    TOP 10 CHANGES NEEDED TO IMPROVE YAHOO GOLF

    It's pretty clear that Yahoo Golf is the "ugly sister" of Yahoo Fantasy games. Yahoo is spent tons of time introducing great new features into their fantasy football, hockey, nascar, etc., while Yahoo Golf is pretty much neglected.

    C'mon Yahoo, let's see some improvements. Here's my top 10 suggestions for improvements:

    10.

    Drag and drop player to activate them for a round. Check boxes suck.

    9.

    Stats? Stats? Stats? Hello Yahoo, where are the stats? When you click on a player, you should at the VERY LEAST give us their driving, GIR, and putting stats. The "player notes" is usually blank - obviously, no one is hired to update these.

    8.

    List ALL the player results in the Tournament Log for the season, not just the Yahoo events. Maybe make them a different color or something, How the heck are we supposed to know how European players are doing coming into an event?

    7.

    No icon/image for our team? How lame is that?

    6.

    Where's the "trash talk"? That should show up on everybody's team page. I want my trash talk to mess with my group member's minds when they are making their team changes!!!

    5.

    Custom league option! We want to be able to be able to have our own leagues, just like Fantasy Football!!! And let us control points for categories like - place, aces, eagles, birdies, bogeys+, strokes below par, greens hit, fairways hits, 300+ yard drives, etc.

    4.

    What's with the A and C lists being only 2 players? Whoever decided that? Make each group 4 players. Better yet, have ONE huge player pool and let us select 12 players out of the pool, dragging them and dropping them into groups A/B/C, wherever we damn well want!

    3.

    Make the groups actually MEAN something by giving MORE points per stroke in each group. For example, the A group = 3 points per stroke. B group = 2 points per stroke. A group = 1 point per stroke. Bonus points for winning, 2nd and 3rd would also be different in each group A=30/20/10, B=20/10/5 C=10/5/0

    2.

    Redesign the whole website, it's as ugly as a Baboon's backside.

    1.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, for God's sakes, REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ALLOWABLE STARTS!

    The limit of 10 starts is too darn many, 5 would be perfect and would really make everyone sweat when making their selections. As it is now, you're only likely to hit the start limit for 1 or 2, perhaps 3 players by the end of the year. What's the bloody point of limiting starts when it has no real consequence?

    And it's only going to get worse. As the tour gets richer and prize money increases, you'll see more and more players "specializing" by honing their games for select courses, then taking much of the rest of the year off. The guys at the top (Woods, Mickelson, Els, Scott, etc.) are already making more money off the tour, so they only show up for their favorite courses and majors. And to top it off, many of the best players spend time on the European tour as well, so they'll never reach 10 starts.

    10 starts? Stupid and meaningless. Yahoo, next year, change the allowed number of starts to 5.
