Golf Free Bets
Betting on golf peaks around the four Majors of the season, and Ryder Cup biannually, but with both the PGA Tour and European Tour running simultaneously there is rarely a weekend in the calendar without a high-profile golfing event. Golf free bets are most frequently used on the US Masters, The US Open, The Open Championship, the USPGA Championship and as Europe and the USA go head-to-head in the Ryder Cup. However don't be limited by the big events! They can also be used on any golf tournament throughout the season.
All the promotions that you see on FREEbets.org.uk can be used as golf free bets. Whether you fancy Tiger Woods to start winning majors again, think that Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler will dominate the golfing landscape for years to come or feel this is the year that Lee Westwood will break his Major duck, you can place a wager on it.

Race To Dubai Latest News
The Race to Dubai has come down to three players and the season ending DP Tour World Championship will this week determine who is Europe's number one. The Race comprises 47 events in 26 countries over 4 continents. Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia are the only feasible winners.
Rose has won tournaments on his last two starts and that run has put him in great shape to win the Race To Dubai for the first time. He won the WGC-HSBC Champions and then backed that up by winning the Turkish Airlines Open. He played his closing round in an impeccable 65 strokes and is now second in the latest standings for the concept that replaced the money list. Rose will win the Race to Dubai if Fleetwood doesn't win and he finishes in second place alone or better.
Fleetwood is the odds-on favourite (2/5 with Boylesports) to win the Race to Dubai but looks vulnerable. He will be the top player in Europe if he wins the DP World Tour Championship. However, he can still clinch the title if Rose finishes outside the top 5 and Garcia doesn't prevail this week. This week's host course requires long driving and that suits Rose more than Fleetwood.
Garcia looks no value at 16/1 with Paddy Power to win the Race. He has to win the Tour finale in Dubai and hope the two players ahead of him in the standings do not pick up a substantial cheque. Rose seems determined to win most money on the European Tour this season and is the value bet at odds-against. Fleetwood is not playing confidently enough to settle the issue in Dubai.
There are still 43 players who can finish in the top 10 of the Race to Dubai and earn some of the million bonus pool cash. Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson could make the top 10 but are both absent this week. Former winners at the Jumeirah Golf Estates course in UAE are Matthew Fitzpatrick and Lee Westwood.
Golf Betting Markets
Betting on golf is similar in many ways to betting on horse racing, in that the main betting aspect of the sport is based around a single market with a large number of runners. Most golf bettors will place their golf free bets as either a win single or an each-way bet on the outright winner of a tournament, as is done in betting on a horse race.
There are however, many more peripheral markets in golf betting. Punters can use their golf free bets to back the leader at the end of round 1, 2 or 3, the winner of any particular two-ball or three-ball, the overall winning score, the overall margin of victory, 72-hole match bets plus plenty of player specials. Other markets include:
- Will there be a hole in one?
- Will there be an albatross?
- Top 5 finish
- Winning nationality
- Top European
- Top American

- Jordan Spieth (USA)
- Hideki Matsuyama (JPN)

Betting on Golf Majors
Golf’s four majors attract more attention on an annual basis, and consequently more golf free bets, than any other event in the golf calendar. The Masters, The US Open, The Open and The US PGA Championships are the events that all the pros want on their CV with all the world’s top golfers honing their preparations in order to peak at these events.
The Masters is the first Major of the season and takes place in April at Augusta. The winner is awarded the famous green jacket and is presented with it by the previous year’s winner. The Open Championship is the only one of the four Majors that takes place outside of the USA but certainly carries the most prestige. The Open is entwined in the history of golf and all of the game’s great players have their names etched on the famous Claret Jug. The Open Championship is undoubtedly the most popular of golf betting events throughout the season.
Away from the four Majors there is plenty of action for punters to use their golf free bets on. The European Tour’s Race to Dubai has twists and turns on a weekly basis, as event winners move up the money list moving others down the pecking order, while across the Atlantic there is similar jostling for position throughout the season in the FedEx Cup.
In Ryder Cup years punters can also use their golf free bets to predict which players will make either the US or European teams. Each team captain has the opportunity to pick a handful of players, but the majority of each team is made up of the best performing players over the course of the season leading up to the event. Then once the Ryder Cup arrives bettors can, of course, bet on every aspect from the overall winner to the winner of each individual four-ball, foursomes or singles match-up.
