Golf Rules

Golf Pre-match

Outright Betting/Top Nationality Etc
Ante-Post bets on any player who fails to qualify for the main tournament’s final field will be classed as losers. Bets on a player who makes the final field and withdraws without teeing off will be voided.

All outright bets are settled on the player awarded the trophy. The result of playoffs is taken into account. Dead-heat rules will apply to the Place part of Each-way bets.

Official tour site results at the time of trophy presentation are used for settlement purposes (subsequent disqualification after this time does not count).

A player is deemed to have played once they have teed off. In the event of a player withdrawing after having teed off then stakes will be lost on outright, group, match or 18 hole betting.

Where a tournament is reduced from the scheduled number of holes for any reason (e.g. adverse weather conditions) outright bets placed prior to the final completed round will be settled on the player awarded the trophy if 36 holes of the tournament have been completed. If less than 36 holes have been completed or outright bets were placed after the final completed round then bets will be void.

Skins Tournaments will be subject to dead-heat rules in the event of players winning equal amounts of prize money at the end of the specified competition. If additional holes are played to declare a single winner then this will be used for settlement purposes.

Group Betting
The winner will be the player achieving the highest placing at the end of the tournament. Any player missing the cut will be considered a loser. If all players miss the cut then the lowest score after the cut has been made will determine settlement. Non-runner no-bet deductions in line with Deductions will apply. Dead-heat rules apply except where the winner is determined by a playoff.

If a tournament is affected by adverse weather bets will be settled providing that there is a deemed tournament winner and a minimum of 36 holes are completed. The winner will be the player in the lead at the end of the last completed round.

Tournament Top 5/Top 10 Finish
Dead-heat rules apply. E.g. If two players finish in 5th position, bets on those two players will be halved. If three players finish in 5th position, bets on those three players will be divided by 3. An exception to this is when players tie on position, but both fall within the amount of places offered, such as two players tying for 2nd where Top5 was offered. All bets would be full payout in that case.

Finishing Position of a Named Player
In the event of a tie for a finishing position the tied position will count. For example, a tie with 5 other players for 8th place will count as a finishing position of 8th.

54, 72 and 90 Hole Match Betting
If a tournament is affected by adverse weather then bets will be settled providing that there is a deemed tournament winner and a minimum of 36 holes are completed. The winner will be the player in the lead at the end of the last completed round.

Official tour site results at the time of trophy presentation are used for settlement purposes (subsequent disqualification after this time does not count).

If one player misses the cut then the other player is deemed the winner. If both players miss the cut then the lowest score after the cut has been made will determine settlement.

If a player is disqualified or withdraws after starting, either prior to the completion of two rounds or after both players have made the cut, then the other player is deemed the winner.

If a player is disqualified during either the 3rd or 4th rounds, when the other player in the match bet has already missed the cut, then the disqualified player is deemed the winner.

A price will be offered for the tie and in the event of a tie bets on either player to win will be lost.
