With fields of up to 156 players, each-way betting is hugely popular in golf. Industry standard is 1/4 odds each-way for players who finish in the top 5, but you can choose to extend the number of places paid out on significantly, with plenty of online bookmakers offering additional places every week. The 4 Major Championships now see selected layers going up to 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds. Weekly European Tour and PGA Tour tournaments has seen a recent revolution in the number of places available, with the likes of Coral and Paddy Power offering up to 7 and 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds week-in, week-out.
We keep a tracker of the total amount of each-way places offered across the year from a golf betting perspective which you can read here. It’s factual, independent research which highlights a number of key bookmakers who give away the very best value consistently.
Undeniably Paddy Power lead the way when it comes to additional each-way places. For full-field events they offer a minimum of 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds, which often increases to 10 places each-way 1/5 odds depending on the popularity of the tournament. For the Major Championships they offer either 8 or 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds and their ability to offer both places and strong odds is second to none. Very often you’ll find that Paddy offer both the best places and a market-leading price, making placement of a bet with them a true no-brainer.

Ideally though, any golf punter who wants to maximise each-way places available has to also have an active Coral Sportsbook account. Both Paddy Power and Coral are virtually inseparable when it comes to each-way places offered across golf and if you have access to both accounts, it’s simply a case of who’s offering the best price on the player(s) you want to back. As per Paddy Power, Coral do not scrimp on prices as well, often being market-leading price in tandem with the additional each-way spots. They generally offer 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds on full-field European Tour and PGA Tour tournaments, plus regularly offer 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds on the Major Championships.
