2016 Dollar Values: RotoWire Staff Golf Draft Results

2016 Dollar Values: RotoWire Staff Golf Draft Results

This article is part of our Golf Draft Kit series.

For those of you who have a golf auction and bid a fixed budget on your golfers, the following is meant to be a guide.

These are the actual dollar values from our RotoWire staff golf league, which took place on Jan. 10. Our rules base winners on total earnings in PGA Tournaments from the Sony Open to the final FedExCup event (we skipped the Hyundai Tournament of Champions due to scheduling conflicts for the draft and also didn't use the fall portion of the 2015-16 wrap-around schedule), excluding those PGA Tour events held the same week as the World Golf Championship events and the British Open.

Our format also includes bonus points for the four majors. As a result, some European players may be ranked higher here than your league. If a European golfer plays in just the four majors and world golf tournaments, he'll still have a lot of value in our league. Our league had 15 members, a budget of $100 per team and each team starts five golfers per week with a total roster of nine golfers. The league has been around since 2000.

The 2016 draft had three players go for $70 or more after no player went for more than $65 last season, reflecting the dominance of
Spieth, McIlroy and Day. Tiger Woods went No. 3 overall last season, but went for just $6 this year amid an unknown return date from back surgery.

While these dollar values may not exactly fit your league's rules, this should be a good benchmark for your draft preparation.
