SJP Golf Tips is a long standing golf tipping service which is operated by professional golfer, Stuart Priestly and tipster group Sports Betting Stars. It has generated a pretty consistent level of profit for subscribers since launching.
Introduction to SJP Golf Tips
I have quite openly been trying to find a decent golf tipster service for some time now. There have been some interesting new launches, however by and large there aren’t many services that are well established on the market and are actually capable of delivering decent results.
Enter Stuart Priestly and his golf tipster service, SJP Golf Tips. Everything that I have seen relating to the service has been positive and the results are very frankly, very good. Of course, SJP Golf Tips is a golf tipster service and by its nature this comes with ups and downs.
It is all about how these are managed and Stuart Priestly seems to really excel here. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the service and see whether or not SJP Golf Tips will finally break the rather questionable record for golf tipster services.
What Does SJP Golf Tips Offer?
There is a lot of ground to cover in terms of what is offered here so I want to rather blunt and dive right in. Those of you who are looking for a daily tipster service should look elsewhere. As is the case with a lot of golf tipsters, SJP Golf Tips operates on a much slower pace. One of the key ways in which this takes shape is the fact that selections are only issued once per week.
This takes place on a Wednesday with Stuart Priestly sending his tips out directly to subscribers via email. Emails are sent out in the morning (around 10am) which gives you plenty of time to place bets for the next day.
In terms of the bets themselves, there are typically just 7 or 8 per week and variety is very much the name of the game when it comes to SJP Golf Tips.
Stuart Priestly says that he advises a “large variety of bet types through the year”. Honestly, having seen a list of just some of the bet types involved, there are more than I would care to list. Fortunately, none of it is ever so complicated that SJP Golf Tips feels out of reach to those who don’t follow the sport.
Stuart Priestly has a decent staking plan in place for SJP Golf Tips which honestly, is a necessity. Some of the longer term bets are very high odds and backing them to large stakes seems like a sure fire way to eat into your betting bank (even if this is recommended to be a very healthy 200 points).
What this means is that you will be staking anywhere from 0.5 points all the way up to 4 points on a given bet. I should however point out that the extremities of this aren’t a common event and there will never be advice to stake more than 25 points on a given week.
Unfortunately, there is no strike rate for SJP Golf Tips. Typically speaking, I would say that this is somewhat problematic but the nature of golf tipping means that how often you win doesn’t matter quite as much and a look at some of the wins that have come in demonstrate it as well.
The fact is that Stuart Priestly does not seem to be concerned with winning often, as much as consistently generating profit.
How Does SJP Golf Tips Work?
Stuart Priestly has years as a professional golfer (a rare claim which can be verified) and as such, Sports Betting Stars say that he is “perfectly positioned to being you his pro tipster service”. It is clear that this professional capacity is linked to a much wider interest in the sport and honestly, the numbers back this up.
Honestly, it is a little disappointing that we don’t get a little more information in terms of a selection process. The fact that SJP Golf Tips is operated by a verifiable pro golfer as well as the results to date go a long way to mitigating this in this case.
What is the Initial Investment?
There are three different options if you want to subscribe to SJP Golf Tips. The first of these is a monthly option which is priced at £29.99 per month. Alternatively, you can sign up on a quarterly basis at a price of £79.99.
Finally, you can opt to sign up for a full year at a cost of £299.99. It is worth pointing out that all of these options come with a 14 day trial which is priced at just £1. There is also mention of a 14 day money back guarantee, however there is nothing that specifies whether this only applies to the trial period or your full subscription cost.
What is the Rate of Return?
The numbers surrounding SJP Golf Tips are, frankly, very impressive. Since January 2015, Stuart Priestly has guided the service to a points profit of 1110.31 points.
Here is what the website states:
This averages out at 27.5 points per month which is honestly one of the best results I have seen from a tipster for some time. Especially one that can report it with any degree of consistency. Standing at 38%, this high standard of result also applies to the ROI.
Conclusion on SJP Golf Tips
I have mentioned a few times in this article that the search for a decent golf tipster service has been an elusive one, but I feel like it can be put to rest a little bit now. This is because in all the years I have been doing this, I can’t immediately recall any golf tipster service which has performed as well as SJP Golf Tips.
Believe me, it is not for a lack of looking either. Key to this is the consistency. Stuart Priestly has been running SJP Golf Tips for approaching 3 years and the results have a strong upward trend.
Don’t get me wrong, SJP Golf Tips does have some issues that could be pointed out (and I will in the name of balance and fairness as you should know exactly what to expect) but I believe that most of this is down to the nature of golf tipsters. For example, over the last 12 months, SJP Golf Tips has arguably hit a bit of a plateau.
In June last year, the profit stood at 1109.78 points. At the time of writing this, the profit stands at just 1110.31 points.
This has historically been the case however (although not for quite so long) but at some point, there have been big wins to increase the profit and I can see this happening in the future. As I highlighted earlier, this is also in part down to how golf tipping works. There are a lot of long shot bets in terms of placing in tournaments etc. which win big when they do, but it is very much a case of when.
The fact of the matter is however that this will apply to any golf service and whilst you should keep the above in mind, you are unlikely to escape this. It goes without saying that of course I recommend SJP Golf Tips. If you are looking for a golf tipster service, then this is the one that I would certainly be considering.
