Thanks to Buick’s close partnership with golf betting odds legend Tiger Woods, this tournament has become one of the biggest of the golf odds season. But even without the aid of the biggest draw in the golf betting odds, this tournament would be among the best in golf odds.
The tournament itself has existed in one from or another since 1958 when the first golf odds tournament was played. The first Buick Open golf odds event was held at the Warwick Hills Country Club in Grand Blanc, Michigan. For a decade this was a regular golf betting odds event on the PGA Calendar. But by the late 1960s this golf odds stop had been eliminated by the PGA. Interest in golf odds Pro-Ams and other events pushed the golf betting odds tournament to the back burner of fan interest.
It wasn’t until 1977 that the PGA Tour golf odds powers that be brought the event back to the PGA schedule, much to the delight of the golf odds fans. In 1978 the tournament was moved to back to its present golf odds location at the Warwick Hills course after spending a year at the Flint Golf Club. During that time the Flint course had been the more popular of the golf betting odds venues but the hosting of the Buick Open cemented the Warrick Hills course place among its golf odds competition, where the event has been held ever since.
The course plays quite long and the golf odds are generally dominated by the long ball hitters. Woods has been victorious here on several occasions as has golf odds legend Vijay Singh. The layout is perfect for the driver and scores can go very low against the golf odds if the weather cooperates.
For many golf odds fans the Buck was well known as an August fixture in the golf betting odds schedule, but since the FedEx Cup started the tournament has been moved to the end of June. The Buick used to be best known as a warm up for the PGA Championship. However, now the Buick is carving out a name for itself as the golf odds warm up for the British Open.
