The PGA Tour is where America's best golfers go head to head each week all over the United States in a bid to be top of the money list at the end of the season. Qualification for the tour is based on World ranking points and in recent years the tour is much more of a global affair, with many golfers from Europe, South Africa, Asia and Australia competing in PGA Tour events.

The PGA Tour operates the professional golf game in the United States and was formed in 1968. Although the PGA operate the Champions Tour for seniors and the Nationwide Tour for young players breaking through, it is the main tour that holds the majority of betting interest. The players that are competing in the regular weekly tour events are trying to finish in the top 125 of the money list so they can keep their playing rights on the tour for another year. The better players are playing to earn enough money to compete at the Fed-Ex Cup at the end of the regular season. Tournaments are attributed Fed-Ex points each week and the top 125 at the end of the season are eligible for the play-offs where the big bucks are.
As well as regular weekly events on the PGA Tour, the World Golf Championships and all four majors also contribute to ranking points on the money list. Those at the top of the money list gain automatic qualification to these events and in recent years the quality of the fields have been as good as the majors themselves.
Tiger Woods has dominated the PGA Tour for the last decade but there are question marks over his future, while players like Phil Mickelson don't appear to be the force they once were. Players like Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy look to be the big challengers nowadays, and they are just two of several European golfers, along with Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington, Paul Casey and Ian Poulter, who play most of their golf on the PGA Tour.
Betting on the PGA Tour is widely available with all bookmakers listed on the Betting Directory. Check for odds at the beginning of the week as tournaments get underway on Thursdays. You can bet live in-running on most events also which is very popular in golf betting due to the twists and turns of a usual tournament.
The Race to Dubai is the name given to the European Tour and just like the PGA Tour in America, there are tour events all over Europe and the world each week available for you to bet on.
Lee Westwood won the Race to Dubai in 2009, with Martin Kaymer claiming the 2010 title and Luke Donald winning in 2011, with all three amongst the favourites to win again.....
