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.
Latest Golf Betting News
The remaining few weeks of the 2016 European Tour will see things really spice up in the Race for Dubai and this the tour sees itself over in Shanghai for the WGC-HSBC Champions for for the fourth and final of the World Golf Championships event of the year. With a huge prize fund on offer including in excess of one million dollars for the winner as well as the all important points ahead of the season ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, this event could prove pivotal.
Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlroy are currently leading the way in pursuit of the Race to Dubai and it is in-fact McIlroy that is the bookies' favourite for this event. Having taken a couple of weeks of following the Ryder Cup, the Ulsterman will be raring to go at a course where he has always seemed to produce. Dustin Johnson is the second favourite and he is another man with form here. A winner in 2013, he went close to success again last year and there's nothing to suggest it will not be more of the same this time around. Having won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational earlier this year, he is also looking to become the first man since Tiger Woods to record back-to-back wins in WGC events, so there are plenty of omens that favour Johnson favourably.
As well as the two market leaders, there are 40 of the World's top 50 ranked players taking part in China, making for a real a-list field. It's going to be competitive that for sure so good luck in picking a winner!
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
World Golf Rankings

Success in the major's can undobtably lead to a substantial leap in a player's standings so make sure you keep up to date with who's in form as they are sure to be a good idea to use your golf free bet on.

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.
