Golf Betting Odds

Online sports betting is not yet active in Florida. This page will be updated with the latest promos, news and odds once Florida sportsbooks launch.

Online golf betting is all the rage these days as more and more states see legal online sportsbooks prosper. Florida is no different as golf is, unsurprisingly, very popular in the state. With over 1,200 golf courses including the Seminole Golf Club, one of the top courses in the nation, you can’t go far in FL without finding a golf bet being haggled over.

Pre-tournament bets account for a big share of overall PGA golf bets at online sportsbooks, but live golf betting is also a big deal—especially for the high-profile PGA majors. Many sportsbook apps even offer live coverage of PGA tournaments right in the app, so you can make shot-by-shot or hole-by-hole live bets and watch them unfold in real time.

Below find what you need to bet on golf online in Florida, including the latest PGA odds direct from FL online sportsbooks plus a guide to all of the golf bets open to you.

How to bet on golf live

Live betting is a growing trend across all sports, and golf is no different. As the action unfolds, you can place live bets on individual holes or specific strokes to increase the stakes.

The most straightforward yet potentially most lucrative form of live betting in golf is betting on the outright winner of a tournament. Depending on how the event plays out, the odds on each golfer may shift frequently and quickly.

Since live golf odds and lines shift so much, you have to be vigilant and ready to pull the trigger as soon as the opportunity presents itself. In that regard, it can help to download a sportsbook’s dedicated app, which will allow you to track and log all the information you need in real time. Here’s how to get started:

  • Head to the sportsbook via the link on this page and look for the “download app” button (it usually appears in the site’s footer)
  • Download the app on your iPhone or Android phone.
  • Tap over to the Golf tab and see what live golf bets are on offer for the weekend
  • Find a golfer or line you like and tap on it to move over to the betting slip
  • Enter the amount you want to bet and see your potential payout
  • Click to confirm at the price you want!

Best golf betting app – DraftKings

DraftKings Sportsbook should be at or near the top of your list for golf betting; DraftKings has an impressive variety of wagers and competitive odds for betting on golf tournaments, in particular a great live betting platform (Flash Bet).

DraftKings has some of the most extensive player prop markets of any sportsbook and that holds true for golf as well. Lines for all of the top players at the Majors are posted well in advance and the in-tournament options as they play out are plentiful. Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup odds markets are also fair.

If you like drilling down into the small details of a golf tournament – from betting on who will best handle Amen Corner to nailing who the top finishing Scandinavian player might be, DraftKings should be your first stop.

How does golf betting work?

Many golf enthusiasts like to have some side action when playing with their buddies to ramp up the excitement on the course. Betting as you play can be an excellent way to keep things interesting, but the trade-off is that you’ll be playing under constant pressure to make your shots, which may affect your performance.

Alternatively, you can go to a legal online sportsbook and bet on golfing professionals to do the heavy lifting, not you. On nearly every sportsbook app you’ll find a host of golf bets, ranging from straight wagers to futures and all kinds of props.

The exact betting menu differs from one sportsbook to another, but here are some of the common ways you can place a wager:

  • Outright winner: Bet on a specific golfer to win an entire tournament. The golf betting odds will appear well in advance of the event, giving you sufficient time to weigh your picks. Given the level of competition, generally, there will be a slew of golfers who can win any given event. This means that you’ll find strong outright futures golf odds across the board.
  • Nationality bets: Here, you’re betting on the home country of the tournament winner rather than on a specific golfer. For example, you could choose Northern Ireland, and if Rory McIlroy ends up winning, you will cash your bet.
  • Head-to-head: As the name indicates, you’re betting on which of the two golfers finishes with the better score within individual rounds or the overall tournament. The sportsbooks may pit Dustin Johnson against Justin Thomas; since both are upper-echelon players, the odds for each to win the matchup could be around -110.
  • Place/finishing position: Bet on a golfer to finish inside the top five, 10 or 20 for a given tournament. These bets have smaller payouts compared to outright winner bets, but are much safer and easier to hit.
  • Hole-in-one: A simple yes or no proposition bet on whether there will be a hole-in-one during a tournament.
  • Versus the field: In events where there is a clear-cut favorite to win, you’ll have the option to take on the remainder of the field and bet that anyone other than that golfer will win. For instance, if Jon Rahm is running away with the tournament going into the last round, you can take the field and bet that someone else will prevail in the end.

