SUBSCRIPTION FEATURES

 
  • Fourteen different statistical tables published each Monday morning, including ratings, for events across 13 different Tours (link)

    • These tables are customisable - this allows the user to re-calibrate the various tables so that they display up 15 weeks (or 15 years for the course form tables) of data rather than standard 8 weeks / 5 years. The scoring averages and ranks are recalculated with each change in the sample period.

    • Each player has a one-page summary of performances (scoring, statistical and strokes gained) over the past six months and performances on that week's course and country/U.S. State since 1996.

    • Generate your own ratings - this feature allows the user to generate their own ratings for any event for any set of players.

     

  • In-running statistical analysis for each player according to 35 different statistical categories updated at the end of each round for every PGA and European Tour event (link)

    • These are updated after the conclusion of each round on the PGA Tour and hourly on the European Tour and provide highly detailed information on how each player is performing and so is useful for in-running and daily fantasy golf markets.

    • There is also detailed data on hole averages for both single- and multiple-course events, and a breakdown of scoring patterns in the morning and afternoon sessions in the first two rounds of each event.
       

  • Customisable statistical categories (up to 37 in total) for all 13 Tours covered on this site (link)

    • Not only do various golf Tours not make these stats categories available themselves, but the main golf Tours do not publish some of these stats categories. For example, the European Tour won't publish "par-4 scoring average" data, but they can be found at Tour-Tips.

    • When the golf Tours publish this data on their official web sites, it is available only on a season-only basis - this means that the data is of limited use in the first few months of the season - and only full Tour members are included in these stats categories. On Tour-Tips, the user can select '12 months', '6 months', '3 months' or 'calendar year' as the sample period and the stats categories includes all players who have competed a minimum number of rounds over that period.
       

  • An individual profile page for thousands of players across 13 different Tours (link)

    • Each player profile page provides: (i) their biographical information; (ii) their results and stats over the last three months; (ii) a detailed breakdown for the player according to each 'Keith Elliott Golf Form Symbol'; (iv) a full comparison of the player performances in different locations, months of the year and across differing tournament strengths; and (v) links to recent online articles about them.

     

  • A tournament profile page for events across 13 different Tours (link)

    • Each enhanced tournament profile page provides: (i) detailed course information, a list of the last 10 winners and winning scores, weather forecast data, and pre-set head-to-head database queries for each player in the field; (ii) a full listing of all players within the field that has a local connection (country or U.S. State) to the event location, either via their birthplace, residence or college; (iii) a full statistical breakdown of the last five years of the tournament (containing sections such as the 'previous current form and course form of the top-5' for each year, the 'top-5 in each statistical category' for each year, 'hole averages' for each year, and so on); and (iv) links to recent online articles about the event.

    •  

  • Twenty-eight pre-determined database queries for the Men's and Ladies' Tours, run on databases that contain results and stats for almost 10,000 events and over 4 million rounds of Tour golf since 1996 (link)

    • These involve not only queries on player's scores according to event, course or location, but also their individual event stats and there is also the option to display the database results via charts rather via tables of data.

    • There are also queries to compare two and three players in head-to-head formats and a query on how specified players have performed when in the same playing group, again with the option to display the results as charts.
       

Tour-Tips is an online statistical resource for the study of professional golf. On the 'data' site here, there are details of the customisable Excel formsheets that give a statistical preview of any Tour event and are received via email at the start of the week, and there are details of the data files that are available for purchase which provide a full statistical breakdown of all Tour events since 1996. Betfair historical odds for 'win markets' on a per-20-second basis for the PGA & European Tours are available as a free add-on for all subscribers to the data files on the 'data' site. On the main tour-tips.com site, there are resources available online to study past events and preview current events. Full details are given below.

Stats for every player in each Tour event are produced on Monday morning each so that there is plenty of time for people to research each Tour event before they start. Thereafter, betting tips will be posted on the site for each Tour event. In most cases, these will be on Tuesday or Wednesday each week once sufficient odds have been published, though previews and tips for PGA and European Tour events will typically be posted on Mondays or Tuesdays as there is usually little value left in these markets by Wednesday. For all the stats and betting tips each week, check the 'page updates' box on the right for the most recent updates.

Betting Previews

For PGA and European Tour (including co-sanctioned) events, there will be detailed previews provided. These previews will provide the background information to the event as well as betting tips. However, these previews will draw upon the past stagings of the event and on the course to identify key statistical angles to consider when looking to find a winner in these events.

Stats Analysis

For events on the 13 mains Tours, there will be a full statistical analysis of each player in that week's field. This involves summaries for the five different 'strokes gained' categories, current form, location form, long-term form, statistical form, two measures of course form and two measures of course compatibility, plus there is an overall index [Tour-Tips ratings] that brings this analysis together.

This stats analysis will be updated in stages during the week. Once the previous week's events are finished, the full range of stats tables will be published on Monday mornings for the coming week's events, while these tables will then be updated throughout the next few days with changes in the field.

But the stats analysis does not end there. At the end of each round on the PGA Tour and at one-hour intervals on the European Tour, there will be 35 in-running stats tables published that analyse the performance of the players in different categories. These are invaluable for daily betting and daily fantasy golf markets.

At Tour-Tips, you will also find profiles of each player on the 13 main Tours that will present a series of statistical analyses for that player, as well as 'psychological angles' (ref. Keith Elliott), profiles of each tournament on the 13 main Tours that provide an analyses of how the event has been won (or lost) in the last five years and you will also find customisable Tour Stats for all 13 Tours covered on Tour-Tips.

Golf Odds

For both the PGA Tour and the European Tour, there an analysis of the Betfair win market which is updated every 20 minutes from the start of the week on Monday to the end of the tournament on Sunday. This enable you to track the Betfair odds price of every player both before and during the tournament.

There are also links to the relevant page on the odds comparison site, OddChecker, for the outright odds for each Tour event, as well as links to Betfair's 'winner' market odds for each event. The books listed on the OddsChecker site are almost exclusively British, but this is not a significant restriction as each-way betting is the primary focus of outright betting at Tour-Tips.

Picks Archive & Betting Record

All betting tips, stats tables and odds are archived each week and these are fully searchable via the 'Archive' link in each Tour toolbar. The archived tips date back to the inauguration of this site for the start of the 2000 season, so it is easy to find out what has been written about an event in previous years.

Golf Database

Two fully searchable databases are available that cover all the men's and ladies' professional Tours. Features include basic scores, 'strokes gained', 'adjusted scores', positions by round and shots behind leaders, plus player stats per event on the primary Tours. More recently added database queries include the ability to search player performance relative to weather conditions, relative to other players in final-round contention, by comparison with how many weeks' rest or consecutive action, and there is a 'top players' query as well. There is also the facility to compare how two players have fared against each other by using the head-to-head database search. This should be particularly relevant for matchup betting.

Live Scores

The links for live scoring are updated each week, so finding the current leaderboard for any event has never been easier.

If you've any suggestions to improve the site, don't keep them to yourself, let us know.

Have a profitable season and we hope you enjoy the site!
