Official Tour Sites
coverage of not just PGA Tour, but also the Web.com and Champions
Tours, plus the WGC events. In terms of official Tour sites, this is clearly the market
leader with its real-time scoring and stats offerings putting the
other Tour sites to shame. In terms of real-time scoring, the graphical
interface of TourCast (launched
in March 2003) was a huge step forward while the ability to see shot-by-shot
data on the leaderboard remains the only one of its kind. In terms of
stats, there is a much larger category of stats provided than on other
Tour sites. Now includes the Latinoamerica and Canadian Tours as they
have moved under the PGA Tour umbrella.
coverage of European Tour events, naturally, with excellent player
profiles detailing every tournament they have played on the European
Tour. In this respect, it is a better than the PGA Tour site. It also
provides real-time scoring on the European Tour, Challenge Tour and
European Seniors Tour and the live scoring blog feed is a
welcome addition, but it is still a long way short of the live scoring
information available on the PGA Tour site. It is also a pity that the Tour stats information is so limited in comparison to the PGA
Impressive looking site
that offers real-time scoring and some
statistical coverage for each player as well. The leaderboard has the
novel facility for the user to select up to 10 players and have the
leaderboard just display those players, while the stats information is
fairly standard. A novel feature is contained on the players profile
pages via the 'Performance Chart ...' link. This provides a full stats
and results summary for that player for any given year since 2004.
website for the Australasian Tour. It used to be extremely slow to load
and very light on content, but it is much faster now. One issue is that
there used to be player profiles and some coverage of player
statistics, but these have now been removed so the content is rather light. The real-time scoring feature is generally good though,
although basic compared to the Tour sites outlined above.
A very good site for one of
the lesser Tours. There is real-time scoring with some customisable
options and past results are searchable back to the 1990/91 season which
is impressive. The player profile pages are a good feature,
though the player stats do not extend beyond basic scoring
info and there are no rankings of Tour stats categories available on this site
other than basic scoring data.
When the players
themselves took over this Tour, the development of a Tour site was not a
priority, but it did receive a significant upgrade during the 2006
season and is now a full working resource for this Tour with real-time
scoring, some event information, player profile pages and a small
selection of Tour stats categories. It is just a pity that information
for the pre-2004 era is not available on this site. The other gripe is
that player stats are only available for those players that make the cut
graphics, but high on quality. Fully searchable index of results and player
statistics covering more than a decade and real-time scoring as well. This was
the first Tour to offer a hole-by-hole leaderboard, but there have been
no further refinements.
Excellent coverage of statistics - much better than the European Tour - and the
player profile pages are also very complete on statistical information,
including the player's blood type!
Completely overhauled in 2012 and while the
leaderboard has a more slick feel to it, there is no longer the ability
to select individual players for a customised leaderboard. There
remains an impressive player profile section and there is once again the
ability to retrieve historical results back to 2000. However, site lists
only the top-20 players each in Tour stats categories so that is of
Very informative site as
would be expected from a dedicated golf TV channel. Plenty of analysis,
text-based and video, of the PGA Tour in particular, though coverage of
events outside the U.S. is rather secondary for a dedicated golf TV
channel. The site's leaderboards have improved in recent years, but
remain buggy, particularly with respect to adding 'favourite players'
A very good site as
a resource for golf results around the globe with results for each of
the top-level Tours available since 1999. This information had been
unavailable for some time after the site revamp in
2005, but it is now back again. In terms of statistics, it is
home to the Sagarin golf ratings,
which are an excellent reference point for any golf punter.
Australian site that provides
excellent coverage of events on the Australasian Tour and other professional
tournaments held in Australia. Also provides good coverage with daily
updates on scores for most Tours each week and is generally a very
informative site about golf.
Where you'll find
picks posted. Lots of high quality 'cappers of US sports and a number of golf 'cappers
from all over the world as well. The biggest and the best of all the sports forums! Has a specific golf forum and

Tour-Tips! This site has a primary focus on golf
with an emphasis upon backing players at big odds, though there
is a Football Betting Index site as well. The live blog and the
newsletter are widely read and, together with the betting tools and
bookmaker reviews, this is a highly recommended site.
Good previews of each
PGA and European Tour event from a variety of writers, though Ben Coley
and Dave John are the main golf pundits. Focus is on outright plays with UK bookmakers
and their picks do show a profit
each season, which is an impressive feat as the best prices are usually
gone by the time that the previews are written.
A long-established golf betting
site, but has since discontinued providing tips. Its unique feature is a desktop
program that can be downloaded which enables the database to be searched
without an internet connection.
A site with dedicated tipsters for the PGA and
European Tours and both showing consistent profits year-on-year. In
terms of stats, there are weekly stats relating to course history and,
in particular, there is a unique Golf Betting System player ranking
which the user can customise. This enables to user to change the
weightings within the GBS rankings and display the top-25 ranked players
according to the new weightings.
