Online Golf Betting
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.
Race To Dubai
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 Rory McIlroy taking the title in 2014 and 2015.
