New Tipster Review: The Free Golf Site Up 44% ROI Since 2019

The latest SBC Tipster Review is out now and explores a golf service run by 2 anonymous experts with a fantastic track record on the PGA Tour.

The tipsters behind the site tell us they need to remain nameless because if their true identities were known, then they would be very familiar names to golf betting enthusiasts in the bookmaking world!

Their golf expertise is backed up by the performance we have tracked, which include a 102% ROI since March this year, when we started backing the tips with our own money.

Better still, we managed a 120% ROI placing them mostly at the Betfair Exchange!

Not to mention that…THESE TIPS ARE 100% FREE.

That’s right..a hugely profitable golf tipping service that gives out their tips for free.

In this detailed review we take a deep dive into the service and cover all you’ll need to know, including…

  • The betting record dating back to 2019 which showcases a 44% ROI and 321 point profit to date.
  • The betting record at betfair which shows a 120% ROI since March! That beats the bookmaker ROI of 102% and our thoughts on how easy it is to match the quoted odds.
  • Staking and bankroll management recommendations with a focus on the exchange – including SBC Editor, Pete’s top tip for the each-way markets at Betfair.
  • The progressive re-investment strategy that compounds your profits meaning bigger returns.

For a free service this is certainly worthy of our attention…

NEW VIDEO – SBC Golf, how it works, the profits made and which tipsters suit exchange only punters!

My latest video for SBC is out now!

In it I overview SBC Golf which is the area on the Smart Betting Club website dedicated to betting on one of our favourite sports.

This video is nicely timed as 2 out of the 3 tipsters picked the (comfortable) winner of the PGA Tour event on Sunday, Sung Jae Im at 35/1.

And it was nearly even better as the 3rd tipster had two 2nd placed finishers, including Adri Arnaus at 50/1 who lost in a playoff on the European Tour. So close to a hat-trick!

The winners this weekend have taken the SBC Golf profit tally to a new high (See results here) and I talk about each of the 3 tipsters in this video.

I cover the differences between each one, how they can benefit you and of course their betting records.

The 3 tipsters are as follows:

  • Golf Insider
  • PGA Profit
  • Weekly Golf Value

Each one has its own benefits, for example, 2 of them you can use to bet on the exchange.

I share the results for each one so you can see just how lucrative each service could be if you were a follower.

You can watch the video on YouTube via this link or below

Video Diary – Alex shows how he uses this special golf ‘value tool’ to bet on the US Open

It’s the US Open this week and to celebrate Alex has recorded another video in his video diary betting series, this time all about the profitable Golf Tool he uses.

In the video Alex explains exactly how he used it to pick his selections for the 2021 US Open at Torrey Pines.

He also updates us on his latest results from using this golf tool, which include an amazing 1st and 2nd place in last week’s European Tour event.

Safe to say that his results are still incredibly healthy.

You can see the exact process Alex uses to get these fantastic results when using this powerful betting tool by watching the video on the Smart Betting Club YouTube channel.

Not 1, not 2 but 3 golf winners this weekend

A couple of weeks ago saw the launch of SBC Golf – a dedicated new section devoted to 3 of the best tipsters around with superb track records betting on the sport.

Well these track records just keep on getting better as this weekend just gone, there were several reasons to celebrate, including for Weekly Golf Value, both the European Tour (John Catlin 50/1) and PGA Tour (Stewart Cink 125/1) winners.

In actual fact, Weekly Golf Value tipped up both golfers disputing the playoff in the European Tour with Catlin at 50/1 getting the best of Maximilian Kieffer at 125/1 to make it a win-win outcome whatever transpired. Then later on Sunday, Stewart Cink cruised to success at 125/1 to wrap up the perfect golfing weekend.

As one member just put it to me “Really amazing, never before have I actually been annoyed to win a golf tournament, as Kieffer would have won even more.

The winners didn’t end there though as Golf Insider also tipped up John Catlin to make it a weekend to remember with winners everywhere.

It was also a reminder that a winner in Austria or South Carolina during a couple of standard golfing tournaments, pays exactly the same as a winner in the Masters!

New Profit Highs

These winners have taken the already amazing results for the SBC Golf tipster trio to another level.

Weekly Golf Value’s record now stands at a £7,735.60 profit from 1123 bets at 49.92% ROI

Golf Insider is also now up 804.34 points from 2768 bets at 29.06% ROI.

You can explore all 3 tipsters via the new SBC Golf section and find specially discounted links including a £10 first month trial offer for Weekly Golf Value.

You can also examine the results in detail for all 3 tipsters via the SBC Golf Results spreadsheet.

Because if you are not yet betting on golf – you are really missing out!

