Place your US PGA Championship bets at Coral and get paid on each way down to 10 places with this enhanced offer!
The final major of the golf year is here and you can get paid on each way bets at the US PGA Championship to 10 places at Coral!
KEY TERMS: 18+. UK+IRE only. Applies to bets placed on the outright market of 2018 US PGA Championship from 8am Friday 03/08/2018. Each-way bets paid to 10 Places at 1/5 place odds. T&Cs Apply.
With so much strength in depth in the men’s game right now, picking the winner at Bellerive is tough. There are a huge 12 golfers at the top of the betting priced at odds of between 8/1 and 30/1.
All of those big guns will fancy their chances but even further down the betting there are a raft of players who could at the very least be contending on Sunday. Especially if by “contending”, you mean pushing for a place in the top 10!
This amazing Coral offer is the perfect way to improve your odds of beating the bookies at this year’s US PGA Championship. Instead of getting paid on your each way bets if your pick makes the top five, Coral are paying to double those places, all the way down to 10th!

How to claim Coral’s US PGA Championship enhanced each way to 10 places offer
Some enhanced each way promotions are complicated but this one really is simple. Whilst some only pay cash for certain places and pay free bets for lower finishes, the Coral US PGA Championship offer is really straightforward.
- As with all Coral offers, you must be aged 18 or over
- 10 places each way is valid only for UK or Irish Coral customers
- Offer is available to new and existing customers
- Each way to 10 places only applies to bets placed on the outright market of the 2018 US PGA Championship after 8am on Friday 3rd August 2018
- Each way bets are paid at 1/5 of the standard odds
- As with standard each way golf bets, dead heat rules apply in the event of ties
- Full terms for this 10 places offer are available at Coral under the “Offers” tab
It’s worth noting that Coral’s odds for many – but not all – of the players at the US PGA Championship are not the very best around. However, if you’re getting paid down to 10 places for an each way bet, we reckon that’s very understandable.
Your odds of landing a winner are simply so much better. Some rivals are paying enhanced each way to six, seven and some even eight. Some are paying each way bets at 1/4, not 1/5 the odds. However, no top class bookie can get near Coral’s 10 places! And with that making you so much more likely to land a winner, it’s Coral all the way for us at this year’s US PGA Championship!

Golf Tips for US PGA Championship, Plus Betting Offers and Free Bets
The US PGA Championship brings golf’s major season to a close this week. We have a fitting host for the 100th edition of the tournament in Bellerive Country Club. Set in St. Louis, Missouri, Bellerive is an historic venue that has already hosted two major championships and is sure to be beautifully prepared for what looks to be the most competitive field of the year.

US PGA Championship Betting Tips and Preview
The US PGA Championship is hosted by the PGA of America. As well as reserving 20 places in the field for club professionals to qualify, the PGA of America always set the course up to provide as fair a test of golf as possible. That certainly looks to be the case at Bellerive Country Club which pose many different challenges.
At 7,300 yards, this par 70 layout clearly demands a certain amount of power. Few, if any, players will reach the two par fives in two shots while there are a host of par fours playing over 450 yards. The world’s best golfers are used to playing long courses but Bellerive will also test their accuracy and shot making. Penal rough will punish tee shots that stray too far from the fairways and it’s going to take top quality iron shots to get the ball close to some very tricky pin positions.
In many ways, the style of golf required to win at Bellerive is similar to that required at Firestone Country Club, host of last week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational. Bridgestone champion, Justin Thomas (14/1 with Ladbrokes) must therefore be licking his lips at the prospect of making a successful defence of his US PGA Championship.
Thomas displayed the same combination of powerful drives, towering irons and solid play on the greens during each of his nine professional wins. That’s very much a recipe for success at Bellerive. It’s never easy to win two weeks on the bounce or to defend a major championship but there anybody who has any doubts about Thomas’ stomach for the fight need only look at the way he battled to win on Sunday.
The US PGA Championship has seen plenty of players win their first major over the years and there are many quality players in with a chance of making their breakthrough this week. Bryson DeChambeau (66/1 with Betfred) and Thorbjorn Olesen (100/1 with Ladbrokes) are two tempting options but the each way pick goes to Alex Noren.
With some very big wins already under his belt, Noren would be no shock winner at Bellerive but his price does look a little inflated at 50/1 with Betfair. He’s not one of the biggest hitters in the game but has all the necessary power to cope with even the longest holes at Bellerive and his shot making will set up plenty of birdie chances. Noren is a deadly putter at his best so expect him to challenge if he gets things going on the greens.

What are Dead Heat Rules?
Dead heat rules apply when more than one selection ties for a win or place and cannot be separated. For example, if you bet on a horse and it wins by a photo finish, it wins and the other horse loses. However, sometimes even a photo cannot determine the winner and in this case the race is a dead heat. In effect, both horses half win and half lose and that is how the bookies treat your bet.
Half your stake is a loser and half your stake is a winner. That means that a £10 bet at 2/1 on a horse that dead heats with one horse pays £15. £5 at 2/1 wins and £5 at 2/1 loses. Dead heats can happen in a number of sports but are very common in golf and each way bets.
Dead Heats and Each Way Golf Bets
If two golfers tie at the top of the leaderboard there is almost always a play-off. This determines who wins and who loses. However, if several golfers tie for fourth place, there is no play-off and they simply finish “tied” or, in bookie parlance, in a dead heat.
Let us assume that you place an each way bet with Coral under this amazing 10 places each way offer. If your golfer finishes tied 5th you would probably expect to get your full each way payment. For example, if you backed someone at 100/1, £10 each way, the expected returns would be a very tidy £210.
Now, if your pick was tied fifth with up to six other players, that would indeed be your return. The next player on the leaderboard would be 11th, so effectively all of your bet was in the top 10 that applies for this offer.
Things get more complex, however, if your golfer was tied with, say seven people. That can quite easily happen in golf but, to simplify the issue, let’s imagine your player was tied ninth but with three golfers. Effectively he has finished partly tied ninth, part 10th and part 11th, with the next player on the leaderboard 12th.
This means that 2/3 of your stake will pay out as a winner but 1/3 will lose. In the event of the previously mentioned £10 e/w bet at 100/1, the returns are now no longer £210 but just £140.
Are Dead Heat Rules Fair?
Dead heat rules can seem unfair, especially if you weren’t expecting them. However, they are the only fair way to pay such a bet and the same method is used by all betting sites. This isn’t a Coral rule, but a rule that ALL bookies use.
Imagine if four horses finished in a dead heat for first. The punters backing each horse would no doubt want to be paid in full, claiming their horse had won the race. However, on the other side of the equation, could the bookie not argue that actually no horse won as they all tied? Much as you want your winnings, they would argue that as there was no winner they don’t need to pay.
Dead heat rules settle this issue in a way that is fair to all. As long as you understand these rules when you place your bet, there is nothing to worry about. Moroever, the vast majority of bets won’t ever be affected by this.
