  • BookMaker.eu Golf’s major championships are like the Super Bowl for sports bettors. And with The Open Championship the final major of the season, this is the last chance to make some additional coin on a little side action. The prop bets are plentiful for the 148th Open and BookMaker.eu has everything you need. Tiger Woods is the most polarizing figure in sports and he’ll peg it up this week after a month-long hiatus. Woods could play just the four majors every year and he’d still draw attention from everyon... 

  • BookMaker.eu Serving as an alternate event to The Open, the The Barbasol Championship will attract a field of younger players and savvy veterans fighting for status on the PGA Tour. Now in its fifth season playing alongside one of the Tour’s majors, the field will lack star power, but it certainly won’t be at a loss for drama if last year’s edition is any indication. Troy Merritt broke free from the pack in the final round to win by a stroke over three golfers. Merritt is back to defend his title at the Keen... 

  • BookMaker.eu You want matchups, the PGA Tour has matchups. With the world’s greatest golfers assembled in Northern Ireland this week for the 148th Open Championship, there is a bevy of matchup choices as the field goes for the fourth major title of the year and possession of the Claret Jug. Tiger Woods pegs it up for the first time since the U.S. Open and has plus odds in a number of his matchups. There is money to be made should the Big Cat rise to the occasion, like he tends to do in majors. This is a home... 

  • BookMaker.eu The final major of the PGA Tour season is a dandy with the 148th playing of The Open Championship. We can also call it the British Open or just The Open, but it all means the same to the field of golfers assembling in Northern Ireland. Royal Portrush serves as host for the first time since 1951 and offers the field a typical links-style layout. All the big boys will be out battling for the Claret Jug with Rory McIlroy the betting favorite on the opening line at offshore sportsbooks. Major whiz B... 

  • BookMaker.eu With nearly all of the top players on the PGA Tour competing in The Open Championship, those who didn’t qualify for the fourth major will have a chance to pick up some scraps at the alternate Barbasol Championship, taking place this week at the Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Kentucky. There are no top-50 players competing, but there is a good mix of talented young players and experienced veterans looking to pick up valuable FedEx Cup points. Troy Merritt is back to defend his title, however, there is no clear-cut favorite in the watered down field. Russell Henley opened at the top of the odds list at online sportsbooks, because someone had to. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last PGA Tour stop before the final major of the season takes place this week in the Quad Cities area with the playing of the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. Not an ideal event to prepare for the Open Championship, most of the Tour’s big names are absent from the JDC. That doesn’t mean the play will be below par. The field is headlined by the last two Tour winners in Matthew Wolff and Nate Lashley, and will also feature a number of up-and-comers who are the future of... 

  • BookMaker.eu The swing through the Midwest comes to an end for the PGA Tour with this week’s playing of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois. Having the unenviable slot of being just ahead of the Open Championship, and thousands of miles away, the field is less than attractive for this year’s event. There may be a lack of big names but there’s no mistaking the talent level. A number of the Tour’s rising stars will get the chance to show off and as odds at online sportsbooks suggest, the field is wide o... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour’s swing through the Midwest continues this week with the inaugural playing of the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota. The Tour hasn’t had a regular stop in Minnesota since 1969 and players will be greeted by an upgraded course. Headlining the field is world No. 1 Brooks Koepka, who is also the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. Eleven of the top 30 golfers in the latest FedEx Cup standings make for some interesting matchups, and odds for those are available at Book... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour is hitting some overlooked spots with a trip this week to Minnesota for the inaugural 3M Open, which will be held at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine. Last week the Tour stopped in Michigan for the first time in a decade and it’s been a half-century since Minnesotans enjoyed a regular PGA Tour visit. The maiden 3M Open has attracted a strong field with world No. 1 Brooks Koepka the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. The field also includes 11 of the top 30 in the latest FedEx Cup ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Not bad for a first timer. Placed between the last two majors of the season, the Rocket Mortgage Classic has attracted a strong field for its maiden event as the PGA Tour returns to Michigan for the first time in 10 years. The field will convene this week at the Detroit Golf Club with Gary Woodland playing for the first time as a major champion. Fresh off his four-shot win last week, Chez Reavie looks to go back-to-back. World No. 2 Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite with a number of interes... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been a decade since the PGA Tour last stopped in Michigan. That drought ends this week with the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic taking place at the Detroit Golf Club. The past two winners on Tour are in attendance and both are at the top of the odds board at online sportsbooks. Gary Woodland plays his first event as a major champion and Chez Reavie is coming off his four-shot win at the Travelers Championship. We keep seeing Dustin Johnson as a favorite in events he plays, and there he is... 

