## How does a place bet work in golf?

## What does each-way mean in golf betting?

An each-way bet in golf splits your bet into a "win" bet and a "place" bet. The fraction denotes how the odds will be cut for the place bet, and the numbers next to it indicate how many places will be paid out. In golf, it’s common to get 1/4th the outright odds if the golfer finishes in places 1-5.

## How much does each way pay out on a 1-5 bet?

Since the each-way bet from above only stipulated that the each-way pays out 1/4 on a 1-5 placing, the payout of the each way would be cut down by the percentage of the actual full placing he achieved.
