2019 Dollar Values: RotoWire Staff Auction Results
2019 Dollar Values: RotoWire Staff Auction Results

This article is part of our Golf Draft Kit series.

For those of you who have a golf auction and bid a fixed budget on your golfers, the following is meant to be a guide.

These are the actual dollar values from our RotoWire staff golf league, which took place on Jan. 6. Our rules base winners on total earnings in PGA Tournaments from the Sony Open to the final FedExCup event (we skipped the Tournament of Champions and also didn't use the fall portion of the 2018-19 wrap-around schedule), excluding those PGA Tour events held the same week as the World Golf Championship tournaments and the British Open.

Our format also includes bonus points for the four majors. As a result, some European players may be ranked higher than your league. If a European golfer plays in just the four majors and WGC tournaments, he'll still have a lot of value in our league. Our league had 14 members, a budget of $100 per team and each team starts five golfers per week with a total roster of nine golfers. The league has been around since 2000.

After some years where the top golfer would go for $70 or more, the auction wasn't as top heavy this year with the money more spread out.

The 2018 auction had three players going for over $60 (Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson) and eight players over $40. In 2019 our league didn't think the top players would dominate as much paying $470 for the top ten players compared to $504
