Golf Betting: Price or Place - which do you go for?

    I was wondering what most golf bettors go for when choosing a firm for their each way golf bets?

    This year BetVictor and PaddyPower pay out on the first six places, whereas most other firms go five.

    For The Open this year, BetVictor went eight places.

    The drawback is that usually the more places, the shorter the price quoted.

    I'm never sure if I should go for the best price or the most places. Often I'll sit on the fence and split my stake between the best price and most place firms.

    In this weeks Racing and Football Outlook, golf writer Jeremy Chapman has a few paragraphs on this matter. He tipped Hideki Matsuyama for The Open, who was in a three way tie for sixth.
    Coral were best price at 300/1, but that was for five places. A Matsuyama bet would have been a loser. BetVictor and Betfred went eight places, but had him priced at 150/1. In the case of this golfer, Boylesports would have been the best to bet with, 250/1, seven places, effectively paying at over 40/1.

    So, in this pole I ask, do you go for the best price, the most places, or do a half stake on best price and a half stake on most places?
