More from European Tour on twitter...

Look out for the launch in the next couple of weeks, with the first event being the Masters!

This week I took delivery of a set of Titleist 716 AP1 irons and bag for last year's efforts. They look and feel fantastic, although I haven't actually tried hitting balls with them (that's usually when things go wrong for me)!

respect El Bandido

I managed a weekly win (2 years ago) and have also finished 2nd and 5th in weekly comps.

Flirted with the leaderboard on occasions but managed to miss entering when on holiday for last 2 years..doh

Going to try and give it a real good go this year

El Bandido please, sewter, or EB Whoops

Agree about the teams being hidden, that's the way it should be.

Not really a fan of the other changes, but then I would say that!

Very poor start for me last week. Well played Mealiff!

old applejack - is that you in 5th place? Surprised you didn't do better with that team name!

Trying to pick my team for Open de Espana, but I'm getting "parsererror" Angry

Was hoping the new site would solve this kind of thing. Currently have random picks with Lorenzo-Vera as captain! Cry
By:

When: 13 Apr 16 14:18
Also getting parse error
I assume we stick with what we are given until fixed (maybe a good thing)
kjeldsen is my captain another K !!
By:
El Bandido
When: 13 Apr 16 20:12
Just tried it again a bit earlier, and there was no more parse error. So I picked my team and captain/vc.

Then it took me to a page where I need to watch a video to unlock the "Cut Replacement" feature.

Video keeps buffering, and eventually it aborts. On my 7th attempt now. This is taking ages just to pick my fantasy team. Jordan Spieth could have played Amen Corner and painted my spare room already!
By:

When: 13 Apr 16 20:21
none of your issues for me EB

changed teams and captain  earlier and just now with no problems
By:
El Bandido
When: 13 Apr 16 20:31
Finally it worked!

With the Cut Replacement, you just get a random player if one of yours misses the cut (but not the Captain or VC). Seems a bit silly really. So I had to watch a video of players talking about super heroes!
By:
sewter lives again
When: 14 Apr 16 14:10
Cut Replacement immediately into action and likely to be very busy this weekend

especially for the 71% who picked Sergio
By:
El Bandido
When: 14 Apr 16 20:13
Yes, but it won't replace Sergio if he's your captain or VC. Only the other 4 can be replaced.
By:
sewter lives again
When: 16 Apr 16 21:15
wow that was a fantastic cut replacement furelli

he could win it!!
By:
furrelli
When: 18 Apr 16 11:05
Parse error :)  thought that was jus me...... kept playing up all week but finally got a team settled.

Not sure how the cut replacement works..... I know I dinny pick Thomas! Not in a million years would I!!

Think the capt & VC malarky are gonna be key players this season, had Joost in my team but not as one of them...... cost me a few bob

dont worry too much at the moment scarlet

imo this competition will be won and lost on your captain/vice captain's performances in the forthcoming Majors the weekly comps till then are just tinkering around
By:
El Bandido
When: 04 May 16 09:15
Last year I didn't do particularly well in the majors, but fortunately none of them were won by European Tour players. Same with 3 of the 4 WGC's, and I had Lowry in the other one. This year, Willett has already slipped through the net!

I'm sticking with my gameplan. For me, Willett was not a percentage play. He wasn't among the 6 shortest odds in my book, or in the market. Some might argue otherwise, but he certainly had no business being Captain or VC.

I'm continuing with my strategy of playing the percentages for now. But later in the year, if I'm still chasing, I will gamble on a few in the bigger tournaments.

Yes you have to play the video at least. You don't actually have to watch it though Wink

dropped to 724 thanks to a very average week but the prize money is low so not many big overall changes to the leaderboard

Irish Open and BMW PGA in following 2 weeks will be a different ball game

Wang was my captain this week so I should claw back a bit. Bigger events coming up!

European Tour also announced a new Daily Fantasy game:
