The Four Major Tournaments
Golf is an absorbing sport, a pastime, game or hobby honoured and respected by millions of people, and the fans are enthusiastic and committed. The four major tournaments of the year, the British Open, the Masters, the PGA and the US Open are some of the largest sporting events in the world, and are watched by millions of people all over the world. There are also of course, thousands of golf bets that are placed for each of the tournaments.
Betting on golf carries a degree of difficulty not often experienced in other sports betting, as the differences in the layout of the golf courses can suit some players more than others, and many of the professional players are not always consistent in their proficiency and flair. There can be a number of unexpected winners each week, and golf bets are therefore often associated with luck, as opposed to the status of the player.
Finding a Good Sports Betting Site
When you choose online betting site to place your golf bets at, make sure there is access to the less well known golf tournaments as well as the big famous ones. A good golf betting site will offer bets on the lesser tournaments, as well as the women’s golf games and pro-am events. Golf bets can be placed on the player you think the most likely to win each tournament, or a matchup between two players. The betting site will post matchups on the site, and punters can select which of the two will be the most successful in that particular tournament. Placing golf bets on players will also increase the excitement and interest when you watch the tournament on television. A top class betting site in New Zealand will also offer some information on each tournament, the different odds available and let you take advantage of any bonuses or promotions they provide.
Having chosen a good sports betting site, and ensuring you appreciate all the finer points of the game and having made an objective analysis of the abilities of each player, you should find placing golf bets a great wagering experience.
