What are the best Golf tips?

Whether you’re a newcomer to golf betting or a seasoned pro, Betting.Betfair covers the top golf betting strategies for punters:


Golf betting tips for beginners

  • Be wary of backing new players to the tour
    Of course there are exceptions but it generally pays to avoid betting on golfers that are yet to win a tour event. There is immense pressure on these players to try and win an event to keep their card and prolong their stay on the tour circuit.

  • Consider the each-way betting market to spread your risk
    Instead of betting on a golfer to win an event outright, look to the each-way market which can give you a percentage of your win odds even if your selection finishes in the top five or six. This is one of the essential golf tips for beginners.

Golf betting tips for pros

  • Consider a golfer’s general form
    Even before betting on the likes of Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson, you should check out their recent form. If their recent finishes have been less than inspiring, you may wish to delve deeper into why they haven’t been performing of late.

  • Study which attributes are required to prevail around a course
    Certain courses suit players with certain attributes. Narrow courses with trees lining the fairways require accuracy off the tee, while those with more expansive fairways may offer more scope for big-hitters. Windy links courses also require players to be adept at hitting sound iron shots and using low ball flight.

How can I see the latest golf predictions?

You don’t need to go anywhere else to find the best golf tips. Betting.Betfair covers all the golf majors, as well as the other prestigious events on the PGA and European Tours. We offer detailed form guides to help inform your golf betting strategies, as well as the latest news that could affect your golf picks, and links to the relevant betting markets.


What is the best golf betting strategy?

The best golf betting strategies keep things simple. If you are aware of a golfer that’s well-known for being a fast starter, consider betting on them being the leader at the end of the first round. Ultimately, most golf tournament fields have dozens, if not hundreds, of entrants.

Each way golf predictions are a solid starting point for beginners, giving you five or six places to secure a winner. If you or our Betting.Betfair tipsters find a value selection outright, this could also be an option to boost your bankroll, but don’t expect these to win all of the time – they are usually long odds for a reason!
