday the 19th!

    Thank you! But no position points makes me sad.

    position points are bad for showdown and they’re bad for weekend too. It opens things up way more when you don’t have narrow your range of options to the upper portion of the leaderboard for the free points. I really wish they would get rid of the position points for Rd 4 showdown or change them to the nascar style of a change in position instead of raw finish since it make it real tough to play the bottom half of the leaderboard

    I just think you should be rewarded if you pick a guy in 40th and he gets to the top 5 over the weekend. That should matter to in my opinion. I think picking the winner over two days should matter as well somehow.

    It does matter in that if a guy is in 40th and plays well enough to move up into 5th he is going to be one of the highest point scoring players in the entire field since he is moving up and passing everyone. There is no need to give position point bonuses on top of this so 1 or 2 guys score so many more points than the rest of the field you automatically lose by not having them. By adding position points when the feilid is already separated by 10+ shots all your doing is cutting the pool of usable players from 70+ to 30-40 since there is never a logical reason to play the bottom 20 spots due to them having to do something out of this world to catch up to the free points the guys who started up top will probably end up with.

    Jumped in for the weekend. Should be interesting to see how it goes. Glad to see no postional points.

    Showdowns are way more fun than the weekend format for guys who are looking for “daily” fantasy action. I don’t play the full 4 day tourney for the same reason. I don’t want to sit and watch a losing team. I prefer a turn around on a winner or loser in one day and move on to the next team
