As we have commented many times on these pages the introduction of online sports gambling has had a huge effect on the sports gambling opportunities we now have. Whatever your favourite sport there are no longer seasons which limit your gambling options, you can follow your sport all over the world and all year round. Take golf for example, most courses in northern Europe are probably not ready for tournament golf at the highest level but that does not mean that Irish fans of gambling on golf cannot follow their favourite sport, nor does it mean that the top players are idle. World number one Rory McIlroy may not yet have played in Europe or America this year, but the European tour now covers almost every country in the world where golf is played and he is on a roll. Northern Ireland’s favourite golfer will start his warm up to the first Major of the year at Augusta in April by playing his first PGA tournament of the year in Florida at the Cadillac Championship on the 5th March. His form is such that he comes to this tournament on the back of seven consecutive top two finishes on the European Tour, a huge achievement in the ultra-competitive professional golf arena. There is no doubt that golf gambling enthusiasts will probably find McIlroy favourite to win almost every tournament he enters barring a sudden slump in form. Every sports gambling enthusiast who enjoys gambling on golf will know of course that there are many potential winners in the field of every golf tournament such is the competitive nature of the sport, but McIlroy is as good a banker as any player in world golf at the moment and we’re sure Irish golf gambling fans will follow him closely throughout the year.
