Aside from the following special betting rules, the common betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the common rules nevertheless.
1.) Ante Post Bets Ante Post bets will be void for players who have either not qualified or do not take part in a tournament for any other reason.
2.) Abandoned Events In the event of a tournament being shortened or otherwise affected due to weather conditions, all bets other than those placed after the last completed round will stand provided at least 36 holes have been played and a trophy has been awarded. Those placed after the last completed round will be void. This does not apply when a tournament is played over more than one course and in this instance all players must have played the same rotation, otherwise all bets will be void.
3.) Bet Settlement All winning bets will be settled at the prices shown at our websites at the time the bet was accepted. This excludes any obvious palpable errors. Bets will be settled at the place terms on offer when the bet was placed.
4.) Hole Winner Markets Winning bets must predict which of the quoted players will win the hole. In 3-way player markets, dead heat rules apply. In 2-way player markets, the tie will also be offered, and this will win if they both score the same score on the hole. If a player withdraws on a hole, the other player(s) will be deemed the winner regardless of their score on the hole but provided they complete the hole.
5.) Make/Miss the cut Bets will be void for any player who does not start the tournament. If a player withdraws at any stage after starting the tournament, bets will be settled as losers.
6.) Match play Winning bets must predict the winner of a match play match. In team events, final day singles will be settled on the official result. In a match play tournament, the winner will be the player progressing to the next round or becoming the tournament winner.
7.) Match play Winning Margin Winning bets must predict the winning margin in the relevant match play event. The official result counts for settlement purposes.
8.) Mythical 2/3 Balls The winner will be the player who shoots the lowest score in the specified round. If all players do not start the round, bets will be voided. If a player withdraws or is disqualified during the specified round, the other player will be deemed the winner. If all players withdraw or are disqualified during the specified round then bets will be voided.
9.) Player Hole Scores Winning bets must predict the number of shots it takes for a player to complete a specified hole. If a player fails to complete a hole for whatever reason, bets will stand provided that the hole is completed on a subsequent day. If there is no opportunity to complete the hole, all bets will be void. If a player withdraws whilst playing the specified hole, all bets will be void.
10.) Postponed/Rearranged Events In the event of a tournament being postponed, rearranged or moved to a different course, all bets will stand.
11.) Round Leader Markets Bets will be settled after the specific round has been completed and according to the each-way terms offered when they were placed. Dead heat rules apply.
12.) Tournament Prices Winning bets must predict the winner of the tournament. If a playoff is required to determine the tournament winner, the winner of the playoff will be deemed the tournament winner. In the event of a shared win, the operator reserves the right to settle as they see fit based on all available evidence. Dead heat rules apply for all placings in a tournament. For example, if the each-way terms are for four places and three players tie for third, they will be deemed to have dead-heated for third, four and fifth places, with 1/3 of the stake lost and 2/3 of the stake settled at full place odds for an each-way bet on those players.
13.) Tournament Group Betting Winning bets must select the player who achieves the highest tournament placing from a selected group. In the event of any player in the group not teeing off, deductions will be made to bets on the other players in the group in line with Rule 4. Players missing the cut will be eliminated unless all of the players in the group miss the cut. If this occurs the lowest score at that stage will determine the winner. Dead heat rules apply if two or more players are tied at the end of the tournament, unless the result is determined by a playoff in which case the playoff winner is considered the group winner. If only one player in a group starts, all bets will be void.
14.) Tournament Match Bets Winning bets must select the player with the lowest score at the end of the tournament, provided that 36 holes have been played in a 72-hole tournament. If both players finish on the same score, 'Tie' is the winner, regardless of whether the two players involved subsequently contest a playoff. Both players in a match bet must tee off for bets to stand. In a tournament played on a combination of courses, all bets will be void if the players do not complete the same itinerary of courses. If one player misses the cut, the other player will be deemed to be the winner. Where both miss the cut, the player with the lowest score after the cut has been made is deemed the winner. If one player is disqualified or withdraws before the cut is made or after both players have made the cut, the other player will be deemed the winner (even if the other player does not make the cut). If a player is disqualified or withdraws in the rounds after the cut, when his/her opponent has already missed the cut, the disqualified player will be deemed the winner. If both players withdraw or are disqualified before the cut, all bets are void. The same applies if this happens to them both after they have made the cut.
15.) To be selected to play in a team/tournament (e.g. The Ryder Cup) Winning bets must predict whether a player will be selected to play in a specific team or tournament. Players must be announced as part of the playing team at the opening ceremony for bets to count.
16.) To hit the fairway This market is settled on the finishing position of the golf ball after the tee shot. Official sources will be used for settlement. If no official result can be determined via these sources or TV pictures, bets will be void.
17.) To finish last Winning bets will predict who will finish last in the tournament. Any bets placed on players who withdraw before 72 holes are completed will be settled as losing bets. If there is a tie for last place, dead heat rules will apply.
18.) Top 5/10/20 Bets will be void on any player that does not start a tournament. If a player starts and then withdraws for any reason, bets will be losers.
19.) Top Nationality Markets Only the players listed within these markets count. Bets on non-runners will be void; a rule 4 deduction may be applied on bets placed prior to any quoted players within the market withdrawing.
20.) Yearly Order of Merit/Official Money List Winner Winning bets must predict the winner of the Order of Merit/Official Money List at the end of the season. Settlement is determined following the last counting tournament and will not be affected by any subsequent enquiries or alterations.
21.) 18-Hole/36-Hole Match Bets Winning bets must predict the player with the lowest score over 18/36 holes. If both players finish on the same score, 'Tie' will be the winner, regardless of whether the two players involved subsequently contest a playoff. Both players in a match bet must tee-off for bets to stand.
22.) 2-Ball/3-Ball Betting Winning bets must select the player with the lowest score over the specified number of holes. In the event of any player not teeing off, all bets will be void. Once a player has teed off, all bets will stand regardless of whether they subsequently withdraw or are disqualified from the tournament. If a price is offered for the 'Tie' in 2-ball betting, a tied score will result in 'Tie' being declared the winner. If a price is not offered for the 'Tie', all bets will be void. Bets will normally be offered based on player pairings or groups in the tournament. In the event of a 2 or 3 ball being rearranged, bets will be settled on the original pairings. Dead Heat rules apply to all 3-ball betting.
