Why should I bet on Golf?
Betting on golf can be one of the most profitable past times as it allows punters the chance to take big odds before a tournament and cheer their player throughout the four days of action. A pre-tournament golf bet will give you an interest in the competition all the way through the weekend and with bookmakers usually offering generous Each-Way terms there is often a big chance of getting a payout on a Sunday evening.
The format lends itself to betting and trading
Golf is a sport that demands patience and concentration and that's also true for those betting on golf tournaments. There is the option to bet pre-tournament but then also the shot-by-shot nature of the game allows plenty of time for In-Play betting and trading.
The Betfair exchange sees millions of pounds traded on every golf tournament and there are several ways that punters can profit from In-Play golf betting.
There is the chance to hedge positions at the end of every round, either when your chosen player has finished or when the day's action is over, or else you can trade stroke-by-stroke as a missed putt or a wayward drive can have a huge effect on the odds in-running.
