2013 British Open Prediction Contest!

post #1 of 118
Thread Starter 

Predict the Winner of the 2013 British Open 

with The Sand Trap!

 

 

 

 

 
Who do you think will WIN the Open Championship at Muirfield and what SCORE will they shoot?
 
Couple changes from previous contests:
- Instead of choosing 3 players , you are now going to pick 2 players.
 
- It's a Global contest!  Members are NOT required to live in the USA to enter

 

To enter, post your answer right here in this thread.  Your answer must also include a 2nd pick.  You are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, and 2nd, you are picking 2 players to win and what score(s) they will shoot. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more).

 

The Winner of the contest will receive a TST Supporter Membership  FREE for TWO years

The Runner up in the contest will receive a TST Supporter Membership free for one year 

 

 

 


 

The Rules:

All qualifying entries must be received by July 18th, 2013 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City).
- You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing.
- You must be aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry.
- Your answer must include the FULL NAME (first and last) and score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) you are predicting to win the 2013 British Open, as well as your 2nd choice.

- The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score.

- One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries.

- If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next entry.

 

Details regarding the blue, underlined rule:

- It's very simple guys. The winner is the first person (who satisfies the other rules) to choose the correct winner and score with their first choice. If nobody picks the correct score, the winner is the first person to have the closest score for the correct winner. If nobody chose the correct winner with their first choice, we repeat the process for everyone's second choice.

- In other words, if someone chooses Joe Smith for their first choice - at any score - and you choose him for your second choice, you've wasted your choice. Additionally, if someone chooses Joe Smith at -2 for their first choice, it makes no sense to choose Joe Smith at -2 for any of your choices if you're posting after that entry (unless the person is DQed or ineligible, of course).

- Think of your picks like draft picks. Your second pick should be someone you don't think will be chosen in the first "round."
