I'd like to welcome everyone to Golf Picks dot Net. The men have teed it up for the 2013 season and it is going to be another great golf season. Last year, in 2012, we capped off our 7th straight profiting season with our golf picks, and I am back to provide a 8th straight winning season for those interested in betting on golf. More about how my golf picks will work for 2013 posted below...
Very Important: In 2013 I am offering a yearly membership, which will give everyone an even more affordable option. You can sign up to get ALL of my 2013 golf picks at www.Golfbanker.com.

2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational Picks
That was quite the tournament last week. Sang-Moon Bae picked up his first career PGA Tour victory, and we had our 90 to 1 shot in contention all tournament (Scott Piercy). A tough Sunday eventually hurt Piercy, but we come right back this week with some excellent selections. The Tour makes the short trip down the road [...]
HP Byron Nelson Championship Picks 2013
We move on after a tough week at The PLAYERS. Once again we were teased with players being all around the lead and came up just short. Tiger Woods claimed his 4th victory of 2013 in a very entertaining golf tournament. Despite another close call, we will continue to work towards our 8th straight winning [...]
The Players Championship Picks 2013
Last week we came very close with 3 players, but it ended up being an alternate to the tournament who achieved his first PGA Tour victory. We had Stanley, Westwood and Moore all there on the final day but could not hold on at the end. We now move onto The Players Championship. This week [...]
I am an avid golfer and have followed the PGA since I can remember. Using this previous knowledge along with weekly research I found myself predicting winners of the golf tournaments. My goal here is to pass on my knowledge to others and work together so we all profit over the course of a season. The picks that will help us accomplish this will be Outright Winners (picked at the beginning of the tournament) as well as head to head golfer matchups.
Below I will explain how I will make my weekly golf picks:
Predicting winners from the beginning of a tournament can pay off anywhere from 3 to 1 (Tiger Woods) to 200 to 1 (Louis Oosthuizen). Our goal is to hit the players in between.
Each week I will break down the tournament with everything from the location, style of golf course, as well as players who have previously played well at that particular venue. Golf is all about knowledge of the course and comfort level. All of us golfers know that when you're in the zone it's usually when you're comfortable with the layout of the course and your swing.
Utilizing this information I will offer a six pack of golfers for whom I think will win the tournament that particular week. I will explain my selections for each of the six golfers so you can understand the logic behind the golf pick.
We will be placing 1 unit on any picks on outright winners (we usually pick 6 golfers using the 6 pack system, but it can depend on the tournament). For example: We place 1 unit on six different golfers. We picked the winner of the tournament and the odds were 30 to 1 for him to win the event. We picked 6 golfers during the week totalling 6 units. We put 1unit on each golfer so we are + 24 units for the tournament.
Head to Head betting (offered through email) is a way of betting on golf where you pick one golfer to beat another golfer. This is most common in a 72 Hole matchup (the entire tournament) but also can be individual round match ups. This type of golf betting is another way of profiting/winning money that cannot be overlooked.
Head to head betting example: In head to head betting if the odds are -115 we will risk 1.15 unit to win 1. If the odds are +120 we will risk 1 to win 1.2 units. We choose Tiger Woods (+115) over Rory McIlroy in a head to head match up. Tiger Woods finishes with a better score, and therefore we profit +1.15 units (we risked 1 unit to win 1.15 units).
I display my record and my +/- units at the top of this page so you know how I am doing over the course of this PGA season.
