In this Fantasy R2D, you really just need to pick the 6 shortest odds players, and make the favourite captain. More or less, anyway.

The Golf Comp (EB contest?!) is THE true test of skill. Abysmal start from me this year in that one, and stephaniebot just adding salt into the wound Angry

Well, it's what the computer says that counts. I don't have an opinion of my own as such, but factors like tiredness are in there as part of the algorithm. I think the issue with Rahm for me is the lack of sample size. Just 37 previous tourns in my db for him. So I need to add in more amateur tournaments, and that's something I'm working on at the moment.

That was not a good week for me. Didn't have Fitzpatrick, he was my 7th man. And Fleetwood was my captain, when the consensus was Noren. So now almost 2 million off the overall lead.

Well played stephaniebot who was 26th overall for the week. Maybe you're in with a chance for the September prizes? Actually, the monthly prizes seem to be better than the overall prize!

Went for Molinari as captain and left out Grace. 4 million behind the overall leader means I'm out of it now. Had to take some risks though.

Will just try to hold on next week for the win in this league!
