    Getting in on Saturday. Can I still bet on the Open? I've never bet on golf before so I have no idea how that would work since it will already be started.

    Thanks for any insight.

    Thanks shifter. I'll check out the sports books and see what they've got to offer.

    Some books might offer individual player versus player head to head matchups for the final round.

    All bookies in Britain offer each way betting on golf.
    For example Tiger Woods is 10-1, $100 each way costs you $200.
    You get $100 win at 10-1 and $100 for Tiger to finish in the top 5 at 1/4 of the odds, in this case 5-2.(some bookies you can get top 6)

    Every time I go to Vegas it is win only on the outrights.
    Does any sports book offer each way betting, this is a great bet and would generate a lot more money in bets for the sportsbooks.
