Online golf betting is now one of the most popular choices for sport bettors. It makes a change from betting on football or horse racing and golf tournaments take place across the world all year round.
To be successful, it helps if you have a really good understanding of the various tournaments and the individual players.
Learning the tournaments will also help you sort through the many statistics. Golf tournament betting is where some of the biggest profits lie, particularly for the PGA golf betting season. However, there are generally more upsets in the early qualifying rounds, so you will want to be tracking players all through the process to watch for trends and weaknesses.
There are many ways to have a golf bet apart from outright winner, there are 72 hole match bets, first/ second round three ball betting and the final two day's two ball markets. Other excellent markets in the Golf Majors are bets such as Top American, Top European, and Top Rest of World. You can also go as far as betting on a hole in one during the event or bet on who will miss the cut.
For real excitement you can't beat following the PGA tour and the Golf Majors; The Masters, US Open, British Open and PGA Championship. Most exciting of all is probably the biannual Ryder Cup competition between the golf teams of Europe and the USA.
Not only is golf a great game to play and watch, it is also a fantastic game to bet on if you are the betting type.
