Golf bet


Recommended Posts


I put a golf bet on for a neighbour. The bet was

Two tournaments 

£2.50 double (5.00)

22/1  first 4 places 1/4 odds   Won

12/1  first 4 places 1/5 odds   Forth


On the settled bet its saying

1-3 places  1/4 odds

1-1 places  1/1 odds


I don't  bet on golf  so not sure if this is right.

On line bet calculators say  total return £55.25  where William Hill have paid £27

Which is right?

If the player finished clear 4th (no-one else on the same score as him/her) then the correct payout would have been £55.25 but if they were tied with one other player then it would be halved to £27.63 (Half stake treated as a winner and half treated as a loser as the players are sharing 4th and 5th place.). If more than 2 players were tied for 4th place then the settlement is generous!

(Just to check something; I assume you didn't write "equally divided" or "E.D." on the slip? - I'm not sure if Hill's would accept such an instruction for a golf bet but it would have a bearing on the correct settlement!)
