Established in 2009, Golf Betting System has provided golf punters with a full range of golf betting information across the Major Championships, European Tour and PGA Tour for over 7 years now. Our tournament previews, which are usually published each week on a Tuesday, cover every European and PGA Tour event on the schedule but there's far more to the site than just weekly previews and tips. All Golf Betting System content is free to the reader, so take a walk through Golf Betting System's rich content starting with our views on the best golf betting sites out there:
Paul Williams' detailed best bookmakers for golf betting page - click here for the full article - takes you through the whole subject in real detail and is well worth a read if you're new to golf betting or a seasoned punter. In essence golf betting can take many forms and there are a number of different angles that can be exploited depending on your betting style and preferences.
Monday Best Prices - Golf betting markets are generally established on a Monday for European/PGA Tour tournaments which again generally start on a Thursday. For those who are prepared and know their player shortlist early enough, the very biggest odds are always available from late Monday morning until bookmakers get a feel as to where the early money is going.
Canny golf punters often wait till later on a Monday afternoon when both Betfred and Stan James establish their prices. Both firms have golf odds compilers who are prepared to build their markets based upon their own views, so you often find outstandingly big odds at both:
Open a betfred account using this qualifying link and get the bet £10 get £30 plus 30 free spins offer using code SPORTS60
Open a stan james account using this qualifying link and get a £/€10 free bet, no promo code required
Additional Each-Way Places - Value hunters abound in golf betting and big price each-way betting is a very popular way of beating the bookmaker. Take 2015 for example where big-priced winners prevailed across a number of World Golf Championship, European Tour and PGA Tour events:
Nineteen winners at 150/1 or more tells its own story and naturally there were numerous each-way returns at big odds on top of those winners.
It's well worth remembering that with standard golf each-way betting, 1/4 odds on the Top 5 finishers is paid out. However week in, week out, Paddy Power give extended extend each-way terms and if the price is good enough then betting 6 or 7 places rather than 5 is an absolute no-brainer.

Back in 2008 in a corporate office somewhere in the south-east of England three individuals had a conversation around golf tournaments and their outcomes. Tournament results seemed quite random to the untrained eye but with huge odds available could statistics actually help to predict results and drive profit? The result of these discussions was the pre-cursor to the current Golf Betting System Predictor Models, which even in the very earliest days showed real promise. So much so that when Golf Betting System launched in 2009, a developed version of the predictor model was released to the betting public as well.
Still a totally unique free tool on the internet, both our European Tour and PGA Tour predictor models are available each and every week from January to the close of the European Tour season in November. They are free to access and use, so you can pull together your own tailor-made predictor models based upon the variables which you feel are key for each particular tournament. A fantastic tool for looking at a golf tournament field which can be up to 156 players (or more in some cases) and using statistics to highlight key players who shout suit the test.
Both Paul and Steve use the predictor models extensively in their research for their weekly betting previews and they release their published predictor models each and every week. You can view the 2015 Profit and Loss with 2015 generating +£917.20 from 16 winners in total across both Tours. Archived predictor models for 2014-2016 can be seen here.
We provide statistics, statistics and even more statistics for free across each Major Championship, World Golf Championship, European Tour and PGA Tour event. Current form matched with tournament form is critical for plenty of golf punters so we provide that analysis on a weekly basis, with tournament average score by player. However our specific First Round Leader and Top 20 statistics are 100% unique and are tailored for punters who love a bet in those particular markets.
Our weekly statistic archive for 2016 is here.

Official Tour sites are naturally an excellent source of information. For those that bet regularly on the two main Tours, it's also extremely beneficial to follow the results in the Minor Tours across Asia, Japan, South Africa and the web.com/Challenge Tours. Plenty of players now play across a number of Tours and strong form in a regional Tour event can often translate to a contending performance when they 'step-up' to a Main Tour, especially on the European Tour which visits Australia, China, India, Malaysia, South Africa and Thailand. Plenty of these far-flung European Tour tournaments are now co-sanctioned allowing players with excellent local knowledge and conditions experience a real advantage.
The Official World Golf Rankings - OWGR is excellent for detailed results information and for those looking for a single site which provides live leaderboards across all of the world-wide Tours look no further than scoreboard.com.
We don't officially cover the LPGA, although we have been providing an embryonic LPGA predictor model on our Facebook forum. Undoubtedly though, the level of betting on Ladies golf is increasing all of the time and there is masses of profitable betting expertise available via our Facebook forum.
