Golf betting is growing in popularity especially on the four men’s major golf championships as golf is one of the most played games in the world, originating back in 15th century Scotland. In the world of golf the Major Championships hold market share when it comes to golf odds on offer and are made up of four highly prestigious pro-golfing tournaments: US Masters Tournament, US Open, British Open Championships and the PGA Championship.
