Who are the best Golf betting tipsters?
Betting on golf continues to prove popular with the betting public with PGA and European Tour events taking place almost every week of the year.
A few years back we done some research on who are the best golf tipsters to follow. The list was compiled based on different factors – level of analysis, regular previews and ability to make suggested bets within a reasonable betting bank.
Of the eight golf tipsters we recommended to follow, six of them are still posting regularly and provide solid analysis with suggested outright bets for the event. Since then, only one other tipster has really shown a consistent level of ability to be considered worth of the title ‘expert golf tipster.
Let’s do a quick recap of the six golf tipsters who continue to deliver weekly analysis of tournaments on both the PGA and European Tour plus a look at a new addition.
Golf Betting System
Run by the duo of Paul Williams & Steve Bamford, Golf Betting System has Predictor models for both Tours which are useful tool for bettors. They also keep detail profit & loss records of all their weekly selections and delivered healthy profits on both Tours in 2018. Twitter @Bamfordgolf @GolfBetting
Mike’s smartgolfbets provides an in-depth source via a golf database which contains data on all current professional players, the top amateurs, tournament results and course notes. The database covers all pro tours as well as the main amateur and qualifying events meaning it’s a must visit destination for serious golf bettors. In addition, Mike will soon be publishing his own prices on select tournaments which will be worth following. Twitter @SmartGolfBets
SportingLife.com (formerly BettingZone)
The SportingLife resident golf expert Ben Coley writes weekly previews of the tournaments on both Tours, often highlighting several live outsiders. Well worth reading, the only negative is that publication of the previews on a Monday evening/Tue morning means that the recommended bets at the suggested prices often mean that it’s impossible for punters to get on. This isn’t Ben’s fault but more to do with the odds compilers at the various sportsbooks unwilling to lay a bet. Twitter @BenColeyGolf
Writing on the Betfair blog, Steve’s bio states that he has been trading golf full time for eight years and he’s been blogging for betting.betfair for six. Rawling’s stable of content features a course preview out on a Monday, an in-play blog with regular updates throughout the 4 days and often a de-brief of the major events. Steve isn’t shy to keep recommending bets during the tournament so ensure you have a substantial betting bank in place should you decide to follow. Twitter @ SteveThePunter
Dave’s musing’s can be found on both Sky Sports and the Betfair blog and is a well-respected judge from the UK. Tindall has been tipping on golf since the late-90’s when the Sporting Life newspaper first went digital. He was their main golf tipster for 10 years before later becoming golf editor at SkySports.com. Twitter @DaveTindallgolf
Without doubt one of the leading judges from the US is Rob Bolton who is the Fantasy Insider on the official PGA Tour website. One of the most read pieces amongst golf fans, Bolton writes a weekly Power Rankings column. Although he doesn’t give out recommended bets, the rankings are a clear indication of his favoured golfers for that week’s PGA event. Twitter @RobBoltonGolf
Steve Palmer – NEW ADDITION
Steve Palmer writes weekly betting previews on the Racing Post, a British daily horse racing and sports betting newspaper. Covering both Tours, Palmer is well regarded as a leading judge and gives out recommended bets every Wednesday. His previews can also be found online at racingpost.com/sport and Palmer gives regular updates throughout the weekend advising in-play bets. Not on Twitter.
