Would you like to win $1,000,000 watching the Master’s. Sounds good to me, maybe it does for you, too.
The fee to pick your own team with the chance to win $1M is $20 – not a bad deal.
There’s been some chatter about Fantasy golf the last few weeks in a number of Google+ Groups I’m involved with. I used to play a little bit. I actually won $100 the very first time I played but slid downhill and lost some interest in it.
I have heard about DraftKings before but, again, was not that interested in being involved. They’re tagline says, “Fantasy Sports for Cash”
They do all sports — basketball, hockey, soccer, baseball, mixed martial arts and on and on — I’m primarily interested in golf and when you go into the “Lobby” where all contests are listed — in the upper left you can filter on golf only, for example.
Really all you do is sign up, add some $$$ to your account (so you can be in the game) and then pick your team.
You have $50,000 cap for your team and obviously the frontrunners to win cost more fantasy money than others. You can see my teams below.
One thing to keep in mind is that the weather is supposed to be iffy (as in rain) this weekend at Augusta so you might consider some “shorter” hitters for your team, like Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk, Luke Donald, etc.
I just did it for fun. It’s nice to have a little “skin in the game.” You never know and I bet you can pick as solid a team as anyone.
Note: Contest ENDS at 6 AM on Thursday — opening day for round 1. You only have a couple days — better get going!
And, please, please, please let me know if you are a winner of any denomination. That would be super-cool to hear!
Go for it: Turn $20 into $1,000,000!!!
