Golf Betting Tips

Golf is the biggest individual sport in the world, and its biggest tours, the US PGA and European Tour, are watched weekly by millions around the globe. The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland, but the idea of putting a ball in a hole likely goes back to the Middle Ages.
