Betting Rules

Golf

Outright betting/top nationality etc
Non-Runner - no bet.

All outright bets are settled on the player awarded the trophy. The result of play-offs is taken into account. Dead-Heat rules will apply to the place part of Each-Way bets.

A player is deemed to have played once he/she has 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 (i.e. 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. Where a tournament which is scheduled for 72 holes and play is abandoned for any reason, all selections on the outcome of the tournament are void, unless an official result is declared by the relevant recognised governing body within 48 hours.

Ante-Post bets on any player who takes part in a qualifying tournament but then fails to qualify for the main tournament will be classed as losers.

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.

Outright betting including 'Field'
Non-Runner - no bet apart from 'The Field'. The price for 'The Field' includes all players not quoted in this market. Bets are accepted win only. Above Outright betting rules apply.

Betting without a nominated player(s)
Dead-Heat rules apply to win bets unless the excluded player(s) does not win the tournament. Dead-Heat rules also apply to the place part of Each-Way bets.

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 will apply. Dead-Heat rules apply except where the winner is determined by a play-off.

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 4/Top 5/Top 6/Top 10 finish
Dead-Heat rules apply.
the case of place bets where there is a tie after completion of the predetermined number of holes (subject to rule 32 (1) and 32 (2) herein), the revised payout payable shall be calculated by the following method:

  1.  divide the face value of the sports bet (the original payout and the original stake) by the number of competitors involved in the tie, draw or dead-heat, then
  2. multiply the figure obtained in (i) by the number of official placings to be filled by the competitors involved in the tie, draw or dead-heat.

 

  1. Example 1: Tiger Woods wins a tournament, Ernie Els comes 2nd and Adam Scott, Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh and Michael Campbell finish in a tie for 3rd place. If you have selected Scott to finish in the placings at 5/1 and you wagered 1000/200, the original payout of 1000 would be divided by 4 leaving the face value of the bet at 250/50. The official placings filled by the competitors who have tied is 2 (assuming you are paying the top 4 places), viz: 3rd and 4th place, so the bet would become 500/100.
  2. Example 2: Woods wins a tournament, Els and Scott tie for 2nd, Goosen, Singh, Campbell and Garcia tie for 4th.Your wager is 2000/500 on Garcia to finish in the top 4.Your bet would be 500/125.


  3. 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.

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.

All other markets where a match finishes before completion of 18 holes (e.g. by agreement), such as match score, will be settled as if the remaining uncompleted holes are ties.
