Online Golf Betting: The RBC Canadian Open has been a staple on the golf map since 1904, running annually outside of years cancelled due to a couple of little dust ups known as World War I & II. The tradition of the Canadian Open stands with the elite tournaments in the world. It is the fourth oldest tournament in professional golf, behind only the U.S. Open, the Western Open, and the British Open.
You may not pay much attention to golf outside of the majors, but the Canadian Open used to be on par with any tournament in the world in terms of prestige. To me, the history of this event, and thus the quality of entrants, makes it deserving of some golf wagering online.
The 2013 RBC Canadian Open kicks off on Thursday, July 25 and continues through the weekend, finishing up on Sunday, July 28. While the tournament was originally played at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, the oldest golf club on the continent, this year's event takes place at Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville, Ontario. Glen Abbey has hosted the event 25 times over the last 35 years, standing as the most recognizable course for the Canadian Open.
Last year, the event went to Scott Piercy in the Las Vegas native's second career PGA Tour win. While Piercy stands as a relative unknown, this tournament has seen some of the top names in golf claim its title, including Jim Furyk, Vijay Singh, Greg Norman, and Tiger Woods.
Tune in starting on Thursday, July 25, as some of the top golfers in the world will descend upon Ontario for one of the most historic events on the PGA Tour. Your golf wagering online needs are all taken care of at BookMaker's live lines, so head there now and make your wager.
How to bet on RBC Canadian Open
The odds of a golfer to win the RBC Canadian Open will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the RBC Canadian Open, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the RBC Canadian Open will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
2013 RBC Canadian Open Winner - Brandt Snedeker wins the 2013 RBC Canadian Open
Brandt Snedeker's two-year jaunt to the top of the world rankings continued on Sunday, as the No. 7 player clinched his second straight multi-win season with a victory at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open. Snedeker started the season finishing inside the top three in three of his first four starts, before finally breaking through at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. That February win came on the heels of back-to-back runner-up finishes to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, but Snedeker has established himself alongside those two Hall of Famers as one of America's best.
Snedeker made his first big splash at last year's FedExCup, where he clinched things in Atlanta to cash the $10 million prize. He's repeatedly contended at major championships, but has yet to put it all together on Sunday for one of those career-defining wins. The Vandy product had an adventurous week at Muirfield, four-putting for triple bogeys but then getting his putter rolling later on the weekend to finish T11. He's almost always around the first page of the leaderboard, whether it's a major or regular PGA Tour stop and he started this week as the favorite of the oddsmakers.
2012 RBC Canadian Open Winner - Piercy wins RBC Canadian Open
Four straight birdies put Scott Piercy into the mix early. One big par at the end made him a winner Sunday at the Canadian Open.
Piercy won for the second time in his career when he closed with a 3-under 67, and William McGirt and Robert Garrigus stumbled on the closing stretch at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to finish a stroke back.
McGirt, atop the leaderboard for much of the final round, had his first three-putt bogey of the week on the 15th hole when he ran a 45-foot putt some 15 feet by the hole. Tied for the lead playing the 18th, he put his approach into the bunker and blasted out to 18 feet, missing the par putt that would have forced a playoff. McGirt closed with a 69.
Garrigus, the 54-hole leader, missed six putts inside 8 feet. The last one was the most costly. He three-putted from long range just off the green on the 16th, missing an 8-footer for par that left him one shot behind. He missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th to force a playoff and had to settle for a 70.
Piercy won while sitting in the clubhouse. Moments earlier, he two-putted for par from 50 feet on the 18th to finish on 17-under 263 and tie the oldest 72-hole scoring record on the PGA Tour. Johnny Palmer had a 263 when he won the Canadian Open in 1952 at St. Charles in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
It was the second time Piercy has won on the PGA Tour in the last year. He picked up his first win at the Reno-Tahoe Open last year, which is held next week for players who don't get into the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone. Now, Piercy is headed to his first World Golf Championship, and then off to the PGA Championship. More perks arrive next year when Piercy goes to Augusta National for the first time to play in the Masters.
2011 RBC Canadian Open Winner - Unlikely Winner at Canadian Open
Last week, Sean O'Hair narrowly missed the cut at the Open Championship and yesterday, he savored victory at the RBC Canadian Open.
O'Hair was a surprise winner. The victory was his first top 15 finish of the year. He'd missed 10 of 17 cuts heading into the only Canadian stop on the PGA circuit and after Wednesday's pro-am opener, described his play as "horrific." This season, he'd fired his swing coach (Tiger Woods's new swing guru, Canadian Sean Foley) and caddy, another Canuck, Brennan Little.
But O'Hair managed to turn around his game on a challenging Shaughnessy course that saw many casualties, tapping in for bogey on the first playoff hole before watching Kris Blanks lip out on a five-foot bogey putt. For his efforts, O'Hair netted the nearly $1 million top prize and 500 points in the FedEx Cup standings to move into 43rd overall in the standings.
