Golf betting odds will have Mickelson as the likely favorite in the tournament.
Golf betting fans always like to cheer for Mickelson who is second on the 2007 PGA TOUR money list and has three wins so far in the 2007 season. “To say we are thrilled to have Phil play in the Fry’s Electronics Open would be an understatement,” tournament chairman Greg Hoyt said. “It will be great for Valley golf fans to watch Phil come back to play at his home course at Grayhawk.” Other possible golf betting favorites this week are John Rollins who is 23rd on the money list, Robert Allenby who is 26th and Tim Clark who is 30th. The field includes 16 of the Top 50 money winners on the 2007 PGA TOUR. The full field of 132 will be competing for a very nice prize purse of $5 million with the winner receiving $900,000.
Golf betting odds show that a number of top players are threats to win the tournament. In addition to Mickelson the golf betting odds have Aaron Baddeley as a popular choice along with Aaron Oberholser Charles Howell III, Stephen Ames and Mike Weir. Also popular in golf betting are golfers Davis Love III, Justin Leonard and Jesper Parnevik. Two golfers that might be worth betting as possible long shots on the golf betting board include Brandt Snedeker who is 17th on the money list and Bubba Watson who leads the Tour in driving distance. The golf betting should be very entertaining for the Fry’s Electronics Open.
Golf betting fans will want to know that the tournament begins on Thursday, October 18th and concludes Sunday, October 21st and will be televised by the Golf Channel.
