Supposedly, they WILL be a short, undefined & unannounced, window in which to select R3 subs. However, you'd have to be sitting at your computer constantly refreshing the screen. I like the game too but it's all too apparent that they really care about the thousands of gamers playing their game.
I was a member of your league in 2012 but due to a Yahoo system glitch I no longer have access to the Group's ID/PW. The one from January 2012 doesn't work any longer. I would like to join your league again this year if possible.

Due to a Yahoo system glitch, I lost history from 2012. I was a member of the priivate league called Greenskeeper. Since I have no League ID/PW & Yahoo has been of no help at all, I'm pulling out all stops in my attempt to find the league Commish so that I can hopefully join his/her league this year. Thanks!

Here is a truncated copy of Yahoo's current rule regarding delays. They have posted that the deadline for R3 was at 12:30 PM ET. Well, I was refereshing as well prior to that & never had a chanc. In addition R2 scores are still missing.
Delayed or suspended rounds in Fantasy Golf
Refers to: Fantasy Golf
This article discusses what happens if a golf tournament is delayed, suspended, cancelled, or postponed due to weather or other circumstances.
Lineup deadlines can and will change if a round is delayed, suspended, or postponed due to weather or other circumstances.
Regardless of whether a round is delayed or not, the initial deadline for editing your lineup for the following round will always be 2am Pacific Time on the day that the round was originally scheduled. After the previous round has been completed, the PGA Tour will announce the new tee time for the upcoming round. Once this data has been received from our data provider (generally 10-15 minutes following its announcement), we will open up the deadline, from the time we receive the new tee time until 5 minutes prior to that scheduled tee time, to allow you to make any last-minute adjustments.
Since the time from which tee time data is received to the scheduled tee time is relatively short, your window for editing your lineup in the event of delays is relatively small.
For some clarity on how deadlines for editing your golfer lineup are effected in the event of a delay, please see the below example (based on a 4 round tournament beginning on Thursday):
Round 1 (Thursday) - Your lineup must be set by 2am PT on Thursday for Round 1. Any changes to your lineup after 2am would be applied to Round 2. Due to weather conditions, Round 1 is delayed and must be finished on Friday.

This is simply outrageous. Yahoo has violated its own rules in that R3 has started & they didn't give players the 5-minute deadline prior to the next round starting. I've had it & will push my complaint to the highest levels!
- randun randun Jun 23, 2012 12:28 PM Flag
R2 is completed. The PGA is in the process of selecting tee times for R3. Once done, the info is passed to Yahoo, who will then update R2 scores & set deadine for R3. There should be a more user-friendly approach but for now rhat's all we have.

True. I've written CS several times regarding not keeping players (US) up to datte with delays & restarts on a realtime basis & basically the answer is essentially what Skip points out. CBS supports the game that is run on Yahoo. I think I'll give them shot. As everyone knows, as of 11:23 AM ET, R3 tee times haven't been set yet as R2 is still underway!
- randun randun Mar 30, 2012 11:26 AM Flag
The tee times that you're referring to are the adusted times for R1 & R2 after the PGA TOUR estimated completion of R1 barring further delays. Even so, per the info I posted Yahoo has to set the deadline 5 minutes prior to the first tee time, which as you note, is currently 11:40 AM ET.
- randun randun Mar 30, 2012 10:52 AM Flag
I just viewed the Help topic on weather delays & unless I'm misinterpreting something, Yahoo has to delay the deadline based on this info (R2 info copied below) & their overall TOS.
Round 2 (Friday) - Your lineup must be set by 2am PT on Friday for Round 2, regardless of the fact that Round 1 has not been completed. Any changes you make to your lineup between 2am and the point at which we receive the new tee time for Round 2 would be applied to your Round 3 lineup. However, since there was a weather delay, we will open a window of time from the point that we receive the new tee time up until five minutes prior to the announced tee time. So, if Round 1 is completed at 8am on Friday, and the PGA announces at 8:15am that the tee time for Round 2 will be 8:55 am, and we receive this data by 8:30am, the window of time you have to edit your lineup would be from 8:30am - 8:50am (20 minutes). Please note, this is only an example, and the time frame you have to edit your lineup may be longer, dependent on when we receive the new tee time from our data provider and when that new tee time is announced to be. However, any lineup changes you make to your lineup outside of this time frame would be applied to Round 3.
Please note: Unfortunately, there is no set time as to when the PGA will announce new tee times, so the time frame to edit your line up for upcoming rounds will vary from event to event when a delay occurs. However, we will post a note on your team page and advise you of the new deadline. Also, the next round roster deadline will only be adjusted once we have received the next round's tee time from our data provider following the PGA announcement. Until this data has been received, the round will maintain the default deadline of 2am PT.
Regretfully, it will sometimes be necessary to set your lineup for the weekend before it has actually been determined which golfers made the cut for the event.