P.S…The Masters Amazing Value

The US Masters starts this Thursday and bookmakers are falling over themselves to provide punters with the best offers.

Just under 90 golfers are teeing off and some firms like Skybet are offering each way payouts on the first 11. Paddy Power/Betfair and Boylesports pay out the first 10, William Hill the first 9 and even Bet365, Betfred and Betway the first 8.

When you consider of those golfers taking part, approximately 12 of them are over 1000/1 (the likes of Vijay Singh and Sandy Lyle have no chance) then you can see how good these each way terms are.

Usually on golf you can expect to get paid out on the first 8 golfers home from a field of 140. Yet here you are getting up to 11 on a field of realistically about 75 golfers. Only half of them have anywhere near a realistic chance of victory as well at the famous old course.

All told, this means there will be A LOT of great value bets around and a GREAT time to start betting on golf.

Introducing SBC Golf!

Introducing SBC Golf! Your new dedicated area to one of our most profitable sports to bet on.

Golf is fast becoming the number 1 sport for serious, winning bettors and so with this in mind, we have launched a new section of our website called SBC Golf today. Discover more at https://smartbettingclub.com/sbcgolf

With large ROI’s being made by several top tipsters and many professional and semi-professional punters, it’s clear to see why golf betting is becoming so popular.

SBC Golf outlines 3 of the best tipsters around that have powerful betting records for you to explore.

Between them, this trio offers you:

  • The potential for long term profits. These 3 tipsters have proven profitable records as made over several years betting.
  • The chance to bet with bookmakers or betting exchanges (or indeed a mix of the two – depending on what you have available to you)
  • A sport whereby you don’t have to chase odds or worry as much about betting restrictions

As a combination, the trio of SBC Golf Tipsters have made an outstanding 37.90% ROI from 4891 bets going back as far as April 2014. You can explore these results in bet-by-bet detail via the links up at SBC Golf.

Many SBC members have been following these tipsters for several years and this is what one of them had to say about his experience recently:

I joined just when Golf tournaments resumed after the Covid-break because I wanted to add more diversification in my betting-portfolio and also something that is more exchange-friendly. To be honest I had absolutely no interest before that in betting on Golf and also not really in watching it. That has completely changed since then! I have to say that Golf is now one of my main sports to bet on, because with experts like Matt, you get great returns on investment and also some exciting Sundays. I follow the tips win-only on exchanges, this might not be for everyone, but for serious investors that is the perfect fit in the portfolio!

Another big winner golf tipster winner – this time at 250/1!

Over the past 12 months, I have been reporting back regularly on just why so many shrewd bettors are now turning to golf to make a profit. It’s one reason why just last month, my team and I published a special golf betting report on a trio of profitable tipsters making the sport pay.

…And just last night, this focus on golf paid out once again in a BIG way with a huge 250/1 winner from one of the golf tipsters reviewed and recommended by the SBC team in this report.

The golfer in question was Scotsman, Martin Laird who after leading for long periods of day 4, slipped up towards the end of his round before winning in a playoff to spark celebrations from us all here at SBC Towers.

(If you want to see a few of my winning bet slips on Laird – drop me an email and I will be happy to share them!)

Laird’s victory was the latest in a long line of winners from this particular golf tipster, including 4 more at 3-figure-odds in the last year alone: Marc Warren (150/1), Rasmus Hojgaard (200/1), Corey Conners (175/1) and Cameron Champ (150/1).

Since 2014, this golfing expert has now made a 31.88% ROI from 2586 bets at level stakes as you can see in the table below:

Proving beyond reasonable doubt, this expert knows how to make a profit betting!

Ben Coley Interview

SBC: Hi Ben, thanks for agreeing to this interview! You are a very well-known name on the golf betting circuit these days, yet can you begin by outlining what attracted to you to betting on golf?

Ben: A love of golf, primarily. I started playing from a very young age and was handy for a while and it was always my favourite sport to watch on TV. The betting side was of course just as important; as the son of a betting shop manager I grew up settling football coupons at the dinner table on a Saturday night and I got a job at the head office of an independent firm when I was 16, again through the old man. It very much runs in the family.

SBC: Most people know about you from your Sporting Life tipping columns on golf betting, which continue to be very popular. How did this come about and when did you start writing and tipping for them?

Ben: I’ve been very, very lucky, and worked hard. After studying journalism at university (‘studying’ used loosely), I went back to work at the same place I’d been at since I was 16 and could easily have settled in for the long haul. Instead I took a chance on a low-paid radio job in Leeds and moved there at 23, and I’m still here at 34. The radio gig was in the same building as Sporting Life, who were under the same umbrella at the time, as was the digital side of Sky Sports. That’s how I met my first editor and Dave Tindall, who was working for Sky and Golf365 but writing betting previews for the Life, too. I’d been an avid reader of his for a long time and he was good enough to give me a chance.

