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

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.

Golf Betting

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.
