Everything you need to know about placing a bet in a Golf Tournament.

Betting on golf is legal and available offline and can be played online as well. Like in other sports and gambling activities, online betting lacks proper laws put in place, but still, there are existing regulations in place that are a work in progress.

Normally, there are three kinds of bets that you can place in any given tournament. These bets are:

  • Bet on the specific golfer to win the entire game.
  • Bet on the player who leads in all three places; in 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions
  • Bet on which player scores higher than the other
