How Do You Bet on Golf?

Last Updated:

Betting on golf can be exciting, especially when the stakes are high. In the US, there are several legal options for betting on golf tournaments. The most common way to bet on golf is to wager on the winner of a tournament, also known as an outright bet. You can also bet on the player who will finish in the top three, top five, or top ten of a tournament.

Another popular way to bet on golf is to place a head-to-head bet. This involves betting on which of two players will have the better score over a specific round or the entire tournament. You can also bet on a player’s finishing position within their nationality or on various propositions such as the number of birdies or bogeys a player will make.
