With the 2012 Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes almost upon us, Golf Betting System have been searching the bookmakers to find the best deals on offer. The Open is a huge event for UK bookies and this means extra value to you, the golf punter! For additional place offers at this year's Grand National read or each way offers page.
A typical PGA Tour or European Tour event has each way terms of 1/4 odds for the first 5 places. This means that if you bet each way and your player comes 2nd to 5th you'll still get 1/4 of the win odds (reduced if there's a tie 5th place). To make things a little easier at The Open, a number of bookmakers are currently extending this offer to the first 6 or 7 places - meaning extra opportunities to get a return!
At the time of writing, no bookmakers had extended their each way terms to 8 places, however if they do we'll publish all the details here once they are confirmed.
Paddy Power have exclusively increased their free bets offer to GBS readers to £/€20 free bet: claim you free bets here! Plus Paddy Power are already offering 7 places each way at The Open - full details and prices here!
Why choose Paddy Power for your golf betting? Firstly, they extended their each way terms at all 4 Majors in 2011 - including offering 7 places each way at the 2011 Open Championship.
