The PGA Tour Limited the Number of Bets During “The Match”

Gambling and sports are going to become closer and closer in the coming years after the Supreme Court struck down the PASPA law letting individual states decide whether or not they want to allow sports betting. Apparently, the PGA Tour is not comfortable with this yet. Sources close to the Tiger and Phil match said the Tour limited the number of challenges between Woods and Mickelson even though the challenges did not violate PGA Tour policy because all of the proceeds went to each player’s charity and therefore aren’t considered “bets”. The PGA Tour may be changing their policies soon as they adapt to the new laws. Recently, they signed a deal to distribute the Tours’ scoring data for media usage and sports betting purposes.