Odds on PGA majors

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a tournament with a bigger pull for casual bettors and pros alike than any of golf’s four majors. Betting action is heavy during each of them, as this is when the sportsbooks come up with ways to entice bettors, including free contests, odds boosts and additional types of bets.

Additionally, you’ll find the standard package of straight bets, which you can link together into a parlay for a greater payout.

Masters golf odds

The Masters is the first major in the golf calendar year. The all-time leader in Masters wins is Jack Nicklaus, with six. The most recent winner, Hideki Matsuyama, won the 2021 edition by one stroke over Will Zalatoris as a long shot in pre-tournament odds.

Golf betting odds boosts and promos

Golf betting bonuses are a big part of sportsbooks’ promotional campaigns. From odds boosts to insurance deals, you’ll find all sorts of sports betting bonus offers to enhance your golf betting experience. Here are a couple of examples of the golf promos you may come across:

  • BetMGM online was offering 100-1 odds on any golfer making a birdie for the Masters.
  • FanDuel online offered 20-1 odds on Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or Dustin Johnson to make the cut at the 2021 Masters.
  • DraftKings online gave users 100-1 odds on any golfer to finish in the top 10 at the Masters. For perspective, Dustin Johnson was listed at +100 (1-1) odds to finish in the top 10, and bettors could have bet on him at 100-1.

Betting on other PGA events

Golf is a year-round sport, with competitions taking place all over the calendar. This means that there’s a lot more than just the four majors for golf betting fans to get excited about. Here are a few additional options to keep in mind:

  • Solheim Cup: The Solheim Cup is the women’s counterpart to the Ryder Cup. It’s a three-day match play event held every two years. It features twelve players divided into two teams, representing Europe and the United States.
  • Wells Fargo Championship: A PGA upper-tier event that takes place annually in the spring. It takes place at the challenging Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, and serves as a warmup for the Players Championship.
  • AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: One of the most exciting stops on the PGA Tour, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is held annually at Pebble Beach in California. It pairs top professionals with celebrities and select amateurs.

PGA events in Florida

The Sunshine State is home to some of PGA’s most esteemed events. At the Players Championship, which is often referred to as the “fifth major,” the world’s finest golfers tee off at the iconic TPC Sawgrass golf course in Ponte Vedra Beach. The event is also known for having the biggest purse of all the tournaments in golf.

The Arnold Palmer Invitational, Valspar Championship and Honda Classic are also some of Florida’s many PGA Tour stops. Typically, books will offer online betting odds on these events as well as select odds boosts.

Betting on the LPGA

The LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) is the women’s pro sports association in the US, the equivalent of the PGA Tour. The 2021 LPGA Tour marked the 72nd iteration of the circuit and featured 35 events.

The LPGA tour doesn’t generate as much betting interest as the PGA, so many books do not cover it as thoroughly, if at all. Nonetheless, you should be able to find futures odds for the most prestigious LPGA events:

  • US Women’s Open 
  • ANA Inspiration 
  • Women’s British Open 
  • Women’s PGA Championship 
  • The Evian Championship 

Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup golf betting

The Ryder Cup is hands down the most prominent international men’s golf competition, organized jointly by the PGA and PGA Europe. It takes place every other year, alternating between the US and Europe.

The United States will host the 2021 Ryder Cup on the Straits Course at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin, on the banks of Lake Michigan. The US team will consist of 12 players: the top six in the points rankings and six captain’s picks.

The Presidents Cup is yet another team golf event where elite US golfers square off against an international team, this time consisting of golfers from the rest of the world, minus Europe. It takes place every two years at various courses across the globe. In 2022, the tournament will travel to Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, where the Presidents Cup’s 14th edition is scheduled for play.

Why bet golf over other sports?

What makes golf such an appealing sport to bet on? If we had to point to one specific reason, it would be the variety of betting options.

Namely, the golf schedule is full of tournaments, so there are plenty of options for you to bet on. On top of the four majors — the Masters, the US Open, The Open Championship (British Open) and the PGA Championship — the PGA circuit features more than 40 events, and that’s not counting the Ryder Cup and one-off invitationals.

With golf fans ready to bet, sportsbooks have released a range of new golf props — missed cut, head to head, versus the field, etc. Thanks to a versatile golf portfolio, and the fact that bettors can choose from various tournaments and events, golf betting is taking off.
