The 2x multiplier was the best score for the opening round of the, which was -9. The closest contestant guesses came from @flowily, @marzi, and @stanislavpetrov, who guessed the exact number. As a result, they were each able to double their score and also added a five-point bonus for selecting a unique golfer combination.

The September optional special bonus winner for the BMW Championship was Jason Day. All contestants who selected Jason Day will receive a 50% bonus for their final September score. All contestants who selected Sergio Garcia will lose 25% of their final September score. These optional bonuses can accumulate and cancel each other out, so carefully consider your strategies this week!

Payouts to winners will be sent later today.

Please keep in mind that all points will accumulate for the monthly and season-long contests. This is the final month for the Steemit Scramble contest. Here is the September monthly leaderboard with current special bonuses in parentheses.

Tournament Information


TOUR Championship

The PGA Tour heads to Georgia for the final tournament of the season – the TOUR Championship, hosted by the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The TOUR Championship will be played on the 7385-yard, par-70 course at East Lake. The defending champion, Rory McIlroy, won last year’s event in a four-hole playoff that included Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell.

Current tee times can be found here: TOUR Championship Tee Times


Player Selections and Multiplier


For the weekly Steemit Scramble, select three golfers from the tournament field that you believe will perform well and finish highest in the final standings. Based on the final results of the tournament, golfers will be assigned the following points, which have changed due to the number of golfers (30) playing in this final tournament:


ResultsPoints Awarded
1st – 3rd place7
4th – 7th4
8th – 15th2
16th – 25th1


THIS WEEK’S 2x MULTIPLIER: Pick the NUMBER OF BIRDIES BY MARC LEISHMAN FOR THE TOURNAMENT. The closest participant(s) to the multiplier statistic will earn DOUBLE their total points for the week. Bonus points will be added to the contestants’ point totals AFTER the multiplier has been calculated.

AN ADDITIONAL 5-POINT BONUS will be awarded for the winner of the tournament.

AN ADDITIONAL 5-POINT BONUS will be awarded for all unique golfer combinations. If two or more contestants choose the same golfers for the contest, then the contestant who entered their selections first will receive the bonus. Contestants that do not select a unique golfer combination will be ineligible for the multiplier and winning golfer bonuses.


Special Bonus for the Month of September (OPTIONAL)


Select the golfer from the choices below that you believe will finish higher in the TOUR Championship’s final standings:

Dustin Johnson

Jordan Spieth

If you choose the correct golfer, you will receive a 50% bonus for your September points total at the end of the month.

If you choose the incorrect golfer, you will lose 25% from your September points total at the end of the month.

Each week, you can accumulate an additional 50% or lose an additional 25% from your total points for the month, giving you a possible 200% maximum bonus or leaving you with 0 points. This is optional every week for the remaining four contests. You can choose to play for this bonus as many times as you like or not at all.

Right/Wrong selections will cancel each other out. If you win the 50% bonus one week then guess incorrectly the next week, no bonus or penalty will be applied to your final points total for the month.

You will only be eligible for this bonus if you have selected a unique golfer combination. If you choose to play for this bonus, make sure you indicate that your golfer selection is your bonus pick. A sample comment with golfer selections should look like this:

Justin Thomas
Sergio Garcia
Jason Day

12 birdies

Bonus: Dustin Johnson

Keeping it safe - No bonus this week

How did people come up with Fowler/Justin Rose for the bonus? lol

I have no idea. Maybe they didn't read the relevant section? The question is - should they get the -25% penalty?

I mean they picked the incorrect golfer, but their selection was not included in the choices. That is a tough call! :}

Well done flowily
