Hole In One – Free Bets For Everyone Offer

To qualify for this offer, you need to head on over to the promotion with this name on the BetMGM Sportsbook site. Once there, you will see details of the promotion and a brown Opt In button.

Ensure you are logged into your account and then click the Opt In button to participate in the offer.

Once you have opted in, you should then click on the Bet Now button underneath to take yourself to the section that offers all the latest The Players Championship betting markets.

Once there, you need to place a pre-game or live betting wager of at least $17 on the tournament.

You can do this any time between now and the final day of the tournament (Sunday 13th March), however placing the bet as early as possible will give you more chance to earn the bonus.

Once your bet is placed then regardless of whether the bet you place wins or loses, if any golfer scores a hole in one in the tournament after the time you placed your bet, then you will receive a Free Bet bonus of $17.

You can use this free bet on any golf market and the bet must be used within seven days and it should be in your account within 24-hours of the hole in one taking place.

Why $17? What’s The Significance?

You may be wondering why BetMGM have decided that $17 is the amount you need to trigger the bonus and it is also the amount you will win as a free bet if a hole in one is achieved in the tournament after your bet is placed.

Well, The Players Championship is played at the famous TPC Sawgrass course, one that is familiar to golfers all over the world, and especially to golfers that have played many different versions of Tiger Woods PGA Tour golf on their consoles over the years.

Why is TPC Sawgrass so famous? Well, chiefly because of the 17th hole. A famous short par 3 hole that measures just over 135 yards but which is almost completely surrounded by water. Now known as simply the “Island Green”.

For the professional golfers, such a shot is fraught with danger, especially if the wind picks up as the ball can only end up either on the green, in the hole, in the bunker, on the fringe, or if you are exceptionally fortunate, on the thin spit of land that connects the green to the land.

If you fail to find any of those, then there is one outcome, your ball is in the water, alongside the 100,000 balls that are estimated to be lost in the lake at 17 each year. (Not all from this tournament, I hasten to add).

As such, the 17th hole at Sawgrass has become one of the most recognisable and famous holes in all of golf and as such, it is somewhat fitting this is celebrated through this offer!

Remember, the earlier you get your bet on, the more chance you have of one golfer landing a hole in one and giving you that $17 free bet, so what are you waiting for? Tee off now and head off to the promotion page!

And remember, last year, I correctly predicted Justin Thomas to win the event at +2000!
