WINNING A BET ON THE FIRST TEE
▶ Most golf is fourball, so come to the first tee knowing who the best player is, and snag him as your partner. Follow that quickly with the bet you want to make. If you’re answering to the other team’s proposition, you’re already on the defensive. Also, be mindful of the serious edge to be had on side bets – the “junk.” If you and your partner are better ball-strikers than your foes, propose larger payoffs for units.
