Golf Data Guide
This Golf Data Guide outlines SportsDataIO's coverage of Golf tournaments, projections, and odds. Our Golf API documentation can be found here.
SportsDataIO offers robust coverage for PGA stroke play tournament formats. In stroke play tournaments, clients can receive full leaderboard stats, projections, and odds.
Our match play and stableford tournament coverage works differently. We do not provide leaderboard stats from match play and stableford format tournaments.
Below is the list of the 2024 PGA WGC/Match Play and Stableford Tournaments
April 25-28: Zurich Classic of New Orleans
July 18-21: Barracuda Championship
September 26-29: The Presidents Cup
SportsDataIO provides Golf projections for all PGA stroke play tournaments only. Projections for the tournament are served for the entire tournament and not on a round-by-round basis. Projections are typically available 3 days before the first round is scheduled to begin.
Projections can be accessed here.
Full odds coverage is provided for stroke play format tournaments only. All other tournament formats such as match play and stableford will either provide limited or no odds coverage. The Schedule by Season endpoint will show the expected odds coverage for each tournament.
The types of odds that are covered consist of Tournament Prop, Golfer Prop, Nationality Prop, Matchup Prop (2 Golfers), SixShooter Prop (6 Golfers), and Group Prop (3-5 Golfers). Full Golf odds coverage is provided by DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, BetMGM, and Caesars sportsbooks.
Partial Golf odds coverage (Tournament Winner) is provided by several other sportsbooks in addition to DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, BetMGM, and Caesars. Here you can see the full list of active sportsbooks for Golf.
Golf tournaments with limited odds coverage will have reduced market coverage. You can use the Betting Markets by TournamentID endpoint the week leading up to the tournament to see which markets are available for a tournament with limited odds coverage.
