Odds to Win the Hero World Challenge

Odds to Win the Hero World Challenge

The PGA Tour season is technically on hiatus until January, but that doesn’t mean the action on the links is stopping any time soon. This week brings the 2019 edition of the Hero World Challenge at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas, presented by Tiger Woods as a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

At Bovada, Jon Rahm is the +400 favorite, with Justin Thomas (+700), Patrick Cantlay (+800), Tiger Woods (+800), Xander Schauffele (+900), Webb Simpson (+1200), Rickie Fowler (+1400), Justin Rose (+1600), Bryson DeChambeau (+1800) and Gary Woodland (+1800) comprising the rest of the top 10.

Short Field Makes for Added Drama

The Hero World Challenge is especially unique because it consists of an 18-man field. The most recent winners of the four major PGA tournaments will be in the mix along with the top 11 available players in the Official World Golf Ranking, the defending champ and two special exemption players who are chosen by the foundation.

The event is recognized as an unofficial money event by the PGA Tour and offers Official World Golf Ranking points. The prize fund for this year’s Hero World Challenge is $3.5 million.

Can Rahm Repeat in the Bahamas?

Rahm is back to defend his title after emerging triumphant here a year ago. The Spaniard comes into the tournament fresh off an excellent showing at the DP World Tour Championship and is clearly comfortable in his surroundings at Albany, having won by four strokes over runner-up Tony Finau in 2018.

The course, a 7,309-yard par 72, is designed by the legendary Ernie Els. Since the tournament shifted to Albany Golf Course five years ago, Henrik Stenson’s 262 in 2014 has served as the course record.

This is the final tune-up for golfers before the Presidents Cup gets underway on December 9. Looking for a Presidents Cup preview? We have you covered.
