BET ON GOLF
Golf is thought to have originated in Scotland around half a millennia ago, but historians believe that similar games were played for up to 1,000 years before that and a lot of its history is debated. Initially, the game of golf, as we know it today, was limited to Scotland and played with a leather ball filled with feathers. In the middle of the 19th century, thanks to the creation of the railways and a royal obsession with Scotland, the game came to the attention of many Englishmen and women. This coincided with the invention of a new ball made from a type of latex. The ball was cheaper, easier to mass produce and much better, and this helps the game to explode in popularity. Based on spectator numbers, golf is said to be the 10th most popular sport in the world and is at its most popular in North America and Western Europe. It’s an easy game to learn and it’s also relaxing, requiring no heavy exercise and impacting very little on the joints. The goal of golf is simple: players just need to get the ball into the hole in as few shots as possible, with the winner being the one who takes the least amount of shots to go around the entire 18 holes.
THE BIGGEST GOLF EVENTS
There are a number of big events throughout the golfing calendar and these are hosted at golf clubs all over the world, from windy Scotland to sunny Florida. The biggest golf events tend to be split between the UK and the US, but they can take place across Europe and Asia as well. One of the biggest events on the calendar is The Masters, which has been running for many decades and serves as a showcase for the elite players, with the winner securing the famous Green Jacket. The PGA Championship is also a leading event and one that the stars of the game tend to favour, while the US Open is often seen as a more challenging tournament and one that literally anyone can win due to its wide open qualification system. These tournaments form three of the four major championships in the sport, with the fourth being The Open Championship, or the British Open, as it is also known. Other events include the Ryder Cup, a team-based competition that is contested between the best players from the USA and the best players from Europe.

How to bet on Golf
There are a number of different ways that you can bet on golf. One of the most popular of these is known as an Outright bet. This is where players place their money on the golfer (or the team, in the case of the Ryder Cup) they think will win the entire tournament. This bet can be placed pre-tournament or in-play, but bear in mind that the odds may shift significantly once the event has started and it is also prone to occasional suspensions and odds changes. You can bet on whether a golfer will win the tournament or whether he or she will finish in the top 3 or the top 5. You can also bet on who will be top of the table at the end of a single day of play and there are a number of prop bets to experiment with as well.
