With a fresh new look, the official fantasy game of the DP World Tour returns this week ahead of the first major championship of the year at Augusta National.
Fantasy DP World Tour info
As this is a brand new game, all new and returning players will need to create a new account.
The game allows fans around the world to compete against each other by predicting the top 6 players in each event week of the season, and players can now register in the game to make their selections for that week’s Masters Tournament.
The rules are simple: Each week, you’ll be asked to select a new team of six golfers for each tournament in the DP World Tour season, which you can do from around noon (BST) each Monday. You will then have until the first scheduled tee time to make changes to your six-man squad.
Once you have chosen your six golfers, you must designate one of your choices as captain (their points will be doubled). Only competing players will be available for selection, and without a budget, you can pick any six golfers you want.
What’s new for 2022? This year, all golfers in the tournament will be eligible to be selected – not just DP World Tour members – but there will be a restriction on team selection this year, called “Selection Cap”.
The draft cap prevents you from picking top players more than a few times per season, allowing you to pick DP World Tour members up to three times per season, and non-DP World Tour members up to twice per season .
Once you’ve reached the maximum number of picks for a player, that player will be greyed out and unavailable, so choose strategically and wisely! One thing to note is that each week your team will be cleared, so you must choose a new team before each tournament.
This ensures that you have six active golfers on your team each week to maximize your points potential, but if you forget, a team of six players will be randomly selected for you to score points. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Here’s what you need to know about the new Fantasy game.