I think it was my second or third preview when Bubba Watson somehow won a mad renewal of the Travelers at 50/1 and from that moment I became a regular contributor. I moved across to work full-time for Sporting Life not long after, and since 2015 I’ve been deputy editor there. I say that only to confirm that my job isn’t just golf tipping, thank heavens.

I think it was my second or third preview when Bubba Watson somehow won a mad renewal of the Travelers at 50/1 and from that moment I became a regular contributor

SBC: What is your normal column schedule for Sporting Life and what time and day can readers expect to find them published each week?

Ben: I begin writing my first preview at around 3pm every Monday and typically publish around 7pm, much of the research having been done the previous week. It varies as to whether I begin with the PGA or European Tour but generally the former now as for obvious reasons they reach a broader audience. Whichever preview comes next, that would usually be out by Tuesday lunchtime but sometimes other things get in the way. Mainly Zoom at the moment.

SBC: You preview and tip in both the PGA and European Tour events. Do you have any preference as per which tour offers the best value betting opportunities?

Ben: 100% the European Tour. I would say my best-known winners have still been the PGA Tour (Russell Henley at 300/1 in the Honda or Andrew Landry at 200/1 in Texas) but year after year it seems the standard increases and it’s very difficult to get the market leaders beat. Then you’ve got to establish whether it will be JT’s week, or Rory’s, or DeChambeau’s, or Rahm’s, and it’s difficult – especially when you’ve a general tendency to take on board more risk for a bigger price.

That’s why DJ winning the Travelers at 30/1 this year was so satisfying and why Koepka letting slip the St Jude at 33/1 was so infuriating. The European Tour is weaker, I would say those setting the odds know a little less about it, and there’s greater variety in terms of courses and conditions. All those things present opportunity, the one caveat being that players are far less reliable as a rule and Sundays can be fairly brutal if you are watching.

SBC: Onto the main reason for our interview – the excellent long-term profits you have achieved. Sporting Life have your record for the past 5 years at over 1000 points profit since 2016. Do you have any idea on other key metrics such as your Return on Investment, number of bets or the average amount staked per month or year?

Ben: Most months I stake 60-70 points, and on average it’d be around 750 per year on outright markets, meaning around 800 when you add major specials. Number of bets would be around five and a half per tournament on average, as I typically vary between five and six, sometimes seven or eight but occasionally only two or three. ROI-wise I hit between a 20 and 25% from 2015 onwards but I do appreciate it can be hard to get on at the advised prices sometimes, so all numbers have that asterisk for all that I’m proud of my record.

ROI-wise I hit between a 20 and 25% from 2015 onwards but I do appreciate it can be hard to get on at the advised prices sometimes

SBC: Furthermore – Sporting Life don’t list a record for you prior to 2016 but do highlight you were tipping between 2010 and 2015 and some of the winners you backed. Do you have any figures on overall profits, ROI etc… that you can share?

Ben: I’m afraid I don’t and it’s best I don’t get into the why – might swear and/or get in trouble. Suffice to say those records, both individually and for the entire site dating back as far as 2003, have been lost. I have some numbers but without any means of proving them I have to rely on 2016 onward, which I do think gives a fair indication of what to expect. Hopefully, 2020 will be my best year yet and I won’t have to bemoan the fact that 2012 and 2014 have been expunged.

SBC: Back to present day and you have been in superb form throughout this truncated golfing year with more than 450 points in the bag for 2020 already, yet in 2019 you lost 145 points. Do you feel this is ‘par for the course’ (pun intended) when golf betting and how patient do people need to be when golf betting and following your tips?

Ben: Yes, absolutely. I’ve probably improved in a couple of aspects, especially when it comes to the understanding and application of statistics. The PGA Tour has evolved rapidly in terms of breadth and quality of data and as a tipster you have to adjust, in the same way that a racing expert might now be incorporating sectionals and stride data.

It can throw you off, and I think that happened in 2019 as the European Tour also brought new numbers to the table – but the main difference between the two years can be described as rub of the green. I had a 100/1 play-off loser in December who ought to have won, and had he done so it basically takes care of everything; four or five tips won the week after I’d selected them, no end of close calls, and some potential season-changers just had difficult Sundays. Selections at 125/1, 66/1, 25/1 all leading with nine to play and not winning makes the world of difference and in 2020 things have just gone the other way. I’ve had 250/1 and 150/1 winners which went down the last, a 50/1 play-off winner who ought to have been beaten in regulation, and a couple of others who fell over the line somewhat.

