Following Brooks Koepkas’s triumph at the PGA Championship last weekend, the golfing calendar rolls on again this weekend with action taking place on the PGA Tour and DP World Tour. Some of the biggest names in golf, including Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth, are teeing it up this week in Texas for the Charles Schwab Challenge while DP World Tour players are competing in the KLM Open in the Netherlands.
With both tournaments happening alongside one and other, here are some tips and predictions to feast on for the weekend.
Golf Betting Tips Today
Jorge Campillo to win the KLM Open
After one round of the KLM Open in the Netherlands, Jorge Campillo has a healthy three-shot lead at the top of the leaderboard. The Spaniard, who is ranked just outside the top 100 in golf’s official world rankings, played beautifully on day one and posted a score of -9. He is also a recent winner on the tour after winning the Magical Kenya Open in March.
Viktor Hovland to win his three ball
The Norweigan had an excellent time at the PGA Championship last week and pushed Brooks Koepka all the way until the final couple of holes. On day one of the Charles Schwab Challenge, he is playing alongside Cam Davis and Kurt Kitayama, both of whom aren’t as naturally gifted as the world number six so he should have enough to post the lowest score in the group.
Scottie Scheffler to win the tournament
Scottie Scheffler had yet another top ten finish last week at the PGA Championship and if it wasn’t for a poor third round, he would have more than likely won the event. Scheffler hasn’t finished lower than 12th in any tournament he has entered since October and he will be right up there again this weekend. With no Rahm or McIlroy in the field, he is the standout star and at 6/1 he is great value.

Our Golf Predictions – What We Cover
Our coverage of golf includes various events across different tours. With the launch of LIV Golf last year, we are providing more free golf tips and predictions than ever before.
Like many individual sports, there are different levels of tournaments in golf with all of them offering different prizes and ranking points. Here are the events that we cover:
Golf has four major championships which occur in consecutive months from April – July. The first major on the calendar is the Masters in April, followed by the PGA Championship in May, the US Open in June and the British Open in July. Expect plenty of tips and predictions ahead of, and during, each of these prestigious events.
PGA Tour events
The PGA Tour is the biggest golf tour on the planet and historically the most prestigious. There is typically at least one PGA Tour event every week from September – August although only certain events will attract the best players. These events are known as “designated” events and they are exclusively for the best-performing golfers on the tour and boast the largest prize money.
DP World Tour events
The DP World Tour is the second-biggest golf tour on the planet and typically features the best European golfers in the world. The best players on the DP World Tour events are also allowed to compete on the PGA Tour which ensures the best Europeans aren’t constantly lost to the bright lights of the USA. We will cover the most prestigious events on the DP World Tour, otherwise known as their Rolex Series events.
LIV Golf events
LIV Golf is a whole new entity that launched in 2021. Its first full season came in 2022 and the Saudi-backed tour offers players the opportunity to play in smaller fields, over fewer days for more money. Players who have defected to this tour have been suspended from the PGA Tour but we will still be offering tips on each of its 12 events this season.
The Ryder Cup takes place every two years and sees the best European golfers take on the best American golfers over three days of match-play action. It is arguably the best spectacle in golf and we will be offering predictions and tips in the build-up to the 2023 edition in Rome in September.
Golf doesn’t have as many betting markets as sports such as Tennis and Football but even the main outright markets offer fantastic value due to the sheer number of players in a typical tournament. Here are some of the markets that you can expect to see us predict:
This is the market where you back the winner of an entire tournament. The best value is usually found before a tournament starts although we will also be offering in-play tips on this market when available.
This market is where you back a player to finish a certain round on top of the leaderboard. Most tournaments have four rounds of action so there will be plenty of tips relating to this market.
Make the cut
After two rounds of golf, the bottom half of the field is “cut” and sent home. Some bookmakers offer odds on who is going to make the cut, especially on day two of an event. If we believe there is value, we will offer tips on this market.
Most of the time, three players will play alongside each other at a golf tournament. While these players won’t be directly playing against each other, some bookmakers offer odds on who will do the best out of each 3-ball. It can be a fun market to bet on, particularly if you enjoy following a certain group when watching golf.
