The sport of golf is incredibly popular, not only with spectators, but also with people who have no interest in the game apart from a betting interest. Why? For several good reasons:
- Golf is a year-round sport. Hardly a week goes by without a tournament being held in some part of the world, and this gives bettors an enormous amount of action to choose from.
- It's an individual sport. You don't need to worry about how team members will play together or whether the manager will play a good formation. In golf, you're betting on the proven ability of just one man against the field.
- Information is widely accessible. Not only can you many golfing events live on television, you can access a wealth of statistical information that can help you analyse trends and patterns and thereby make more logical betting decisions about future events.
The variety of bets that can be placed during a golf event is impressive. Not only can you bet on the outright winner of a tournament, you can also bet on individual rounds, superiority among two or three players (known as "match bets" and between larger groups, such as nations ("group bets").
One of the most profitable bets for the knowledgeable golf follower is the two or three ball bet, where for betting purposes two or three golfers are pitted against each other for a single round. The golfer with the lowest round wins, and if you correctly select him then so do you. If you know the game well, two-ball and three-ball betting can be used to dramatically increase your profits from almost any golfing event - and it's fast. Choose wisely and just eighteen holes stand between you and another winning bet.
