    Golf top 20 finish = free money?

    I recently noticed you can bet on top 20 or top 10 finishes at reasonable odds.

    For example some fav is priced like @8 to win the tournament but @1.6 to finish in top 20, isn't that like 90% sure to cash? That sounds like betting on "Novak Djokovic to finish in top 4 @1.6" except there are no such bets in tennis.

    So what I'm saying is - take the top 5 golfers, bet they'll finish in top 20, enjoy free cash. Or?

    top two favorites at the PGA Championship missed the cut

    the favorites often struggle

    previous majors had similar things, where like half the top favorites missed the cut

    If it were that easy, the books wouldn't exist.
