Welcome to Golf Betting System, the United Kingdom’s number 1 independent website for free golf betting tips and a supporting suite of golf betting resources. Driven by founders Steve Bamford and Paul Williams, Golf Betting System provides weekly golf betting tips across the Major Championships, PGA Tour and DP World Tour. We specialise solely in golf betting, providing all of our content for free with the goal of giving you with the very best tournament, course, player, statistical data and bookmaker information to help you with your golf selections for upcoming events.
Golf Betting System was established in 2009 with the aim of promoting profitable golf betting. Developed over the course of 2007 and 2008, we launched with a unique golf betting predictor, an evolved version of which we still feature today. Using a mix of both the predictor output, golf course, player statistics and insight gained from watching golf tournaments, 2009 saw the first year that Golf Betting System covered both the PGA and DP World Tours each week with free published predictor models and golf betting tips.
DP World/PGA Tour Golf Tipsters
Steve Bamford has covered the PGA Tour with his golf betting previews and tips since 2009. Covering over 40 tournaments per season, Steve’s betting previews provide a detailed analysis of every event. Constituents include a detailed appreciation of the course, course designer links and what specific player skill-sets are required to win. Previous tournament champions, their winning totals and historical odds are all included. Steve also details previous tournament weather conditions, a weather forecast, what the likely course conditions will be and how that will affect the likely winning score. Bookmaker of the Week is an important angle for punters, highlighting the very best each-way value offered for each tournament, with Steve presenting his reasoned tips for the tournament. Current and Historical P&Ls are available here.
Paul Williams has covered the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour) with his golf betting previews and tips since 2009. Renowned for his profitable tips – Current and Historical P&Ls are available here – Paul’s knowledge of the DP World Tour courses, tournaments and players is exceptional. That’s no easy task with the DP World Tour featuring a host of new graduates each season and a diverse range of new courses and venues. Paul’s betting previews provide an in-depth analysis of every event. Constituents include a detailed appreciation of the course, what specific player skill-sets are required to win, previous tournament champions, their winning totals, historical odds and analysis, likely course conditions and winning total. Paul also takes time to peruse the betting markets to highlight which bookmaker is offering the very best value for every tournament.
The increasingly popular Golf Betting System Podcast is available pretty much every week from January to November. Hosted by Steve Bamford with DP World Tour expert Paul Williams and podcast pundit Barry O’Hanrahan, the lads discuss each tournament in detail including course descriptions, tournament trends, course conditions, likely weather and their own opinions on players to back.
The podcast has been a hugely popular addition to the Golf Betting System content portfolio, with thousands downloading each and every week across a multitude of podcast platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, Stitcher and Podbean.
Golf Betting Forum
Established in 2009, Golf Betting System has always welcomed feedback, input and knowledge from its readers, listeners and watchers. As early as 2010, we launched our Golf Betting Forum on Facebook. It’s a moderated Closed Group, where you can have your say, voice your golf betting tips or pass on advice to fellow members.
As far as golf betting knowledge and experience is concerned, it’s a forum that’s hard to beat and it’s undoubtedly the busiest golf betting forum on the internet. The group is also the place to enter our regular competitions throughout the season and, if you’re a fan of Fantasy Golf in its various different guises, we run season-long Golf Betting System leagues with cash prizes up for grabs. We always welcome individuals interested in golf betting, so don’t hesitate to get involved – you can join here.
Golf Form Guide
For golf betting form stats and history, our tournament statistics pages are a popular starting point for punters each week. For a regular tournament on the PGA and DP World Tour, 4 standard form guides are produced each week:
Current Form Stats: the field ranked by a player’s average finish over the last 12 events chronologically.
First Round Leader Stats: the field ranked by a player’s average first round score at the event, combined with their first round finishing positions from the last 20 events.
Event Stats: the field ranked by a player’s average score at this event, back to 2002. On occasion this stat is adapted as a course history stat instead if that’s more appropriate.
Combined Stats: a combined view of both current form and event stats for the field.
Our golf form guides are published each Monday and updated with odds and tee times as the week progresses. You can access these using the tournament boxes at the top of the homepage and also via our golf stats section.
Golf Betting Tips And Stats
Golf Betting Predictor
Since our launch in 2009, Golf Betting System has always featured free-to-use PGA Tour and DP World Tour predictor models. Subscription-free, you can use our predictor models as much as you like and as many of your own tailor-made reports as you like free of charge. Steve and Paul also publish a predictor model for each tournament based upon our own research findings. Our predictor models are a fantastic tool to take golf fields of up to 200+ players and use individual player data to produce target lists of players for each tournament. Archived predictor models are here.
Variables include player form, course top 10s, tournament average scores and OWGR. The predictors also include player skill-sets including Driving Accuracy, Greens in Regulation, Putting Average, Putts per Round and Scrambling. Scoring-wise, look for Eagle Performance, Birdie Performance, Bogey Avoidance and tellingly Par 3, 4, and 5 Performance. Our PGA Tour predictor also includes extra variables for results by Green Grass, Course Conditions, Windy conditions, Course Designer and by region within the United States.
