PGA Tour Betting Guide
The PGA Tour is the biggest tour in golf right now. Most of the biggest names in the world play on the PGA Tour and the bigger tournaments are PGA Tour tournaments. In 2007 the PGA Tour introduced the FedEx Cup which works very similar to the Race to Dubai on the European Tour.
There are 37 regular season tournaments contributing to the FedEx Cup points list. Players score points depending on their finishing position in those regular season events. The regular season begins with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii and ends in August at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. At the end of the Wyndham Championship the top 125 points scorers qualify for the 4 week playoff series.
The playoffs begin with The Barclays. After that event the top 100 on the points list move forward to the Deutsche Bank Championship the following week. Week 3 of the playoffs is the BMW Championship which contains the top 70 point scorers and then after the BMW, the top 30 point scorers going on to the season ending Tour Championship and the person with the most points after that event is named the FedEx Cup winner.
There is plenty of betting options available on the PGA Tour. The Tour runs two lists, the money list and the FedEx Cup points list and betting is available on both lists throughout the season. Season long bets don’t appeal to all punters but the unique scoring methods in the FedEx Cup means it can benefit the outsiders so it’s often a market worth looking into.
