Anyone else having trouble finding or getting into this game on ESPN. It is on their main fantasy page when you go into other games, but when I click on the game link it takes me right back to the main fantasy page.

I loved playing this game throughout the years. Are they still doing it?

I heard rumors that they dumped it for some stupid reason.  I had a pool every year, too.  I ended up finding 4majors.com, so we are going to try that.

Completely different format, but it's focused only on the majors, which I like.

I wonder if Disney's purchase of Draft Kings has anything to do with it.

I don't see why Draft Kings would alter this one Fantasy game.  They're running everything else.

ESPN Best Ball Majors being cancelled is depressing.  They had the best format, way better than Draft Kings.  If anyone knows, just out of curiosity, I would like to know why they cancelled it...   It seemed rather popular.

I'm sure this falls under spamming, so I apologize, but I saw how you guys were frustrated (as I was) about the best ball game being removed. I've created a Kickstarter campaign trying to revive the format since ESPN sucks. https://www.kickstar...st-ball-majors.

Old thread but I figure I would pass this along.  This was my communication with them before the 2015 game.

I talked to someone on the phone (surprisingly easy enough to do) from ESPN and they told me that they did not get a sponsor for the Best Ball Challenge this year, so they are not running it.  Apparently, the are running low on bags of cash over there somehow.

This was by far the best betting game I ever played on the web.  I wish it would come back.  Others just aren't as good.

Mods, nuke this if I am reviving too old of a thread.  My friends and I are using the following site.  It is the best substitute we could find.  I figured I would pass it along.
