Things used to be pretty easy back when Tiger Woods was winning the majority of tournaments, but things have become more difficult post 2010. There is usually at least one significant golf tournament every weekend somewhere in the world, and it’s the UK bookmakers who offer the most comprehensive golf betting markets.
Betting on the major championships is quite popular, even for punters who don’t normally bet on the game, as the sheer amount of high-priced novelty bets or Top Irishman/Top American wagers can be especially intriguing.
Big fields are a real obstacle in most golf tournaments and usually there are only a small handful of players listed at single-digit prices. Betting the dark horses in golf is very lucrative when they come in, and the ability to wager each-way can be a major influence on your golf payouts.
Live betting on golf is extremely popular, and with high-profile players you can generally wager hole-by-hole. Two-ball betting is always on offer and even mythical three-ball betting, which pairs players into arbitrary groups, can be particularly interesting.
