How to bet on golf

Golf used to be a game for retired old men to take up when their working days were behind them.

Not anymore. Golf has become a game for all ages and is used as a conference table on the fairways for business meetings. As popularity in the sport has surged, so has betting on golf.

Woods Favorite at British Open

After coming up short at The Masters and the U.S. Open Tiger Woods gets another shot at a Major victory this week at a course he's dominated in the British Open.

The British Open returns to the Old Course at St. Andrews this week, and in the past that has meant an easy victory for Tiger. In 2000 Woods won his first British Open championship at St. Andrews in grand fashion after shooting 19 under par in the tournament. That was eight strokes better than Thomas Bjorn and Ernie Els, who tied for second place at 11 under.
