The match will then automatically go to a playoff which is played with a next hole wins format, similar to a golden goal in football.
The competing players will then play against one another with the scores essentially wiped and whoever takes the lowest number of shots on the next hole is the tournament winner.
However, in the event of the competing players all scoring the same, then a second hole will be played in the same format and so on until a winner has been declared.
If a tournament goes to a playoff, then the winner market will only incorporate the competing players, and the odds will be dramatically reduced.
If a punter has made an outright winner bet prior to the tournament and that player wins by way of a playoff, the bet will still be deemed a winning bet, unlike in football, in which outright match winner bets only incorporates 90 minutes of play and not extra-time and penalties.
In golf, this would mean that if you had bet on Tiger Woods to win the Masters and he wins it by beating Phil Mickelson on the first hole of the playoff, you would still receive your pay-out from your chosen sportsbook.
The longest Next Hole Winner sudden death playoff in the history of the PGA Tour lasted 11 holes.
Cary Middlecoff and Lloyd Mangrum couldn’t be separated at the 1949 Motor City Open for 11 holes in the playoff. Remarkably, bad light ended play and the two players were deemed co-champions.
