With the relatively small actual prizes for winning, it would be WAY too easy to fix

EDIT: I see someone beat me to it

I heard on the Upshot that coolbet.com had odds/betting on this year’s USDGC.

Pretty sure a disc golf sports book would get rinsed just liked they did with pool.

That is exactly why it would appeal to gamblers worldwide.

There is an entire gaming circuit in Malaysia and Thailand where they bet on things like kids soccer games in Quebec. No joke. The thing about it is that they aren't really betting on whether or not team A is better than team B, they are betting on whether the game is a fix or not. Everyone knows that the games are fixed in one direction, so the fun and skill is deciding which side has been leaned on.
