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.
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.

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.
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.
