It's January 1, 2021. My goodness. The PGA Tour season has been upended and honestly, I've haven't followed much, with the exception of Masters week in November. So as I'm sitting at home, pondering how I can benefit from a new year on the calendar, it reminded me of one of my favorite (and maddening!) golf pastimes - Fantasy Golf!! With the odd PGA Tour year and remembering there was a "Fall season" I wasn't sure if I was coming in too late, but it turns out there are some leagues starting in the next few weeks!
I first went to look for one of my favorite fantasy golf web sites, www.buzzfantasyleagues.com. I didn't remember my password but I found my way back in and was happy to see the free league is starting at the Sentry Tournament of Champions (Jan 7), so sign up now! They also have their "Make the Cut" Challenge. You pay $4.95 for 1 entry or $7.95 for 2, and all you do is pick one player that must make the cut each week to stay alive. You only get to pick players once, so there is some interesting strategies. I'm in for 2!! I haven't played for a few years, but I remember it being fun! They also have a platform for private leagues, too.
I added the NBC Sport Fantasy App on my phone (Sports Predictor) but there is not fantasy golf set up yet...all it says is it will be back in 2021.
PGATour.com also has Free Fantasy Golf - their next segment (Segment 2) starts also with the Sentry Tournament of Champions. You can have up to 3 different teams with your login.
So I'm in for 2 leagues so far, Buzz and PGA Tour, but I'll be ready to into NBC Sports/Golf Channel when they get up and running.
Of course you always find fantasy golf on the daily betting sites like Draft Kings and Fan Duel. I think they occasionally have free games, but these are mostly betting sites.
If you know of any other free leagues that would be fun to join, please share!!
Let's see what 2021 Fantasy Golf has in store for us!
I love golf and I love to write, so I can't think of anything better than having a happy place like this to write about golf to my heart's content. Thanks for joining me!
