Our review of the Ultimate Golf Tips service from Tipsters Empire has been cut short after losing a staggering amount in the past two months. We have recorded losses in excess of 60 points each month and have now bust our betting bank.
When we started the review a 125 point bank was advised but we have noticed this has now been altered to 200 points. Given how things have gone during our review, we're not even sure if 200 points would be enough to handle the variance.
On a more positive note, we were impressed with the write ups that the tipster produced and it's obvious that he's very clued up about golf.
The issue is that betting at high odds means that wins are going to be few and far between and the majority of us would not have the patience to ride it out.

We could not fault the professionalism of this service, however the bank management has let it down and after losing more than 130 points in two months, it's a clear fail.
Ultimate Golf Tips Review: Update One
9th September 2018
Betting on golf can be a bit of a nightmare and the first set of results for our review of Ultimate Golf Tips has proven it, with a whopping 69.7 points lost in the first month.
This has brought our 125 point starting bank down to 55.34 points, which is a 55.7% decrease.
There were just 2 bets that returned a profit throughout the whole month and one of those was a 2 ball bet at odds of 1.67. The other was a tournament winner bet that paid out at place odds of 12/1 which was a nice return, but not nearly enough to make any impact on what we had already lost.

Ultimate Golf Tips Review: Introduction
8th August 2018
Tipsters Empire's new resident golf tipster has been causing a stir with their new service, Ultimate Golf Tips, already hitting a 90/1 winner during their proofing.
Since April they have delivered a profit of 172.71 points at a staggering ROI of 61.3%, generating an average monthly profit of £450.56 to £10 stakes.
The tipster has apparently been involved in golf betting for nearly three decades and has been betting professionally on golf for around 15 years. He's worked for several bookmakers and odds compilers in the past, where he was able to make connections to both the European and PGA Tours.
He uses his knowledge and connections to compile his own prices and takes a long-term view with his betting, with many selections being at double figure prices.
With his tips he includes a write-up as to why he thinks the selection offers good value and he also evaluates the tournament as it is running, sometimes picking out more selections as it progresses.
The selections are generally sent out on a Tuesday or Wednesday but there can sometimes be more tips later in the week.
A betting bank of 125 points is advised, although the results started with a 100 point bank. This may have been added in afterwards, as we can see there was quite a big drawdown during the first couple of months.
We will be back next month with our first update where we hope to have hit some juicy winners.
Welcome to our Ultimate Golf Tips review, a service from Tipsters Empire that provides betting advice for European and PGA golf tours.
