I was hoping to find someone to help me code (or code for me) a small program that pulls scores from a golf leaderboard and converts them to a point value. It would have max 10 teams of 3 golfers each and compute total scores.

If this is possible, let me know.
If not, let me know.

Thanks.

Couple of questions:

1. Where would the golf leaderboard be pulled from?
2. Is this a one-time use?
3. Would this be something you can use Excel for? (this would depend on the answer to #1 I suppose)

After I thought about it I think Excel can do most of it, but I dont think it can pull data live.

the source site would be either of these two,
http://www.pgatour.com/r/leaderboard/
http://www.pgatour.com/leaderboards/current/r475/alt-1.html

How would you want to determine the 10 teams? I'm guessing you need this to run hourly. What kind of program were you looking for? Desktop or web based? What do you want to do with the data? Store it to a database? Excel?

Ah so what you really need is a script to screenscrape the details off that webpage you linked to and format it into whatever kind of format you want, either a CSV file to import into Excel, or just display the data along with the point value you're after in a webpage.
