We are just a couple of days away now from the start of the delayed 2020 Ryder Cup contest, which will be held at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. The ultra-strong Team USA will be out to wrestle the trophy from the grasp of Team Europe, who won the trophy back in 2018.
And to celebrate the start of this golfing extravaganza, BetMGM Sportsbook has come up with a fantastic Ryder Cup bonus that is sure to be a hit with those of us supporting Team USA!
It is the new Bet $100, Get $5 For Every Team USA Match Win offer, the key details of which we have outlined below.
Authorized by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. You must be 21+ years old and physically located in Pennsylvania to wager. Gambling Problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER
To qualify for this offer you need to log in to your BetMGM Sportsbook account, head on over to the promotions page on the site and then find the Ryder Cup Get $5 For Every Match Won By Team USA offer.
Click on that and then click on the Opt In button to activate the bonus on your account.
Once you have done that, you can then head on over to the Ryder Cup betting section on the site and place your qualifying bet.
Your qualifying bet can be made on any pre-game or In Play betting market that is of odds of -200 or greater and your stake needs to be worth $100 or greater in value on the qualifying bet.
Once your bet has been made (and only your first qualifying bet will be eligible for the promotion), then you will activate the bonus on your account.
This means that every time Team USA wins a whole point in any of the Foursomes, Fourballs or Singles Matchplay contests across the tournament, you will receive a $5 Free Bet for each point earned by Team USA.
So, if Team USA were to hit the winning 14.5 points mark in the tournament and you had your qualifying bet placed from before the tournament began, then you would receive $70 worth of Free Bets from the offer.
Your Free Bets are paid out to you regardless of whether your qualifying bet is a winner or a loser and of course, the more points that Team USA collect in the tournament, the more Free Bets you will receive!
Ryder Cup Format & Teams
The Ryder Cup starts on Thursday with a presentation of both teams, speeches by the captains and also the announcement of the first morning’s pairings for the foursomes.
Friday and Saturday both follow the same pattern with four foursomes matches held in the morning, followed by four fourball games in the afternoon. That makes eight points available to be won each day by the teams.
Then on Sunday, there are twelve individual matches between all players on the teams with a point up for grabs for the winner of each game.
With 28 points in total available, a team needs 14.5 points or more to win the trophy.
Steve Stricker’s United States team features eight of the world’s top ten ranked golfers, plus the remaining four players are ranked 21st or higher in those rankings. However, the US Team does lack experience of the tournament when compared to Team Europe.
- Captain – Steve Stricker
- Players – Collin Morikawa, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Justin Spieth, Daniel Berger, Harris English and Scottie Scheffler.
So why not nail your colors to the US Flag by taking advantage of this promotion and secure yourself a free $5 bet for every point Team USA collects in this famous and dramatic tournament?
