Betting on the winner is the simplest type of golf bet. You’re simply picking one player to win before the tournament begins.

Other markets that are popular with golf gamblers include the following:


The Masters

The PGA Masters is the first golf major of the year and starts in April. The event takes place at the Augusta National Golf Club (a par 72 championship course of 7,475 yards) in Augusta, Georgia.

The Masters began in 1930 when the newly retired Bobby Jones met with an investment banker from New York called Clifford Roberts. The two decided to construct a championship course in Augusta and hired Alister Mackenzie – a top golf course architect – to bring the Augusta National to life.

Over the last 90 years, the Masters has grown to become arguably the best tournament in the world. Past winners include the world’s greatest players, such as Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Phil Mickelson, and many others.

The current champion and holder of the green jacket is Hideki Matsuyama, who became the first man from Japan to win a major championship.


PGA Championship

The PGA Championship is the second major of the year and takes place in May on the weekend before Memorial Day. The 2022 PGA Championship (May 19-22) will take place at the Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Okla. Unusually, this is a par 70 course over 6,968 yards, a short but tough challenge.

In February 1916, the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) was formed in New York City. The first PGA Championship took place in October 1916 at Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, New York. The winner, Jim Barnes, received $500 and a diamond-studded gold medal.

In 2021, at the age of fifty, Phil Mickelson became the oldest major winner in history by winning the PGA Championship. Gene Sarazen is the youngest player to win the PGA Championship at 20 years, five months, 22 days in 1922.

Four golfers have won the US Open four times: Willie Anderson, Bob Jones, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus. The youngest winner was John J. McDermott at the age of 19; Hale Irwin became the oldest winner when he won the competition in 1990.

Tiger Woods holds the record for the biggest margin of victory with an astonishing fifteen strokes winning lead when he dominated at the 2000 US Open. With the world’s best players taking part, and the biggest prize fund available, the US Open is always a spectacle.

The Open Championship

The Open Championship is the oldest golf tournament in the world, having been founded in 1860. It is played in Great Britain to find the “champion golfer of the year”. The Open Championship has always taken place on links courses built along a coast with heathers, bunkers, and uneven fairways. As it is the last major of the year, it gives pro golfers one last chance to win one of the year’s majors.

2022 will see the 150th Open is played at St Andrews (known as the home of golf). Collin Morikawa will be defending his championship after producing a magnificent display to win the 149th Open at Royal St George’s by two shots.

Given the history of The Open, and the guaranteed drama that an elite field will produce, the competition is always one of the most popular golf gambling events of the year.

The Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup is the original golf team competition where players represent their country and features competing teams from Europe and the United States. The competition takes place every two years, with the venue alternating between courses in the United States and Europe.

Europe won The last Ryder Cup tournament in 2018 at the Le Golf National course. The Ryder Cup’s 28 matches of singles and pairs are played over three consecutive days starting on a Friday. On Friday and Saturday, there are four four-ball matches, and four foursomes matches each day. On Sunday, there are 12 singles matches, which usually decide the winning team of the tournament.

Given the unusual nature of the event (two teams competing), the type of bets and odds available are wide-ranging and bring an element of fun that is missing in the other majors.


Solheim Cup

The event has rapidly grown into the most prestigious team competition for women’s professional golf. The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten and Louise Solheim – the creators of Ping golf equipment.The current holders are Team Europe, who narrowly won in Ohio in 2021 to retain the trophy.


Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do golf moneyline odds work?

    When looking at golf betting odds at your online sportsbook, you'll see all the players have a number next to them that either starts with a minus sign or a plus sign which represents the odds for $100 bet.

    A plus sign reflects what you win if you bet $100. e.g if a golfer is +1000 to win a golf tournament, you would win $1,000 on a $100 bet. Most golf lines will be + given the size of the field.

    With a minus that’s the amount to bet to win $100. E.g. -500 to win means bet $500 to win $100 in return, getting a total of $600 back.
