2017 British Open Championship Tipping Competition - £200 on Offer

Postby PompeyJim » Tue Jun 13, 2017 6:22 pm

The 146th British Open Golf Championship is taking place at Royal Birkdale this year and OLBG will be running our £200 total prize fund Tipping Competition which is FREE to enter with 13 cash prizes in total.

Please take your time to understand the entry terms below and ask any questions below if you aren't sure. The 2017 British Open Championship tees off on Thursday 20th July and concludes with the final round on Sunday 23rd July.


You do not have to enter this separately, if you are a member of OLBG then you just need to add tips (with comments) in the usual way via the golf option on the 'Make A Tip' menu (link below) on the 2017 British Open Championship.


Markets Available

All markets will count in the tipping competition and they will be added as we get closer to the British Open Championship which can include, Outright winner, First Round Leader, Top USA, Top European, Top GB and Ire, Group Betting, 72 hole match bets, etc.

1 win tip and up to 4 Each Way tips can be placed on all markets except the Group and 72 Match bet markets.


1st place (Tipster with the highest Level Stakes Profit) = £50, 2nd & 3rd = £20, 4th to 13th = £10. This is in addition to the normal monthly tipster competition prizes which you can still win during July based on the criteria for the Golf table.

As usual, prizes are doubled for Elite Golf Tipsters and trebled for Super Elite Golf Tipsters, if unsure you can check your current Golf status via your 'My Performance' page (link below) -



This means Level Stakes Profit. One point will be placed on win tips, 1/2 a point Each Way for Each Way tips at the odds taken. So it doesn't matter if you select a stake of 50 or 500 for these tips, if you place a win tip on a 20/1 winner you will then have a LSP of + 20 points. If you then have 3 losing tips, your level stakes profit will be down to + 17 points.


You must finish the tipping competition with a positive LSP to be in with a chance of a prize.

Tips = 5 or more.

To qualify you must place at least 5 tips with comments that contain at least 20 words or longer with good quality reasoning justifying your tip.
Tips without comments are excluded, also poor comments without reasoning or any that contain less than the minimum criteria will mean the tip will be excluded from the competition.

For example,

I am tipping Rory McIlroy because he is playing really well at the moment, I think he will win come on Rory! .. This is NOT an acceptable comment.

We just need a few good reasons as to why you are choosing the player. Also no copy and pasting of comments, you will need different comments for each tip. For example, if tipping on Group, Match and Outright betting the content must be original and specific for each tip. Duplicated comments are excluded and no copying from other members or websites, as this will result in account disqualification.

Useful comment reasoning may include -

- Recent form in the lead up to the Open Championship

- Previous form in the Major Tournaments

- Previous record in the Open Championship

- Previous record at Royal Birkdale

What we want here is for members to share their key insights about the Players they are tipping and why they think they are a good bet. Then site and app users looking at the British Open tips can read through lots of facts and detailed analysis about each Player.

At the end of the competition the comments will be analysed and if OLBG deem them not to be of good enough quality then the tip is excluded from the competition so please strive for the highest quality and good spelling and punctuation, as this makes it easier for your followers to read on the OLBG App.

The Competition standings will be available via the link below.


Members tip comments will be read this year by a bigger audience than ever before on the website and mobile app and we want to showcase the quality we have on OLBG, so please make your comments the best possible.

The final table will be published week commencing 24th July, once the final checks have been carried out for comment quality and to ensure all qualifying tips have been included the result will be confirmed and prizes paid into OLBG accounts within 14 days.

Good luck !!
