More than $ 10 billion a year is wagered on golf here in the United States alone. This beats all other game actions in most other sports combined! The only thing more important is the Super Bowl and the Final Four.
Clearly, like those events, only one winner will be declared, right?
That’s what my golf lessons are all about: teaching you the different gambling games, the science of betting, strategy, attitude and more.
One game that is quite popular with the high-yield, big-money set of stakes is a partner game named after the volatile card game of Bridge.
Bridge, (the golf version) definitely puts a lot of pressure on you and your partner to perform. It is not for the faint of heart and can definitely show who has the strength and who is lacking.
So when you gain an advantage, you can really pressure your opponents to do so as well.
Here is the basic summary of a game that requires a lot of ball, skill, psychology, and the ability to read your opponents:
Teams with two alternate holes, bidding the number of strokes that will be the total score of their two balls. For example, if team A thinks it can finish par 5 in 11 strokes, team B can do the following:
1. Accept this bet and wait for team A to get a higher score.
2. Bid less than 11 for your own score.
3. Accept the 11-hit offer and double the bet. Team A can redouble it if they are confident enough to do so.
The team winning the hole gets two points for their bid and an additional point for each stroke under their bid. 2 points are deducted if the team fails in its bet and 1 point per hit is subtracted over its bet.
Make things even more interesting by making UFA arrangements so that if both partners birdie, the points are doubled. Playing for $ 100 a point can have losers hitting their pay stubs on the 18th hole!
One key to this game is to scrutinize your partners well or you’ll be sweating big when you start to rack up 8 after 8.
Good luck, good hurry.
