Those of us lucky enough to play golf will understand the wild swings in form our mediocre talent affords us. They’ll agree how humbling the endeavour can be, when one can shoot 40 points  one day and yet struggle to make a 3-foot putt the next. It’s a game of ridiculous extremes given how repeatable a golf swing is (or at least should be) and the relative lack of physical pressure one is under when playing.
The same can’t be said of professionals though, right? After all, they are the best 2,000 odd specimens on the planet… Well, I contend that their performances are equally volatile. Sure, they are unlikely to shoot a hundred but 80s are frequent occurrences on tour, and 90s aren’t unheard of. The variance of their 18-hole totals may not be as wide as you and I, but predicting their 72-hole score presents an equally difficult challenge.
So, with that introduction, why even consider betting golf?
