What do I need to bet?

To get betting you need three things:

  • A good knowledge of golf.
  • An online pay account like PayPal or Neteller, a credit card or a UK debit card.
  • An account with a leading UK bookmaker.

You will find a list of links to some of the United Kingdom’s most trusted sports betting brands on the right of your screen. Click through on any of these and you’ll automatically earn a free bet equal to your first bet once you have made a deposit at your chosen bookmaker.

How do I bet?

Betting on golf is easy. Once you have signed up for an account with a quality bookmaker, you’ll need to make a deposit. Now decide what you’d like to bet on. Can you predict the tournament winner or are you better at determining which player will come out on a top in a particular fourball. Choose the market you wish to bet on then place your bet by clicking on the selection/outcome you’d like to back.
Once you have clicked on a selection a betting slip will automatically open up. You can now enter your stake. Once you do so the betting slip will display the amount you stand to win from your bet. If you confirm the bet the funds will be subtracted from your account balance, and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the golf action from the British Open.

What are odds?

Odds reflect the number your bet will be multiplied by if your selection wins in a specific market. If you use decimal odds (3.0), your calculated payout automatically includes your stake. If you use fractional odds (2/1) your calculated payout only details your winnings, which you can add to the stake that is subsequently returned to you.
You’ll find the best British Open odds in the outright markets for the tournament. The major championships are very unpredictable events, which means that some of the best players on the planet are trading at very high odds. The odds on offer in the outright market are so good that you can place an each-way bet and still earn a big profit if your player finishes the tournament in the top five.
