Odds to Win the 2012 Player’s Championship
The best players in the world will be out this week for the 2012 Player’s Championship. The tournament will be played at the Players Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Oddsmakers have Rory McIlroy as the favorite and this is not a bad choice considering his play last week, as well as so far this season. He tied for 2nd last week and has finished in the top 5 in 6 of his last 8 tournaments.
Right behind McIlroy is Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, both at +1200. Donald is 2nd and Westwood is 3rd in the world rankings. Although they are both striking the ball well so far this season, I’m just not feeling either of these guys as the winner. They might be worth a look at a top 3 or 5 if the odds are right.
I always like Mickelson’s chances in any tournament. He has definitely played well this year and has the potential to get hot and win the event. I like him at +1800 much better than Tiger at the same odds. I’m not quite sure how Woods is 7th in the world with Phil in 10th. It is hard for golf experts to accept the fact that the old Tiger is gone.
Webb Simpson at +3800 gets my attention. He played well last week at the Wells Fargo Championship and finished 4th after a 1 over par Sunday. He could have very well been in the playoff or won it outright with a little better day. Not sure he will play strong 2 weeks in a row. Although I generally hate taking favorites, I think Rory is a very good possibility to win this week.
