    Hey just getting my feet wet here…have had some success and some failure weeks…wondering who what where people start for their research. Is there any thought or correlation between Thursday and Friday start times or front back nine or is that looking to much into it…any suggestions helpful!

    I don’t think it’s looking too much into it. As we saw two weeks ago, when the weather is being difficult, tee times can have a huge outcome on thursday/friday results.

    Thanks huitcinq! Where is a good place…other than PGA…ton find any more detailed info and stats regarding starting times and player tendencies?

  • huitcinq

    Honestly I’m gonna wait till I become an actual profitable PGA player before giving out advice lol, I don’t wanna be the guy who acts like an expert while he’s actually losing money. This weekend is the fifth PGA event I’ve played.

    Have you read Notorious’ beginner’s golf guide? Good place to start.

    sometimes in golf, based on weather, or if you’re putting on poa annua greens, time does matter. if a report says extreme wind in the morning on thursday, and then expected extreme wind in afternoon on friday, you have an extreme disadvantage for those guys. but you know, weather reports can be wrong.
    as far as research goes. always check rotoworld and twitter for possible withdrawals on players. follow every golfer on twitter. go to the pga website. get to know every statistic and every players strengths and weaknesses. a site i subscribe to and its worth it, is ‘golfstats’. i also love a couple of blogs ‘thefantasygolf’ and ‘golfstrat’
    every tournament is different and presents different strategies. golf is tough. even the best golfers miss the cut sometimes.

    Awesome info guys. Thanks! And yes I have read notos golf guide. ..actually first thing think was around allstar break..lol..and have been hooked ever since. Even got out to the Cadillac last week. Couple mc this week bit onwards and upwards…looking forward to Arnold tourney next week

  • evil333

    And gord thanks I am def going to look into those sites/stats/blogs..

    Hey u guys like playing better on dk or victiv or another site?

  • huitcinq

    I like Victiv a lot better. No arbitrary win bonus, and having the 2 subs makes for a much more enjoyable experience as one or two guys missing the cut won’t decimate your lineup. Plus it makes for much more interesting lineup construction. I gave up playing on PGA on DK altogether actually, though I’ll make an appearance at the millionaire maker.

    If you’re unsure about Victiv you should read this: https://www.victiv.com/daily-fantasy-golf-making-victivs-pga-product/

    If I seem like a total homer it’s cause I want more people to play haha.

    For someone new I think Victiv would give you a better overall fantasy PGA experience…imo

  • gordmania

    i like both sites. both present different strategy. i’m hoping victiv offers a nice year end tournament where you must qualify to enter.

  • ron214

    That is excellent advice. I appreciate your honesty. Sometimes you get guys blowing smoke. With that said, EVIL33, I google. I try to be somewhat specific. For example try “2015 MASTERS DFS ADVICE
    Basically, I do a lot of google searches and check out the websites until I find a few that I like. That’s the best advice I can offer.

  • regns08

    I prefer dk, victiv seems like a complete craps shoot.

    You must not consider a hole-in-one bonus and arbitrary finish bonuses as a crapshoot. You may just be suffering from variance.

    ummmm

    are you serious

    lmao

  • dncolonna

    In regards to the early/late starts i’d say don’t look too much into it. If there is weather coming through it’s going to effect everyone, but there is no way to really know what side is going to end up having the better draw.

    As for the DK v Victiv comparison i’d say try them both and figure out which you like better, it’s a matter of personal preference. If you want to chase a potential big score DK is your place. If you want to just get your feet wet and Victiv is a great place to start because the 5/7 structure allows for a miss or two that won’t completely derail a lineup.

  • regns08

    How is finishing position a crap shoot? You know what the points are ahead of time, there is going to be luck in everything, it is impossible to create a system without luck. You can actually get odds on finishing position.

    Picking 7 players and only playing your top five scores is the very definition of a crap shoot.

    Draftkings just has a really good balance, do you not think you should be rewarded for a hole in one or a bfr?

    Victiv would be ok if they didn’t have best 5 out of 7 though, until that day comes I will just play the majors and take the overlay when it is there.

  • huitcinq

    You honestly think predicting a hole in one is anything other than a crapshoot?

    This is not a subjective issue. It’s a very straightforward question with a very simple solution.

    Top 5 scores out of 7 favours the more skilled player over the average player, period. Think of it this way: Your DFS outcome is always weighted by the quality of your picks and the variance of the sport. With subs, the ratio of quality:variance on the outcome is greater than without subs.

  • Sharpljp

    it is what it is and its all good

  • Sharpljp

    But I’ve always wondered if there’s information on the web that addresses specific course needs pertaining to selecting DFS golfers. For example, is the rough brutal? Is driving distance the “X” factor? Is short game or scrambling paramount to winning at the course?

    Once i find that information, I’ll be winning and then buying a boat.

    You might have that backwards. If the leader 3 putts a green on Victiv, you dont lose 700 places.

  • huitcinq

    You also don’t ruin your entire week’s work if one guy misses his eight foot putt on 18 on Friday and misses the cut by 1 cough Rory Sabbatini cough

    You get rewarded for a hole in one on victiv as well.

    That is because Victiv doesn’t get 700 players in any format.

    You missed the point, but flame on….

  • regns08

    No I said there is an element of luck, it is impossible for there not to be.

  • huitcinq

    No you said Victiv is more of a crapshoot than DK, which is objectively false.