I have the same situation. I contacted Support via email but doubt that I'll hear back from them in time.
They're still playing R1 as of 10:39 AM. It's simply not fair if Yahoo doesn't make an adjustment.
Why did Yahoo retain the R2 deadline per below when tee times haven't even been set for R2 & there are still players on the course from R1 at ~9:13 AM ET!
Fri 3/30 8:20 am EDT - passed
I still have a starter & a sub in play & will want to make a change prior to R2.

I must say that with the exception of Yahoo's ridiculous player selection deadlines, it's a pretty good game. But, since this game is free, you get what you pay for.
However, if you don't miind paying ($25 per team) you need to try Pro Tour Fantasy Golf. It's great. The current League in play can be found here, http://league5.protourfantasygolf.com/. A new League starts in 2 weeks. John adjusts his deadlines! The only drawback, in my opinion, is that you can only use a player twice during a League's season.
Folks, following is my original message to Yahoo Customer Care & their response, which resulted in my posting my original message here. Read into what you will but needless to say I disagree with their assessment.
Original Message Follows:
5. What are you writing about?
Subject: Changing Your Lineup
6. Enter additional information here:
Currently (8:08 AM ET, 2/4), the deadline for selecting R2 players reads: “Deadline to edit your active Round 2 players is Feb
4 9:35am EST.” How can you set a deadline for R2 when R1 hasn’t been completed yet (3 hours earlier)?!

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.
I appreciate your inquiry regarding weather delays.
Lineup deadlines can and will change if a round is delayed, suspended,
or postponed due to weather or other circumstances. Each round's roster
deadline is flexible and will automatically adjust to be 5 minutes
before the first tee time of the round, once the first tee time is
announced by the PGA. Unfortunately, there is no set time as to when the
PGA will announce new tee times, so the time frame to edit your line up
for upcoming rounds will vary event to event when a delay occurs.

For example, if the second round of a tournament being played on Friday
is suspended due to darkness, forcing the completion of the round on 53
Saturday, and the first golfers of the third round are rescheduled to
tee off at 3pm PT on Saturday, the third round roster deadline will be
from when the PGA announced the new tee time (Random time) until about
2:55pm PT on Saturday.

I respectfully disagree with your assesment. There is no crystal ball involved at all. Do you realize that Yahoo operates this game for the PGA TOUR. Regardless of what anyone says, including Yahoo personnel, they have full access to TOUR information, which includes weather information, in order to make timely decisions to change deadlines based on weather delays. Finally, your last statement "...due to their own inability to play the game" simply boggles the mind as it makes absolutely no sense at all in the context of what is being discussed in this thread.
Pat, R2 hasn't finished yet because the R1 delay (weather, frost) was so long forcing a suspension due to darkness, then the exact same thing happened on Fri AM when they tried to resume R1. Snowball effect...
FYI All, R3 will be suspended early on Sun supposedly due to the weather delays so a complete R4 could be completed on Mon. This is the official word from the PGA & they stated further that the little football game being played on Sun had nothing to do with it. However, Appelby tweeted last night that the R4 delay was because of the SB. I'll go w/Stu. :)
Look back at my original message. The lock-outs go back to the beginning, i.e. R2, for me anyway.
If it will help everyone understand Yahoo's misguided rationale for choosing lock-out times, I'll gladly post their response to me.
