    I estimate 34 weeks and 4 days per week = 136 possible days.
    You can only miss 3 days. I think the matchplay is 5 days, A shortened event is not impossible. It seems like an awfully aggressive Ironman. Is that standard for baseball basketball and hockey?

    It is pretty standard. For example MLB when I played everyday in 2018 had 184 days you could possibly play and the Ironman was set for 180. You pretty much have to play everything possible with only a couple misses to get that one. Two of those days were the garbage All Star game showdown and a stand alone showdown for 1 game coming out of the All Star Break. So you really only could miss 2 days if you didn’t play those two showdown slates.

    Finally made it to Hawaii, when the real season begins.

    I’m going to take advantage of the no cut event to rack up some early Cut Maker Achievements. Might as well get a head start on it. I’ve 20 maxed the Quarter, Large Dime, small dime and plan on having 20 entries in NFL milly Satellites once a couple more new ones appear. Going to make 20 different lineups to avoid a total meltdown if one player WD. I will have one lineup in the Big $8 and the Happy Meal. So 82 entries at a cost of $23. Heck if just one lineup hits a NFL milly ticket, I’ll come out ahead.

    And yea I’m going to go after that Ironman. I’ve hit every ironman in all the other sports, I’m not going to miss out on the golf either.

    Good Luck to everyone in 2020!

    Hope he doesn’t on Yahoo

    I think he (no idea if it is a man or woman) does well there too from what I recall – but I haven’t played there in like a year.

    I have not done the math on the 132 rounds but there is no showdown for the 5 day Match Play so there is 4 days that don’t count

    DK offers games for the alternate event of the PuntaCana the week of the match play so you could still get 5 days that week.

    So by my calculation there should be 34 weeks x 4 days per event for the 136 + 1 extra day since the Match play starts on Wednesday for a grand total of 137 days.

    He’s in my $5 SE so we will see

    Only 14 of 34 are above the minimum $20 there so there are a lot of avenues to take

    Looks like PGATour.com changed how they store data again. Every year they switch it up it seems.

    Found a way around it, but still not sure yet how to automate it.

    I suspect the are pissed at sites making money off of it.

  • titanhawks

    On a side-note;

    PGATOUR.com dropped their one and done game

    Watching MTDurhams OAD post of replacement leagues but nothing there so far

    Hope he doesn’t on Yahoo as I am finally getting to play there from Missouri :)

    Gonna play the $5 SE with the Cup LU game I always could play since it was free

    As for the FantasyDraft I got pissed at them and put myself on the do not play list and never missed them

    Why did you get pissed?

  • kswetnam1342

    What’s up guys? Happy New Year to all!

    Hopefully I can be a little more active on the boards this season.

  • titanhawks

    @noddy said...

    Why did you get pissed?

    they kept offering free-plays near or after lock and would not switch or offer anything for the next day or week so I never gained anything then they got all pissy after I complained then had to zap them; no loss on my part and FD went mostly the same way for me but didn’t have to iggy them but they are dead in the water anyhow

    Only played DK since until Yahoo just opened to us in Missouri so all is well for me :)

    @titanhawks said...

    didn’t have to iggy them

    What is this reference?

  • titanhawks

    @smallANDflaccid said...

    What is this reference?

    FanDuel offering freeplays near or after lock not realizing I’m not on the internet 24/7 like they expect me to be

    How about tomorrow or the next day?

    DK gives you ONE year from the day tiks they give out

  • smallANDflaccid

    I just noticed that Fantasy Draft is only letting me bet $100 a month now wihtout paying for some sort of membership?
    Is the idea that whatever flat fee you pay is going to be less than the rake they would otherwise charge?

    The flat fee they charge is much less than the rake charged on DK and FD.

    I know I’m a hypocrite but must post my west coast swing grievance. College basketball! Every freaking time golf is supposed to start at 2:00, there will be second rate basketball on my TV for an additional 20 minutes before the golf comes on. Start them earlier or cut out half time.

    It isn’t a west coast swing issue; it’s an NCAAB issue as their games are on the same time we get early golf coverage on Golf Channel and then when we are supposed to switch over to network coverage, I (like you) am stuck watching the last 4 minutes of Indiana vs Michigan (or similar) and hoping they don’t foul and then praying it doesn’t go to OT.

    Unfortunately we all have to suffer through that until the first week of March when the conference tournaments are over.

    Happy New Year fellas! Bring on the new decade … threw a few lineups in for fun but can’t wait for next week already. The full field no cut golf layoff is brutal … bit my wife and kids love it 😂 … well for 2019 I sucked at the start … hit a good groove in the middle … and got torched on the last leg. I noticed I did best in the 120-ish fields with a cut so I need to figure out how to better handle the larger fields and no cuts were my worst by far. Hoping 1 year wiser will bring good tidings for 2020 and wishing all of you a successful and prosperous year ahead. I want to see this forum break records for tournament takedowns and winnings! GL All

    Welcome back stars – good luck and Happy New Year 👍

    Anyone know the best way to earn Masters Milly Maker tickets? Is it just the qualifiers after NFL is over? I seem to remember some people having 20+ tickets but I missed the boat last year.

    Waaayyy less. 95% of my action is on Fantasydraft, but I’m a cash player.

    Just check the satellites and qualifiers tab/filter for each slate. Typically there will be some available every week once nfl is over and they stop doing nfl satellites

    Whats up guys, Happy New Years and New Golf Season to everyone. Planning on starting things off with a bang with Ryan Palmer as my highest owned golfer this week, what could possibly go wrong.

  • al0e_neill

    Speaking of data changes from the PGATour site, anyone know how to get this result in either excel or SQL Server? The output format from DK has been driving me crazy now for 2 years and now I’m on a mission to transform it into something easier to work with.

    Table 1:
    Rank : EntryId : Lineup : FPTS
    1 : 12345 : Player1 Player2 Player3 : FPTS

    Into…

    Table 2:
    Rank : EntryId : Player
    1 : 12345 : Player1
    1 : 12345 : Player2
    1 : 12345 : Player3

    Everything in me feels like this should be easy to do but for the life of me, I can’t figure it the hell out.

    Side note … I will be at the Winter Classic … how they got this game at the Cotton Bowl in Texas is beyond my comprehension but a nice little treat that may not happen again in my lifetime. Gonna be some rough ice

    What did they change? I usually just use their json files for most everything recent (leaderboard and stats ones). Did they stop those?
