Types of golf bets

There are different types of golf bets, so we’ll take a look at some of them in this part of the guide.

To Win Bets: This is the most popular type of golf bet. In this type of golf bet, you bet on a golf player to win a particular tournament or round.

Versus the field bets: This type of golf bet occurs towards the end of a tournament when there’s a clear favourite golfer to win that’s already leading every other golfer.

Head to head matchups: This is a type of golf bet where a bookmaker picks two golfers, and you get to choose which of the two you think will beat the other.

Golf betting strategies

When deciding on the golfer to bet on the first thing you should find out is the golfer’s current form. You should take out time to study their recent finishes in tournaments. The next thing to do is to study the form course form. Many courses on ET and PGA are used year after year, which means that you can quickly find out if a player has particular liking or disliking for a particular golf course. The third step is to study statistics. While the general and course form is the most essential factor for picking your golf betting strategies, a study of the both the recent and season-long can give you an edge over the sports bookmaker.
