William Hill Swingers: Best in the West

Think you know your golf? Well you've got a chance to prove it and win free bets in our first William Hill Swingers competition.

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.

There are seven legs in the competition, but it doesn't matter if you miss one as a big win in one of the later weeks could easily put you towards the top of the Best in the West 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. (Prize table)

What do I have to do?

Entering the competition is simple:

  • Click the link in the table above to go to the competition entry page.
  • Pick the three players you think will do best, or more importantly earn you the biggest returns, in the tournament.
  • Give us a few details so we can track your entry.

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.

An account is active, and therefore an entry will qualify, if there has been sports betting activity of at least £1.00 stakes between the dates shown in the rules below.

Each leg's entry page will be available from midday Tuesday, at the latest, and you have until the first tee-time of the first round to enter.
