With the Australian Open Golf Tournament starting Thursday morning, the team at Draftstars have a new fantasy golf game, which is now available in time for the Australian Open.

RapidFire games are available with a range of buy-ins, from free and up to $20.

To play, you have to simply select the players who you think will outscore their opponent, in fantasy points, in each individual player match up.

There are two formats of this game available, both with different payouts.

Rapidfire 3 – Here, you have to pick at least 3 out of 5 winning match-ups. The prize for doing so is your entry fee multiplied by 1.9 (almost double your money).

Rapidfire 5 – The tougher but immensely more rewarding game. You must pick all 5 winning match ups. Doing so will see you collect your entry fee, multiplied by 25!

You are limited to one entry, per sport, per day.

To play, simply select if you wish to play RapidFire 3 or RapidFire 5, then you will advance to the matchup screen. Make your selections by clicking on the circle next to the player who you think will win.

Once you have made your picks, select your entry fee amount. Once you have decided how much you wish to pay, click on submit and you are automatically entered into the contest.

Then you can sit back and enjoy the golf and if your picks are all correct, you could turn a lazy $20 into a very tidy $500!

Matt Kuchar is one of the fancied players after winning the Mayakoba Classic last week in Mexico, but after missing his flight to Australia he only arrived on Wednesday and admitted he was feeling a little jet-lagged. Risking Kuchar may give you a head start to landing your RapidFire prize.

The Australian Open gets underway Thursday morning with Rapidfire locking out at 6.45am, so make sure you get over to Draftstars today and get your RapidFire tips in before they hit off!
