Chapter 4: Before you begin
Before betting on golf, it’s important to have a strong understanding of what to do before you begin, and what impact they might have on your betting.
Betting on golf can be a multi-day affair, with tournaments typically lasting 4 days or longer. The extended betting time makes a staking plan even more valuable.
Being able to spread out your bets will help you bet sustainably and enjoy betting on the tournament for its entire duration.
There are 4 main ways to score in rugby union. ‘Grounding’ the rugby ball in the other teams try-line scores you 5 points. After that, teams have a chance to kick the ball into the goal for an additional 2 points.
Drop goals award teams 3 points. Penalties awarded because of foul play result in a kick at goal for 3 points. This is one of the more common ways of scoring at the elite level.
As with any betting, you will have winners and losers. It’s important to keep a note of your results and determine why the outcome happened.
With the multi-day set up, keeping a record of your bets will help you notice if a specific player is performing above or below your expectations and then adapt your bets accordingly.
Now that you understand what to do before betting on golf, have a look at things you should consider before placing a bet.
