Betting on golf over the last number of years has grown significantly primarily due to the amount of live TV coverage it gets. Golf has become an every man sport and many people love to use various Golf Betting Offers on their fancy or favourite player.
There are a variety of betting markets on offer, from ante-post winner, to in-play betting, and there are few more exciting betting opportunities than match play golf tournaments.
Both the European and PGA Tours provide plenty of interest and there are always plenty of odds on offer with two tournaments a week taking place, and of course the highlights will be the Major tournaments that are the pinnacle of the season's calendar.
The Race To Dubai effectively replaced the European Order of Merit and it is a hugely competitive part of the golf year. The players are ranked in order of how much money they have earned from European Tour events during the season and it culminates with the Dubai World Championship. The top money earner wins the Harry Vardon Trophy, with Henrik Stenson taking the title in 2013.

The most prestigious events of the season are the four golf majors of the US Masters, the US Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship. Some of the great names in golf have claimed these titles in the past, with the likes of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson prominent in recent years, and the pressure of winning one of the majors cannot be underestimated as it can often define a player's career.

There are four events that make up the World Golf Championships. The events are seen as next in line to the four majors in terms of importance and they all either match or exceed each of the majors in terms of prize money on offer for the players. They all offer their own unique betting opportunity and the Accenture Match Play tournament takes some beating for excitement and drama thanks to its match play format.
The Ryder Cup is an unusual event in golf as it is a team format with America taking on Europe for the Ryder Cup trophy every two years. Like the WGC-Accenture, it involves a match play format and every shot can be vital as the in running odds are constantly changing according to the action. There are a variety of betting opportunities over the three days as the play alternates from eight foursome matches on the first day, to eight four ball matches on the second, and on to the final twelve singles matches that often decide where the trophy goes.
The next Ryder Cup will take in 2014 and you can get the latest information, odds and betting news by visiting our dedicated Ryder Cup Mini-Site.
