Buzz Fantasy Golf Commissioner Service - Official Rules
Buzz Fantasy Leagues commissioner service is a traditional fantasy golf application
that allows users to create their own custom fantasy golf league. League commissioners
can select from different scoring systems, draft options, golfers, and golf tournaments
to customize their fantasy league. The rules for this service are explained below.
The user who creates the league will serve as the commissioner and will be
responsible for resolving any disputes that arise, such as drafing, scoring, or rules violations or any
other matters that may come up in connection with the league.
You may sign up and play in a custom league up until the registration deadline for the specific private league.
The registration deadline will be the date of the first tournament or an entry deadline set by the commissioner
of the league. You must be a registered Buzz Fantasy Leagues user to join and participate in a private league.
Buzz Fantasy Leagues fantasy golf private leagues are open to anyone. Children under 16 must have their parents
permission before purchasing the fantasy golf commissioner service.
There are no refunds for the fantasy golf commissioner service. Honoring refund requests will be subject to the
sole discretion of Buzz Fantasy Leagues.
Commissioners will be able to choose one of the following team selection options:
Salary Cap Team Selection
The commissioner will set a maximum amount of fantasy dollars/points you will be able to
spend on your team. The commissioner will set a number of golfers that you will need to select to fill your team.
The combined dollar/point amount of all of your drafted golfers must be equal or less than the maximum
dollar/points set up for the private league.
Tiered Team Selection
With tiered team selection, the commissioner breaks up golfers into different groups based on their skill level.
The commissioner will set a number of golfers you must choose from each of the different tiers. A commissioner
can set up to 20 tiers to choose from.
Weighted Team Selection
A private league with a weighted team selection will allow you to choose golfers and place them into a weighted
group. Each golfer in a weighted group will have their earnings multiplied by the amount associated with
that group. A weighted team selection type can have up to 20 weighted groups. As a team owner, you will have a set
number of golfers that you must draft for each group. This set number of golfers is determined by the commissioner.
Draft/Auction Team Selection
This option is for leagues that run a draft or auction separately from BuzzFantasyGolf.com. Buzz Fantasy Leagues
does not offer live drafting or auctions at this time. It will be the commissioner's responsibility to enter each
team's roster after your draft or auction is complete. This team selection type allows for golfers to be owned by
only one team in your league.
Choose Any Team Selection
This option allows team owners to select any golfers that are available in your fantasy golf league.
Commissioners will be able to choose one of the following scoring systems:
Private leagues with the earnings scoring system will use the golfer's tournament earnings to determine your
team's value. There may be one to many tournaments used in a private league. The golfer earnings from all of
the tournaments will be accumulated to determine each team's score.
To Par Scoring
Private leagues with the to par scoring system will use the golfer's to par score to determine your team's value.
The to par scoring system can only be used with a single tournament league. A golfer must make the cut to qualify
for this type of scoring system. The lowest combined score for your team of golfers will determine the winner.
A set number of golfers to accumulate will be set by the commissioner of the league, and you must have at least that many
golfers on your team make the cut to qualify to win.
Place Finished Scoring
With this scoring type, scoring will be based where each golfer places in each tournament. The commissioner can
set the points to award for a 1st place finish, a bonus amount for finishing in 1st place,
and points to subtract for each place below 1st place.
Scoring will be based on the amount of strokes a golfer has in each tournament. This option
can be set to accumulate points by tournament round or by total strokes. The commissioner can
set the points to award for the lowest amount of strokes, a bonus amount for finishing in 1st place,
and points to subtract for each stroke above the lowest stroke amount.
Result Category Scoring
Scoring will be based on golfer result categories. This option allows the commissioner to award
points for 1st place finishes, 2nd place finishes, 3rd place finishes, top 10 finishes, top 25
finishes, making a cut, missing a cut, and shooting a low round in a tournament.
Scores and stats are updated within 24 hours of the completed tournament. Some events beyond Buzz Fantasy Leagues'
control can make this time longer. Thus, Buzz Fantasy Leagues is not responsible for the timeliness and accuracy of
