Fantasy Golf: The 2015 Live Draft Results

"You are looking live at a
lot of middle-aged guys
wearing pleated pants!"
Welcome to the inaugural Fantasy Golf Report draft night webcast coming to you live from the Greene Turtle in Towson, MD. For the next hour, we will have between ten and twelve of the keenest fantasy golf minds in the vicinity of the 21204 zip code (depending on who shows-up and whether you include me in that description) picking six players* each to compete for the remainder of the 2015 PGA Tour season. Total combined prize money determines the overall winner with bonuses for majors, WGC events and the Players. This will be the 19th season for a league that would barely eek out BronyCon in a coolness contest which is why we do it in a bar where nobody knows who we are (no offense to the Greene Turtle . . . it's just that our days of 64 oz cocktails called the Hell in the Shell have passed us by).

Footnote


* We do a modified snake draft where the guy who picks last gets the first pick in the 2nd, 3rd and 5th rounds. This takes some of the sting out of not getting Rory.
