Online golf fans will want to know that the tournament is played on the Palm and Magnolia courses at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Online golf fans will have a chance to bet the last event of the season with excellent golf odds. Last year the purse was $4,600,000, with $828,000 going to the winner. Those numbers are expected to be the same again this year. Fans of online golf betting may remember that the tournament was founded in 1971 as the Walt Disney World Open Invitational. After 36 years of having "Disney" in the tournament name, a new sponsor was announced beginning this year and it is the Children’s Miracle Network. The defending champion is Joe Durant and he is expected to be back to defend his title for online golf fans.
Many of the top PGA players in the world will not be part of the golf odds since the event is the last one of the season. It is possible that some top golfers will enter at the last minute because they want to support the Children’s Miracle Network. The tournament will still be held on the Magnolia and Palm courses at Walt Disney World Resort and the Golf Channel will televise all four rounds. Golf odds could be affected as this is the concluding tournament in the PGA TOUR season and it could have an impact on which players make the top 125 players on the final Official Money List who become fully eligible for the following season’s FedExCup. Fans that follow online golf betting know that it is also the last chance for a player to gain entry into the season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship, which is limited to tournament winners from the previous season. Online golf fans know that it may also affect the Top 30 on the Official Money List, which would earn a spot in the following year’s Masters and U.S. Open.
