Betting on various international golf tournaments can bring huge returns due to the massive force involved for example a favourite for the US open will be in the range of 10 to 1 meaning a £10 that will return £100 profit. Rank outsiders will often be in the range of one or even 200 to 1. In the last US open in 2015 Tiger Wood’s teed off with odds of 70 to 1. Although he was nowhere near favourite this will still pretty impressive odds. Jordan speith who ended up winning the tournament started off as favourite at around 7 to 1.
Almost all bookmakers run special offers during the time of major golf tournaments, for example offering enhanced placed terms for the first six places. This means if you make an each way bet your golfer only has to finish in the top six places to see the return. Betting each way is very popular in golf due to the longshot nature of each bat, usually each way bets pay quarter ports so if a golfer tees off at 100 to 1 and you bet £10 each way for a total of £20 and he finishes fifth your £10 each way bet is a winner at 25/1 so it pays £250. If he wins the tournament at a hundred to one you obviously win the win part for £1000 as well as the each way bet for a further £250.
As you can see betting on golf offers incredible returns. But picking a winner from hundreds of runners is incredibly difficult and not for the faint of heart. Generally I prefer to spread my bets on multiple bank outsiders. When betting on the favourite or second and third favourite I still prefer to go each way as you may pick a winner as well as a runner-up. Remember to always shop around for the best odds, for example, Lee Westwood was available at 50 to 1 on bet365 but on betfair he went off at a hundred to one. As you can see by shopping around you can essentially double your return.
As well as these enhanced odds offers almost all bookmakers offer signup bonuses and ongoing loyalty rewards for extra value so if you haven’t gotten accounts use the links on this site and you will get the maximum possible bonus.
