Where to Buy:

Ultimate Golf Tips

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A starting bank of 125-points is recommended on the website. However, the welcome email to new members refers to a 100-point starting bank. Given the nature of golf betting the higher bank is most appropriate. After three months of the review we have lost 123.10 points, so even with the 125-point bank there is insufficient funding to place the next bets. 

How Much Money Can I Make?

Although no specific claims are made, the website points to cumulative profits of £988.54 to £10 per point stakes since the service launched in the middle of April 2018. This equates to an average monthly profit of around 18 points.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

A few minutes on days when tips are received, usually Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the main tournament bets and then any additional in-tournament bets during the four competition days.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

PC, laptop or mobile device with Internet access and accounts with a range of online bookmakers.

Value for Money?

I will, as always, wait until the end of the review before reaching a conclusion on this. Golf tipsters are difficult to assess in a short-term trial due to the nature of their market. However, a loss of 123.1 points in three months, which is all bar a couple of points of the recommended starting bank, does not indicate value for money based on our review.

Quality of Customer Service?

James Walsh and his team at Tipsters Empire place customer service at the forefront of everything they do and aim to deliver a first-class experience to members. My dealings with them have always been conducted in a professional, courteous and timely fashion and so I expect the level of service for Ultimate Golf Tips to be at this level too.

Review

Ultimate Golf Tips joined Tipsters Empire in April this year and, according to the detailed results presented on the website, has generated just under 100-points of profit up to the end of the Ryder Cup in September.

The tips e-mails are detailed in their analysis, and selections cover both the European Tour and the US PGA Tour. Whilst the majority of bets are on the outright tournament winner markets, there are other markets used from time-to-time, most notably the first round 3-balls and tournament winner on the final day.

E-mails are generally received on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning for the main tournament tips, and then additional emails follow during the tournament for any of the in-tournament bets. A text is also sent to members advising them of the tips, and also contains a link to the members’ area of the website where they can read the full analysis of the selections. The SMS alert is the most instantaneous and gives enough information to place the bets, the email or the members’ area can then be used to read the full write ups.

The tips are usually staked as two-points to win or one-point each way.

The first month of the review included the Ryder Cup and a blank week in America before the Tour Championship, so the number of bets per week may not be typical. Looking back at the historic results though, around 10 bets per week would seem to be the norm.

Golf betting, more than most sports, requires significant patience and can endure long losing runs due to the prices at which selections are backed. The flip side is that it can also generate big wins when it does strike. Betting on golf will not be for everyone, and you should be comfortable with the profile before embarking on a golf betting journey.

Results – Month 1 (3rd September to 2nd October 2018)

Unfortunately, Ultimate Golf Tips started his review period with a loss of 32.25 points. The four winning bets coming in the first round 3-balls at the Omega European Masters and the singles matches in the Ryder Cup, where UGT managed three winners from four selections. Of the main tournament bets, only Xander Schauffle placed, this being in the BMW Championship on the PGA Tour at a very tasty 100/1.

The average odds across all selections in the period was 39.89 (not far short of 40/1). However, if we ignore the head-to-head and Ryder Cup bets, the average on the tournament winner markets is closer to 50/1.

As I noted above, golf betting can endure significant losing runs and unfortunately for UGT we have started the review in one of those dips. With plenty of action to come in October as the the new seasons get underway on both sides of the Atlantic we will be hoping for an upturn in fortune.

Results – Month 2 (3rd October to 2nd November 2018)

A blank month for UGT this time around, with Luke List dead heating for a place at The Safeway Open the only return from 37 bets. Overall the loss for the month was 64.6 points, and added to the loss brought forward from Month 1 we now have a cumulative deficit of 96.85 points.

The average odds of the selections this month was 49.52 (close to 50/1), which is very similar to last month when you exclude the Ryder Cup  head-to-heads.

With five weekends of action to come in the final month of the review there is still time for UGT to turn things around. Golf betting is quite unique amongst sports betting markets in the swings (pardon the pun!) between long losing runs and large wins that can ensue. My concern for the review period is that Month 3 provides a fast enough start to avoid busting the 125-point recommended starting bank.

Results – Month 3 (3rd November to 2nd December 2018)

The month started well enough with Bryson DeChambeau tipped as an outright win bet at 14/1 for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in the States. Unfortunately, this wasn’t backed up, and just a place, a dead-heat for a place at the World Cup of Golf and a win on the first round two-balls at the Hero World Challenge followed. All in all, there was a monthly loss of 26.25 points. Added to the losses brought forward from the previous months this gave us a cumulative loss of 123.1 points, which is all of the recommended starting bank of 125-points bar loose change.

Indeed, with insufficient funds to place the bets for the next tournaments this service ultimately ends our review “bankrupt”.

Summary at End of Month 1

Even a three-month trial can be too short to fully assess a golf tipster, and this first losing month in no way defines UGT. We will wait and see what Months 2 and 3 bring.

Summary at End of Month 2

Golf tipsters, more so than any others, are notoriously difficult to accurately assess over a short-term trial. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that UGT could wipe out the cumulative loss in one tournament in Month 3. We wait and see if that happens!

Summary at End of Month 3

Despite the acknowledged difficulties of assessing golf tipsters, more than any other tipster, over a short-term trial, we cannot get away from the fact that in the three months of the review we have seen the recommended starting bank wiped out. On this basis alone I am unable to provide any rating for Ultimate Golf Tips.
