Hawaii Open Betting

Make your experience of the 2009 Sony Open in Hawaii more enjoyable by joining the thousands of spectators and golf enthusiasts who participate in golf betting.

Hawaii Open Betting Guidelines

There are several factors you should consider before picking your favourite players for the 2009 Hawaii Open.

First, check previous Hawaii Open winners and the performance of the top golfers in other PGA Tournaments. Identifying players who have consistently done well at the Sony Open, know the course at Waialae and are continuing to show good performance in other tournaments gives you the best start. Also check the latest Hawaii Open odds for 2009 favourites.

Some factors that could influence your Hawaii Open betting are the weather and players’ tee times. Golfers accustomed to playing in windy conditions may have an advantage. Also, golfers set to putt early in the day will be less affected by marks left on the greens.

Golf Betting Options

With players like Tiger Woods having brought golf into the limelight internationally, golf betting has become hugely popular. Punters have lots of choices – from betting on the first nine or the last nine, to betting on places, individual rounds, and even groups of players.

Some options for Hawaii Open betting include

  • betting to win: if your player wins, the odds on the player determine your earnings. If the odds are 5/1 and the player wins, you get £5 for every £1 bet, plus your original stake back.
  • place betting: you can bet on place finishes and the odds are the same whether the golfer finishes 2nd or 5th. If you place £1 on a player to finish at 20/1 and the player is successful, you will win a proportion of the odds, plus your original stake back. If the proportion is ¼, your place odds are ¼ x 20/1 = 5/1. This means that you will win £5 for every £1 you bet.
  • betting each way: a combination of betting to win and place betting. You pay the same stake for each part of the bet. If you pay £1 each way for a player winning at 5/1, you would get £5 for the win plus £2.50 for the place. If the player does not win but finishes in a place, you win only the place bet.
  • match bet: you bet on whether one player will beat or tie with another over a stroke-play tournament.
  • group bet: you bet on one of a group of golfers identified by a bookmaker winning.
  • two-ball bet: you bet on whether one player will outscore another over one round.
  • three-ball bet: you bet on whether one player will outscore another two players over one round.
  • combination betting: a combination of more than one of the above bets, but you must win all the bets to win. The payout is equal to all the individual odds multiplied.
