  • BookMaker.eu Let’s put all the politics aside and focus on golf for a few days. That’s what the European Tour is looking to accomplish this week with the second playing of the Saudi International. And this event is proof that money talks with a number of high-profile players taking an appearance fee to peg it up at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club. Making his second start since knee surgery, World No. 1 Brooks Koepka headlines the field, but defending champion and OWGR No. 5 Dustin Johnson opened as th...

  • BookMaker.eu The first of eight Rolex Series events gets the three-week desert swing underway when the European Tour heads to the UAE for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. An upgrade in status and prize money means an upgraded field with some of the best golfers in the world congregating at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club. This event was added as one of the elite on the Euro circuit schedule last year with a purse that more than doubled. Shane Lowry is back to defend his title and two-time winner Tommy Fleetwood is s... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship is the fifth tournament on the European Tour, but in many respects it’s the first of the new season. The tournament was elevated to one of the Tour’s eight pinnacle Rolex Series events with an increased purse attracting some of the biggest names in the sport. It also has three times as many Race to Dubai points at stake than last week’s South African Open. Major champion Brooks Koepka makes his season debut after a medical procedure put him on the shelf for a few ... 

  • BookMaker.eu South Africa will host the first European Tour event of the decade with the South African Open hosted by the City of Johannesburg getting underway this week at the Randpark Golf Club.

  • BookMaker.eu Following a brief Holiday break, the European Tour returns to action this week at the South African Open hosted by the city of Johannesburg.

  • BookMaker.eu With the Holiday break upcoming and a week removed from the Presidents Cup, the field is weakened for the year-ending Australian PGA Championship, contested at the picturesque RACV Royal Pines Resort in Queensland. There is no shortage of local golfers with Aussies dominating the field and the winner’s bracket at this event in the past. Natives have won 18 of the last 19 tournaments and 81 total since the first edition of this competition way back in 1905. Two-time defending champion Cameron Smi... 

  • BookMaker.eu The final European Tour event of the calendar year takes place this week at the Australian PGA Championship. The Aussie-dominated field heads down under, or in some cases stays down under, to compete for the Kirkwood Cup at the RACV Royal Pines Resort in Queensland. The event has been owned by the natives with the home country boasting 81 victories since the first edition of the Open in 1905. American Harold Varner III ended a streak of 16 straight Aussie wins with a victory in 2016, only to hav... 

  • BookMaker.eu The fifth edition of the European Tour’s ArfAsia Bank Mauritius Open heads to the south side of the island for this week’s playing at the Heritage Golf Club in Domaine de Bel Ombre. The event has rotated venues with the Four Seasons in Anahita since its 2015 maiden and returns to a spot where South African players have flourished in this tournament. George Coetzee won the inaugural event and Dylan Frittelli captured hardware in 2017. Coetzee is one of the favorites at online sportsbooks while Fr... 

  • BookMaker.eu From the wildlife park of Leopard Creek last week to the idyllic island of Mauritius this week, the European Tour covers all the bases.

  • BookMaker.eu Less than a week after Jon Rahm’s thrilling victory at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, the European Tour is ready to tee off the start of a new season. That takes place this week at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, contested at the picturesque Leopard Creek Country Club in Malelane, South Africa. And as the name suggests a hazard on the layout is the wildlife that makes the area home. With a number of high-profile players packing the sticks for the Holidays, the field isn’t as stro... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is no offseason on the European Tour. Just a few days after the dramatic conclusion of the DP World Tour Championship and the 2018-19 season it’s back to work.

  • BookMaker.eu The final stop on the European Tour is the DP World Tour Championship with the top 50 golfers in the Race to Dubai standings competing for the hefty prize and Race to Dubai crown at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai. Bernd Wiesberger tops the standings and can win the prize as the circuit’s top golfer with a top-2 finish regardless of what his nearest competitors do. Anything less leaves the door open for Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Shane Lowry or Matthew Fitzpatrick. That will create a lot of tense moments in the tournament matchups. Rory McIlroy has won the event twice in the past seven years and opened as the betting favorite. He’s also chasing down the World’s No. 1 ranking giving him plenty of motivation this week. Visit BookMaker.eu for a complete list of matchup betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu It comes down to this on the European Tour. The final event of the season with the top-50 golfers in the Race to Dubai will battle for the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai. There is also the cash, and prestige that come with winning the Race to Dubai. Bernd Wiesberger sits atop the standings heading into the week, but as many as five players can overtake him as the Euro Tour’s best player. Looking for his third win at this event in the last eight years, Rory McIlroy o... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Montgomerie Maxx Royal Golf Club in Antalya hosts the Turkish Airlines Open this week in the first of the final three Rolex Series events to close out the European Tour season.

Portugal has become a popular destination for British golfers due to the nice weather conditions and Englishman Matt Wallace is the betting favor... 

  • BookMaker.eu The venue for this week’s stop on the European Tour is a familiar one. Le Golf National hosted the most recent Ryder Cup and the pristine layout is set to do the same for the Amundi Open de France this week.

Still, there are plenty of quality golfers that will make for numerous betting opportunities on head-to-head tournament matchups. The odds board at offshore spo... 

  • BookMaker.eu Even European Tour events get affected by a change in the schedule. A move from the summer to early fall has played with the field for the Amundi Open de France, which will be without the typical star power associated with the circuit. Even with some of the big names absent and a modest purse, there will be fantastic golf played on a pristine course. Le Golf National, better known for its Ryder Cup hosting, will welcome a full field this week. And with no clear cut favorite, there is plenty of v...

  • BookMaker.eu For most Spaniards on the European Tour, playing in their national open is an honor and the Mutuactivos Open de Espana has attracted many of the country’s top players. Defending champion Jon Rahm is among them, and he’s the betting favorite at offshore sportsbooks. Rahm is joined in the strong field by fellow countrymen Sergio Garcia and Rafa Cabrera Bello, with each ranked among the world’s top-40.
