While this type of betting has high odds, predicting the best player is quite difficult. The number of tournament participants may reach 144 golfers.

Betting on position

You predict which place the golfer will take in the tournament table.

Betting on profit margin

You predict whether the tournament will end ahead of schedule, in how many strokes the winner will win, and difference between the winner’s and the runner-up’s number of strokes.

Betting on country’s best golfer

At major golf events, some bookies offer a special bet. You need to predict the best golfer among the players competing for the same country. Each player has their individual odds, depending on their skillset and experience. The odds may be as high as 25.0 —30.0.

This type of bets are available at all major golf events. For instance, you predict when the golfer will end their career or weather conditions for a certain game.

Furthermore, you may be lucky to come across rare and profitable bets. These include golf betting on the best golfer in the group, the lowest number of strokes, the winner of a certain championship tour, whether the golfer will proceed into the next tour, total number of strokes during the season, and more.
