I know it is not DIRECTLY golf related, but there are implications.

Do you play Daily Fantasy Sports golf? If so, will you stop playing it?

Personally, then "dream" of winning $100,000 off a $5 entry still out weighs making $100 off a $20 bet on 5-1 odds. For me at least.

    Should be interesting to see how states decide to regulate this. I imagine eventually there will be app based gambling, but the states that will legalize first will probably use existing casinos to run sports gambling initially. This won’t make me more likely to play daily fantasy but from a golf perspective, I’m interested to see what, if anything, this will do for purses on tour and how golf telecasts will change to accommodate betting once it becomes more widespread.

    Probably won’t change very quickly as states need to pass legislation to legalize it within their territories.

    If you're in PA, WV, NJ, & one or two others I can't recall, you'll be betting legally in time for football season.

    Why is gambling, of any kind, any different than the NYSE?

    there's tax implications involved

    that's why most people will still go to their local bookie. All cash homie.
