    Vincent Whaley a free square this week for cash games. 7/7 and all in the top 36 in his last 7 tournaments. If you go one more he is 8/8 with a top 50 added in. $6200 on DK, horrible misprice.

    Speaking of that, I didn’t enter last week. I did pretty bad, but is there anyway my single mili lineup could count (didn’t even cash). No worries at all if not, just figured I’d ask.

    Sadly, I dont feel I can, even tho I want too, especially for those that are loyal players/contributors like you.

    I make a pledge to everyone, If its possible to add someone to the Happy Meal Cup contest in any week. I will do it for anyone who has entered at least half of the contests so far. You need to notify me as soon as possible. preferably before contest starts and not after the first person who tees off finishes 9 holes. No guarantees but an honest look into the situation and flexibility to do right by all involved. It works with everything above board, and people know and see.

    as an example I put myself in a not good position last week. When I finally made a team to fit into the $0 free birdie contest (I won $10). I purposely didnt change my Happy Meal dummy LU. I didnt think I should make any benefit on a week I possibly screwed up so many. I would have finished 5th. In the whole scheme of things this is a contest for giggles and grins and getting all of them to play is the #1 goal.

    Does anybody else count 14 weeks of dfs golf left? My achievements show 13 weeks left and I count 14 on the schedule. I missed two days of the ironman and am currently hoping for no rain shortened tournaments as I only have 1 day to spare. Here is the remaining schedule. The Palmetto Championship at Congaree is a new event and I’m not sure there will be dfs golf that week.

    There will definitely be DFS for the Congaree as it’s a normal stroke play event and we’ll have DFS just like every other first time event/course.

    For Ironman, DK usually allows you to miss a few days up to a week and still hit the achievement.

    I also think when they determined the denominator for days played, they had not yet developed the code for the partners-Zurich event (as this was first year we could play that event) so that gave us a bonus 4 days to count they did not originally factor in.

  • 1971hof

    Thanks I hope you are right. I forgot about the partners event counting this year for the first time.

    Still at a loss how Phil one. Good for him! I still think he thought this was a Champions event lol

    Why don’t you also ask DK if you can win the milly contest —maybe they will change the rules for you —-SMH——everybody gets a trophy society

    …after 9 holes ?—if someone has entered 1/2 ?——-why not make rules and just follow them !—- bending rules is not a good look—-way 2 much gray area——-sounds like DK and all the collusion smoke——-WHY SHOULD ANYBODY get to add or change a lineup after a trny starts

    good point but to illustrate my point, we will look at the situation when it arises, then make a decision. If its obvious that cheating is not suspected, then we will add the LU to the cup standings. The main concern is to let people know if shit happens with regards to the happy meal cup, we can do something to alleviate concerns but time is of the essence.

    Most people here abide by “sportsmanship” ethics. DK is responsible for DK contests and I am responsible for the Happy Meal Cup contests.

    If you feel things are run unfairly, please let me know, If you want to take charge, Please let me know.

    edit: you know I read your reply on Hautalak. amazing that I didnt read into it what you did. If I never had interactions with the gentleman, maybe i could have seen what you saw. but my guess is, he wanted to keep 100% participation, he didnt do any good this week so it wouldnt really effect anybody elses scoring. I think you were on target with your reply to me. I hope and believe, I will be entirely fair about what I do. The entered 1/2 part…your right, anybody is better, but damn, I dont want to jump thru hoops for someone who enters 1-2 contests in the year. This is the reason for the grey area, I dont know what might arise, what the circumstances will be and I cant make rules for what I dont know, This is a participation contest and lets participate.

    Would love to know what Bryson did/said, whether the interview bomb was intentional or inadvertent, and whether Brooks was just that annoyed with his presence or being goaded. Either way it is hilarious, and those two in a final pairing at US Open would be as good of an encore to Phil’s miracle as any.

    I think I just did . Everybody knows the rules upfront —-if someone gets to skirt them—-that gives the look of collusion and cheating— whether there is or not—-why have rules if they are not adhered to. Why even put yourself in a precarious position of the look of impropriety. Even if the contest is beyond reproach ——why just ask for trouble——why not make it easy on yourself. Meaning everybody plays by the same rules———and no thanks to the offer

    It IS hilarious. It stems from Bryson’s slow play in the golf media circles about 2 yrs ago and Brooks said something about it. Then Bryson commented: “Tel him to say it to my face”…. then balooned. Everyone though Bryson wanted more distance with his transfomation…. NO…he waned to beat Brook’s ass.

    Last week was a very unusual and confusing HM week like we never have seen before with two HM’s and not knowing which to enter or if either one would fill even.

    Tim said early on if you got into either HM or BtF contest he could follow he would count those scores.

    Unfortunately my best LU was in the HM that didn’t run and my worst finished 98th only missing last place to a couple teams who didn’t try very hard lol

    Unfortunate it happened on a Major double-point week but I’m fine with the results and ready to tee it up again this week as usual :)

    Tim is the best man for this job and we will never hear a “your fired” from anyone here

  • jsw3ent

    There are hundreds/thousands that read this forum—-yet every week it seems a struggle to fill the HM——maybe people feel the same about rules—-as evidenced by the struggle to fill

    I had a good FD team this week——can I enter it in the HM——-oh wait I haven’t entered 1/2——different rules for different players

    :) thank you and I appreciate you keeping me on my toes.

    DK rules pretty much cover things. and LU changes are not part of the equation.

    LU additions not relating to any money is the issue here.

    I could agree wholeheartedly to add some LU’s to the list for a variety of reasons. Here are 3

    example 1, gone on vacation couldnt get into contest. gave me the LU pre contest start.
    example 2, entered Happy meal forgot to enter LU’s, contest went live 15 min ago, none of my golfers are on the course.
    example 3, the creator of the contest screwed things up, posted a message that said delete something, I dont know what went on but can you use the H2H LU I played in the league lobby

  • BIF

    Still a douche move by Bryson to walk on camera behind Brooks during an interview and to do it in metal spikes on a cement/ashphalt path where the noise would be heard.

    Thanks titanhawks,

    humble pie, for me. I knew those problems were happening when I got back into it on Sat. I should sponsor a happy meal just for that mistake. I am worse on myself for stupid mistakes than anyone on the forum could be. Not that i lose sleep over it, but I did my fair share of swearing at myself.

    You were not the only person with that type of story. Herff won and cashed $1.80, This happened once before and BIF got the raw end. I coulda moved up the standings with a 5th place finish. All I can do is apologize.

    Again allowing the human element so to speak——-reminds me up FD dropping lowest scores——or contests that last all season, but drops the 5 lowest scores for the season.

    I suppose everyone on here are grown (ADULTS). I FORGOT to enter/gone on vacation——are EXCUSES—-the entitlement /everyone gets a trophy society—-I demand you change the rules for me and my incompetence . Is ANYONE EVER held responsible for anything nowadays ? An excuse for everything society

    When there are no hard rules the human elements are questioned——-why 15 minutes—-why not 23 minutes—-all 4 in the group birdies 2 eagles from the next group I promise that was the 6 I was gonna pick—I have played in 48% of contests not 50% —but we shot pool last night—-I thought we were buddies——I only missed 15 minutes by 3 minutes——come on give me a break—-I am a grown man but I overslept. ———————-I FORGOT LOLSMH-you can’t be serious———————————— If there are no HARD RULES—-how can people really know the playing field is level.

    You may be beyond reproach——-but asking people to just take your word on example 1 and 2——or just believe you ——are unnecessary and could be solved by just having hard rules and no gray areas
