Free golf betting strategy from an odds compiler

By on September 28, 2019

Following on from the free tennis betting system I shared a couple of days ago, I’ve been asked out golf betting strategies too.

And I do have a strategy I read online a few years ago that was from an odds compiler.

Once again, full disclosure here, I have not used this strategy. I noted it down but as with tennis I just don’t have the interest in the sport to bury my head in the stats.

But if you do follow golf then it maybe something you want to investigate further.

The strategy is based around 2-ball or 3-ball bets.

(Golfer’s go out to play a round in either in two’s or three’s and the bookmakers will offer odds on which of the twosome or threesome will have the best score on the day. These are known as 2-ball or 3-ball bets.)

Bookies tend to give many of these short shrift when pricing-up events. Compilers know all about the stars of the sport, but no compiler has the time to rate 150 to 300 golfers a week properly.

And as a result you can find some great value in 2-ball and 3-ball bets, especially if you focus your betting on golfers that are not right at the top of the sport.

You can find a wealth of information on every golfer on both the American and European tours, and thanks to two excellent websites, it won’t take all day.

The official sites http://www.pgatour.com and http://www.europeantour.com are the one-stop shops for all of the information you need, they are laid out in an easy to read format, and they’re totally free. 

The strategy itself is based around three key stats for a golfer…

1. GIR – Greens In Regulation.

As the name suggests, this figure records the number of greens the golfer reaches in the ‘par’ number of shots allowed to reach that green.

Both the US and the European Tour websites show this figure as a percentage.

So if a player has a GIR rating of 74.30 then he hits 74.3 greens in the regulation number of shots out of every 100 played.

If a golfer has good figures here, he’s probably good value to look after your money, since he’s likely to avoid the hazards that line the fairways.

2. Scoring/Stroke Average.

This figure is the average score achieved by the player so far in the season.

So if a golfer has a scoring average of 68.52, this indicates the average score he takes to go round 18 holes.

This score takes into account all of the measurable parts of a golfer’s game: Driving, Putting, Nerve, Sand Saves (playing out of bunkers) and so on.

3. Recent Form.

Recent form is key in all sports and golf is no different.

You want to note down the finishing positions in the last ten tournaments noting the number of; top 10 finishes, top 25 finishes and missed cuts.

You award 3 points for a top 10 finish. 1 point for a top 25 finish. and minus 1 point for a missed cut.

Then simply add up all the figures.

Putting it all together:

You now have three sets of figures. What you are looking for is a player in a twosome or threesome to have the best figures across the board.

So that would be the highest greens in regulation figure, the lowest score/stroke average and the highest recent finishes score.

Once you find a player that has the best score in each category you simply bet on them to win the 2-ball or 3-ball bet.

It may sound like a bit of a long process but you soon get the hang of it and all the information is readily available online.

So if you have an interest in golf and betting on the sport give it a go, and of course let me know how you get on.

2-ball and 3-ball betting is a big part of Chris’ strategy over at ‘Tee and Serve’.

I don’t know what stats he uses to find his bets but all his hard works pays off – September is looking like it will be his sixth profitable month in a row.

If you want Chris to do all the stat crunching for you then ‘Tee and Serve’ is what you need.

But you only have two and a half days left to get a 70% discount on your membership.
