Top Golf Betting Apps
Odds and prices are incredibly important in all sports when it comes to wagering, but especially so in golf betting. Given that most of the betting is focused around the outright markets, getting the best prices will help you become a better bettor long term in terms of potential to be profitable. For example, if you like Dustin Johnson to win the PGA Championship at +1100 at one legal sportsbook, but he is available at +1400 at another you want to be sure to take the better odds. This way if he wins, you will cash a 14/1 ticket instead of a 11/1 ticket.
With that in mind, here are two of our favorite sportsbooks for PGA wagering.
