The USPGA Championship gets underway at Whistling Straits on Thursday and many bookmakers are offering special betting offers and free bets on the event .
The USPGA is the fourth golfing Major every year and this year is perhaps the most open tournament in recent memory . The recent wayward form of World Number 1 Tiger Woods is the main reason for this although Phil Mickelson , ranked just behind Tiger in official rankings has been quite erratic since winning the Masters in April .
The most consistent player in the world , Lee Westwood misses the PGA Championship through injury .
These natural dips in form and injuries do mean great odds are available and bookmakers as usual have teed up some great offers .
Two bookmakers , Blue Square and 888sport are offering enhanced each way betting of 1/3 odds for the first six places .
Boylesports are offering to refund your losing stakes on the tournament if Tiger Woods wins the USPGA . Whilst this may seem unlikely Woods is second favourite for the Tournament and still World Number 1 . Boylesports are also offering all new customers who register a new account a £40 free bet ! .
Independent online bookmakers Stan James and Betfred are offering to refund losing bets to customers whose selections are beaten in a play off .
In such a competitive event it is very wise to bet each way and bar Mickelson and Woods almost all players can be backed at 20/1 or higher so it is sensible to back maybe 2 or 3 players to small stakes .
As always terms and conditions apply to all offers and customers should check these before taking advantage of some great promotions .
