Quail Hollow Championship
Tiger and Phil are both committed to playing in the Quail Hollow Championship and the two golfers have the best odds to win the event.
The Quail Hollow Championship is a tournament that has been on the PGA Tour schedule since 2003 and the defending champion is Sean O’Hair. The field this year is a solid one, as many of the top players in the world will be competing. Seven of the world’s top 10 players will be teeing it off at Quail Hallow.
The course is a par 72 course with a yardage of 7,442 with Bermuda grass and length and putting is premium for the tournament that is one of the best venues on the PGA Tour.
Tiger Woods has the best odds to win the Quail Hollow Championship posted at 3.85/1 at Bovada. His fourth place finish at the Masters, which is his only event this season, showed that he can still contend even after a long layoff and will this tournament be his first win of 2010?
Bovada has Phil Mickelson is at 9/1 and he will be looking to follow up on his Masters win with another win in the South in this tournament. Lefty has done well at Quail Hollow, as he has finished in the top-10 at this event four times in six appearances and two times in the last three years. He ranks fourth in on tour in birdies per round and he will need to drive well like he did at Augusta to win this tournament.
Lee Westwood is at 17/1 at Bovada and the runner up finisher at the Maters will be looking to place well in an early tune up for the US Open. He will not be a birdie machine, but if he putts well he has a solid shot to win this weekend.
Bovada has Jim Furyk at 20/1 to win this weekend and he won this event back in 2006. Furyk already has two wins this season and is ranked number two on the money list. He ranks eighth on tour so far this season in driving accuracy and 38th in birdies per round and has the game to do well at Quail Hallow.
2008 Quail Hallow champion Anthony Kim is at 23/1 to win and he has had a great season so far even though he has yet to win a tournament. Kim ranks third on tour in birdies per round and will have to drive the ball well and keep it in play to contend.
Other than the aforementioned golfers the others are long shots to win at Quail Hallow this weekend. Other players that have some of the best odds to win are Boo Weekley (33/1), Padraig Harrington (33/1), Retief Goosen (35/1), Camilo Villegas (37/1), Nick Watney (39/1), Hunter Mahan (41/1), and defending champion Sean O’Hair (41/1).
