I go to to your single line-up selection page and see a score of 118.
When I look a the running weekly totals - you have 138.
It is as if they added the bonus points "20" - added them to the 3rd round total. Then they said "oops", we were was supposed to do that after we calculated the 4th round points. (The final step would be to calculate the bonus points for each players total and then add them to the running total) - BUT it was noticed that they screwed up.
Therefore those who scored bonus points reveal those points on the "weekly performance" portion only - which is more the each person's single page score, prior to the 4th round.
Final example, I look up a person X to view his score to see who he played etc. - it shows a Total of 100 Points. Then I want to compare that to the rest of the Group and his weekly performance. The Total shows 120 points on that list. All this after 3 rounds, because they added Perry's winning points BEFORE they bothered to calculate 4th round scores.

Somebody screwed up at Yahoo,
hmmm, well this almost makes sense except that it still is wrong. The my team report says I have 132. The weekly performance in my league page says I have 172 which makes sense with the bonus (I got 40 bonus this week). My question is when do we get the rest? I scored 62 on day 4 and it would be nice to get those points... 234 would be one of my best tournaments this year...
Your analysis sounds bang-on. I suspect that some Yahoo nerd is writing a script right now to undo the error in the database.
Then again, maybe they are blissfully unaware of the problem. Without a decent mechanism for feedback, you can't really effectively complain.
Whoever keeps posting the sarcastic "it's free - don't complain" comments is off base. It's great that it's free, but Yahoo earns plenty on the ads. But more importantly, it's unethical to offer a service on the pretext of a certain level of service, and then not bothering to maintain that service - regardless of cost. Sure, it's just golf, but some people take the competition seriously, and that's their right. Yahoo set it up and solicited users, so they should maintain it properly.
