Betting on golf can be hugely exciting and potentially lucrative as players who started at very long odds get into contention every week.

Golf Live Streaming – This Weeks Schedule:
Following the shake up to the golf calendar in 2019 the PGA Championship is now the second major championship of the year. The USPGA hope that the move will help the tournament to be held in the same high regard as the other three majors. The PGA Championship has certainly had several high class winners in recent years and is set to visit some of America’s greatest golf courses in the years to come, starting with Bethpage Black in 2019.
The US Open is the third major of the season and is another tournament that has been dominated by American golfers over the years. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are both multiple champions that 2015 winner Jordan Spieth will hope to emulate in the coming years. It is played at various courses State-side and will take place at the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links in 2019 before visiting Winged Foot Golf Club in 2020, the South Course at Torrey Pines in 2021 and the Country Club, Boston in 2022.

The Open Championship is the only major to be played outside the US and is now the final to take place in a calendar year. The current champion is Francesco Molinari who won the Claret Jug at Carnoustie by two shots from Justin Rose. In 2019 the Open will return to Northern Ireland and Royal Portrush. The historic links course is one of the jewels in the crown on the island of Ireland and the likes of Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell will be especially keen to win the Claret Jug there.
Best Golf Live Streaming Betting Sites
Boylesports are one of the best bookies around when it comes to golf betting offers. They regularly attack events on the PGA and European Tours with enhanced place offers. Like Boylesports, Paddy Power also pay out extra places compared to the competition and have an Acca Insurance offer which can be utilised with your golf bets.

Popular Golf Markets to Bet On
There is nothing quite like the thrill that comes with landing the winner of a golf tournament. There’s much more to golf betting than simply trying to predict the winner though.
One of the most popular markets for those who bet on golf is the First Round Leader market. This gives you a chance to lock in a profit from the bookies long before a tournament is over and is also slightly more predictable as the weather and conditions at the course have a bigger impact over one round than four.
As well as betting on players to do well, punters like to make a profit from their golf predictions on players who will struggle. You can do this via the bookies’ To Miss the Cut markets. Other interesting golf betting options include betting on players to finish inside the top five, 10 or 20 on the leaderboard and the shot winning margin.
Popular Golf Bets
- Each Way Betting – The large number of competitors and difficulty in predicting the winner makes each way betting an important option for punters betting on golf
- Extra Places – If you are backing golfers each way make sure to look out for extra place golf betting offers as these can make all the difference if the player you back is on the cusp of the places
- Match Bets – These are bets on which of a group of three or two competitors playing their rounds together will shoot the lowest round. Whilst the odds are shorter match bets are more predictable and can be combined into accumulators
Golf Live Streaming
It is rare to find the majors, PGA or European Tour events streamed live with the bookmakers. The PGA Championship has been available to stream in recent years but it doesn’t look as though that will be the case in the future.
Thankfully, PGA Tour Live provide the first part of their live streams for free on Twitter whilst the official Masters website has every shot from every player available to view just minutes after being hit
Golf Betting Odds
We still have three of 2019’s major championships to enjoy starting with the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. Following on from his incredible win at the Masters, Tiger Woods is the favourite for 2019’s second major at 10/1 with bet365 whilst Dustin Johnson (11/1), Rory McIlroy (12/1) and Brooks Koepka (12/1) are also being well backed.
The same names can be found towards the top of the betting for the US Open with Woods as short as 6/1 in places thanks to his previous form at Pebble Beach. McIlroy is vying for favouritism with Woods for the Open Championship with defending champion Francesco Molinari attracting support at 16/1 with Ladbrokes.
Golf Predictions and Tips
Golf fans have gone a bit Tiger Woods mad since his win at the Masters. Now that he has finally added to his tally of major championships the question is whether he can draw level with or even surpass Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 major championships. He will do very well to win another major this year but you can never write Woods off and his best chance is surely at Pebble Beach so the 9/1 that Sportingbet on him looks fair enough.
Rory McIlroy hasn’t won a major since 2014 and he would dearly love that to come to an end at Royal Portrush. He may find that test of links golf doesn’t best suit his strengths but McIlroy may well return to Northern Ireland with another major championship on his CV as he is surely playing well enough to be a real contender in the PGA Championship art 12/1 with Unibet.
The Open Championship is likely to go to a player with bags of previous strong links form who can control his ball flight in the wind. Tommy Fleetwood ticks those boxes nicely so he is a good price to win his maiden major championship at 25/1 with Coral.
