Johnnie Walker Classic Betting Guidelines

There are several factors you should consider before picking your favourite players for the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic.

First, check previous Johnnie Walker Classic winners and the performance of the top golfers in other PGA tournaments and European Tour tournaments. Identifying players who have consistently done well and are continuing to show good performance in other tournaments gives you the best start.

Favourites in Johnnie Walker Classic betting for 2009 will include Anthony Kim and Colin Montgomerie as well as those who scored best in recent Johnnie Walker Classic tournaments. These players include:

  • 2008 winner Mark Brown from New Zealand

Johnnie Walker Classic Betting Options

Johnnie Walker Classic punters have lots of choices – from betting on the first nine or the last nine, to betting on places, individual rounds, and even groups of players. You can choose to bet on whether one player will outscore another over one round (known as a two-ball bet) or on whether one player will outscore another two players over one round (known as a three-ball bet).

You can also choose to “bet each way” – a combination of betting to win and place betting. You pay the same stake for each part of the bet. For example, if you pay £1 each way for a player winning at 5/1, you would get £5 for the win plus £2.50 for the place. If the player does not win but finishes in a place, you win only the place bet.

Combination betting involves combining more than one type of bet, but you must win all the bets to win a payout. The payout is equal to all the individual odds multiplied.
