Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

This week on the European Tour, it’s the BMW PGA Championship.

This event takes place in Surrey, England at the Wentworth Club Golf Course. It was first established in 1955 and has had various names over the years.

Rory McIlroy won last year by 1 stroke, defeating Shane Lowry. That was the first time Rory had won the event. He has played it a total of 7 times and his best finish previously was 5th. He’s actually missed the cut 3 times – and the odds of 11/4 on Rory to win are well – surprising to say the least.

One good thing about this field is that at most books – in particular – they pay the Top 6 for E/W.

We’re also hoping to continue our winning ways, after Miguel got us this great cash this week:


FYI – with his current form, we think it’s fair to place another bet on him this week.

BMW PGA Championship 2015 Betting Tip #1: David Howell

Howell is coming into this on some fantastic form. In his last 3 tournaments he has had 3 Top 5 places, with a 4th, 2nd and 2nd.

Unfortunately, his history on this course is rather spotty. A decade ago he actually won it, following up from a 4th the year before. However since then he has had a torrid, torrid time. He’s had 3 missed cuts in a row, as well as places in the high 60s.

Howell is still in tremendous form however and he’s topped this course once before. We think it is worth a half unit bet on Howell.

Bet: David Howell Bet To Win E/W. Half unit bet. Top 6 pay at Bovada for Americans.

BMW PGA Championshiop 2015 Betting Tip #2: Luke Donald

We’re now going to go the opposite way; an off-form golfer who has had a great time at this course.

Luke Donald has just dominated this course. Since 2010, he has had a 2nd place, a 3rd place and two wins. Just some absolutely tremendous form. However he is of course off form big time in the tournaments he has played in. Don’t worry about that. He has came into this tournament in poor form before, and yet did the business.

With his history here, Donald is an easy bet.

Bet: Luke Donald Bet To Win E/W. has the best odds for Donald at the moment.

Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
