Strategy & Tips
This game is a marathon and not a sprint.
Remember, this contest is a 24 week marathon made up of 6 sprints. So pick your golfers accordingly. Save some good golfers and mulligans for later in the season. Use your mulligans wisely. Obviously, using someone like Rory McIlroy a 3rd time is often a good use of a mulligan.
Make sure you select golfers who are playing in the tournament.
Make sure you check the PGA tournament field and other RGFGC Resources before submitting your lineup. Golfers listed in the lineup drop-down boxes are not necessarily playing in upcoming tournament as our site simply lists all golfers. Golfers can withdraw at the last minute, so it's never a bad idea to check Roto World Player News or the PGA site for any updates to the tournament field.
Be careful when picking golfers with the last name.
When picking a golfer with the same last name (e.g. Johnson), make sure you pick the correct one. For example, Dustin Johnson vs. Zach Johnson. The Molinari brothers (Edoardo & Francesco) are another common mix-up. When selecting a golfer in the drop-down, it's easy to accidentally select the first golfer with the same last name instead of the golfer you intended. After submitting your lineup, be sure to take 10 seconds to confirm your lineup selections via the confirmation email or weekly Results page.
Use your free Saturday sub (3rd round).
Don't forget you can sub 1 golfer with another after the 2nd round for free. If a golfer doesn't make the cut, it's a no-brainer. If one of your guys is not in the top 10 or 20, that's often a no-brainer too. Entering a sub on Saturday does not count as a mulligan -- unless the golfer you're picking up is being used for the 3rd time. But remember, any golfer you start will get you 2 times earnings whereas any golfer picked up as a sub will only get you 1 times earnings.
Learn how to use our website.
Our website is very easy to use and makes playing our game a cinch. The website will keep track of all golfer usages for each team. Most people probably know this, but on the Lineup drop-downs, if you type the first letter of a golfer's last name, it will take you right there. Type the letter again to advance to the next golfer. Tables on every page can be sorted if you click on the column heading. On the weekly Results page, if you mouse-over a team name, you will see the owner's name. Or for completed tournaments, mouse-over a golfer's name to see what place he finished in. On the Clubhouse page, if you mouse-over an owner name, you will see their team name(s).
