Available Bet Types: Straight Wagers, Proposition wagers, Parlays, Live Wager, Round Robins, Futures, Spread Wagers
Outright Betting: This is the most popular type of wager in Golf. You are wagering on a selection to win the whole tournament. Occasionally players can be tied for places. When this happens we would implement the Dead Heat Rule.
Top 5/10/20 Betting: This is another popular wager type. You are wagering on a selection to finish inside the top 5, 10 or 20 depending on the market you choose. Occasionally players can be tied for places. When this happens we would implement the Dead Heat Rule.
Dead Heat Rule: A dead heat in wagering is when two or more participants tie for a position in an event. This will only affect wagers placed on golfers who 'place', as the winner will be decided by a playoff if necessary.
The calculation is as follows:
Your original stake is divided by the number of competitors involved in the dead heat and multiplied by the full odds.
What you need to know:
If a player doesn't start a tournament, then all wagers on that player are void. But if a player who starts a tournament drops out or is disqualified, that player will be considered to have lost the tournament and wagers on that player will stand.
If the length of a tournament is shortened (i.e. if the last round is canceled due to weather), all wagers placed after the final round that was played are void.
Any wager on a player "to qualify" is considered a win if the player qualifies for the tournament in question, regardless of if they finish first in the qualification round or not.
Wagers on the "victory margin" do not include playoff holes. A victory margin is a wager on how many strokes a golfer will win by.
For 3-ball and 2-ball tournaments, wagers will still stand if players play in different groups or pairings than originally listed.
For 3-ball and 2-ball tournaments in the event of a tie the wagers are deemed to be a loser.
