Golf Tournaments to Bet On

You can view all the upcoming events on our golf betting page and, once registered, you can start placing your bets on who you favour as the winner of each round for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, or leader after Round X for other tours, or who will be champion of the entire tournament.

Golf Betting Odds

Based on various factors, such as previous losses or wins, the less likely a player is to win, the higher the odds are; and the higher the odds, the bigger the payout is after a win. Each round of the tournament will list the names of the players who are competing, next to these players you will see the updated odds. By using these golf betting odds to your advantage, you can make a calculated decision as to who you want to bet on and what the potential payout is if the odds are in your favour.

Golf Betting Tips

Remember, by familiarising yourself with the players and how they perform throughout the tournament, you can make a well-placed bet on who you think could potentially provide value for your money. Some of the best golf betting strategies include:

Form – by studying the general form of the players based on their recent finishes, you can make an informed bet on how the player will perform in the upcoming tournament.

Course – many famous golf courses are used year after year which enables punters to study how each player performs on each course. This insight gives you the ability to assess the probability of a player winning a round based on the player’s history with the course.

Stats – both golf betting tips mentioned above are very effective in placing calculated bets, however another strategy is to study all season long statistics. Statistics such as driving accuracy can help you determine whether your player is set to win or lose based on what the demands of the upcoming course are.
