The PGA Tour is primarily played in the USA and features the best players from around the world who compete throughout the season. Outside of the year's four Major Championships, The Players Championship serves as the PGA Tour's flagship event. The PGA Tour season culminates with The FedEx Cup play-offs, where the season's FedEx Cup Champion is crowned for the player who accumulates the most ranking points throughout the season. The winner scoops a cool $15 million in the process! Dustin Johnson is the current FedEx Cup champion.
The European Tour is played predominantly across Europe, with an Asian swing at the beginning of the calendar year. Wentworth, in Surrey plays host to the tour's flagship event, The BMW Championship, in September. The year's four majors are the biggest prizes in golf, the first of which is The Masters, (won by Hideki Matsuyama in 2021). Then, you can bet on the USPGA Championship where 50-year-old Phil Mickelson turned back the clock to win the 2021 USPGA Championship and his sixth Major Championship. The US Open is next, won by Bryson DeChambeau in 2020, whilst we host the year's final major, The Open Championship, this side of the pond. You can bet on every event from the PGA Tour and The European Tour as well as the year's four majors with Fitzdares.
The Ryder Cup is held every two years, whereby a European team takes on the a team representing the USA. The European team have dominated in recent history having won seven of the last ten renewals of the competition. The ladies compete in an equivalent competition, known as the Solheim Cup.
