Betting on the European Tour

There are many ways to bet on a golf tournament. The most common is simply selecting who will win the tournament, but with most tournaments running over four days, 72 holes and featuring more than 100 players, there are a multitude of betting options to explore.

Some of the popular golf betting markets include tournament winner, Top 5, Top 10 and Make/Miss the Cut. Here are some of the popular bets you can make for a golf tournament:

Outright Betting: Select who will win the tournament.

Top 5 Finish: Select who will earn a top 5 finish in the tournament.

Top 10 Finish: Select who will earn a top 10 finish in the tournament.

Make/Miss the Cut: Approximately half of the players are cut at the halfway stage of each tournament, who will make or miss the cut?

Individual Matchups: This market puts two golfers against each other, either in one particular round or for a tournament. 

European Tour History

The PGA Tour had been in existence in the United States since the 1930s with the European Tour beginning in 1972. It began with 20 tournaments including 12 in the United Kingdom and one in Ireland. 

The other seven tournaments were national opens, namely the Dutch Open, German Open, Italian Open, French Open, Spanish Open, wiss Open and the Madrid Open. The PGA European Tour has grown since then, with the first event held outside Europe in 1982 being the Tunisian Open.

The PGA European Tour has always been seen as the little brother of the PGA Tour, which offers higher prize money, more prestige and the chance for players to increase their chances in the US majors. 

In 1998 the PGA European Tour added the three US majors to the schedule; the US Masters, PGA Championship and US Open.

Since 2000 the season has started late in the previous calendar year with all the events until late March taking place outside Europe. The Tour then moves back to Europe for summer with some of the most prestigious tournaments being played.

The Rolex Series began in the 2017 season which includes higher prize funds than regular tour events. The tournaments include the BMW PGA Championship, Open de France, Irish Open, Scottish Open and Italian Open.

The three events of the Final Series are the Turkish Airlines Open, Nedbank Golf Challenge and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. The Order of Merit was replaced by The Race To Dubai in 2009 which signalled a new season ending tournament called the Dubai World Championship.

Some of the leading PGA European Tour career money winners are Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Padraig Harrington, Colin Montgomerie, Justin Rose, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Ian Poulter.
