Frequently Asked Questions

What is Teepster?

Teepster is your site for 'One & Done' fantasy golf.
We've created afun way to compete against your friends by selecting a player from the PGA Tour each week.
We've made it simple, easy-to-use and loads of fun.

Do I need to pay to play?

No, it's free to play.
We may introduce more features and formats in future that members can access but right now, everything is free to use.

Is Teepster a gambling website?

No, Teepster is a fantasy golf website only - designed to play for fun against your friends.

When does the season start?

Each PGA Tour season begins some time around September. But you can join and start a league any time. A season finishes with the TOUR Championship in September.

How do I play?

Create a One & done league and then invite your friends to join via league settings (cog wheel button), then via the 'Membership' menu. Or accept someone else's invitation by clicking on the link. Each week, select a golfer from the PGA Tour field - their prize-money is used to rank you against everyone else in your league across the season. The season begins with the start of the PGA Tour in September and finished with the TOUR Championship. (See details below on how the unique TOUR Championship format is dealt with at Teepster).

When is the cut-off time to make my pick each week?

The cut-off time to make your pick will be on the hour before the first tee time. This allows for the site to crunch the selections and send out email notifications before the first shot is hit.

How does the "One and Done" work?

One and Done leagues have no limit on the number of friends who you can join.
Select a golfer from the PGA Tour tournament and their earnings are your (virtual) earnings for the week.
Note there are some tournaments that offer small winnings to golfers who missed the cut - we don't accept mediocrity at Teepster and golfers who missed the cut (MC) will always earn $0.
The only catch? You can only select the same golfer once per year, so choose wisely.
We'e recently added a new T5+ feature your league owner may select. When selected if your golfer finishes in the top-5, then you may choose that golfer again!

Will I be sent a reminder to make my selection each week?

We will send you an email reminder to select your golfer when tipping opens as well as a reminder email a few hours before the tournament begins.

Is there a prize for winning my league?

Not through Teepster. Yet.
In future, we're aiming to have a selection of prizes you can play for for an entrance fee. But for now just play among yourselves for free, for pride or your own in-house prizes.

What happens if I forget to pick a golfer?

At the moment it will be a "no pick" and you won't receive a golfer for the week.
We would like to implement an automatic pick feature in future. If we can find the time (and money) to do it we will!

What happens at the season-ending TOUR Championship?

The PGA Tour finishes with the TOUR Championship and is limited to the top-30 golfers on FedEx Cup points rankings. The tournament will begin with the number 1 seed starting at 10 under par.
The second seed will start at −8, the third seed at −7, and so on down to the fifth seed at −5. Seeds 6–10 will begin at −4; seeds 11–15 will begin at −3; and so on, down to seeds 26–30 who will start at even par.
This should be taken into consideration when making your picks over the course of the season.
The PGA Tour awards bonus prize money to the players including a huge cheque to the winner. However, in the interest of fairness, Teepster will set the total prize purse for the TOUR Championship to be the same as the other FedEx Cup playoff tournaments ($20,000,000 in total).
The breakdown for the TOUR Championship is as follows: 1. $3600000 2. $2160000 3. $1380000 4. $960000 5. $800000 6. $720000 7. $680000 8. $640000 9. $600000 10. $570000 11. $540000 12. $510000 13. $490000 14. $460000 15. $440000 16. $424000 17. $408000 18. $400000 19. $392000 20. $384000 21. $376000 22. $368000 23. $360000 24. $352000 25. $344000 26. $336000 27. $332000 28. $328000 29. $324000 30. $320000

What happens if my golfer withdraws before or during a tournament?

Unfortunately, if your player withdraws for COVID related reasons or otherwise, you won't be assigned another golfer and just like the PGA Tour you won't recieve any prizemoney for the week. However if your golfer did withdraw before the tournament began, that pick will be removed from you history to ensure you still have that player available to be selected in future tournaments.
