If your selected player does not take part in the tournament, bets will be made void (including Ante Post events). Once the player has tee’d off, bets will stand.
In tournaments that are affected by bad weather and/or have a reduction in the scheduled number of rounds, bets will be settled on the official result regardless of the number of rounds played. Bets placed after the last completed round will be void.
Any Golf events that do not take place within the same calendar year as quoted within the market, e.g. 'US Open 2020 Outright' will be made void.
All golf tournaments offered are available with 'Other Player on Request'.
The tournament winner will be the player that receives the trophy, provided an official result is confirmed by the governing body. The result of any playoff to determine the winner will count. Dead Heat Rules may apply in events where there could be more than one winner e.g. Open Qualification.
Outright Winner, Top 5/10/20/30/40, Groups/Nationalities and Other Outrights
Dead Heat Rules apply - please note that ties play a large part in the settlement of golf markets.
Dead heats are a common occurrence as several players can finish tied for places. Depending on the number of players tied and the number of places offered, this can affect settlement in a variety of ways.
An example of this could be as follows:
If a bet was struck on Player E to win the tournament Each Way (at a 1/4 the odds, 3 places) settlement would be determined as follows:
As 3 players were tied for the remaining place left in the market (3rd Place) - 1st and 2nd finished clear of the field - the stake is divided by the following:
Number of places remaining divided by the number of participants involved in the dead heat
In the above example, Player E backers would have their stake reduced to 1/3rd of their original stake (1 place remaining and 3 involved in the dead heat). The price taken remains unaffected, it is only the stake that is subject to a reduction.
The principles would then be the same if the bet had been struck and 4 places were offered, i.e. 2 places remaining, 3 participants in the dead heat = reduced to 2/3rds of original stake.
Dead Heat settlement also applies in Top 5/10/20/30/40 etc. markets –
Example A) in Top 20 betting, if a player ties for 20th with 5 other players, i.e. 6 players all tied 20th, a 1/6th reduction to winnings would apply;
Example B) if 2 players tied for 10th in Top 10 betting then a ½ reduction would occur.
Play Offs count for settlement purposes.
18 Hole Betting (2 ball)
If all players do not start, then pairings or groups will be void.
If a player withdraws or is disqualified during the round, the other player is deemed the winner. If both players withdraw or are disqualified during the round, bets will be made void.
In 2 ball betting a price will be offered for the tie (unless Tie No Bet)
In modified Stableford events the bets will be settled on the points scored and not the strokes taken.
If pairings change, then bets stand on the respective player scores.
Players must complete 1 hole for bets to stand, otherwise bets will be void.
This market will be settled on the finishing position of the player, regardless of tied-for places. For example, if 4 Players were to tie for 10th position, each player would be considered to have finished in 10th place.
