Official Tour Sites

PGA Tour

Excellent coverage of not just PGA Tour, but also the Web.com and Champions Tours, plus the WGC events. In terms of official Tour sites, this is clearly the market leader with its real-time scoring and stats offerings putting the other Tour sites to shame. In terms of real-time scoring, the graphical interface of TourCast (launched in March 2003) was a huge step forward while the ability to see shot-by-shot data on the leaderboard remains the only one of its kind. In terms of stats, there is a much larger category of stats provided than on other Tour sites. Now includes the Latinoamerica and Canadian Tours as they have moved under the PGA Tour umbrella.

European Tour

Excellent coverage of European Tour events, naturally, with excellent player profiles detailing every tournament they have played on the European Tour. In this respect, it is a better than the PGA Tour site. It also provides real-time scoring on the European Tour, Challenge Tour and European Seniors Tour and the live scoring blog feed is a welcome addition, but it is still a long way short of the live scoring information available on the PGA Tour site. It is also a pity that the Tour stats information is so limited in comparison to the PGA Tour.

LPGA Tour

Impressive looking site that offers real-time scoring and some statistical coverage for each player as well. The leaderboard has the novel facility for the user to select up to 10 players and have the leaderboard just display those players, while the stats information is fairly standard. A novel feature is contained on the players profile pages via the 'Performance Chart ...' link. This provides a full stats and results summary for that player for any given year since 2004.

PGA Tour of Australasia

An improving website for the Australasian Tour. It used to be extremely slow to load and very light on content, but it is much faster now. One issue is that there used to be player profiles and some coverage of player statistics, but these have now been removed so the content is rather light. The real-time scoring feature is generally good though, although basic compared to the Tour sites outlined above.

Southern African Tour

A very good site for one of the lesser Tours. There is real-time scoring with some customisable options and past results are searchable back to the 1990/91 season which is impressive. The player profile pages are a good feature, though the player stats do not extend beyond basic scoring info and there are no rankings of Tour stats categories available on this site other than basic scoring data.

Asian PGA Tour

When the players themselves took over this Tour, the development of a Tour site was not a priority, but it did receive a significant upgrade during the 2006 season and is now a full working resource for this Tour with real-time scoring, some event information, player profile pages and a small selection of Tour stats categories. It is just a pity that information for the pre-2004 era is not available on this site. The other gripe is that player stats are only available for those players that make the cut each week.

Japan Tour

Low on graphics, but high on quality. Fully searchable index of results and player statistics covering more than a decade and real-time scoring as well. This was the first Tour to offer a hole-by-hole leaderboard, but there have been no further refinements. Excellent coverage of statistics - much better than the European Tour - and the player profile pages are also very complete on statistical information, including the player's blood type!

Ladies European Tour

Completely overhauled in 2012 and while the leaderboard has a more slick feel to it, there is no longer the ability to select individual players for a customised leaderboard. There remains an impressive player profile section and there is once again the ability to retrieve historical results back to 2000. However, site lists only the top-20 players each in Tour stats categories so that is of limited use.

 

Golf Content Sites

Golf Golf Challenge

Very informative site as would be expected from a dedicated golf TV channel. Plenty of analysis, text-based and video, of the PGA Tour in particular, though coverage of events outside the U.S. is rather secondary for a dedicated golf TV channel. The site's leaderboards have improved in recent years, but remain buggy, particularly with respect to adding 'favourite players'

Golfweek

A very good site as a resource for golf results around the globe with results for each of the top-level Tours available since 1999. This information had been unavailable for some time after the site revamp in 2005, but it is now back again. In terms of statistics, it is home to the Sagarin golf ratings, which are an excellent reference point for any golf punter.

iseekgolf.com

Australian site that provides excellent coverage of events on the Australasian Tour and other professional tournaments held in Australia. Also provides good coverage with daily updates on scores for most Tours each week and is generally a very informative site about golf.

 

Sports Forums

Mad Jack's Sports Forum

Where you'll find Stanley's picks posted. Lots of high quality 'cappers of US sports and a number of golf 'cappers from all over the world as well. The biggest and the best of all the sports forums! Has a specific golf forum and and has hosted a golf contest since 2000.

 

The Competition (other golf tipster sites)

Sports Betting Index

Established in 2000, it is almost as old a Tour-Tips! This site has a primary focus on golf with an emphasis upon backing players at big odds, though there is a Football Betting Index site as well. The live blog and the newsletter are widely read and, together with the betting tools and bookmaker reviews, this is a highly recommended site.

Sporting Life

Good previews of each PGA and European Tour event from a variety of writers, though Ben Coley and Dave John are the main golf pundits. Focus is on outright plays with UK bookmakers and their picks do show a profit each season, which is an impressive feat as the best prices are usually gone by the time that the previews are written.

BettingMad

A long-established golf betting site, but has since discontinued providing tips. Its unique feature is a desktop program that can be downloaded which enables the database to be searched without an internet connection.

Golf Betting System

A site with dedicated tipsters for the PGA and European Tours and both showing consistent profits year-on-year. In terms of stats, there are weekly stats relating to course history and, in particular, there is a unique Golf Betting System player ranking which the user can customise. This enables to user to change the weightings within the GBS rankings and display the top-25 ranked players according to the new weightings.
