Head-to-head betting in golf is a type of wager where you pick which of two golfers will perform better in a given round or tournament.
The wager is based on the golfers’ scores relative to each other, regardless of their performance relative to the rest of the field.
Head-to-head betting is similar to 3-ball betting but only has two golfers instead of three.
For example, if Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are paired together in the first round of the PGA Championship, a head-to-head bet would be who will have a lower score in that round.
If you bet on Spieth and he shoots a 70 while Thomas shoots a 72, you would win the bet.
Head-to-head betting can be done for individual rounds or for an entire tournament. It is a popular type of golf betting because it simplifies the wagering process by only involving two golfers rather than the entire field.
What Happens If a Head-to-Head Bet Ties?
If a head-to-head bet ends in a tie, the wager is voided.
So, if Thomas and Spieth both shoot a 70, the bet is voided no matter which player was bet on.
