20 SBI contest. Betting on the british open. Last chance to enter.


Join the contest.

Lets do something a bit different and hopefully a little bit fun. I'm going to run a contest for the British golf open that starts on Thursday morning July 18th. There will be three prizes.

  • 10 SBI
  • 6 SBI
  • 4 SBI

I wrote up a full post on it yesterday with rules and scoring.

The competition is going to be in two parts and there will be a few rules. What you need to know:


You really just need to pick three golfers that you think will finish as high as possible before the cut and add them to the messages before the competition starts Thursday morning.

That is all you really need to know for now and I will do up a later post and a table with results along the way.

For anybody that hasn't entered yet there is still one day left and I would love to see more people take the opportunity to win some Steem basic income units.

My Picks

First of all I will have to put my own picks up for the contest. Hopefully I can top the rankings even if i can't win.

  • Jon Rahm
  • Jason Day
  • Haotong Li

Two big names and a very good amateur that has been playing well. A big part of this will be getting an outsider in a high position. That's where the money is.

So far we have:


  • Jordan Speith
  • Brooks Koepka
  • Tiger woods


  • Louise Oothuizen
  • Xander Schaffle
  • Jon Rahm


  • Thomas Pieters
  • Rory McIllroy
  • Tiger woods


  • Jordan Speith
  • Gary Woodland
  • Erik Van Rooyan

Can you beat the experts and do better. Let me know your guesses for the first round in the comments below. The more people we can get the better. You only have until the first person tees off tomorrow to enter.

Sounds like you are calling the entrants 'experts'. I just got my trust pin out here! :D

I have a few holes in one to my name too, albeit over pitch n putt sized holes. One of those holes you really didn't want the hole in one on too :/

My first pick has to be Thomas Pieters. It is hard to leave out the only Belgian in the entry list.
I always like Tiger, as a golf player, not so much as a person. So he will be my second pick.
Normally my third pick would be McIlroy or Koepka, but to win, you need to pick a dark horse. For me this dark horse is Xander Schauffele.

So my picks are:

  • Thomas Pieters
  • Tiger Woods
  • Xander Schauffele

I think you will need the dark horse to win. With that said Tiger could be a tough pick the other way as he is highly rated but liable to do nothing. Should be interesting.
