How do I enter a team?

To enter your team, all you need to do is sign up for a free account here

It's quick and easy to join, and you have until the first scheduled tee time at the FedEx St. Jude Championship on Thursday to enter your five players, of which one of them needs to become your captain who will earn you double points! 

In total, we'll have 20 events. 

We've compiled a helpful guide for you on all the information you need in order to play GolfMagic Fantasy this season.

With that being said, let's get stuck into our GolfMagic Fantasy picks for the FedEx St. Jude Championship. 

Ben's picks:

Pot 1 - Jon Rahm (C)

Do we really to say more about why Jon Rahm? Can we really say anything that hasn't already been said? Surely this tournament is between himself and Scottie Scheffler?

Pot 2 - Keegan Bradley

Bradley has had a great year and deserves to be in the Ryder Cup discussion. He has two wins, a runner-up and a T-5 this season. 

Pot 2 - Tyrrell Hatton

Take a look at Hatton's performances over the last few months and it demonstrates he's playing well. I hate to use the term, but he's trending. Before the Open, he posted a T-6 at the Scottish Open, T-3 at the Canadian Open and a T-12 at the Memorial. He's not afraid of the big occasions either. 

Pot 3 - Rickie Fowler

Fowler will be hoping 2023 is the year he finally turned things around and is not just a flash in the pan. His putting has been supreme all year. He's ninth in the standings having posted five top-15 finishes in his past seven starts.

Pot 4 - Lee Hodges

Will be feeling super confident given his recent win at the 3M Open. He represents good value in this pot, in my opinion. There are also some interesting players to choose in this category, mind. You might be liking the look of Sam Ryder, Adam Hadwin, Aaron Rai, Eric Cole, Adam Svennsson or even Lucas Glover as outside bets.

The rules

Team selection:

You must pick a team of five golfers for each tournament in the PGA Tour season. There are no player values or salary cap for selections, however you must respect the Pots criteria, better explained in the next section. Golfers who are not in the field will not be available for selection. Golfers who withdrawal from a tournament before the start and are still within your team will not be earning any points.
Each week your team will be wiped, so you must pick a fresh team ahead of each tournament. This is to ensure that you have five active golfers in your team each week to maximize your scoring potential.


You have up until the first scheduled tee-time to pick your team or make edits to your team. If you do not submit a team by this time, you will be automatically assigned five players. No team edits are permitted after this deadline.
