HOW DOES FANTASY GAME CENTRAL WORK?

Commissioner status gives you the ability to update league message board, invite new players to your game and manage selections for registered players in your game. League commissioners are responsible for all player selections during the season. Each update to a player selection by the commissioner will happen automatically with a date and time stamped for accuracy once a change has been made. Website and its administrators will NOT make any changes to player selections in a private league without authorization from league commissioner, and only, in the event that league commissioner cannot make an update.

WHAT ABOUT TIEBREAKERS? Private leagues will have separate tiebreaker rules. Contact your league commissioner for more information. In case there is a tie for an overall standings prize in the Fantasy Challenge, the team with the most money earned during the last week of the fantasy golf season, going back one week at a time until the tie is broken, will be declared the winner. If there is still a tie, the winner will be determined by random drawing.
