BetJamaica Caters To Golf Betting Fans Press Release
The West Coast Swing started in Hawaii marking the beginning of the 2005 PGA Tour and while the money wagered online for golf betting may not compare football, BetJamaica General Manager, Scotty Johnson know with certainty that golf betting has its own special niche. "Golf is a natural for bettors," commented Johnson in a recent interview, "if you think about it, the number of times a golfer hears 'I'll bet you can make that putt' should already let you know that golf has its place".
To promote the 2005 PGA Tour events which offer match-ups, odds to win, futures and host of golf betting propositions, Johnson and the BetJamaica marketing team decided against the traditional flashing banners and instead launched a special section on their website entitled "The Game of Golf". While the special section allows golf betting fans to get the details of the full 2005 tour, the most popular feature is a rather lengthy diatribe of the truisms that make golf the purest of sports.
"I wish I could say we can up with all of this but that's really not how it happened," explained Johnson. "I had received one of those emails from a friend that just circulates the Internet with abandon. Everyone I showed it to loved it, so we thought we'd make something more of this gift we had received".
Comparing golf to others sports, the reader is remind of such truisms as:
--Professional golfers are paid in direct proportion to how well they play.
--In their prime, Palmer, Norman, and other stars, would shake your hand and say they were happy to meet you. In his prime Jose Canseco wore T-shirts that read "Leave Me Alone."
--Golf is an honorable game, with the overwhelming majority of players being honorable people who don't need referees.
--Golf doesn't have free agency
The view the complete list of truisms and for all your golf betting needs, visit BetJamaica and look for the PGA logo featured on the home page. Readers can also download a high-quality print of The Game of Golf, suitable for framing or at the very least, posting at your local pro shop. "We're getting hundreds of people everyday downloading the poster," said Johnson, "so I guess it just demonstrates that golf has its special place with bettors."
