You will have two times at which you can place a golf related bet or in fact any type of sports bet online, and most people tend to place their bets and wagers before those sporting events and sporting fixtures actually begin.
However, thanks to a new type of betting market you are going to be able to place a bet on a sporting event or sporting fixture when it has started and will be able to place bets on it right up until the last few minutes.
To do the latter you will need to sign up to one of the growing number of sports betting sites that allow you to place bets on an in-play betting market and those betting markets really are going to add an extra dimension to your sports betting.
In fact, what many people tend to do is to place a range of different bets and wagers on various different sporting events before they start in the usual way, but will then use the in-play betting markets to hedge many of those bets as by doing so with some skill you can lock in a guaranteed profit on many different betting opportunities.
The odds available on the in-play betting markets are updated in real time and will continually change for every available batting opportunity displayed on them as the sporting event or sporting fixture is in live play.
If you have never used an in-play sports betting platform before then maybe you should sign into you betting site account and launch one of the currently in-play live sporting events and then sit back and watch how the odds and betting opportunities available at that event unfolds.
By doing so you will soon discover how they work and operate and then when you are happy you know what is involved in placing a bet on them then you are of course free to do so. If you do have any questions what so ever in regards to how any betting sites in-play betting markets and betting platforms work, then you can also contact the customer support team available at those sites and they will only be too happy to help you.
In fact, you will often find a range of easy to follow guides and help files attached to all betting platforms so it may be worth your while to consult them to get any questions you may have answered!
