This week sees the 98th USPGA Championship taking place at Baltusrol Golf Club, New Jersey west of New York. To celebrate the start of the fourth and final major of the year in golf, Betstars USPGA OfferBetStars have decided to up the ante for their punters by offering them a little golfing-themed bonus this week.

Remember, you can join BetStars today and get a great sign up offer. Get the latest BetStars bonus codes and any other information you need from the previous link to enable you to sign up and tee off with a fantastic golfing offer.


Although BetStars have this down as the 100th edition of the tournament, it is actually the 98th time the event has been contested, but we’ll forgive them that little oversight given that they are offering a fantastic offer on the event for all sports betting fans.

Simply place a pre-tournament outright winner bet on any player at the PGA Championship and if instead of winning your chosen player finishes 2nd or 3rd in the event (including ties), then the site will refund you with a free bet to the same value. Maximum refund available is £25 for a £25 bet.

You can receive this offer on both win selections and each way bets on the outright winner market for the tournament, although for each way bet, only the win part of the bet will be refunded as part of the offer.  Bets can be placed from midnight on the 25th July to 10:00 GMT on July 28th to qualify for the offer.

If you receive your free bet as part of the offer then you have seven days within which to use your free bet on any BetStars betting market. After the seven days have expired, if your free bet is not used, then it will expire.

You can use your Free Bet received on single bets only and you cannot use the Spin and Bet feature with any free bet as part of the offer. Qualifying bets must be of odds of 1/2 or greater, but given the market you are betting on, that will not be an issue.

Who should I look at to back for this offer?

Of course, you don’t place a bet with an eye on losing to take advantage of the offer, so you still want to pick a golfer who stands a great chance of performing well at Baltusrol. The course is 7,462 Betstars USPGA Oddsyards long and features a punishing closing three holes of a 230 yard par 3, a 650 yard par 5 and a 553 par five to finish.

This means that longer hitters are likely to find the course more to their liking and there is no longer hitter in better form at the moment than the current US Open Champion, Dustin Johnson.  He is currently the 8/1 favourite with BetStars to win the event and it is not surprising given his outstanding run of form over the last two months.

Another player you cannot overlook is Rory McIlroy. Although McIlroy’s form has been erratic, the Irishman has won this event in the past (back in 2012 and 2014) and he is another player who could conceivably find the length of this course not too much of a problem.  Much will depend on how Rory copes with the greens. If he can find his putting stroke, he could well go close here.

Last years winner also cannot be discounted as World Number 1 Jason Day enters the competition as another golfer in decent form. While perhaps not as long as Johnson or McIlroy, Day’s long iron accuracy could well be a key factor here, especially on greens that will be testing for the golfers.  He won this event last year and should be there or thereabouts again.

Other players of note that are worth a look are the new British Open Champion Henrik Stenson, who is a 15/1 shot with BetStars. Phil Mickelson, who pushed Stenson so hard at Troon, is a 22/1 shot but this is a course that won’t unduly suit the supremely talented left hander.

A good outside bet could be Bubba Watson (35/1), his prodigious length from the tee means that if he can avoid some of the silly mistakes that littered his rounds at Troon a couple of weeks ago, he could well be in the mix come Sunday night.