Sami Valimaki winning in Oman at 250s was outrageous in the way the cards fell and last year I’d probably have been on Brandon Stone, who had been on my shortlist for the event and had his pocket picked on the very last hole. That’s golf betting in a nutshell.

Selections at 125/1, 66/1, 25/1 all leading with nine to play and not winning makes the world of difference and in 2020 things have just gone the other way

SBC: I can certainly relate to that as I am sure many readers can given how all-or-nothing betting on golf can be at times.

Given the above, I am interested to know how you cope with the frustrations that golf betting can bring. What advice do you have for punters following you in on dealing with the inevitable losing runs?

Ben: I take to twitter, basically. Otherwise I’ve been doing it long enough that I can generally get over things quickly, after a tweet storm or a WhatsApp or two, and a sleep. I would also say that golf is a bit different to most other sports for those reasons – even the strongest favourite on the PGA Tour now might have a 15% chance of actually winning.

I write long, detailed previews, and fortunately numbers remained strong when the tips weren’t going well. That means I can sit down the next Monday and type knowing it’s not for nothing, whatever happens. Relatedly I think in general, there aren’t many people who follow every point and every selection. They read the analysis, read someone else’s, combine it with their own ideas, and might take one or two of mine. And at risk of sounding glib, if ever there was a time to remember this job is a bit daft – like, its very existence sometimes seems amazing to me – it is now. So what if things don’t go well for a while. I know what I’m doing, I’m trying my best every single week, and I feel lucky to have a loyal readership who understand the nature of the sport.

There’s some pressure, but not stress, and I think that’s an important distinction. Plus it helps that my wife really couldn’t care less and my son is far too young to. It’s hard to justify dwelling on things for too long.

I’m trying my best every single week, and I feel lucky to have a loyal readership who understand the nature of the sport.

SBC: Some good advice there – it sounds like you have a good mindset and setup on how to cope with the stress and strains of golf betting, especially when as a tipster you have a lot of people following you in each week.

Given the fluctuations across a standard 4 day golf event, do you ever trade on your tips in-play? For example if you back a golfer at 100/1 before the tournament starts and he is leading going into day 4. Would you lay him at a short price and lock in profit or simply let it ride out?

Ben: I used to, but trading was never really my forte. Enhanced each-way terms in golf also mean it’s less important, at least at a recreational level, and I pride myself on a record which can’t legislate for that. I put up Justin Thomas at Muirfield Village this summer and he led by three with three left, went 1.04, and didn’t win. I know some of my followers got out in front, some backed him each-way, but my win-only recommendation goes down as a loser. Silly as it may sound to your readers – serious, dare I say semi-professional punters – the things I value most in my job are the quality of my work and the record it helps produce. What I win or lose is secondary and always has been. I get paid to do it and that’s my priority.

SBC: A good staking plan is important whatever you bet on – can you outline how yours work and how you judge how much to risk on any given player or tournament in total?

Ben: I’m going to sound like a politician but there are many people with much brighter things to say about bankroll management and there’s nothing much I can bring to that table. I started off following the template Dave Tindall set for the website a long time ago and while the total investment has nudged up a little, a reflection of playing for seven or eight rather than five or six places, not much has changed. I tend to go win-only at shorter than 16/1, two points each-way from around 16 to 33, one from 40 to 200 and maybe a half from there, but it does vary according to confidence levels and each-way terms. I know some traders will tell you every price is bang on these days but I think that’s a total nonsense and if there’s a player I like at 250/1 who I think should be closer to 100s, I’ll go the full point, and so on. Sorry, this is a bit of a non-answer.

SBC: Finally, given your popularity in golf betting circles, what advice do you have for those worried about the odds on the golfers you identify being forced downwards by the bookmakers? I ask this as I note at times the odds do come under pressure!

Ben: I get asked this a lot and appreciate it can be difficult, although bookmakers do tend to be a little short-termist with it – six months ago most of my tips held in the market but now they shorten immediately. It’s a shame they can do so without laying a bet but I understand that side of the industry and the job they have to do. In terms of advice, have as many accounts as you can, be prepared to walk into a betting shop, and also keep an eye on the exchanges on a Wednesday.

Once things have died down you’ll often see my selections drift out again and while not reflected on the high street as it were, if you are an exchange punter you’ll often get a considerably bigger price

Once things have died down you’ll often see my selections drift out again and while not reflected on the high street as it were, if you are an exchange punter you’ll often get a considerably bigger price, particularly if they overreact to the weather forecast which does happen a fair bit.
