There are few people who take any thought before they decide on betting on a winner during the majors. Instead they will generally pick a winner for the Masters or Open Championship randomly, however the random tactic might not be the best to use if you are looking to win money when betting on golf.
There are some golf betting tips that you can use.
Golf Betting Tips
1. The Field
When you are looking at backing a player it is a good idea to look at their history in the event or on the course. Also have a look at any of their recent plays so you can take a good measure of how they might play in the particular event or course.
Phil Mickelson for instant hadn’t won a trophy on British soil for 21 years, but he claimed the Scottish Open at Castle Stuarts links to Muirfield. This would have shown what was to come and Mickelson was able to go home with four birdies on Sunday’s back nine.
You should look at the form of the players before making your choice as some players form is not always at the top especially for players that you would normally think would win.
The Irishman, Rory Mcllroy would usually be a safe bet as golf fans as well as those that are new to betting on golf would assume that he is in good form; however this is not true, as the golfer has had a horrible year thus far and probably should not be bet on.
Tiger Woods has won four tournaments so far this year, but his form during the summer has been quite poor meaning that he most likely does not have the odds in his favour.
There are historic biases towards the tournaments own countrymen like that of the PGA Championship with Americans coming out on top more often. In the PGA Championships, 9 of the 14 PGA Championships have made US winners, with four of these going to Tiger Woods since 1999.
In the PGA you will notice that there are usually more Americans playing the field which will then change the odds in any case. If you bet on an American you are almost guaranteed that one of them will be in the chase of the fourth round.
One golf betting tip is that it can be tricky to back a winner in golf as all it takes is one bad shot and the tournament will change. A productive way of winning money is to actually bet on the place.
Adam Scott for instance is a place marker that is reliable as he has finished in the top 10 of majors six times since 2011. This then makes him a good golf bet in terms of place.
You will need to look at all these varying factors as golf betting tips before you choose how and who you will be …
