The Golf Guru is a sports betting tipster service which, like the name implies, is based around golf betting. The service is being offered by the Tipping Gurus platform.
Introduction to The Golfing Guru
There is something about golf betting that is quite different to betting on other sports. There are a lot of different reasons for this, but essentially it boils down to the way that bets are placed on the sport. When it comes to golf betting (and resultantly, tipster services) the focus is very clearly on value.
This means that you are specifically going out of your way to back longer shots to place or win, but when they win, they win big. The Golf Guru embodies this perfectly. Tipping Gurus make a number of claims that jump out about the service, but the wins are what are most impressive. Odds of 30.00, 90.00, and 50.00 are all examples of winning bets through The Golf Guru. So, does this guarantee massive profits? Let’s have a look.
What Does The Golf Guru Offer?
There are a lot of different way that horse racing tipster services can operate, however golf does seem to be more restrictive. This means that there are certain things that you can expect from most services and honestly, The Golf Guru doesn’t do anything to change this.
What this means is that selections are issued on a weekly basis. In this case, Tipping Gurus say that they issue selections every Wednesday morning with selections sent directly to The Golf Guru subscribers via email. There may also be selections issued after this depending on how the tournament progresses.
The bets themselves are not particularly varied however this doesn’t really surprise me too much. A lot of what you will be betting on with The Golf Guru are each way bets for an entire tournament whilst there are also intermittent bets which may look at different markets.
Naturally there are a variety of odds depending on the bet that you are placing as Tipping Gurus’s proofing demonstrates. I have already mentioned some of the much longer shots that have won, and those kinds of numbers are somewhat typical, however there are bets with The Golf Guru that cover much shorter odds as well.
Staking is something that has to be got right when it comes to betting on golf and The Golf Guru is no different. What this means is a lot of bets that are advised at anywhere from 0.5 points each way going up to 1 point each way. This approach definitely limits your liability and in my opinion, is a pretty reasonable approach from Tipping Gurus.
Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate for The Golf Guru. This is quite important to me as this kind of service often falls prey to a large number of losing bets, however Tipping Gurus’s proofing paints a different picture.
The strike rate for the service stands at 23.48%, a very commendable number for a service with average odds of 65.8. This isn’t the full picture however and you should also consider losing streaks with products like The Golf Guru. As of writing this, the proofing shows that the longest losing streak is 17 bets, however there are other examples of considerable losing streaks as well.
How Does The Golf Guru Work?
I have never tried to hide the fact that I strongly believe that you should be given some insight into what a selection process entails. I would never expect a tipster to give away their full service, but I do think that anybody who is considering one should at least have some kind of reasonable understanding of what exactly they are signing themselves up to.
Would you follow a tipster who made selections by throwing darts at a board, just because they had a good year? I wouldn’t. Unfortunately, with The Golf Guru, Tipping Gurus provide no information whatsoever and that is definitely disappointing.
Whilst this is frustrating, there is some proofing that goes part of the way to making up for this lack of insight.
Unfortunately, just 3 and a half months of proofing doesn’t really allow you to make a particularly informed decision. I want to discuss this a little later, but Tipping Gurus are selling The Golf Guru on the back of £500 per month in profits to just £10 stakes. Is this number sustainable? Based off the proofing I have seen, I don’t think that it is. As such, the proofing for The Golf Guru is not necessarily a reflection of what you can expect moving forward.
What is the Initial Investment?
Tipping Gurus offer just two options for those who wish to subscribe to The Golf Guru. The first of these is a monthly subscription which is priced at £20 per month. Alternatively, there is much better value to be had signing up on a quarterly basis which is priced at £40. There are also a few additional things of note here.
Firstly, Tipping Gurus offer a 14 day trial irrespective of which option you sign up for. This is priced at just £5. Secondly, The Golf Guru is sold through the Clickbank platform which means that there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place, a fact which is publicised in the sales material.
What is the Rate of Return?
The Golf Guru is being pushed off the back of some quite impressive returns. Tipping Gurus’s proofing demonstrates a profit of 147.81 points since January which is a very strong result indeed. This works out at around 42 points of profit per month (calculated off 3.5 months of operation).
As well as this impressive result, The Golf Guru also boasts an incredible ROI of 72.81%. This is a huge number and represents massive profit potential. With all of this having been said, there need to be some additional considerations for The Golf Guru that I want to explore below.
Conclusion on The Golfing Guru Service
At the time of writing, The Golf Guru is still a relatively new tipster service. As such, whilst there are some good results, there are very reasonable questions about how much stock to put in them. Especially because the nature of golf tipping means that there are very large wins, only for there to be periods where you do not see any substantial income.
This means that there are often tipster services launched off the back of a good run. Does that mean that The Golf Guru isn’t going to perform in the future? Absolutely not. It just means that the results to date are not necessarily a reason to start jumping into a purchase.
I feel like it is particularly important to keep all this in mind given that my next point is that The Golf Guru represents really strong value for money as it currently stands.
I find that most tipster services will typically look to charge you around £30-40 per month for their services. If Tipping Gurus can continue in the current vein with The Golf Guru, then there is no getting around the fact that this represents phenomenal value for money. That is very conditional for The Golf Guru though.
So, what does all of this mean for The Golf Guru?
The short answer to this is that right now, I wouldn’t really recommend the service. There is definitely potential, but potential doesn’t necessarily pay the bills as it were. With this in mind, I would be inclined to keep half an eye on The Golf Guru, maybe look back in 3 months or so, just so that you can see any wider patterns rather than the results that warrant a launch.
If it is still performing then, then I might be inclined to consider a purchase, but I don’t believe that it qualifies here and now.
