European Tour Golf Betting Odds: If you're looking for the best advice for golf wagering gambling, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Irish Open, which will take place from June 27th through 30th, 2013, at Carton House GC in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Republic of Ireland, in Padraig Harrington, Rory McIlroy, Simon Dyson and Ross Fisher.
Jamie Donaldson held off a field of impressive golfers to win the Irish Open a year ago and has dreams of a repeat in this year's tournament. The four-day event will be held from June 27th through 30th, 2013 at Carton House GC in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Republic or Ireland. Donaldson shot an 18-under to cruise to a four-stroke victory last year and could be among the favorites once again in golf wagering.
No golfer has repeated at the Irish Open since Colin Montgomerie pulled the feat in 1996 and 1997. Donaldson outlasted a field which included Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell last year but he would still be bucking the odds to do so again. McIlroy, who is the world's No. 2 ranked player, could be the golfer to beat if he decides to participate in this event, so keep an eye on that news.
Padraig Harrington won here in 2007 in a playoff and has the ability to make another run. Other recent former winners include Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher, Shane Lowry and Richard Finch. Sergio Garcia is a prominent former winner, while Montgomerie has three total titles at the Irish Open on his resume. Montgomerie (2001) and Fisher (2011) have the lowest aggregate score in tournament history at 266, while Christy O'Connor, Jr. (1975) and Bernhard Langer (1984) are tied for the lowest score under par at minus-21. Donaldson is the defending champion at the Irish Open but the field should once again be formidable with players like McIlroy, Clarke and Harrington in the mix in golfwagering.

How to bet on The Irish Open
The odds of a golfer to win the The Irish 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 The Irish Open, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in European Golf 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 The Irish 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 European Golf golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of European golf betting without to much trouble.
2013 Irish Open Winner - Paul Casey wins Irish Open by 3 strokes
Paul Casey made a 50-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole Sunday and won the Irish Open by three strokes.
The 35-year-old Englishman trailed by four shots entering the final round. He closed with a 5-under 67 that featured a stretch of five birdies in six holes from No. 8 to No. 13. He finished at 14-under 274 in winning his 14th career title.
Casey was sidelined at the start of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury from a snowboarding accident. This is his first win since the 2011 season-opening Volvo Champions in Bahrain.
England's Robert Rock (71) and third-round leader Dutchman Joost Luiten (74) shared second at 277.
2012 Irish Open Winner - Jamie Donaldson celebrates his first win after 255 events at Royal Portrush
It was a long, perhaps tortuous wait, but it was well worth it. For Royal Portrush and Jamie Donaldson both.
While the former was euphoric at hosting Northern Ireland’s first top-level professional tournament in 59 years, the latter celebrated his first win after 255 events.
Their victories came so naturally. The course, and indeed the region, performed as if they had been holding big golf tournaments for years, while the Welshman, the champion by four shots, performed as if he had been winning big titles for years. What a way for this pair to break their droughts.
As Donaldson peered over his 20-footer on the last for a 66 and an 18-under total, a vast proportion of the 30,000 attendance surrounded the green. The putt dropped – it just had to – and the 36 year-old took off his hat and, with a flourish, took a bow. In truth, every visored-fanatic should have done the same.
2011 Irish Open Winner - Dyson Wins Irish Open
England's Simon Dyson closed with a 4-under 67 to win the Irish Open. The European Tour event was played at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club in County Kerry.
In notching his fifth title, Dyson edged Australian Richard Green by a stroke, finishing at 15-under 269. Green led by a shot at one point on the back nine, but a bogey on the last led him to a 68 and a total of 14-under 270.
Dyson has been on a bit of a roll after finishing ninth in the British Open two weeks ago. "It's a shame you can't bottle how you feel sometimes. It's amazing, it really is. The golf I've played this week is probably the best I've ever played," said Dyson, who earned $362,837 with the Irish Open title.
Scotland's Stephen Gallacher (68) ended up in solo third at 12-under 272, one spot ahead of Austria's Bernd Wiesberger, who had a 66.
The marquee twosome of Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell, two Northern Irishmen who've won the past two U.S. Opens, had mixed results in the final round at Killarney. McIlroy closed with an even-par 71 to finish at 3-under 281, while McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open champion at Pebble Beach, went one stroke better with a 70.
