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 a sportsbook promo that essentially guarantees free money, and Parx in Pennsylvania has one that is pretty darn close to a lock.

Parx Sportsbook Promotion

Bet $25 Pre-Tourney, Win $50 if Anyone Birdies the 1st Hole

  • Bet now: Click here
  • Available state: Pennsylvania
  • Who’s it for? First time users

Taking advantage of this offer is simple if you’re in the state of Pennsylvania:

Step 1: Click this link and make sure that the promo code GOLFACTION is filled in on the third page of the registration flow

Step 2: Deposit at least $25 into your Parx account

Step 3: Place at least a $25 bet on the Charles Schwab Invitational. It can be any bet, so long as it has odds of -250 or longer (e.g. -200, +100, +300, etc.) Parlays, free bets and daily specials are excluded. See full terms here.

Fast forward a few days and it’s very, very, very likely you’ll have $50 in free bets sitting in your account. (If your initial bet wins, you’d also get paid out for that, too, of course.)

Let’s be honest here — it would take a miracle (in Parx’s case) for any hole on the golf course to register zero birdies for the entire four-day tournament. The first hole, however, would need something more than a miracle … a super miracle.

Statistically speaking, it’s likely that someone in the first group on Thursday morning will walk away with a circle on their scorecard.

Hole No. 1 at Colonial Country Club, for those who haven’t played it, is the easiest hole on the course. It’s a 566-yard par 5 that pros are birdieing nearly 45% of the time and have posted an average score of 4.60. The -0.4 average score in relation to par is light years lower than the second-easiest hole, which happens to be the 2nd hole at just -0.12.

Let’s just say you and your buddies could go out and play the hole for four straight days and there’d be multiple birdies.

You get the point — someone is getting a 4 on this hole, there will even be some 3s, which means you’re going to win $50 in free bets. Even better: You only have to put those free bets back into play once before you can withdraw them.

Make sure to claim this promo before the tournament tees off on Thursday morning!
