How to analyze tournaments
It is necessary to carefully study four important nuances for right betting.
In many individual sports, the current physical form and endurance make up a strong competition for experience. In golf, only experience and strong psychological qualities come out on top. There is no need to run, fight, even an assistant carries a bag with clubs, and the golf player himself moves calmly along the field with a step. Therefore, when choosing a bet, figure out how long the selected participant has been performing, what achievements he has managed to achieve.
You should definitely study the history of recent performances. These are the results of an Australian golf player in extreme tournaments. If there is a plus in the first column, then such a performance can be called unsuccessful.
This is a detailed statistics of his participation in the extreme competition. Here you can see a report on each hole, where the light and dark orange color shows that the athlete made more than the required number of strokes and received plus 1-2 points. The light and dark blue colors indicate that the Australian needed fewer attempts to drive the ball into the golf hole. According to these statistics, it is clear how the athlete added well during the draw and managed to get into the minus.
Difficulties arise during a strong gusty wind, where players have to immediately adapt to it, and not everyone is able to do this. After all, a strong wind can change the trajectory of the golf ball and take it into a heavy zone of the golf field.

The average distance of the ball flight after hitting it by an athlete. This indicator indicates the strength of the golfer’s stroke, which is especially important when passing a certain stage or the entire competition on an easy field without a large number of obstacles.
Marks the accuracy as a percentage when the field is full of obstacles (reservoirs, mud, sand surfaces, etc.), when it is necessary to get into the working area, from which it is easy to strike the next blow, this is an extremely important parameter.
Greens in Regulation.
For how many attempts it turns out to get into a convenient zone in front of the hole. This golf area is called “green”.
The number of putts – attempts made on the green, the so-called finishing stroke. This indicator also characterizes the level of skill of a golfer and his psychological stability.
