Golf investors scammed out of $28 million

Anyone have an extra $28 million to “invest” in my golf ventures?  Oh probably not since all those potential investors already (allegedly) lost $28 million investing into a ficticious golf technology firm.  Don’t worry.  I’d use the investment money wisely, for my gambling addiction, lavish lifestyle and of course to make payments on my three houses.

Official HOG Space Fantasy Golf Discussion and SMACK TALK Thread

PRIZE WINNERS: CONTACT TONY AT THE GOLF SPACE TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE! These prizes will be shipped directly by the sponsors so you’ll need to give me your contact info, which I’ll provide to them.

The final totals for all participants are below.

A note from Tony Korologos,
HOG Space commissioner and organizer:

HOG Space Participants: It has been a great 2008 fantasy golf season! I’ve truly enjoyed the competition (when I didn’t forget to select my damn team before the deadlines). It takes a lot of time to put together the scores, ship prizes and do all the "administrative" parts of running a league with roughly 200 participants. I did my best to get things done as my schedule allowed and I hope all went well for everyone. I look forward to making 2009 even better!

Let the sponsors know they are appreciated!

Do us all a favor and let all the sponsors know that you appreciated them. Click their links and send them some emails letting them know! We’d like them to feel like they’re getting some marketing value out of providing prizes.

I’m going to start looking for sponsors for HOG Space 2009 soon so please contact me to be a sponsor.

I’m considering using a different fantasy engine/provider for next year so let me know if you have any suggestions. In fact, I’m open to any suggestions at all to make the league better for 2009!

See you on the golf course and I look forward to 2009 fantasy golf!
