The US PGA Championship 2019 gets underway on Thursday and you don’t want to miss this William Hill offer! Simply bet £10.00 on the Tournament Winner market and William Hill will give us a £10.00 free bet every time our player makes an Eagle. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £6.75 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Qualifying bets must be placed between 00:01 on Monday 13th May 2019 and 11:45 (tee-off) on Thursday 16th May 2019.
  • We must place a £10.00 Win or £5.00 Each Way bet on the Tournament Winner market for the US PGA Championship 2019.
  • We’ll receive a £10.00 free bet every time our selected player makes an Eagle.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

It’s entirely up to you who you place your qualifying bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Brooks Koepka.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…

Place £10.00 on Brooks Koepka @ 12.00 = Potential profit of £110.00

Lay £8.90 on Brooks Koepka @ 13.50 = Potential liability of £111.25


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Brooks Koepka wins+£110.00-£111.25£1.25 loss
Brooks Koepka doesn't win-£10.00+£8.72£1.28 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £1.28 in qualifying for our potential free bets.

Free Bets:

We’ll receive a £10.00 free bet every time our player makes an Eagle. For those of you that aren’t familiar with scoring in golf, an Eagle is made when a player completes a hole in two shots less than par.

Eagles are a rarity in golf, so we shouldn’t expect any player to make more than one throughout the Championship. If Brooks Koepka makes an Eagle, we’ll receive a £10.00 free bet.

Free bets will be credited the following day and will be valid for 4 days. Free bet stakes will not be included in any returns.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £10.00 free bet, so £8.00. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £1.25, this gives us a potential profit of £6.75 on this William Hill offer!

* Brooks Koepka won the tournament but failed to make an Eagle, resulting in a loss of £1.25 on this William Hill offer. *

    I am having a go at this, but what is the best way to find out if Rory has had an eagle or 2?
