Tips For Betting On Golf
punters particularly enjoy betting on golf because
it can give them an interest in an event for up to
four days. The popularity of golf betting increases
around the four Major Championships on the calendar,
which are the US Masters, US Open, Open Championship,
and US PGA Championship. If you are planning to have
a bet on golf in the future, here are five tips you
should bear in mind when choosing your selection.
of the most helpful form guides for choosing a winning
in a tournament is the past results at that course.
Course form is much more important than the recent
form of a player because if they have performed well
before at a certain venue, it can trigger good thoughts,
which can lead to them having success again. This
is particularly the case at the US Masters, the opening
Major of the year, as Augusta National Golf Course
is challenging but some players enjoy competing there.
Jordan Spieth has finished second or better in three
of the past four years, therefore, it is no surprise
that he is prominent in the outright market for the
2018 tournament at 7/1 with bookies
like Betfair who are already offering betting

Length of the course
you are looking to find the most likely winner of
a golf tournament, take into account the length of

the tee will fancy their chances of scoring lots of
birdies and eagles. One of the longest courses on
the PGA Tour is Torrey Pines, which is 7,698 yards.
The course hosts the Farmers Insurance Open, which

weather forecast ahead of a golf tournament is not
something that should be dismissed. The pace of the
green at the course will all depend on the amount
of sunshine or rain that will descend across the four
days. If the sun is shining throughout the event,
the greens are likely to be very fast, which will
suit the better putters. This was the case during
Open Championship, where Spieth took advantage
of the tough greens at Royal Birkdale.

like in horse racing or any other sport, the odds
in the outright market are very important when determining
who you should back. If you feel the bookmakers have
underestimated the chances of a particular player,
then backing that player at bigger odds than you were
expecting is a success before the tournament has even
begun. Equally, if a player is much shorter in the
betting than you were expecting, don't be afraid to
look elsewhere for better value
betting on the outright market of a tournament is
not for you, there are lots of alternatives for you
to get involved with. Bookmakers offer match bets
between particular player, first round leading betting,
top nationality, the margin of victory and many more
other markets so do shop around.