  • BookMaker.eu Fresh off his near miss for a three-peat at the U.S. Open, Brooks Koepka heads a strong field and is one of a number of players making the trek across the country for this week’s PGA Tour Travelers Championship, taking place at TPC River Highlands just outside of Hartford, Connecticut. Bubba Watson returns as defending champion and has two of his three titles at this event in the last four years. Not many have tamed the layout in suburban Cromwell, but Watson certainly has. There are a number of... 

  • BookMaker.eu The third major of the season is in the books and the PGA Tour heads to the other coast this week for the annual playing of the Travelers Championship. Despite the cross country travel after a stressful U.S. Open, the event has attracted a strong field. Defending champ Bubba Watson looks to become the second four-time winner of this event and he finds himself nestled down the odds board at +2800. One week after falling short in his quest for a third straight U.S. Open title, Brooks Koepka makes ...

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour’s third major of the season gets underway Thursday with the 119th playing of the U.S. Open at the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links along the California Coast. The top players in the world will assemble to try and dethrone two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka, who looks to become just the second player to three-peat at the U.S. Open while searching for his fifth title in the last 10 major championship tournaments.

  • BookMaker.eu There is plenty on the line when the PGA Tour’s third major of the season takes over the California Coast this week for the 119th playing of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links. There is the major championship, for one, along with a hefty payday for the winner. And the field is stacked with 156 of the top players in the world set to peg it up. Two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka goes for his fifth win in the last seven majors, and he’s not even the betting favorite. That distinction belongs to 2016 winner Dustin Johnson, who’s currently at +704 at BookMaker.eu. Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods round out the top four favorites. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A number of the world’s top golfers will compete in this week’s RBC Canadian Open as a final tune-up before the PGA Tour’s third major.

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour gets one last tune up before the third major of the season, and it takes place north of the border at the RBC Canadian Open.

After a few invitational events, the Tour returns to a full field and will be played at a new course for the first time in four years. The tournament moves from Glen Abbey to the Hamilton Golf and Country Club... 

  • BookMaker.eu This week’s stop on the PGA Tour got a little more exciting with the announcement that Tiger Woods is going to compete in the Memorial Tournament. Woods didn’t play after winning The Masters and the layoff may have had something to do with his missed cut a month later at the PGA Championship. Woods climbed into the top-5 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time in five years and is one of seven top-10 golfers that will peg it up at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Take a look at the matchups and odds for the event that begins on Thursday. ...

  • BookMaker.eu With the buzz of the season’s second major behind them, PGA Tour members return to action in a more subdued environment this week at the invitation-only Charles Schwab Challenge, taking place at the famed Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Even with the absence of major winners Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka, the field is strong and presents a number of quality matchups. Defending champion Justin Rose is at the top of the odds board at BookMaker.eu and is featured in a number of head-to-... 

  • BookMaker.eu After watching Brooks Koepka successfully defend his title at the PGA Championship last week, the Tour takes a break from all the hoopla of a major tournament. That doesn’t mean the stakes aren’t as high for the 122 players scheduled to peg it up at the invitation-only Charles Schwab Challenge, which gets underway Thursday from Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Justin Rose returns to defend his title and is the betting favorite along with Jon Rahm, in a strong field of players with a n... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Championship moves up a few months on the calendar and the former fourth major of the season is now the second.
