When betting on golf, it’s always a good idea to study the previous winners to see who has taken home the most trophies on that particular course. In the case of the Singapore Masters, to be held at the Laguna National Golf & Country Club in March, the event has only been running for the last seven years, with no single golfer taking the title twice.

Therefore any of the previous winners, who have experienced and conquered this relatively new course, could be a good bet. They are Vijay Singh from Fiji in 2001, India-born Arjun Atwal in 2002, Lian-Wei Zhang of the People’s Republic of China in 2003, Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie in 2004, Englishman Nick Dougherty in 2005, local favourite and Singapore’s own Mardan Mamat in 2006 and Liang Wen-chong, also of the People’s Republic of China in 2007.

Although an accomplished golfer, Vijay Singh won the inaugural Singapore Masters on the Bukit Course at Singapore Island Country Club, before it was moved to Laguna National the following year.

You could also consult the European Tour and Asian Tour leaderboards to see which golfers taking part in the 2008 Singapore Masters are currently at the top of their game.

Apart from betting on the eventual winner of the tournament, a good Singapore Masters betting tip is to bet one golfer against another. Betting lines where golfers who are relatively fairly matched are pitted against each other are a becoming very popular. For instance, for a two-ball bet, you could back one partner against the other to shoot a lower score.

As the 2008 Singapore Masters golf tournament draws closer, it becomes possible to place more specific and interesting bets on an individual golfer’s performance. Some of these bets can include:

  • Top scores over 18, 36 and 72 holes
  • Whether or not the golfer makes the cut
  • Winning scores
  • Qualifying rounds
  • Head to head matchups

Betting on holes in one is an example of a high-risk, high-yield bet. You can also bet on your favourite golfer placing in the final top ten, or even the top five of the tournament.
