Frequently Asked Questions

What is Teepster?

Teepster is your site for golf tipping.
We've created two fun ways 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 more tipping formats in future that members can access but right now, everything is free to use.

Is Teepster a gambling website?

No, Teepster is a tipping website only designed to play for fun against your friends.
Teepster is not and never will be a sports gambling website.

When does the season start?

The PGA Tour season begins with the first tournament in October. But you can join and start a league any time. The season finishes with the TOUR Championship in September.

How do I play?

You can play against your buddies in one of two ways; One-Pick Tipping or Draft Tipping leagues.
Create a league and then invite your friends to join via league settings (cog wheel button), then via Membership. Or accept someone else's invitation. Select a golfer from the PGA Tour field each week - their prize-money is used to rank you against everyone else in your league across the season.

How does the One-Pick Tipping work?

One-Pick Tipping 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.
The only catch? You can only select the same golfer once per year, so choose wisely.

How does the Draft Tipping work?

Draft Tipping leagues are limited to 10 friends.
Each player selects a golfer but no player can choose the same golfer as another player each week.
Selection order is based on the previous week's results.
Earn the most money one week and you're thrown to the bottom of the draft order for the following week.
You must make the cut though! See below.

What's all this about making the cut in Draft Tipping?

Draft selection order each week is based on the previous week's results.
The best player goes to the bottom of the draft and vice versa. Except you must make the cut!
If your golfer misses the cut you will stay at the bottom of the draft.

For example, in a 10-player league if just one player misses the cut then that player will have the 10th draft pick the following week.
All other players finishing positions will be reversed for the rest of the draft.
In case of a tie, the previous week finishing positions will be used.

Why is it asking me to select more than one golfer in a Draft Tipping League?

You and your friends can't be in the same room at the same time to make your draft selections.
To get around it, we ask you to chose a selection of golfers in order of preference.
If your first preferred golfer has not been taken when it is your turn in the draft, then that's your golfer for the week.
If not it looks at your next preferred golfer from your selection, and so on.

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

Yep.
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 recieve 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 if my golfer withdraws before or during a tournament?

Unfortunately, you won't be assigned another golfer and just like the PGA Tour you won't recieve any prizemoney for the week.

How can I get in touch with Teepster?
