    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!

    Got the invite STL… the Joes are looking to take down the Pros this week!

  • Shlune

    ? for the Pros and Joes who have already played……just curious mostly, and maybe us joes can learn from it to start evening the overall record up with the pros!

    …..how are you guys teaming up to make the lineup, agreeing on who to play etc? Are you guys skyping and getting all into it, talking each day about who you like or dis-like etc…… or just splitting the salary in half and picking 3 golfers each?

    I am up on week 31

    I said Hi to my partner and we play a $1 H2H each week.
    My plan is to finish my handicapping by mid Tue and send it to Him.
    I want him to pick his team first then look at my list and use whatever he likes.
    LOL, I dont care if he only uses the ones we agree on. He can say they were my idea.
    (edit) I am a max entry player, my single bullet’s are sometimes suspect, OK more than sometimes

    I got a great partner.

  • mccoolio

    Medlund and I have been playing against each other for a few weeks..We have also been communicating through messages on here about who we like in each field for building our cores around. It has been pretty successful so far I’d say. Just having good dialogue and having another perspective on things has been beneficial. Needless to say, but I think we’ve settled on a winner this week!
