      2019 DraftKings FFWC Finalist

    Edit: The MillyMaker is Full! Any of the links below will now take you to a different tournament that is still open for registration. The 5 Year Anniversary prizes only count towards the Milly Maker.

    Five years ago this month RotoGrinders opened to the public. A whopping 27 members signed up that month. Things started a bit slow but my how we’ve grown.

    We want to celebrate with some big 5-Year Anniversary Promos and DraftKings stepped up to the plate. We’ve got nearly $12,000 in Added Prizes for RotoGrinders Members playing in Thursday’s PGA Milly Maker!

    If you’re not yet playing on DraftKings, click here to get started!

    RotoGrinders members in the Open Championship Millionaire Maker on Thursday will be eligible for these additional prizes:

    Highest finishing RG Member: $5300 Ticket into the 8/2 FBWC Qualifier giving away 5 FWBC Seats ($292,500 In Guaranteed Prizes)

    2nd-5th Highest Finishing RG Members: $1000 Ticket into an upcoming FBWC Qualifier

    6th-20th Highest Finishing RG Members: $100 Ticket into a $1000 FBWC Ticket Satellite

    OG Bonus – Highest Finishing RG member that registered for RG in our first year, before the end of July 2011: $1000 Ticket into an upcoming FBWC Qualifier.

    Important:

    -To limit the impact of multi-entry, only lineups numbered 1-50 count towards this promo for any user.

    -You must have your DraftKings Screen name entered into your RotoGrinders profile by Wednesday 7/15 at 6 PM ET to be eligible for any of these added prizes.

    -One prize per member, except for the OG Bonus. OG Bonus can be won in addition to the main prize list.

    I took a trip down memory lane looking through the early registrations. I wanted to give some shoutouts to guys that joined in the very beginning, July 2010, and helped this community get off the ground:

    Buffalo66: 7/6/10
    Tippy: 7/12/10
    PrimeTime420: 7/19/2010 (original #1 in Rankings)
    kcearnal: 7/20/2010 (got married and disappeared from DFS, but came to first RG party)
    beermakersfan: 7/22/2010 (before he was on the back cover of every season long Fantasy Football magazine and featured on ESPN)
    headchopper: 7/27/2010 (5 years of great snarky posts)

    When should we expect the announcement? Not trying to rush anyone, but I can’t keep myself from checking periodically. It would be nice to know if it is going to be tonight or tomorrow.

    And last but not least, the $1000 ticket OG Bonus goes to MikeDeatWorld, who plays on DraftKings as BigTymer.

    He registered on 7/23/2011 and finished in 3114th place.

    What was the lowest score that won a prize here? I did not link my account (stupidly) but am curious if I would have won anything here with my 472

    472 wouldn’t of had a chance.

  • Dunzor

    so I read Zach Johnson’s own words (which appear below) leading me to fade him completely…. guess that logic didn’t quite pay off….

    In Zach’s own words:

    “[St. Andews] is my least favorite in the rotation. I say that and I love that tournament and I still like St. Andrews. That’s how much I love that tournament. I think St. Andrews is terrific but it’s my least favorite… “I feel like it’s one where you just gotta hit it left and you gotta hit it 290 in the air and it just doesn’t favor me. I say that and I’m telling you right now it’s my favorite tournament to play in and I like St. Andrews. It’s just not my favorite of the other ones I’ve played. They’re all so good. I mean Muirfield is phenomenal. My first was Troon and I thought that was terrific. Turnberry is great. Lytham is tremendous. Carnoustie is brutally hard, but it’s great. That’s my rationale there.”

    Congrats to the winners

    I had him on 5 of 10 teams but at the last hour I switched him after listening to the PGA After Dark podcast. Live and learn – the stats and history at the course didn’t look good but in this case recent form won out.

    Whoa…I’m pretty stoked! Thanks Cal/DK!
