The LPGA has reached a multi-year agreement with BetMGM to become the tour’s first official betting operator, announced Wednesday.
As part of the deal, LPGA odds will be featured on BetMGM’s weekly menu alongside various other professional golf tours.
“As a leading sports and entertainment company and already a supporter of women’s golf, BetMGM is uniquely positioned to join the LPGA family as an Official Betting Operator,” said Brian Carroll, senior vice president of global media distribution for the LPGA.
“Sports betting and digital gaming are key elements of the future of sports, and BetMGM is on the forefront of both opportunities,” Carroll added. “We are happy to partner with them as we look to provide more opportunities for our fans to interact with the LPGA and learn about our incredible athletes.”
The LPGA has an off week on the schedule, but returns stateside next week for the Pure Silk Championship presented by Visit Williamsburg in Virginia.
That event will be followed by the inaugural Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play hosted by Shadow Creek, a venue which also hosted the PGA TOUR’s CJ Cup last year, in Las Vegas.
BetMGM is also one of four official betting operators for the PGA TOUR.
