Can you believe it’s 2013 already?
This is our 4th annual Regular Season Fantasy Four and we hope you can join us from now until the The TOUR Championship. Last year we gave away a VR_S iron set, VR_S Driver, hybrid, woods, Method putter and a lot of 20XI-X balls.
This year, we will have prizes for monthly winners, prizes for overall first and second half winners, prizes for first, second and third place for the overall season, and a special FedEx Cup prize.
If you’re new to this, you pick 4 golfers from the field each week and at least 1 must be a Nike Golf athlete. SAMPLE POST >>

The field is 30 this week, so the pickings are slim. However, we have 30 winners from 2012 and this is always a fun event. I’m a fan of the Friday-Monday format, also.
Each week, I will break it down by highlighting Nike Athletes, Four players that are playing well and four that have history at the event. It’s pretty straight forward, so let’s kick off Event 1 of Month 1 and the season!
This is event 1/4 in Month 1. For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below (don’t forget your ONE Nike Athlete).
