Online sports betting fans now have a huge variety of sports to bet on, not simply the regular generic sports such as football, basketball, and baseball as in the past. One of the sports that have grown tremendously thanks to the development of the online sports betting industry has been golf. In previous years golf was considered a bit of a dud when it came to sports betting.
But more than just increased access to sports betting, online sports betting has also increased the betting opportunity for many sports that previously flew under the radar. Much of this was because golf was seen as a bit of boring an elitist sport for old people.
But when Internet online sports betting sites began popping up and more people became familiar with online sports betting, more sports fans were willing to give golf a try. Also, during the summer months when the only major sport is baseball, the major golf championships provide a nice alternative and a bit of variety for online sports betting fans.
In the late 1900’s golf was a sport that most people would never really consider a subject worthy of online sports betting. The reason for that, more than any other, is that golf can be very boring to watch and as online sports betting fans know, boring does not sell.
But with improved coverage of major golf tournaments, came a new interest from online sports betting fans. With improved cameras, better angles, and stronger lenses that were capable of capturing distant shots in a way that golf cameramen had never been able to previously, the market for online sports betting odds for golf tournaments began to grow.
Other reasons for growth in the area of golf as an online sports betting topic also grew out of the fact that for the first time in decades a fresh crop of young golfers seemed to captivate the audience. Players like Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, David Duval and many others helped to usher in golf as one of the top sports in the online sports betting world.
Not all of these players are still at the top of their games but their impact on online sports betting should be forgotten.
