More than 3,000 golfers signed up for HowDidiDo’s 2019 Loch Lomond Whiskies Stroke-play Series within a few days of its launch last week. The competition, which was launched to celebrate World Whisky Day, offers weekly prizes of Loch Lomond Whiskies 12-Year-Old Malt until the week after the Open Championship, at Royal Portrush, on July 26.
In addition to the opportunity to win one of the 10 weekly prizes, all entrants have a chance to win tickets to the 148th Open Championship, at Royal Portrush, and the 149th Open Championship, at Royal St George’s, in one of several prize-draws to be carried out during the series.
Once registered, a player’s score is automatically collated by HowDidiDo from every qualifying competition played in a relevant stroke-play series week. Golfers must have registered for the series and record a score in a qualifying competition in the relevant week to be eligible for that week’s prize.
All qualifying scores posted to HowDidiDo by their golf club in the qualifying period will be eligible for the competition. Entrants may play more than one round in the qualifying period, but only the participant’s best score will count toward a prize.
The competition is open to all HowDidiDo members over the age of 18 and is free to enter.
HowDidiDo is Europe’s largest online golf community, with more than half-a-million club golfers from 1,800-plus registered clubs using the website or mobile app regularly across the UK and Ireland.
