Golf is a favourite sport for
bettors the world over. A game with truly international
appeal, different tournaments are played every week over a
season lasting from February until September. The most
important tournaments to win are the four "Majors": the US
Masters, the US Open, the British Open, and the US PGA.
The US Masters is the only Major that's played at the same
course every year. Every two years a representative team
from the United States takes on a representative from Europe
in the Ryder Cup, a friendly competition that can generate
huge interest in the betting public.
Bettors can bet on the outright winner of any tournament,
but there are also a range of other popular golf betting
options. Players can bet on group betting, where the
different players in a particular competition are played
into different groups by the sportsbook, and the players can
bet on who will have the best result in the tournament from
any particular group.
There are also matchup betting propositions, where different
golfers are matched against each other, the winner being
whoever of them does better in a particular tournament.

point’s difference is also an option, which can make the
final stages of any contest tense. With rugby players like
Brian O'Driscoll and Jason Robinson playing, games change in
