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.

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).

What a great bloody week it was last week. Just a huge week for the golf betting tips and I hope you all enjoyed that one.

We had Dustin Johnson to win the Genesis Open and he did just that in commanding fashion:

That was a great win in a very tricky field. However even bigger than that was our pick of Brett Rumford in the Super 6.

Even though he was dominating with the combination of stroke/match play I was worried. I didn’t have to be as he came home for a HUGE payday:

Hope you were all on that one!

This week we’ve got the Honda Classic and Joburg Open to turn our attention to. We’ve got a lot of new subscribers this week so quick note that I will often recommend quarter unit and half unit bets and very rarely will I do a full unit. Golf is a volatile sport to bet and it can be tricky.

My own betting units are $400. So half of that is $200 and a quarter is $100. When I bet to win and E/W for a quarter unit that means I do a unit risk of $50 and as it’s two bets that’s $100. If it doesn’t make sense just e-mail me or reply in the comments.

I also usually bet to win and each way. That means that if they place we get money as well – usually in the Top 5. Any of the sportsbooks in the table above should accomodate that bet.

Let’s see what we’ve got:

Honda Classic 2017 Betting Tips:

Graeme McDowell: A 1/4 unit bet on Graeme McDowell to win and E/W. While his performances haven’t been great lately he’s still making the cuts at the tournaments and has had some fine form at this course in the past. Just one of those courses that seem to naturally fit McDowells style.

Russell Knox: Another one with some fine form here and I’m happy to bet 1/4 unit on him to win and E/W. Knox had a very poor showing at the Phoenix Open but I liked the way he opened the year at the Sony Open and Tournament of Champions and I’m hoping he can find that form again.

Adam Scott: With none of the big names in this one, Scott is rightly the favourite here. I’m not totally sold on him but I’d think he should be up there and at 12/1 it makes it a decent enough play. 1/4 unit on Scott to win & E/W.

Justin Thomas: I’m not fully sold on Thomas but he performed well here last year and the price is right on him considering his performance at the Genesis Open. He was solid with a good last day and I’m hoping he’s just heating up. 1/4 unit to win and E/W.

Joburg Open 2017 Betting Tips:

4 bets which are all a quarter unit to win & E/W.

– George Coetzee
– Thomas Aiken
– Anthony Wall
– Justin Walters


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!
