Whether you’re looking for outright odds, Top 5/10/20 betting, round matchups, tournament matchups, player props or futures, FOX Bet is the place to be for online PGA wagering.

Golf betting is available all year long, with offerings on everything from lower-level events to the four majors and FedEx Cup playoffs.

There are dozens of different wagers you can make prior to the start of a round or tournament. They include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • an outright tournament winner
  • a Top 5/10/20 wager (whether or not a certain player will finish within each range)
  • a player to beat another player either straight up (moneyline) or against the spread (in either a round or the entire tournament)

Outright odds to win a tournament are typically presented in the format of +XXX. A negative number in golf is extremely rare, as it’s hard to be considered an outright favorite when playing against a field that often includes at least 150 golfers. Betting on a player with positive odds means you’ll make more than what you wagered on the event.

Betting the moneyline is straightforward. Either the player you bet will outscore their listed opponent in a round or tournament, or they won’t. If the selected player shoots a lower score than his opponent, the bet is a win. If they shoot a higher score, the bet is a loss. A tie would result in bets being returned.

A spread in a round or tournament matchup represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given player. To use an example, if you have Tiger Woods (-1.5) vs. Jordan Spieth (+1.5): a winning against-the-spread wager on Woods would require him to outperform Speith by 2 strokes or more. Spieth is the winning wager in this scenario if he either finishes with a better score for the round (or full 4 rounds), posts the same score as Woods or finishes 1 stroke worse than Woods.
