What Is A Match Bet In Golf?
A Supremacy bet on how one player will perform vs. another player over 72 holes. For example, we might quote Tiger Woods/Dustin Johnson at 4-6.5 - this means that we think Woods will be this many shots clear of Johnson at the end of the tournament.
If Woods finishes six-under par and Johnson finishes two-over par then the make-up would be 8 (6+2=8).
This market can have a negative make-up if the favourite (always quoted first) performs worse than his rival. For example, if Woods finished two-over par and Johnson finished on par the make-up would be -2 (0-2=-2).
