Golf. Is. Back!

This week’s Charles Schwab Challenge marks the first PGA TOUR event since the season was put on hold due to COVID-19, and while we’ve had a couple of nice charity events in the interim, there’s nothing like the real thing.

There’s also nothing like sportsbook promos that essentially guarantee free money, and two sportsbooks, BetMGM and PointsBet, have done just that in Indiana.

BetMGM Sportsbook

Offer: Bet $1, Win $50 if Rory McIlroy Makes a Birdie

Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 golfer in the world and pre-tournament favorite, is your ticket to an easy $50. The Northern Irishman has 104 birdies this season in 24 rounds, which comes out to more than 17 per four-round tournament. Even in his single worst round of the season, a 76, he sunk two birdies.

So, yeah, McIlroy is going to make a birdie this week, which means you should be taking advantage of this promotion if you’re in Indiana.

Here’s how you can get in on the action:

Step 1: Click this link and sign up for an account at BetMGM.

Step 2: Deposit at least $10

Step 3: Bet $1 on Rory McIlroy to win the Charles Schwab Challenge as your first bet.

If you don’t see this until after the tournament starts, don’t worry! You’ll still be able to bet on this promo all the way through the end of the day on Friday.

Users will be paid in $50 worth of free bets, assuming Rory makes a birdie, and those free bets only need to be put back into play once before they’re eligible to be withdrawn.

In summary:

  • Bet on Rory
  • Tune in to the Charles Schwab Challenge
  • Pray he doesn’t have the worst tournament of his life
  • Win $50

PointsBet Sportsbook

Offer: Bet $50+ on Any Golfer to Win Outright & Win $100 if that Golfer Makes One Birdie

  • Who’s it for: New customers

Let’s face it — hitting a winner in golf can be hard. You bet a favorite, a 100-1 longshot comes through with the win. You bet on some longshots, the favorite wins.

PointsBet gets it, so it has put together quite an offer for golf’s return: If you bet $50 on any golfer to win the Charles Schwab Challenge, you’ll get $100 if free bets if/when that golfer makes a birdie.

Here’s how to take advantage of this illustrious promo (either before or during the tournament … it’s live until the final round tees off):

Step 1: Sign up through this link and deposit at least $50 into your account.

Step 2: Place your FIRST wager at PointsBet on a golfer to win this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge.

That it. Seriously. As long as your golfer has at least one birdie after you place your bet, you’ll have $100 in free bets deposited into your PointsBet account. Those free bets only need to be put back into play once before you can withdraw them.

If you need some help narrowing down the long list of golfers, our experts Jason Sobel and Joshua Perry like Rickie Fowler, Tony Finau, Justin Rose, Viktor Hovland, Abraham Ancer,  Joaquin Niemann and Kevin Kisner.

Of course, if your golfer wins, you’re going to be raking in some heavy cash. Given the minimum $50 bet, the least you’d win on a pre-tourney bet would be $375 (Rory McIlroy at +750).

Regardless of who you choose, it’s very likely he’ll have at least one birdie. Good luck!
