Online sportsbook have opened the doors to betting for many sports fans. With the meat of the online sportsbook Betting season just around the corner the enormous selection of betting sites should make the hunt for a sporsbook easier than ever. Everyone knows that the Super bowl is just days away and March Madness has online sportsbooks going nuts in preparation, but one very exciting sport that is often overlooked in discussions about the online sportsbook industry is golf.
For those sportsbook fans not in the know, the PGA Tour season starts up with the New Year and the first PGA event actually took place the first weekend of January. Many golf fans took advantage of the occasion by wagering on an online sportsbook, but many others are still waiting for the ‘real’ golf season to begin before playing online sportsbook odds. By that of course I mean the presence of Tiger Woods.
The Buick Invitational will mark his first foray into pro golf in 2008 and will be the first tournament on boards that he will be a part of. This may not seem all that significant to no non-sports fans, but to people who regularly follow golf on the online sportsbook boards, Tiger’s presence is a huge deal. No other single athlete in any sport covered by online sportsbooks has such a presence as Woods.
Simply put, without Woods the online sportsbook golf betting industry would be half the size it is today, perhaps smaller. There would still be interest from the diehard segment of golf sportsbook fans but little more beyond that. Few times in history, in fact, has a single athlete propelled an entire sport into the spotlight. Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretsky… the list would seem to end there, but these types of athletes are once in a lifetime in terms of online sportsbook betting opportunities and should not be missed.
So, if you’ve ever thought of trying your hand at online sportsbook betting in the area of golf, but you’ve always found excuses, why you shouldn’t? Stop procrastinating. Look up an online sportsbook on the Internet and let your fantasy begin.
