Guide to Betting on Golf Majors 2013

Online sportsbooks have already opened up market on next year's big golf tournaments

The new year is fast approaching, and for golf fans and punters from around the world that means there will soon be another calendar full of gold majors to keep us all occupied for another year.

2013 Golf Majors

The major championships in gold in 2013 begin with their traditional first stop in Augusta, Georgia. The world's top professionals will battle it out for the prestigious US Masters green jacket and first bragging rights for year over a four-day event from April 11-14 at the Augusta National Golf Club

Next in line is the US Open, which takes place June 13-16 at the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Then comes the trip across the pond on July 18-21 for the British Open at Muirfield, East Lothian in Scotland. And finally it all wraps up with the US PGA Championship on August 8-11 at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.

Top Contenders

With more than four months until the first major of the year, there is still plenty of time for betting enthusiasts to decide on their US Masters top 2013. All the usual suspects can be found in the early betting odds, but it might be worth considering that an underdog quite often breaks through.

Tiger Woods will be back for what will hopefully be a full, uninterrupted year of gold. His main rivals in the running for the Masters appear to be the likes of Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald, and Lee Westwood. A total of 25 names can be found in William Hill's US Masters 2013 betting odds, with more set to be added later when all participants are known.

Where to Bet

William Hill is one of the obvious choices for golf betting, offering odds on all the major tournaments in 2013. Visitors to the online betting site can already view odds for the US Masters and Open Championship, as well as major specials for Tiger Woods and season specials for all the top-ranking players.

Betfair is another strong option, with odds on the Masters and Open, as well as season specials that challenge punters to choose who they think will end the year as the PGA Tour's number one ranked player. They too have odds on a range of other tournaments, including the Race to Dubai and the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament.

Visitors to Betfair's site will notice that it has improved of late, after adding new features including improved In-Play functionality, Fixed Odds Singles and an updated look and feel. This makes betting a lot more fun than usual, and that include sports betting on golf majors and tournaments in 2013.
