Anybody dabble in gambling on golf?


When it comes to betting on sports I mainly stick to Football. I know enough about it (both College and NFL) to be comfortable putting a little money down on a game or two throughout the year. I'm not big time or anything but every once and a while having a little riding on a game can be fun. I also do the whole draft kings thing as well as it can make even the dullest games interesting throughout the season.


One thing I have never tried however is putting any money down on golf. I don't know the first thing about how to go about it. What to look for? Which Golfers are stronger on certain courses? Who play better in rough weather? Who may like to have a few cold ones the night before a tournament? Do those cold ones help?


I am becoming more familiar as I watch more golf, but still would like to know some things to look for so I'm not just throwing my money away.


Anybody have some tips for a newbie trying to get in to golf betting?


Any big win/loss stories?


Feel free to post them all.


Also, if this falls within a morality issue I can remove this post but just wanted to throw the topic out there for anyone interested.

I bet with buddies and I also do DraftKings. That's about the extent of “betting” on golf

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

so many variables in golf its a lottery on the day, bad bounce or lipped out putt and your money is gone.


A small flutter to make a Major interesting is good fun though

Same here. I know how much to bet or how little to bet depending on the day. And then there are presses.

There were always the side bets, but the laughs were there, win or lose.


The flagrant cheating would infuriate more serious linksters, but golf was always a social game for me and the comedy came with the socializing.  I wasn't good enough to get get super serious about the game, as much as I loved it..


I had my fill of competition elsewhere.  I discovered at an early age that measuring myself against somebody else was a potential distraction from discovering my own potential. 


That carried over to golf, as well.  I didn't mind buying the drinks if I played well but couldn't cover the strokes--as long as I had fun.  It wasn't like we were betting long money.


Same thing with betting ponies or sports book.  It never became a problem because i never bet beyond the entertainment value. 


As for cards, I've never played in a serious money game.  The Rubbers Workers outing was the closest I ever came to that.  They knew which marks from other unions to invite. I just considered it payment for the golf and dinner.


Mostly just family stuff, though, and now that generation with whom I played cards is gone. 


I wasn't cheated when they distributed character flaws, but at least gambling was never a problem.

Before I had a gaming license in Nevada I bet on sports a lot while I was out there. Not so much these days due to license requirements. Best bet was Spieth at 25-1 the year he won the Masters. Turned a $50 bet into some nice new golf gear. Best part was at was at the final round to watch him win it.

Gambling on golf? It's something that I never tested before.. Actually, I would like to know about gambling. Since there are big problems that happen in the country, I wonder if someone from here was unemployed, and if so, how do u solve the money problems in the states? Personally, I am a gambler with two years of experience and actually casinos that have fast and secure payment options and even reputable standing on the online casino market, helps to stay on the feet, even with a minimum wage.. If u would like to know, there is a list of slots not on gamstop here. I wonder how do u guys solve this situation?

Please don't say I didn't warn you, but gambling on golf is not ideal, especially for people new to betting. When I was introduced to betting, my brother recommended I start betting on horse racing, not because it's easy to win but because it's a straightforward type of gambling and not as complicated as other bets. I know the most uncomplicated betting to some people is football games, but I wasn't much of a football fan, so they were no reason for me to bet on football. Now, after these years of betting, I've decided to move to a Live Casino and continue enjoying poker there. And the reason for that is because there's no physical casino in my city.

Nope, but then I never gamble on any sports.  I've known some folks who have allowed gambling addiction create BIG issues in their personal lives.  For me, it's just junk bets with playing friends for dimes and quarters on games like "wolf", KP's, fewest total putts, etc.

I was just looking at golf bets last night. Short look and its not for me. Used to play a ton of cards and played the horses, but I dont part with my money easily on gambling anymore  Vegas 3x in the last few years and I maybe gambled $50. 

My family vacations as a kid was to drive to Reno so I get the thrill but Ive seen the bust a few times. 

I will put a few bucks on the course to keep me focused with certain budddies. 


Good luck

Yes, I've been betting on golf for about five years now. For a beginner, it's going to be difficult. You have to have a good understanding of golf. It's not just the skill of the player that has to be counted on. You have to rely on the weather conditions, the distance of the golf course, the player's previous wins or losses. If you are not that knowledgeable but still want to bet on golf, bet on the player with the lower odds. Because the good bookmakers have all the calculations, I mentioned done by computer. If you don't know which bookmaker to choose, search for the top best http://casinoexpressindia.com/livecasino .
