FantasyDraft this week announced a format change to its PGA contests along with a minor scoring change. The move comes just in time for the heart of the PGA season, including the PGA Championship set to tee off on May 11th.

About the FantasyDraft PGA Changes

The changes announced this week includes a major change and a low impact change.

DFS okaters draft FantasyDraft PGA lineups with seven roster spots. Previously, all of those drafted golfers accrued points. With the format change, only the top 6 point scorers on the player’s roster will be counted towards total points. This change will allow the worse performances to get thrown out, which will minimize variance for all players.

In addition to the new format, FantasyDraft will also lower the number of points for holes in one. Instead of awarding 20 points, DFS players will receive 5 points when a golfer on their roster achieves the feat. This move will minimize bonuses for a rare event which tends to reward luck versus skill.

FantasyDraft PGA Contests Introduced in 2016

FantasyDraft introduced PGA contests last year, which became the fifth unique sport to be offered on FantasyDraft and the first outside of the four major sports. Check out the FantasyDraft PGA scoring rules here, which has been updated to account for the changes announced this week.

One interesting item of note is that FantasyDraft continues to disallow PGA contests to New York residents despite being for other sports. This is due to a New York Gaming Commission position that currently restricts sports that weren’t available prior to November 2015. FantasyDraft briefly explained their position in a Rotogrinders thread.
