How can I use bet365’s Golf Live Tracker to help inform my bets?


It is always good news when a top-quality betting site produces a new feature for its customers to utilise when they bet on the site. Many of these features can be of invaluable help to punters when they make their bets, especially if they are in real-time and In Play. That is why the new Live Golf Tracker at bet365 Sport is so exciting.

With a host of exciting features aimed at making betting on golf and following the action in a tournament easier than ever, the new feature has already been a huge success at bet365 Sport since going live a short time ago.

If betting on the golf is something you enjoy then there is no doubt that the new Live Golf Tracker is going to make that task easier than ever for you to enjoy, especially if you are one of the growing number of people who enjoy betting In Play on a tournament. So to enjoy this new feature you need to be a member of the site and if you are not yet one, then the latest bet365 New Player Offer will help get you signed up quickly and easily.

Bet365 Sport Open Account Offer

Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365.

Min deposit £5. Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply.

Once a member of the site you gain access to all other bet365 sites in the group, including Casino and Poker sites, plus you can also access In Play betting and the extensive Live Streaming service (free with a credit balance account, or if you have made a bet in the previous 24-hour period) as well as a plethora of exciting sports promotions available across the year and of course, the new Live Golf Tracker too.

Unfortunately, bet365 Sport is not available everywhere and the United States is one place where you cannot sign up at the moment. However, if your state does allow sports betting then there are some other equally enticing alternatives. In Pennsylvania, the latest BetRivers Promo Code will get you signed up with that site quickly and easily with a good value starter offer. In Indiana, BetRivers offers a slightly different deal for people in this state using the BetRivers Affiliate Code “HOOSIERBONUS” to claim a fantastic starter bonus when you join.

Lastly, if you are resident in Nevada or New Jersey or other states that allow sports betting, then the latest DraftKings Online Sportsbook service is another option for you that offers good value golf betting.

Let’s now look at the functionality of the Live Golf Tracker feature at bet365 Sport and see what it offers, how that information can be useful to punters and also when and where you will be able to find it when the feature is available.

The new Bet365 Live Golf Tracker Feature

Designed to sit alongside Bet365 Sport’s extensive In Play betting service for the top golf tournaments in the world (and available across 80 tournaments this coming season on the US PGA and European Golf Tours, though not including the Majors), the Live Golf Tracker is a brand new feature at bet365 that offers a huge amount of information for punters, in real time, all at the click of a button.

While predominantly designed to be used alongside the In Play betting service at bet365, there is no doubt that the data generated by the app could be very useful to any golf punter who wants to place a bet on a tournament, or wants to follow the progress of a player over one or more tournaments with a view to placing a wager on them.

The Live Golf Tracker, as the name suggests, is only available at bet365 once a round in a tournament is underway. Once it is, the Live Golf Tracker option will be shown on the screen next to the In Play betting service, making it easy to flip between the two if you so wish.

With an extensive amount of data on all the players in each tournament, all updated in real time, the app promises to bring In Play golf betting into the 21st century, but there are also many more features available from within the Live Golf Tracker.

Main Live Golf Tracker Features and Tools

  • Get real time data on every shot, from every player competing in the tournament across 80 tournaments of the golfing year from both the US PGA and European Tours.
  • Data includes information on how long the previous shot was, how far the ball is from the hole, as well as details about where the ball is in relation to the hole and the current lie of the ball.
  • The ball is tracked from tee right into the hole. You can even see the position of the ball and golfer on an overview of the hole.
  • Players can use the course layout graphics to move between holes to view the current positions of different golfers across the course.
  • The data on each golfer is updated on real time including their score in the tournament. All scores are simplified thanks to a simple colour coded system with under par scores listed in green, par scores in white and over par scores in red.
  • Two Par 3 holes at each tournament will be streamed live to the app for players to view of they so wish. Three cameras are used to cover the action at each of these holes.
  • A search function allows users to locate groups and individual players in the tournament and then follow their progress within the feature. You can even ‘star’ a player or group to ensure their data remains at the top of the leaderboard to make it easier for you to follow.
  • The full course is displayed graphically on screen which users can easily access and you can also see the two holes being live streamed onto the app using this overview.

The Live Golf Tracker is an exciting new addition to bet365 Sport which will make betting on golf, especially In Play, much more enticing for the player thanks to the sheer amount of real time data that is available through the service. To try out the feature for yourself, remember that most golf tournaments start on Thursdays and play through to Sunday and it is over this period that the service will be available to use.
