Honest John

By

Definition: How well do you know your own golf game? Honest John is one of the simplest golf side bets and puts your predictive powers to the test.

Very simple: Before the round starts, members of the group each put an agreed-upon dollar amount into the pot. Each player predicts the score they will shoot. At the end of the round, the player who came closest to his predicted score wins the pot.
