Mar6 Euro no.1 joins Fantasy League

Published:

 

European's reigning no. 1 golfer Padraig Harrington is the latest superstar to join our Fantasy League fun and games, following in the footsteps of the ever-blossoming Justin Rose.

And unlike Rose, Dubliner Harrington, one of the heroes of Europe's Ryder Cup thrashing of America at the K Club last September, hasn't selected himself in his six-man team though he will be relying heavily on world no. 1 Tiger Woods to keep delivering the goods.

Woods' inclusion also means Harrington will be banking on lesser lights such as Ross Fisher and Jose Manuel Lara to spring a few surprises while hoping that promising Colombian Camilo Villegas can maintain his fine start to the campaign.

Harrington picked up his first European Order of Merit title in 2006 after pipping Englishman Paul Casey to the spoils after a thrilling climax to the season.

The game kicks off at The Masters in just over a month's time, but you can register your team NOW.

Harrington's team consists of:

Tiger Woods ($8m)

Henrik Stenson ($3m)

Justin Rose ($1.6m)

Jose Manuel Lara ($1m)

Camilo Villegas ($0.8m)

Ross Fisher ($0.6m)

The new-for-2007 game has a Lucky Dip service, where you can have a team drawn up for you in an instant, and you can make unlimited FREE team changes all season, so you can register your team and then delay your final selections right up until the start of The Masters in the first week of April.

We’ve also joined forces with some of the biggest brands in golf to pull together a total prize package worth more than £30,000.

We’ve teamed up with Marriott to offer a sensational first prize of a week for two at the Doral Resort and Spa in Florida, an annual stop on the PGA Tour.

Marriott will also be giving away European and UK breaks, plus fourballs at its 10 prestigious UK courses throughout the competition.

Srixon and Hi-Tec will also be supporting this year’s competition, giving away balls every month and shoes every week for the best performances.

You can play on your own, or set up a private league for your fourball, office or golf club.

HOW TO PLAY

The game is simple to play. Register FREE by clicking here and you’ll be given a budget of $15 million, which you use to pick a team of six players from the European and US Tours from a price list on the website.

Budgets are reasonably tight – Tiger Woods is
$8 million, Vijay Singh $5.2 million, Ernie Els
$5 million – but not so restrictive that you need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Tours’ lower reaches.

Once you’ve picked your team, your players will then earn points for any top 20 finishes they record in our 19 selected tournaments, between The Masters in April and the US PGA Championship in August.

And there’s no need to worry if one of your men picks up an injury, because you can make unlimited changes throughout the game just by visiting our website.
