SO YOU THINK you know your golf?

Here’s your chance to prove it and win a goody bag packed full of not-available-in-the-shops The42 gear… including the much-sought-after hip flash?

All you need to do is pick a winning team of three players for this week’s Open Championship at Carnoustie.

To enter, post your team in the comments section before the deadline of midnight tonight.

Entry is free but limited to one per reader.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick three players from the list below. The sum total of your three players’ odds must be at least 120/1.
  2. For example: Patrick Reed (33) plus Adam Scott (70) plus Paul Casey (30) = 133/1.
  3. The person whose team has the lowest combined score at the end of the tournament is the winner.
  4. Importantly… if any of your three players do not make the 36-hole cut, you are eliminated from the competition. All three players must finish the tournament for your team score to be valid.
  5. If your player does not make the first tee, you will be given an alternative player at those odds (or the next highest) in alphabetical order. Once that player tees off, he is part of your team for the duration of the tournament.
  6. In the event of a tie, the winner will be drawn at random.
