The Next Big Golf Event On The Calendar

Course Yardage: 7,237 yards

Latest Betting Tips For Golf

The PGA Tour in conjunction with the DP World Tour, plays host to the Genesis Scottish Open, a warm-up for The Open Championship next week. This Par 70 links course runs to around 7,237 yards, but will have less of a challenge, thanks to expected calmer conditions throughout the week and little chance of the traditionally gusty winds. Intermediate rough, is around 2 inches thick, encouraging bigger drives and attacking play, while slower than usual greens also help players to be more aggressive in general. Expect low scores and the cream to rise to the top.

Check out a couple of selections for the event below, with Boylesport offering one 1/5 odds on Up To Twelve Places for the tournament, with a Bet £10 – Get £20 Sign-Up offer too for new customers.

Top Selection

The main selection and favourite is Jon Rahm, with the Spaniard continuing his form since winning the Masters, with a T10 in the Memorial and a T12 in the US Open. He leads the Tour in SG: Off The Tee and ranks 2nd for Greens In Regulation and 4th in Driving Distance. His game suits this course and another win for the Spaniard would not be a surprise.

Secondary Selection

The secondary, but no less important selection is Justin Thomas, I have gone for another relatively short-priced player, due to his record at this venue, having placed in the Top 10 on both visits and shooting a 64 and several rounds of 65 in that time. He ranks 2nd in both SG:Total and Birdie Average on Tour and with a PGA Championship win recently, along with a third in the RBC Canadian Open, he looks to be at the top of his game.

How We Analyze Tips For Golf Betting

Putting together good betting tips for golf can be one of the trickier tasks for golf tipsters as one lousy shot can send a player into a downward spiral of which they never recover. There is also the possibility of a lower-ranked player putting together the perfect few rounds, completely blowing the stats apart, and making golf betting tipsters take note for future events. 

With the anomalies aside, we rely on factual data to put together our tips for golf betting. 

Here are the stats we like to look at most:

  • Average Driving Distance
  • Driving Accuracy Percentage
  • Greens In Regulation
  • Scoring Average
  • Current Form
  • Putting Average
  • Course History

The above criteria can usually shed light on a handful of selections likely to do well in a given event and play a crucial role in selecting our golf betting tip. 

Other statistics can be less obvious, or initially explain very little, but do serve as good guidelines for players abilities. One such statistic used on Tours around the world is “scrambling“. This is avery important measurement of a players ability, that ranks a players ability to score Par or better, after missing the Green In Regulation (GIR).

So for a Par 4, the GIR is two shots. If the player fails to reach the green in that number, but still gets to the green and scores a par score or better, then that is classed as a successive Scramble. So if a player has a high scrambling average, there are two things to note. Firstly the frequency the player is missing the GIR, which is not ideal and more importantly, how often the player can save their Par.

So, to put it more plainly, if a players GIR is low at 50%, then he is missing 50 out of every 100 greens played for. If the Scrambling stat is then 50%, again, that would equate to 25 dropped shots at least, for every 100 holes played, something that would not bode well for backers of this player.

Outside of statistical analysis, things such as travel can be an issue. If a player travels from one side of the United States to the other for an event, or a player on the European Tour flys over to the States, tiredness and fatigue can be a problem, for a sport that relies on concentration and control. Weather can also be a factor, with some players prefering poor conditions or blustery winds.

Even the types of course can be important, from Links courses in Scotland such as St Andrew’s to Sandbelt tracks in Australia like Royal Melbourne, course variations can be challenging for some, while Championship courses, with an almost Stadium like feel, at somewhere like TPC Sawgrass can add further tests of nerve, with huge crowds watching. How a player performs in these environs can be even more important than course knowledge, especially when putting for a title.

What ever the event, where ever it is held, I take into account all facets of the game, that the world of Golf provides and bring the best selections possible for each featured event.
