Best in the West Leg 1: Sony Open
We've got a prize pool of £1,000 in free bets to give away in our brand new golf prediction competition, William Hill Swingers: Best in the West.
For each of the next seven weeks, we'll be asking you to choose three players that you think are going to do well in the US PGA tournament. It all starts here with Leg 1, this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.
Every active account that enters the competition gets a mythical £10 each-way bet on each of your three picks for the Tournament Winner market, which pays 1/4 the odds down to fifth place. The returns you would receive at the end of the tournament will be added up and go on our leaderboard.
If you're at the top of the leaderboard when the competition finishes on 1st March, after the Phoenix Open, you'll win the first prize of £500.00 in free bets but there are free bet prizes to be won right down to 20th position as we're giving away a total of £1,000.00.
