Latest Betting Tips For Golf

The CJ Cup @Summit takes place at The Summit Club in Las Vegas, Nevada, as the event for the second year running is rescheduled from its regular South Korean home to the United States, with flight restrictions still in place. This event is invite only and features a field of just 78 players, with no cut to miss. The course plays to a Par 72 and some 7,431 yards, with some interesting Par 5’s, including the sixth hole that plays to around 614 yards and the eighteen and final hole, which could make or break a victory. Check out a couple of selections below for the event.

The first of two selections is Justin Thomas, who goes in as favourite for the event. In terms of an unfamiliar course, the American’s starts from last season are ideal for this situation, leading with Proximity To Hole From The Fairway, along with Top 5 positions in SG: Approach and SG: Tee To Green. His form has been excellent with two Top 5’s in his last three events and the confidence boost of the Ryder Cup win behind him too. If on form, he will be on tough contender to beat.

The second selection is Collin Morikawa, who may just be able to tilt the event in his favour, due to his membership of the course and thus having the rare commodity of course knowledge. The Open Championship winner, was another huge success at the Ryder Cup and he ranked 2nd SG Approach The Green and 5th in SG: Tee To Green, while ranking 5th again in Eagle Per Hole. Form and course knowledge make him a very dangerous competitor this week.

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.
