Golf Betting

Gambling and betting in sports dates back to the age of Roman Empires and it has been blatantly and relentlessly used as a source of enjoyment in the sports . Betting in sports refreshes the spectator, puts a little life back in the game. And betters who win the bet have nothing but triumph that calls for celebration. Its luck that works but clever people side the winners and somehow they always end up rich. If one desires to experience golf betting by betting on golf during any tournament here are a few things that would enlighten you with how it goes about.

Betting on golf games can be done directly or there is another way of betting on golf that is betting while you are attending a golf tournament. Tournaments are ostentatious and they involve a lot of players and especially famous ones and they are quite different from the ordinary golf games that involve only a few players and their rules can differ. In the tournaments players have to abide by the rules strictly and there are no exceptions. That is the reason most of the people bet on golf during tournaments. This is the simple way of golf betting.

There are other ways you can bet on golf. There is one called the 72 holes betting. When the players are playing a game of putting 72 holes and strangely enough the winner isn’t the one with the maximum scores but the one with the lowest scores! The wagers can bet on them and the winner is always decided in the end. These games always have space for betters because when the game ends in a tie there sill can be a winner. The betters do not have to face disappointment. There still remains however the condition that if the match gets reduced and cancels out before the 72 holes are completed there is no winner. All the betters have to forgo their bets.

The game of golf is played in many different ways. Numbers of holes that need to be putted vary a lot. Ordinarily the game that is played as the 18 holes match is famous. People bet on this one and it simply declares the player who has the lowest scores over the 18 holes. The advantage of betting in golf over other games is, there is very little role luck plays in this game and thus if you bet for the more skilled player, the chances of losing are very little.
