In honor of the upcoming Golf Major Championship at Chambers Bay, our general competitiveness here at tastytrade, and Tom’s beautiful draw with a 9 iron, we’ve decided to open up our office golf pool to expand the fun to a larger audience (that’s where you come in).
How Do I Play Tom and Tony?
Tom, Tony and a bunch of our tastytraders (including you, we hope!), will be participating in our partners', DraftKings.com, Fantasy Golf Millionaire Maker for the upcoming major championship. Entries will need to be in before the tournament kicks off on June 18th, so you'll want to sign up as soon as possible!
How to Sign Up and Other Information:
To play (and the only way we can track your performance against Tom) – go through our signup link via DraftKings.com.
From there, you’ll see all the info you’ll need to play. Please note, you’ll need to sign up for a DraftKings account and fund your account with a credit card (minimum $20) to play in this event.
Once you register, you’ll be given fantasy points, which allow you to select up to six golfers from the field. Each golfer costs a different amount of points, so choose your golfers wisely. Once you’ve selected your team, you can submit to enter the contest.
Scoring for the competition is available on the DraftKings website, but generally points are awarded for tournament finish and per-hole scoring. You can find full the scoring system here! The team with the best score wins!
What Happens Next?
After the US Open is over, DraftKings will give us a list of how each of our entrants did, and we’ll publish the results right here on the tastytrade blog for everyone to see…who doesn’t want to beat King Sosnoff?
The DraftKings contest is $20 to enter with their total prize pool of $2.5 million.
You can find more information about the contest, signup and pick your golfers here.
Oh, and one more thing: We’ll be adding info to this post over the next few days with a few of our favorite personalities teams, to see if you have what it takes to knock them down to size.

Our friends at DraftKings also want you to know that you must be at least 18 to participate and Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, and Washington residents aren’t currently allowed to play cash fantasy games. This game is only open to residents of the US and Canada.
