Golf free bets, betting tips and offers: October 2020

There are few better ways to watch sport than tuning in to the last round of a big golf tournament with a player you have backed with the bookmakers in contention going into the last few holes.

While golf is a global game it is these days totally dominated by the PGA and European tours, although with even casual fans watching events such as the Masters and the Ryder Cup.

Golf free bets are a great way to enjoy the action – check out the complete freebets.co.uk guide.

Golf betting update – October 2020

Although golf is firmly back, the schedule still remains upside down and that is why we are talking about The Masters in October.

The major event takes place in November, but now is the time to be watching players ahead of that tournament, to see who is playing themselves into form.

A number of Europeans will be in the UK for part of October with the BMW PGA Championship and Scottish Championship taking place on October 8 & 15 respectively.

Right at the end of the month over in the US we have the Bermuda Championship and this is certainly an event to watch with The Masters in mind as players get themselves ready for the big one.

How to get golf free bets

A punt on the biggest tournaments of the year is very common for sports fans, with golf free bets the ideal way to get a risk-free slice of the action from the bookmakers.

All of the top bookies make free bets available to new customers, which means anyone who does not already have an account with them can sign up with generous welcome promotions.

Usually, to get these deals people will have to make their first deposit then place a qualifying wager on whatever they like, with this bet typically having to be placed at certain minimum odds.

But that is really all there is to it, with free golf bets then credited to your account so you can use them on events such as the Masters, the US Open or even the Ryder Cup.

The whole process should not usually take more than a few minutes to complete.

What to think about when betting on golf

Statistics are increasingly involved in the world of golf betting, so if you have a head for numbers it is easy to get deep into the data in a bid to try to pick a winner.

The previous record of players on a particular golf course can have a big impact on their chances of winning, as golf stars will naturally be more confident on a course that they have recorded a win at before in their careers.

Weather conditions can play havoc with the scores so keep an eye on the forecast – strong winds can make it hard for certain players to go low, while it bothers others much less.

Like in a lot of sports, motivation can be a big factor for golf betting, so keep an eye on players with something to play for, like a place on a Ryder Cup team or a certain world ranking.

Elite stars to watch when golf betting

Freebets.co.uk has picked out three elite golf stars to look out for when betting on the sport:

  • Dustin Johnson – Battling it out for the world number one ranking, Johnson has had a number of near-misses in major tournaments but got his first win under his belt at the 2016 US Open
  • Jon Rahm – Johnson’s main rival in the world rankings right now, Spanish star Rahm was both the Race to Dubai Champion and European Tour Golfer of the Year for the year 2019
  • Rory McIlroy – The pride of Northern Ireland, McIlroy has battled a loss of form in recent years but the four-time major winner is a big threat when the going gets tough on Sunday afternoons

Rising stars to watch when golf betting

Here are three of the rising golf stars to watch when placing golf bets in the future:

  • Collin Morikawa – A surprise winner at the 2019 PGA Championship, Morikawa was launched into the top five of the world rankings as a result – certainly a name to look out for
  • Sungjae Im – South Korea’s Im was named the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, while a stirring performance at the 2020 Tour Championship announced his talent on the grand stage
  • Viktor Hovland – Norwegian Hovland came 12th as an amateur at the US Open in 2019 and he recorded his first win on the PGA Tour at the 2020 Puerto Rico Open

Main golf betting events of the year

Though there are golf tournaments almost every week of the year, the sport’s calendar is dominated by a few big events:

  • Ryder Cup – Taking place every two years, the Ryder Cup sees the United States take on Europe, with the venue swapping between the two teams for each tournament
  • The Masters – Usually the first major of the year, the 2020 Masters had to be put back from April to November as a result of the coronavirus crisis
  • US PGA Championship – Though widely regarded as the least important of the four majors, the US PGA Championship is often a springboard for rising stars to make it into the elite
  • US Open – Low scoring is usually very challenging at the US Open, wherever it is held, helping to justify why it has the largest prize pot of the four major golf tournaments
  • The Open – Typically held on testing links courses, the Open is often thought of as the ultimate test in the world of golf, forcing the sport’s stars to produce their very best game

Golf betting markets to watch

Golf fans have a number of enticing markets to pick from, both for major events and regular tournaments on the PGA and European tours.

Outright winners are a popular bet but it is also common to place wagers on players finishing in the top 10 on the final leaderboard.

Value with the bookmakers is often available when betting on the first-round leader, while it is also possible to bet on which player will come out on top in a particular three-ball.

If you fancy a wager on a hole in one being made, you can bet on this happening in an event.
