THE 2013 BETFAIR GOLF COMPETITION

Well done to Dazmacccccc for an excellent win in the 2012 comp just holding off Tingle Creek and perennial challenger Midnight Special in the final stage. The 2013 competition starts on 10th January and anyone who wishes to enter should put their name down on this thread. The rules follow this post and also the schedule of events follow too.

Prize money cannot be determined at this stage. There will be some cash prizes for sure but until Betfair respond to my request for 2013 sponsorship, I cannot be specific about the prizes and the value of such.  Nevertheless, the cash is secondary to the kudos of winning one of the longest and most difficult comps to win on Betfair !!!

Once I know the number of entrants I will announce the cut off numbers going forwards into the 2nd stage and the 3rd stage. The 15 prequaifiers will automatically be entered in the 2nd stage whether or not they compete in the first stage and regardless of where they finish if they do. Pre-qualifiers will be assigned the letters PQ in the first stage if they enter and their positions do not count towards the cut off numbers. However, they can win the prize (If there is one) for the first stage leader after week 12.

I hope to see many of you back from last year and a few new ones too. Just enter your name on this thread and by the Monday prior to the first scoring tournament  (10th Jan) I will allocate the group you should post in. Anyone posting after this date will be given a group to post in by default so no one should have an excuse for not entering.

I reserve the right to change the scoring on weeks where the standard scoring system is meaningless such as some of the events last year where only 12 or 13 people were entered. I also reserve the right to add in tournaments where there are currently TBA’s in the schedule and also on weeks 46 and 47 that we did have in 2012 but have nothing scheduled in 2013 yet.

Rules are the same... there are many suggestions each year for changes but the comp has been running for a number of years now with few changes and I see no difference to this year. Good luck all who enter and let the battle commence !!!

No, - 60 for the Euro one, but not too late for picks in The Sony on the PGA tour.

its only -60 for the Euro tourney... you can still post for the US event and they will count if they are in before tee off

as there is no cut in europe surely you can show some compassion to the late entrants ????

Agree, no point in awarding - 60 to non posters when there's no cut and not possible to get inus points for those posting picks.

late entry
-60

Report madmaxkelly January 10, 2013 2:53 PM GMT
Although there is no cut there would still be -20 for any player who pulls out before the end of the second round. I would hate to allow anyone a zero score when potentially, however unlikely, it is possible for someone who posted on time to get -60 and the late poster gets an advantage. That is why I rarely flex the rules as in the long term its fairer for all. With 10x RP on offer twice every week its easy for someone to make up -60 or -120 over the first stage

Hi Eric, you should have entered the US one before 5.10 mate, c'est la vie, a good winner will wipe out the minus point s though.Wink

Of course you can enter and Deplasterer is correct.. if you posted before 5:10 you would only lose -60

Could I enter from next week?  Sorry completely forgot about this year...
Report madmaxkelly January 11, 2013 2:19 PM GMT
Lambers 1 yes

If anyone else is reading this thread and still wants to enter then there is no need to put your name down on here. Just post on the USPGA thread next week. You will start with -120 but it will be fun catching up and maybe qualifying... only takes 1 good winner to win the whole first stage !!!

If you are reading this after 2 or 3 weeks then you can still enter. Just post on the USPGA thread that week and I will pick up your name.. you will lose -120 for each missed week but you are still allowed to enter.
