With the recent growth of Daily Fantasy Sports in golf, the sport of golf has drawn a following that now not only plays DFS but also wagers on the sport. Golf provides viewers the ability to bet on who will win the specific tournament, who will be the leader at the end of the first round, who will finish higher between two golfers and many future bets for various large major tournaments such as the Masters and the overall FedExCup Points Winner.
Betting on golf is not only fun and creates excitement but it is also odds based so the profit and loss margin can be in the gamblers favor. For example, if you were to put $100 on Cameron Smith to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions Golf Tournament at 85/1 and he would win the tournament, you would win yourself $8500! Those are not untypical and happen several times throughout the year of golf.
Golf in it of itself is fun to play, but in most situations is boring to watch unless you have a reason to root for a specific golfer, like placing a wager with the hopes of cashing in bigtime!
