What Types of Bets Are Most Popular?
Just as with many other major sports, there is a good amount of variety for the types of wagers golf fans and bettors can make. If you're looking to make some money, you can place, for instance, a 'win bet' (it's exactly what it sounds like), a 'versus the field' bet (this type of bet typically comes into play once a favorite has been determined), or a 'head-to-head matchup' bet (a great option for those who really know their golfers). There are also the ever popular futures bets and prop bets to be made (perfect for the less experienced bettor).
What Are The Major Tournaments?
There are two main tours that bettors can wager on: the PGA Tour (played mainly on American soil) and the European Tour (played mainly across, you guessed it, continental Europe). The best golfers from each tour get to tee off in the four Majors every year: the Masters, the US Open, the Open, and the USPGA Championship. These Majors are certainly the most popular golf betting events out there, with lots of opportunities for fans and bettors alike to join in the action!
