    Hey all!!

    With the start of the new PGA Tour season, we are going to try something fun – a Pros vs Joes Golf contest.

    Here is how we will do it: Notorious and I will combine thoughts to put up a cash game lineup. Each week, we will take on two random RG members to play our squad. We will do a free H2H on DraftKings with you.

    If the Pros win…. we get nothing.
    If the Joes win, you get bragging rights and RG SWAG!

    Get on the waiting list by replying in this thread. First come, first served, starting THIS WEEK!

    Remember, it’s a 2 v. 2 challenge with 1 lineup, so sign up with a partner or else you will be put together with another solo person so you will get to know them!

    Most importantly, let’s have some fun! These were really fun when some RG folks did 2 v. 2 in MLB.

    SCHEDULE

    Note: If there is enough interest, I will change the schedule so that we are doing two of these per week. There are around 40-45 weeks to fill for the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Season, so keep the sign ups coming.

    Note 2: If your DK user name differs from what I have in this post, please let me know. I will be sending the H2H invite to the first person listed, unless I can’t find their user name. Be sure to reach out to your partner if you don’t know them so you can communicate!

    Congrats to the Joes for whipping our butts this week. Could both of you send me a PM with your name, address, and shirt size for me to add you to the next order list?

    Both teams of winners will be added to the next order that is sent.

    Thanks!

    Hopefully this isn’t an indication of how your golf GPPs have been going!

  • timusbr

    Notorious and STL,

    I am a DFS golf fanatic and on RG way too much. Without contests to view, I AM LOSING INTEREST in your contest. If you post a contest link you would generate conversation weekly………:) i guarantee it :)

    Bummer, It was bound to happen…..

    Joe’s, if you see this. PM your partner, say Hi, we are all RGers and this is a semi-social place.

    I did that with my partner and we started play a friendly $1 H2H every week. If someone doesnt reply and is not active and your week is about to start, I got a few names that would love to be your partner. I am sure the Pro’s have a list too. LOL some would be jealous of someone sneaking ahead of the list. but I say lets play and kick those pros butts

    All right everyone, I have updated the schedule for the rest of the PGA Tour season.

    We had a few extra sign-ups, so there are two contests in each of the final two weeks.

    Also, one person is left over that had signed up without a partner, and I can add him along with ONE more person if someone wants to play. I’ll add you in to the Dell Technologies week. First come, first served.
