A Lesson on the Golf Hustle, a Gambling Game – Sticks

A little known fact outside of the golfing world is that more than $10 Billion a year is gambled on golf right here in the United States alone. The only thing bigger is the Super Bowl and the Final Four combined!

This is what my golf lessons are all about – to teach you the different gambling games, the science of betting, strategy, hustling, attitude and more.

Hustling at golf is a lot easier than you think. Learning the games involved in any golf hustle or competition is well worth the few minutes it takes to go over the rules. Having the rules down before hand is key because if you are the expert and explainer of the rules, you’ll start the round with an edge.

This is what hustling golf is all about – betting with an edge. For fun and money, people who play golf like to make things interesting either by wagering money, a soft drink at the end of the round or just plain bragging rights and “pick-up sticks” or “sticks” is a great and fun game to play the next time you get out there on the course.

Sticks is a lot of fun and very entertaining. The game is played match play and for each hole a player loses, he takes one club in the winner’s bag out of play.

The loser of each hole also can reclaim a club taken out of his/her bag on previous holes. Decide beforehand if putters are in play or not. Usually, players agree to keep the putters out of it and leave them alone as they are integral to the game but including them does add to the fun.

Personally, putting with a wedge or a 2-Iron can be easy if you practice for just a few minutes before your next round so I suggest including the putter after just a few drills with your putting.

In fact, after breaking their putters during a round, Fuzzy Zoeller used his wedge and Ben Crenshaw used his 2-Iron on separate occasions. Therefore, if you practice with a 2-Iron or wedge and your opponent does not, you’ll be at a major advantage if you include the putter – again betting with an edge.

Time for a little golf hustle strategy – DO NOT immediately grab the driver from your opponent’s bag as most people do. It is the worst club to take away, period. Most players would actually do better without their driver, using their 3-Wood or 2-Iron to tee off with, leaving them 220 yards in the middle of the fairway instead of 260 yards deep into the rough.

If you know your opponent’s weaknesses before hand, you’ll be much better prepared to choose as you’ve already learned the lessons as to what to choose first.

The best club to take first is the sand wedge, hands down. A lot of players rely on the sand wedge for nearly every shot within 100 yards. It is nearly impossible to get up from any greenside bunkers without that club.

However, look to see if the player carries a lob wedge. If they do, grab that first and then the sand wedge. Clearly, if a player carries a lobber, they rely on that and that’s what The Golf Hustler is all about – betting with an edge.

Although a silly golf game for sure, this is an excellent game to start wagering for fun or profit for beginners. You’ll be forced to create shots, punching a 4-Iron to make it act like a 6-Iron or hitting a running hook to hit a 6-Iron as far as a 4-Iron, etc.

Either way, if you’re prepared, you’ll be in position to win a lot of money (or bragging rights).

Also, the opportunity for “proposition bets” is abundant. If you’ve won several holes in a row, make the bet that you can hit it closer to the pin with your 5-Iron from 60 yards out than your opponent who still has his lob wedge or anyplace else where you think you have an edge, or any similar shot – use your imagination!

As always, good luck, good hustling.

Lay Genius Review – Is It All Hype?

You may have heard that laying horses is an easy way to earn money and profit, however nothing can be further from the truth. Laying horses is much harder than most people say it is, and I know because I’ve personally lost thousands of dollars by laying horses. After testing various old and new lay betting systems, I’ve finally settled on the ones that consistently rake in profits.

Anyone can lay horses today, especially with the rise of online betting exchanges. However, betting exchanges are also the death traps for many new and inexperienced gamblers, who pour in their cash and watch it flow into the hands of experienced gamblers who have powerful betting systems that work. By playing the role of a bookmaker, many lay bettors are profiting wildly from these newbie gamblers today.

Lay Genius is one horse laying system that is relatively new in the market. Initially, I did not have the intention to buy it at first, because I already have a successful laying system that is working well for me. However, after hearing many fellow professional Betfair traders giving me good recommendations about Lay Genius, and with so much hype surrounding Lay Genius, I decided to buy Lay Genius to see it for myself.

After reviewing the guide and the spreadsheet inside Lay Genius, I was very excited. Lay Genius did not look like it is simply a system for selecting horses to lay. Lay Genius is an overall strategy and method to select the very bad favorites. At first glance, the Lay Genius’s concepts appear simple and seem profitable from my experience. Contained inside the guide is the Lay Genius system itself, along with its spreadsheet that requires you to regularly make inputs to it. The Lay Genius spreadsheet will then automatically tell you which horse is the best one to lay. If you are a beginner in betting exchange betting, there is a section that fully explains how betting exchanges work and the general concepts of odds, backing and laying. It is great for beginners but obviously not so much for me. Learn to get free £20 Betfair amount too, even though I knew that one too. 🙂 The added Bet-Tracker is really great though. Having a formulated spreadsheet to automatically keep track of your bets is a great time saver and find out whether what you are doing is working.

It was time to test out Lay Genius, and I decided to pit Lay Genius head-on against the most profitable laying system that I was currently using. After running both systems for a few weeks, the Lay Genius actually had a slightly higher strike rate than the current laying system that I was using! I cannot necessarily conclude that the Lay Genius is better though, since the amount of testing might be too little, and my current laying system has been working for years.

Take note that the Lay Genius does require some effort on your part to make it work, very little effort though. You will responsible to collect the information to input into system. Don’t worry as it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes of your day. Do remember to keep your expectations in check too. From my experience, there is no horse system with a 100% strike rate, do not believe those claims.

Finally, make sure that you have the discipline to follow the Lay Genius system too. Never lay based on your emotions and greed, even though you might think that you “would have” made more money if you have had put in more money. The Lay Genius is a mathematical system that has already calculated the maximum probabilities of winning and minimum probability of losing for you.

Currently priced at £46 ($88), Lay Genius is truly value for money and very well under-priced in my opinion, considering its real profit potential. In the past, below-average laying systems would appear on the internet and get all hyped up, claiming to be revolutionary and sell for £100 and above. Take one look at their membership areas and you will be absolutely disgusted. Do give Lay Genius a try if you are serious about creating an income on Betfair.
