Golf is a favorite sport for bettors the world over. A game with truly international appeal, different tournaments are played every week over a season lasting from February until September. The most important tournaments to win are the four "Majors": the US Masters, the US Open, the British Open, and the US PGA. The US Masters is the only Major that's played at the same course every year. Every two years a representative team from the United States takes on a representative from Europe in the Ryder Cup, a friendly competition that can generate huge interest in the betting public.
Bettors can bet on the outright of any tournament, but there are also a range of other popular golf betting options. Players can bet on group betting, where the different players in a particular competition are played into different groups by the sportsbook, and the players can bet on who will have the best result in the tournament from any particular group. There are also matchup betting propositions, where different golfers are matched against each other, the winner being whoever of them does better in a particular tournament.
