It’s easy - draft 10 golfers and you’re done.

Slow Best Ball drafts will give you more time to pick between the hours of 2AM and 5AM EST. This is designed to protect you against auto-picks during nighttime hours.

Example 1: If you go on the clock at 10PM EST, your pick will be 11 hours (Add 3 hours between 2AM and 5AM) and you will be auto-picked at 9AM EST.

Example 2: If you go on the clock at 3AM EST, your pick will be 10 hours (Add two hours for the time between 3AM and 5AM) and will be auto-picked at 1PM EST.

  3. Complete the 10 round draft.
  4. You’re done! When the season starts you’ll be able to view a season long leaderboard.
