On-site Betting To Occur On PGA Tour Next Year

October 28, 2019

Jay Monahan, Commissioner of the PGA Tour, has told AFP there is a plan for on-site betting to be allowed at events from next year.

Monahan said: “You’ll start to see product in the market place next year. It’s all about engagement. When done right, it gives fans the opportunity to engage with your sport over a longer period of time and have more interest in what’s happening across the entire player field.”

The betting markets that will be introduced, however, was not something covered. That will be a key source of intrigue to both supporters and those in the golf world as to what could be offered by the Tour with this product, with corruption always a wary topic in the sports world.

“We’ve done a ton of work to make certain that that’s the position we’re in. I think when we come forward, you’ll see that we’ve taken significant steps to address that. We’re going to participate in a thoughtful way and I’m really comfortable with that,” the commissioner added.

“It’s legalised in a lot of international markets and we’ve put the right systems in place, both in terms of an integrity programme and monitoring activity. As it is becoming legalised by state in the US, you can either participate or not, and we feel smarter to be participating.”
